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.
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.
