2015 Acura TLX: Classy and Comfortable for Four Adults
by Brent Romans, Senior Automotive Editor on September 22, 2015
My wife and I recently went on a couples' date with friends of ours. Rather than taking two cars, we offered to pick them up at their house. I had our long-term 2015 Acura TLX for the weekend, so it seemed like a good opportunity to see how comfortably it could carry four adults.
Total drive time wasn't very long, maybe 20 minutes each way, but our friends said the TLX's back seat was pretty comfortable. They're both of average height (approximately 5-foot 10-inches for one and 5-foot 6-inches for the other). They also liked the TLX well enough, observing that it was "pretty classy."
The next day, I plopped myself in back to check out the TLX for myself. There's a useful amount of legroom, and I like the overall bolstering, armrest padding and seatback angle. Our friends were right; it's a seat that you can relax in.
The only downside for adult passengers back there might be headroom. I'm guessing that a passenger 6-feet or taller will be rubbing his or her head on the headliner. For this class of car though, that's a pretty minor demerit.
