Acura is bringing back some fun to its TLX lineup with the debut of the new 2018 Acura TLX. The model, which is one of Acura’s best-selling vehicles besides the MDX, recently received a new TLX A-Spec model that will offer those that are looking for a sportier drive, a better option. Not only that, the 2018 Acura TLX will also be one of the most advanced and well-equipped vehicles in its segment with new features like Apple CarPlay, Android Audio, and AcuraWatch as standard option across all trim levels.
“We’ve really upped the ante in terms of styling, emotion and road presence, more effectively communicating the TLX’s dynamic capabilities,” said Jon Ikeda, Acura vice president and general manager.
The 2018 Acura TLX V6 A-Spec will be offered in front and SH-AWD options and will add some sporty touches like round LED fog lights, aggressive side sills, a rear diffuser with round dual-exhaust finishers, dark finish 19-inch wheels, a sport-tuned suspension, and a retuned electric power steering
The Acura TLX A-Spec with SH-AWD will also get a rear stabilizer bar and stiffer springs for better control. Take a seat inside, and the Acura TLX A-Spec is offered with some sporty features like red meter highlights, brushed aluminum interior trim, a thicker steering wheel and two exclusive interior color choices are offered: Red leather or Black leather with Alcantara seat and door trims.
For those worried about safety, as we mentioned above, all 2018 Acura TLX models will come standard with AcuraWatch driver assist technologies. That will give buyers of the new TLX Collision Mitigation Braking System, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Road Departure Mitigation.
It seems like Acura is really stepping up the game with the 2018 Acura TLX. So if you’re in the market for a mid-size luxury sedan, give the new 2018 TLX a test drive!
