Restyled Performance Sedan

2018 TLX

For Wisconsin area drivers who require a little more sport from their luxury sport sedan, fear not! The 2018 TLX is here to save you from the mundane and uninspired. Redesigned and roady-ready, Acura has introduced a new A-SPEC package that adds even more substance and style to an already aggressive TLX lineup.



What a ride

Very few sport sedans walk the line between power and efficiency quite like the 2018 TLX. Whether you choose the 2.4L inline-four engine or the 3.5L V6 with SH-AWD, the TLX will make less trips to the gas pump. Borrowing a few performance-enhancing features from the NSX supercar’s playbook, the 2018 TLX comes equipped with a Dual-Clutch transmission, an Integrated Dynamics System, and available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) which contribute to one of the most responsive luxury sport sedans in its class.

That means each TLX will employ advanced safety features like Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), a Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM), and a Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS). Other standard equipment such as Daytime Running Lights (DRL), various braking systems, a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), and the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) child-seat mounting system have solidified the TLX’s position atop the luxury sedan segment as one of the safest cars on the road today.
