Introduction

The Acura TLX is a front-wheel-drive compact/midsize premium sedan that was launched as a 2015 and didn’t change for its first three years. Its merits were often lost in the arguments over whether its grille that looked like a vector-shaped shield was distinctive or ugly.

For 2018, TLX gets rid of that grille, with a cleaner front fascia, new LED self-dimming headlamps, and a subtly bulked-up hood. Inside, there’s ambient lighting piping on the sides of the center console, along with new seat designs.

There’s also a sporty new model with its own grille and fascia called the A-Spec, with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The Acura TLX A-Spec has a firmer suspension and amplified intake noise into the cabin. Heavily bolstered seats and a thick steering wheel are added to complement the suspension. In addition to distinctive exterior trim, there are 19-inch wheels and four-inch wide exhaust outlets in the rear bumper. It’s designed to challenge sporty models from Lexus, BMW, Alfa Romeo and Mercedes-Benz.

Acura TLX competes with near-luxury models from Germany, including the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and Audi A3.

The standard engine is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder making 206 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque, enough to give the nimble TLX a balanced character. The bigger engine is a 3.5-liter V6 making 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque, but because it adds 500 pounds to the weight of the TLX, it doesn’t feel that much quicker than the four-cylinder. In addition, its 9-speed automatic transmission isn’t as smooth as the 8-speed dual-clutch automated transmission in the four-cylinder model.

However if you want all-wheel-drive, specifically Acura’s sophisticated Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD), it only comes with the V6.

The TLX earns five stars in crash tests by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In one of the tests performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, for small-overlap frontal impact, the TLX ranked only Marginal. Other IIHS tests yielded Good scores (the highest rating). When fitted with optional safety features, the TLX was rated Superior for frontal-crash prevention.

Fuel-efficiency is good on the highway, with a big drop in the city. The four-cylinder TLX is EPA-rated at 24/35 mpg City/Highway, or 28 mpg Combined. The front-drive V6 model is EPA-rated at 21/34 mpg City/Highway, or 25 mpg Combined. SH-AWD sinks the Highway figure to 31 mpg.

Lineup

The 2018 Acura TLX 2.4L ($33,000) includes 2.4-liter engine, rearview camera, moonroof, power seats, keyless start, Bluetooth, seven-speaker audio with satellite radio, and hill start assist. The Technology Package ($3700) adds navigation, AcuraLink infotainment, perforated leather upholstery, and a premium 10-speaker Acura/ELS Studio audio system. (All prices are MSRP and do not include $995 destination charge.)

TLX 3.5L ($36,200) gets the V6 engine and 18-inch wheels and is available with the Technology Package ($39,900) or Advance Package ($43,750) that adds adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, front/rear parking sensors, and heated/ventilated front seats.

Other optional safety features include forward collision warning, lane-keeping assist, and blind-spot monitoring.

TLX 3.5L SH-AWD ($38,200) includes all-wheel-drive and V6, and is available with the Technology and Advance packages ($45,750).

TLX A-Spec comes with either front-wheel drive ($42,800) or SH-AWD ($44,800).

Walkaround

Curiously, except for a coupe-like arched silhouette, and the grille they’ve given up on, the TLX has not gone with the flow of Acura’s more edgy designs. There’s little that’s edgy about it. It doesn’t appear to be trying to keep up with sharper designs from Lexus, Infiniti, Audi and Alfa Romeo. Even its lowly cousin the Honda Accord is more eye-catching in some models.

However the changes for the 2018 TLX make it prettier, with a cleaner more muscular look. Its grille is no longer polarizing. By replacing the solid shield with black mesh, and cleaning up the air intakes at the bottom of the front fascia, and raising and shaping the three character lines in the hood, it now looks classy. Even a bit longer, because the eye is no longer drawn to the grille. It’s still not distinctive, however, just clean.

Flared rear fenders and a lip spoiler add spirit. The taillamps have been tweaked a bit. While the V6 model gets boring rectangular exhaust outlets, the A-Spec gets a hot pair of four-inch barrels that are integrated into the bumper.

Interior

The TLX is on the large side of the compact category in overall dimensions, while being the small side of midsize in passenger space. At 106.5 cubic feet, total passenger space doesn’t match the 3 Series or C-Class. Indeed, the TLX is much better for four than five.

The cabin layout is efficient, with simple but premium materials, but it trails its rivals. The seats are comfortable enough. The instrument panel is attractive and easy to read. Twin display screens are mounted on the center stack. Interior storage is good, including door bins, a big central console, and sizable glovebox.

On the passenger side, the view sinks to bleak. That rider sees an awkward expanse of empty black dashboard. The plainness reaches to the rear seats, where legroom is a bit less than European.

The blissfully quiet ride redeems a lot. Wind and road sounds barely exist. It’s serene in the cabin.

Driving Impressions

With either engine, the TLX rides and handles better than average, but the difference between the two is dramatic, so one of them is way better than average, guess which one.

We found the four-cylinder with front-wheel drive to have the crispest cornering, partly because it weighs about 500 pounds less than the V6 model. Excellent suspension tuning complements taut, precise steering. Bumpy roads do not upset it. Nimble low-speed behavior and on-highway stability are helped by Acura’s Precision All-Wheel Steer system, which is standard with the 2.4-liter model.

Not only that, the engine is eager to rev, and the 8-speed dual-clutch automated transmission is brilliant. A torque converter eliminates jerky shifts, so it feels like a conventional automatic. It might be the first twin-clutch with a torque converter.

There is no denying the thrust of the V6 is stronger. Its 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque is impressive, and is well contained by the optional Super-Handling All-Wheel-Drive system. The torque peaks at 4500 rpm, so the acceleration will remain strong at higher rpm.

But the 9-speed automatic brings the engine down. We criticized Acura’s implementation of the German ZF transmission in our 2017 review, and Acura says it was improved for 2018, and indeed it’s more willing to engage from a stop. But it’s dynamically inferior to the 8-speed automatic in the BMW 340i, the 7-speed dual-clutch in the Audi A4, and even the 8-speed DCT (dual clutch) in the 4-cylinder Acura TSX. The upshifts are too slow even with the driving mode at its most aggressive, and the downshifts too are in no hurry. Besides, nine gears seem like too many when manually shifting.

The TLX A-Spec uses only the V6. It gets stiffer springs and dampers, and a larger rear anti-roll bar, but you can’t feel that much of a difference, compared to the base TLX with its inline four. We can’t help but imagine an A-Spec with the smaller and lighter four-cylinder, but it doesn’t exist.

Active Sound Control system pumps in a throaty intake song.

Summary

The Acura TLX comes at a lower price point than the competition, with a high level of standard equipment. With styling revisions for 2018, its looks befits its capabilities. The 2.4-liter engine is the way to go, with adequate acceleration, nimble handling, a quiet ride, and good fuel economy. The SH-AWD all-wheel drive is exceptional. The available packages cost a lot, and are easy to live without.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
