2018 Acura TLX Review

Overview
The Acura TLX proves that a luxury sports sedan doesn’t have to concentrate on one thing at the expense of the other. A cabin this comfortable—and world-class performance too? Yep it’s true. You can have it all. Choose from 4 models starting with the Standard and moving through the sport-inspired A-Spec. Two engines are available: a 2.4-liter inline four; and a 3.5-liter V-6. No stumbling forced-induction here; just pure naturally aspirated power. And V-6 models come with your choice of Precision All-Wheel Steer or Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive. Inside the cabin a dual-zone climate-control system keeps everyone comfortable while active sound control lets everyone use their indoor voices. An available ELS Studio premium audio system turns your TLX into a concert hall on wheels. And from driver-assist features to the infotainment system every TLX is packed with technology. AcuraWatch is standard on all models and includes forward collision warning and lane-keep assist. Bluetooth hands-free calling Apple CarPlay Android Autoit’s all here. Choose from a variety of colors and Acura Genuine Accessories and build your very own TLX. The Acura TLX. The best of both worlds.
Technology
Every Acura TLX comes packed with technology. Bluetooth hands-free calling Apple CarPlay Android Auto—it’s all there in the dual-screen infotainment system. Add navigation with AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic and you’re not just a more connected driver you’re a smarter driver. Need to charge your smartphone? Cut the cord with the available wireless charge pad. Hands full when you get to your TLX? Keyless access unlocks the doors—then sets your seat music and temperature preferences. The Acura TLX. Better by design.
Safety
The Acura TLX is so safe it got a 5-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Standard AcuraWatch advanced driver assist systems alert you to things you might miss—like that car slamming on its brakes in front of you. Additional safety features like blind-spot and rear cross-traffic monitoring are available too. And if worse comes to worst Acura Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure evenly distributes frontal crash energy reducing forces transferred to the passenger compartment. The Acura TLX. Better by design.
Performance
The Acura TLX proves luxury performance cars don’t have to sacrifice one trait for the other. Two engines are available: a 2.4-liter inline four; and a 3.4-liter V-6. No stumbling forced-induction here; just pure naturally aspirated power. And V-6s come with your choice of Precision All-Wheel Steer or Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive. Agile Handling Assist uses brake-torque vectoring to help your TLX carve through corners. This unique system applies braking forces to the inside wheels to help rotate the car around turns. The Acura TLX. Better by design.
