American Honda Motor Co., Inc. has confirmed that it will debut the all-new 2015 Honda Fit and the newly-named 2015 Acura TLX Prototype at the upcoming North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) held in Detroit in January 2014.
2015 Honda Fit for US Market The 2015 Fit will build on the outgoing model’s innovative packaging, flexible cargo capability and fun-to-drive character with spirited new styling, an even more spacious and refined interior packed with leading-edge connected car technologies. The third generation Fit is set to offer enhanced fuel-efficiency and performance courtesy of its all-new platform and Earth Dreams Technology powertrain. Equipped with the Honda-exclusive next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, the new Fit is also anticipated to earn class-leading safety ratings.
The Honda press conference will take place at NAIAS on 13th January, at 2:40pm.
2015 Acura TLX Prototype 2015 Acura TLX Prototype will mark the debut of a performance luxury mid-size sedan that replaces the outgoing TL model. In conjunction with the launch of the production TLX in the second half of next year, Acura will discontinue sales of the TSX model in 2014, as it moves to clarify its sedan line up with a clear hierarchy of three distinct models – the entry luxury ILX, mid-size TLX sports sedan, and flagship RLX performance sedan.
The all-new model will feature more emotional styling with tidier, sports sedan proportions wrapped around two all-new advanced powertrains that provide even more dynamic performance. The all-new Acura TLX will offer a wider range of choices with two all-new, high-performance and highly fuel-efficient direct-injected engines, each mated to an all-new advanced transmission, and with available in two-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive configurations.
“This all-new Acura TLX is the perfect blend of style and muscle with its elegant, well-proportioned exterior that cloaks the true sport sedan chassis and powertrain beneath,” said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president, American Honda Motor, Co., Inc. “The sporty characteristics that customers found appealing in the TSX are even more pronounced in this aggressive new TLX.”
The Honda press conference will take place at NAIAS on 13th January, at 2:40pm and the Acura press conference will take place on 14th January, 11:05am, US Eastern Time(EST).
