Honda’s premium Acura brand in the US has unveiled its new TLX sedan at the New York Auto Show, which will eventually replace both the TL and TSX in the US market.

Released as a prototype at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year, the TLX may preview a replacement for the ageing Honda Accord Euro for Australian buyers; if a new ‘Euro’ for the local market is indeed on the cards at all.

The road-going TLX wears larger mirrors and smaller wheels than the concept version, and has also received a slight re-tone from the concept’s styling.

Power comes from a 2.4 litre four-cylinder petrol engine producing 154kW while a 3.5 litre V6 producing 216kW is also available.

While the Accord Euro in Australia offers a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic, matched only with a 2.4 litre petrol engine, the TLX introduces an all-new eight-speed auto for the 2.4 litre and a nine-speed auto for the V6 in the US.

Front-wheel-drive is the standard method of delivering power to the road, but the TLX is also available with Acura’s SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive) system.

Acura has focused on weight reduction in the TLX, with the top-spec V6 fitted with the Technology Pack weighing 66kg less than the equivalent TL model it replaces.

Inside, the TLX comes with a ‘Smart Entry’ keyless entry system with push-button start, a seven-inch touch screen and GPS-linked automatic climate control.

Pricing for the 2015 Acura TLX in the US has yet to be confirmed, but the new model is set to arrive in US showrooms later this year.

As for a new Honda Accord Euro, watch this space. Also keep an eye on Honda's Beijing unveiling of a new Spirior concept - a badge usually worn by China's version of the Accord Euro.
