What's New For 2019

The TLX is mostly unchanged from last year, with the exception that the A-Spec model can now be spec'd with a 4-cylinder model instead of a 6-cylinder engine as previously done. A new set of 19-inch wheels are also available on V6-powered TLXs.

Introduction

Though short on the swagger that identifies some luxury-sedan rivals, the mid-size Acura TLX doesn’t hold back on premium features.

For the 2019 model year, an A-Spec option group is available for 4-cylinder models. New 19-inch wheels are included with V-6 Technology and Advance versions. Otherwise, following a 2018 redesign, little has changed beyond a couple of body-color revisions

Acura’s TLX shuns conventional trim levels. Offered with either 4-cylinder (2.4L) or V-6 (3.5L) power, it comes in base form or can incorporate one of several option packages.

The 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine makes 206 horsepower and 182 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel drive, coupled with four-wheel steering, is the sole configuration with this engine. An 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters is standard for 4-cylinder models.

All-wheel drive is standard with 3.5-liter V-6 models, rated at 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet. With the V-6, a 9-speed automatic takes over, also fitted with paddles.

A-Spec trim is now available for 4-cylinder TLX models, as well as with the V-6. Exclusive design features give the A-Spec edition a sportier appearance. In addition to a blacked-out grille and more assertive bodywork, each A-Spec variant comes with LED fog lights. Pushing the “dark-mode” theme further yet, the 19-inch wheels are painted Shark Gray, LED taillight covers are tinted, and a gloss-black spoiler sits atop the decklid.

Every TLX boasts a comprehensive bundle of standard features and advanced technology, aimed at making driving more intuitive as well as comfortable. Specifically, each TLX is fitted with adaptive cruise control and active lane assist. Automatic emergency braking is complemented by forward collision warnings.

Base models may be fitted with blind-spot monitors with rear cross-traffic alerts. A-Spec versions make that safety feature standard.

Crash-test scores are impressive, too. Federal testers for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the 2019 Acura TLX the top five-star rating overall, as well as for frontal and side impacts. The sedan even earned a five-star score for rollover prevention, which is a calculated figure.

Testing by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety yielded mostly admirable results, led by “Good” ratings for moderate-overlap and side-impact crashes. In the more stringent small-overlap crash-test, the driver’s side was judged “Acceptable.” No rating was supplied for the passenger side.

Lineup

Prices do not include $995 destination charge.

The base 2.4L ($33,000) has front-wheel drive, the 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine, 8-speed automatic, a moonroof, LED headlights, heated power front seats, keyless start, dual-zone automatic climate control with air filtration, synthetic leather seat upholstery, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration, and 17-inch wheels. Adaptive cruise control and parking sensors are included.

The 2.4L w/Technology Package ($36,700) adds blind-spot monitors.

The 2.4L w/A-Spec Package ($39,400) boasts a selection of sporty body modifications with blacked-out details.

The 2.4L FWD w/A-Spec Package and Red Leather ($39,400) substitutes red leather upholstery.

The 3.5L ($36,200 with front-drive, $38,200 with all-wheel drive) substitutes the 3.5-liter V-6 engine.

The 3.5L w/Technology Package ($40,100 with FWD, $42,100 with AWD) adds contents of the Technology group.

The 3.5L w/A-Spec Package ($42,800 with FWD, $44,800 with AWD) adds A-Spec contents, similar to 4-cylinder model.

The 3.5L w/A-Spec Package and Red Leather ($42,800 with FWD, $44,800 with AWD) adds red leather upholstery to the A-Spec option group.

The 3.5L w/Advance Package ($43,950 with FWD, $45,950 with AWD) comes with premium leather-trimmed upholstery, heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats, navigation, and traffic assist.

Walkaround

Muted styling keeps the TLX on the tasteful side of sedans. Modifications made for 2018 included a new grille flanked by bigger, reshaped LED headlights and exhaust tips, which give the TLX a clean and understated look. A-Spec models take the dual-exhaust system a step further, mounting a pair of eye-catching 4-inch exhaust tips below tinted taillights.

Interior

Compared to German-brand rivals, at least, the TLX retains a somewhat snug cabin. On the plus side, it’s attractive and refined. Upper trim levels add contrast stitching and piping to their leather-upholstered seats.

Ambient lighting helps the cabin feel modern, if somewhat tame.

Wide and amply-cushioned, the TLX’s front seats provide sufficient support when roads turn curvy. A-Spec models add heavier bolstering for a sportier, even more supportive feel. Trunk space totals 14.3 cubic feet.

Though effectively quick and responsive to touch-type inputs, Acura’s dual-screen infotainment system takes time to learn. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility is a welcome feature.

Driving Impressions

In its current form, Acura’s TLX earns credit for a strong V-6 engine, sporty A-Spec trim, and the available Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive system. Even though A-Spec modifications affect appearance rather than performance, that option adds to the mid-size sedan’s overall appeal.

Sporty aspirations aside, the TLX carries on as a capable highway cruiser, agreeably traversing the narrow barrier between ride comfort and driving dynamics.

Acceleration with the V-6 is strong from a stop, with abundant thrust at hand for passing on two-lane roads, though the 9-speed automatic sometimes hunts for gears. Performance with the 206-horsepower 4-cylinder engine isn’t far behind, though, and its 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox mates well with it. A-Spec models emit a throatier intake sound than other TLX sedans.

On almost any road surface, the TLX delivers a smooth, refined, comfortably quiet ride. As for handling, sedans with V-6 power benefit from quicker steering and stiffer springs. Optional all-wheel drive keeps the TLX under closer control when cornering.

Fuel economy is decent. The 4-cylinder TLX is EPA-rated at 23/33 mpg City/Highway, or 27 mpg Combined. Front-drive V-6 models are EPA-rated at 20/31/24 mpg. All-wheel drive dips the V-6 estimate to 20/29/23 mpg.

Summary

Benefitting from an impressive list of standard features, the 2019 Acura TLX offers a milder flavor of luxury than its German rivals. The best value may be the 4-cylinder model with Technology Package, with its navigation, upgraded audio, and bountiful driver-assistance technologies.

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. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

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.
