  • 2018 Acura TLX dashboard

    With the release of the 2018 Acura TLX, getting all the technologies that you desire in a luxury performance sedan has just gotten a whole lot easier! The TLX base model’s $33,000 MSRP* price tag is low for its segment, but there’s nothing spare about this one-of-a-kind sedan. No matter which of the TLX trim levels you select, you’ll receive a host of connectivity, convenience, and safety technologies that you won’t find in competitors. Other writers, like those at Car and Driver, have heaped praise on the recently redesigned TLX, and it’s not too tough to see why. Find out just what the new TLX has to offer by reading on below, and once you’ve seen enough, get in touch with us to schedule a test drive!

TLX Media, Connectivity, and Convenience Features


No modern sedan is complete without a compelling suite of bells, whistles, and toys, and those that have been made available in the TLX are sure to pique the interest of Chicagoland’s drivers. For starters, the TLX offers dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button ignition, steering wheel–mounted controls, and keyless Smart Entry right in its baseline trim, and those who upgrade will have even more to appreciate. Voice-recognition technology, GPS-linked climate control, and an Acura Navigation System with 3D view all come standard with the TLX Technology package.


Even after identifying these comfort and convenience features, we’ve barely scratched the surface of what the TLX is offering. SiriusXM Radio, Pandora Internet Radio, a USB audio interface, and Bluetooth streaming audio come standard in every package, and depending on which upgrades you choose, you’ll receive one of two powerful stereo setups: a seven-speaker Acura Premium Audio System or a 10-speaker ELS Studio Premium Audio system. Drivers will be able to take advantage of these technologies using the Acura’s On Demand Multi-Use Display 2.0, and when they connect a compatible smartphone, they’ll also have access to Siri Eyes Free, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and even text and e-mail message reading. Additionally, those who upgrade to the TLX Technology Package will receive more advanced connectivity features like AcuraLink The Next Generation and Acura Real-Time Traffic.

Advanced TLX Safety Features


High-end technology improves nearly every aspect of the Acura TLX’s functioning, and its superiority is especially clear when we look to its standard safety features! Although some of its most impressive offerings are available only in its upper-level trims, even the safety features that come standard on the TLX will give you plenty of reasons to get excited. In the first place, it’s worth noting that every TLX comes standard with computer-powered driver-assistance features that can take the stress out of driving. These include a collision mitigation braking system, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, a lane keeping assist system, and road departure mitigation! Some of this model’s other standard safety features include a multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, Next Generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure, and LED daytime running lights. The TLX Technology Package offers even more advanced features like rain-sensing windshield wipers, a rear cross traffic monitor, and a blind spot information system. On top of all this, a head-up warning system and front/rear parking sensors become available with the A-SPEC Package, and a stunning surround-view camera system comes standard with the Advance Package.

Unbeatable Performance with TLX Technology Features


Acura has also put their technological know-how to use in this Acura’s drivetrain, and when you have a good sense of what these components can do, you’ll be able to enjoy its incredible energy day in and day out. The Acura TLX comes standard with an Inline 4-cylinder engine and Precision All-Wheel Steering technology. Drivers who want even more power and control will be able to upgrade with a 290-hp V6 engine that’s available even in the TLX’s baseline trim. What’s more, all V6 models can be equipped with Acura’s signature Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive, which uses an innovative combination of gas and electric power to enhance the TLX’s handling capability.
