First the vehicle gets sports sedan proportions and the red paint on it looks attractive. The front is somewhat aggressive with a rather small grille without much space and has some resemblance with a Mercedes Benz.
The lower part of the front steals the show with the large air inlets that give the vehicle an aggressive predator-like look. The LED headlights are jewel Eye and are not wide and stretch to the side to complement the angry sporty face. From the side the 2015 TLX looks like any other sporty sedan only that there are fewer interruptions. The rear end has a great finish with the space on the bumper giving it a sportier look.
