2015 Acura TLX SH-AWD: Utility When You Need It
by Ed Hellwig, Executive Editor on February 18, 2016
Before I left to pick up these eight-foot long boards at the local lumber yard, I thought twice about bringing our 2015 Acura TLX. Maybe I should take my wife's Volvo wagon instead; they would surely fit in that car.
Then again, why not give the TLX a shot?
The three boards were eight-feet long, a foot wide and an inch thick. After folding the rear seats down I had a fairly wide opening to slide them in. They extended right up to the middle of the center console before the back end tucked into the corner of the trunk.
The only real constraint was the opening between the front seats. I turned the boards to make them fit, but I could have adjusted the passenger seatback, too, if I really need more room. It was that simple. In fact, a guy who watched me do it from a few cars away even remarked as much, saying he didn't think there was any way I was going to get them in there just looking at it.
