Integrated Dynamics System

Acura TLX 2021 Integrated Dynamics System

Gone are the days when a dynamic driving experience was limited to Drive, 1st, 2nd and 3rd. With the Integrated Dynamics System (IDS), TLX owners not only enjoy a 10-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, but four unique driving modes: Comfort, Normal, Sport and the customizable Individual mode.


  • The IDS dial on the center console lets the driver cycle through the driving modes and view them on the Multi-Information Display (MID) and center display.
  • COMFORT –Reduces sensitivity to minor throttle input changes, allowing more consistent engine speed and a smooth ride.
  • NORMAL – A balanced, mix of comfort and handling.
  • SPORT – The power steering assist is reduced to increase steering feel and feedback. You get an aggressive and fun shifting algorithm. Response levels for the available SH-AWD® and the drive-by-wire throttle are heightened. Active Sound Control is diminished to let in more of the beautiful engine note.
  • INDIVIDUAL – Experience the full potential of the TLX on your own terms. You choose the settings for throttle response, steering, shifting and engine sound. Create up to five pre-programmed settings for a customized driving experience.
