2015 Acura TLX: No Heated Steering Wheel or Soup for You

by Brent Romans, Senior Automotive Editor on November 18, 2015

2015 Acura TLX

Winter is here. You picked your 2015 Acura TLX V6 SH-AWD for its all-wheel-drive capability. Heated front seats come standard. You thought you were ready. But even if you have a fully loaded TLX with the Technology and Advance packages, there's no way to get it with a heated steering wheel.

It's a curious omission for a luxury sedan.

I'm not expecting a standard heated steering wheel on the TLX. Optional is perfectly fine. Our long-term Volvo S60 has one. Heck, our Renegade has a heated steering wheel. You can also get a heated steering wheel on almost all of the TLX's rivals, including the BMW 3 Series, Buick Regal, Cadillac ATS, Infiniti Q50, Lexus ES 350, Lincoln MKZ and Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

In fairness, the Audi A4 doesn't offer one, and neither do the Audi A3 and Mercedes CLA-Class. All the same, it'd be nice to see Acura round out the TLX's repertoire with a heated steering wheel.
