Pros

Good balance between luxury and sportiness; available all-wheel drive; good fuel economy; advanced transmission options; available A-Spec Sport Tuned Suspension

Model Highlights

Base TLX models come with a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine making 206 hp. Power is sent to the front wheels via an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, which features a torque converter to smooth out any jerkiness in the drivetrain during low speed operation. The optional engine is a 3.5L V6 making 290 hp. Power is sent to either the front, or with Acura's SH-AWD system, all-four wheels via a 9-speed automatic transmission.

Acura worked to improve the sports credibility of the TLX with the addition of the A-Spec package with a unique suspension and quick ratio steering setup paired with the 4-wheel steering system allowing the TLX to be both nimble and stable when carving up a twisty road.

Acura offers a choice of 4-cylinder or V6 engines and front-wheel or SH-AWD all-wheel drive, each of which can each be ordered with a Technology Package or Advanced Package. A-Spec is available with both V6 and Technology Package boxes checked.

Standard equipment levels are excellent. The base TLX comes equipped with LED headlights, Bluetooth connectivity, SiriusXM satellite radio, a rearview camera, keyless access, a multi-function display, Siri eyes free functionality and USB and iPod connectivity.

Buyers who opt for the Technology Package get a navigation system with real-time traffic updates, a premium audio system with HD radio, a colored display screen, a perforated leather trimmed interior, rain sensing wipers, lane assist and lane departure warning systems as well as blind spot and forward collision warning systems.

The all-new A-Spec package utilizing a quicker steering ratio, sporty suspension, and lower profile tires demonstrates excellent handling ability without compromise of comfort. The A-Spec is available with black or red Alcantara leather interior with contrasting stitching, exclusive Still Night Blue Pearl exterior paint, Shark Gray 19-inch wheels and unique round LED fog lamps.

The V6-powered TLX comes in both front and all-wheel drive configurations, though all-wheel drive versions always come equipped with either the Technology or the Advanced Package.

Safety systems across the TLX line include anti-lock brakes, traction control and stability control. Front, side, side curtain and driver's knee airbags are all standard.

Model News

The newly introduced A-Spec package brings a more driver-orientated experience to the TLX in 2018. It includes 19-inch wheels, black exterior trim, better bolstered seats dampened by stiffer springs and larger diameter sway bars. All models have newly refreshed front bumper mesh grilles and updated infotainment systems for ease of use by streamlining menus.

Value Writeup

With a base price starting at just under $34,000, TLX represents an excellent value. Competitors include the Lexus ES350, the Mercedes-Benz CLS, the Audi A4 and the BMW 3-series. The TLX, with its strong feature set and low price of entry, undercuts many of its rivals, while still offering plenty of space, sophisticated drivetrains and a modern chassis.

Note Regarding Driver Rating:

Male: Average sized adult male dummy in 35-MPH crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs. Female: Small-sized adult female dummy in 35-mph crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs.

Rollover Note: Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
