These vehicle models are specifically built to provide performance, style, and technology that will surprise and thrill you each and every time. Keep reading to learn more about the Acura A-SPEC models.

What the A-SPEC Badge Means

Currently, the only vehicles in Acura’s lineup donning this prestigious badge are the Acura ILX and the Acura TLX. With the 2017 Acura ILX, when you opt for the A-SPEC model, you’re also in store for a huge suite of standard technology features alongside the new styling. Stylish new features include 18-inch alloy noise-reducing wheels, A-SPEC rear spoiler, side sills, perforated Lux Suede seating surfaces with contrast stitching and ebony headliner, and red instrument panel illumination.

With the 2018 Acura TLX, you are getting a sportier performance as well as a sportier appearance. Like the ILX, it comes with an A-SPEC badge and other great features such as black Alcantara or red leather seating with contrast stitching and piping, dark chrome taillight details and grille, and so much more. Performance gets exciting with a 3.5L V6 engine that boasts up to 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. With this engine, drivers get standard front wheel drive with Precision All-Wheel Steer system, but have the option to upgrade to a Super Handling All-Wheel Drive System. Efficiency is kept in mind as the vehicle receives an EPA-estimated 20 mpg city and 30 mpg highway when equipped with this powertrain setup.*

Both vehicles with the A-SPEC badge share similar technology upgrades over lower trim levels. A few of these features the vehicles have in common include the following:

  • ELS Premium Audio System with 10 speakers
  • Acura Navigation System with AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic, Exclusive Street and Freeway Conditions, and Traffic Rerouting
  • GPS-Linked Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control System
