Acura TLX 2018 sedan Trim Shown: 2018 2.4L sedan FWD Sequential
  • Road Test

The TLX has potential but lacks panache, ultimately falling short of the best luxury compact sedans. It's available with either a four- or a six-cylinder engine, but AWD is available only with the V6. The 2.4-liter uses an eight-speed automated manual that delivers quick, direct shifts and contributes to the very good 27 mpg overall. The V6 is a gem, with plenty of power, but it is paired with a nine-speed automatic that shifts roughly. We found the ride quite comfortable and handling to be responsive, although it is not sporty. The cabin is quiet, but the infotainment system is awkward to use and distracting, and rear-seat room is so-so. For 2018 the TLX got an update, which includes an exterior freshening, making the AcuraWatch suite of safety equipment standard, adding luxury features to the interior, and tweaks to the suspension and steering.

Acura TLX 2017 Trim Shown: 2017 FWD V6 Advance
The TLX is Acura's best sedan, but it still doesn't quite measure up to the competition. It's available with either a four- or a six-cylinder engine; all-wheel drive is only available with the V6. The 2.4-liter uses an eight-speed automatic that delivers quick, direct shifts and contributes to the very good 27 mpg overall. The V6 is a gem, with plenty of power, but its nine-speed automatic shifts roughly and uses an annoying pushbutton shifter. Handling is responsive, but not sporty, although the ride is quite comfortable. The cabin is quiet, but rear-seat room is so-so. Featuring two different screens, the infotainment system is unintuitive to use. A generous roster of advanced safety systems includes front-collision mitigation, lane-departure warning, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitors. A 2018 update makes the AcuraWatch suite of safety equipment standard, as well as adding luxury features and tweaking the suspension and steering.
