2020 Acura TLX Pricing and Specs Steering Electric Power-Assisted Rack-and-Pinion Steering

The finely tuned Motion-Adaptive Electronic Power Steering system enhances driver-vehicle synergy. With Integrated Dynamics System (IDS) standard on all TLX models, drivers can even select the type of steering they want to experience.

  • Motion-Adaptive control logic helps distinguish between desired and undesired road feedback, resulting in more accurate steering feel in every driving environment.
  • IDS provides a lighter steering feel in Economy and Normal settings but a significantly firmer feel in Sport and Sport+ mode.
  • A quick steering ratio gives a sporty response to any input.
  • Power steering assist varies with vehicle speed. In parking lots at low speed, all IDS settings offer light steering feel. On the highway, the feeling is much firmer.
  • A cast magnesium brace supports the steering column and reduces steering vibration not related to road feel.
