The figure cut by the TLX was already handsome, and the latest updates keep it looking fresh. The downturned-pentagon grille with its concentric diamond pattern and five-bulb LED headlights are Acura signatures and make the TLX look distinct within its class. For 2019, there’s a new 19-inch wheel design. The Black Copper Pearl exterior color has been removed and Platinum White Pearl replaces Bellanova White Pearl. The cabin of the TLX is premium for all five occupants.1
If you want a smaller luxury sedan that packs big value, check out the 2019 Acura TLX. It undercuts rivals with a sub-$34,000 starting price yet also packs a long list of standard tech and safety features that includes automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and Apple CarPlay integration.2
Key to the Acura TLX’s charm is its authenticity. Although it offers a good measure of performance, especially in the way it takes curves and turns, the TLX isn’t trying to match its global competitors in adrenaline output. Instead, it ties together satisfying speed and power, with impressive levels of comfort and convenience. It’s still a smart choice if you seek a lot of value from a luxury sedan.3
The world’s first Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS) system on a production vehicle changes the game for front wheel driving, independently adjusting the rear wheel toe angles for increased agility and stability while cornering, changing lanes or braking.
Conquer the curves and the weather with available torque-vectoring Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD). Power gets distributed to the wheels that need it for seamless power transitions and supreme control. Requires V-6 engine.
Gone are the days when a dynamic driving experience was limited to Drive, 1st, 2nd and 3rd. With the new Integrated Dynamics System (IDS), TLX owners not only enjoy an 8-speed dual-clutch or 9-speed automatic transmission, but four unique driving modes: Economy, Normal, Sport and Sport+.
The standard TLX engine is anything but standard. The aluminum block, direct-injected 2.4-liter inline-4 powerplant delivers 206 high-revving horsepower at 6800 rpm, 182 lb. ft. of torque at 4500 rpm (both SAE net). Its light weight helps make handling nimble and fuel economy ratings notable.
The optional – and exceptional – engine choice for the TLX is a highly potent 3.5-liter, 290-horsepower V-6 engine (@ 6200 rpm, SAE net) with direct fuel injection, Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) and an i-VTEC system.
Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) is the ultimate sport handling choice for the TLX. This available sophisticated system boosts high-performance dry-road handling while providing the same all-weather advantages of conventional all-wheel drive. By continuously directing engine power to match weight distribution, available traction, driver input and other conditions, SH-AWD provides seamless power transitions and liberating agility.
Our A-Spec design underscores the sport performance of TLX. Adding to the dramatic stance are round LED fog lights, a dark chrome finish trim, exposed rounded dual exhaust outlets, and a gloss black decklid spoiler.
The V-6 TLX adds standard 18-in split 5-spoke wheels and a chrome-framed rear fascia with exposed dual exhaust outlets, with the Technology Package adding chrome accented side-sill extensions.
The 2.4-liter i-VTEC inline-4 cylinder TLX has a Diamond Pentagon front grille, lower bumper chrome trim, Jewel Eye LED headlights with LED turn signals and standard 17-inch wheels.
The On Demand Multi-Use Display (ODMD) provides exactly what you need at your fingertips. This intuitive eight-inch touchscreen consolidates the controls and information for audio, climate control, phone and more.
Standard equipped on every 2019 TLX, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration keeps drivers connected with apps, text messages, emails and music via their iPhone or compatible Android device.
Listen to music, access phone capabilities and charge your device wirelessly in the 2019 TLX. Experience the effortless convenience of available Qi-compatible wireless charging to keep your compatible smartphones connected and powered for the everyday.
Experience seats crafted from top grain Milano leather for a bold, modern look with durability. Designed for all-day comfort and lateral support, you’re beautifully-positioned to take on the road ahead. Included with Technology Package. Piping and stitching available on V-6 only.
Available ambient lighting gives a sophisticated finish to cabin surfaces. The A-Spec Package has distinct red LED interior lighting, while the Advance Package is illuminated in white. The impressive look amplifies human-centered performance.
Let your passengers reach their preferred comfort level with ease. Precision electronic control offers three heated temperature settings for the outboard seats – giving customized warmth throughout the TLX. Available with the Advance Package.
If the TLX detects a vehicle in an adjacent lane’s alert zone while going over 20 MPH, an indicator appears. If you signal in the direction of that vehicle, the indicator flashes and a warning beep sounds. Included in the Technology Package.
Gain awareness of vehicles detected approaching from either side when backing up. Using the Multi-View Rear Camera, sound and arrow indicators will alert you when an approaching vehicle is detected. Included in the Technology Package.
Giving drivers the ability to see more, our Advance Package comes with a Surround View Camera system for an unparalleled vantage point while parking. With six unique camera views, it also helps to uncover blind spots and potential obstacles.
To help reduce the likelihood or severity of a frontal impact, all TLX models feature the Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS). Powered by a combination of radar transmitter and forward-facing camera, the CMBS determines the distance and closing speed of detected objects that lie directly ahead.
In wet conditions, Vehicle Stability Assist can reduce the dangers of over and under steering and loss of traction by applying brakes at each wheel as needed and when necessary, reducing engine power.
Experience a heightened sense of your surroundings with the Advance and A-Spec packages. Our innovative parking sensors detect when the TLX is getting close to an object or surface with a series of beeps, which sound more rapid as you get closer.
