Pitch Perfect: The 2018 Acura TLX
The Acura TLX hits all the high notes.
It’s a powerful, luxurious, and practical four-door sedan with the looks and technical wonders to take on the world’s best. The TLX realizes a perfect harmony that’s increasingly hard to find.
TLX comes standard with a 2.4L, four-cylinder engine that delivers an impressive 206 horsepower. Its delivery is smooth, bold, and confident enough to convince even experienced drivers there’s a V6 under the hood.
For those who always need more, Acura offers an optional 3.5L V6. This formidable unit pumps out an ample 290 horsepower.
V6 models can be outfitted with Acura’s celebrated SH-AWD system. That’s Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive for the uninitiated. It’s Acura’s way of distributing power in perfect proportion to each wheel, resulting in scintillating all-weather cornering performance.
It wouldn’t be a luxury sedan without interior amenities, and Acura offers them in droves.
TLX comes standard with a leather-wrapped steering wheel and amazingly comfortable leatherette seats. Add the technology package to experience perforated top-grain Milano leather sport seats among many other advanced features.
In the TLX you’re plugged-in. Enjoy Apple CarPlay or AndroidAuto and their integration with your smartphone. Wireless charging is an available option.
Every TLX includes AcuraWatch. AcuraWatch brings Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Braking, Lane Keeping Assist, and a host of other advanced safety technologies.
