Get Ready for an Edgier Acura TLX for 2018

By Emily Eppley | July 20th, 2017

Look out for the new 2018 Acura TLX with class-leading technology and sporty new style. Reflecting the brand’s new design direction, the TLX has sleek and alluring exterior and inside the TLX offers AcuraWatch™ as standard equipment on all grades, making it a leader in luxury midsize sedans for the application of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies.

The new 2018 Acura starts with a hearty 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder engine that earns 206 horsepower and is paired with an 8-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) with torque converter. But you can upgrade the Advanced Performance package to get a 290 horsepower V6 engine that is pure power and mated to an exceptionally smooth 9-speed automatic transmission. Both options are agile, quick and come with a well-balanced sport-tuned suspension that provides an excellent driving experience.

“We’re enhancing the already outstanding dynamic performance of the Acura TLX by carrying our Precision Crafted Performance direction through to the exterior design,” said Jon Ikeda, vice president and general manager of Acura. “The addition of the new A-Spec further advances the TLX to a more distinctive position in the segment and enhances its appeal to a more performance oriented buyer.”

But that’s not all that’s new for the 2018 model, Acura added more standard safety features to the TLX at all trim levels. The AcuraWatch™ includes Collision Mitigation Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keeping Assist to help you avoid unwanted situations sooner than ever before. There’s also Blind Spot Information System, Rear Cross Traffic Monitor and more.
