2021 Acura TLX Review

The Acura TLX proves that a luxury sports sedan can do more than one thing at a time. A cabin this comfortable—and world-class performance too? It’s true. You can have it all. The TLX is available as one well-equipped model. Add the Technology Package for more convenience. Then add the A-Spec Package for more aggressive styling or the Advance Package for the ultimate in performance. A powerful turbocharged engine gives your TLX outstanding acceleration. Pull on the Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters for quick and seamless gear changes. Your choice of front- or Super Handling All-Wheel Drive give you outstanding control. Inside the cabin dual-zone automatic climate-control keeps everyone comfortable. Your choice of available ELS Studio premium audio systems turns your TLX into a concert hall. And from Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration to AcuraLink Connected Services to AcuraWatch Advanced Driver-Assist technologies every TLX is packed with technology. Choose from a variety of colors options and Acura Genuine Accessories and build a TLX that’s all yours. The Acura TLX. The best of both worlds.
Every Acura TLX comes packed with technology. AcuraLink Connected Services keeps you connected to the world so you can access the internet check emails and texts lock and unlock doors remotely get directions—you get the idea. Add AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic and steer clear of traffic jams forever. Available GPS-linked dual-zone climate control that uses solar sensors to measure the intensity and position of the sun. The temperature stays where it’s set—inside outside and on both sides of the cabin. The Acura TLX. Better by design.
The Acura TLX is so safe it got a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Standard AcuraWatch advanced driver assist systems alert you to things you might miss—like that car slamming on its brakes in front of you. Additional safety features like Blind-Spot and Rear Cross-Traffic Monitoring are available too. And if worse comes to worst Acura Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure evenly distributes frontal crash energy reducing forces transferred to the passenger compartment. The Acura TLX. Better by design.
The Acura TLX proves luxury-performance sedans don’t have to sacrifice performance for comfort. A turbocharged two-liter inline four provides the power. A ten-speed transmission keeps the engine in its sweet spot giving you every last pound-foot of torque. Available Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive delivers torque side-to-side and front-to-back as needed. Agile Handling Assist helps your TLX carve through corners. This unique system applies braking force to the inside wheels to help rotate the car around turns. Available Adaptive Dampers add even more control. The Acura TLX. Better by design.
