2018 Acura TLX – First Drive and Review

According to the last few selling seasons, the old models have been sold in a high number of units, meaning that this car has its buyers and fans. However, knowing that sedans are particularly popular the last couple of years, we have reason to believe that the manufacturer will make a new refreshed model, with known features, but still shaped as a sedan, and more space inside of the cabin.


Maybe you remember the rounded almost angular front end of the old Acura and expect the same in 2018 Acura TLX, too. Let’s say that it is not far from the truth. The new Acura will have the same large mesh grille, enlarged manufacturer’s logo, and shaped lines and edges, as on last models. However, there should be new LED lights, shaped in letter V, with a thin chromatic line under the hood with significantly lower front end and wide bumper. The whole car is as low as the front end, making it sportier and robust; with all additions which great sports car have, like the spoiler on truck door and rounded roof.


Besides the roomy cabin, logically enlarged after the whole car is wider now, 2018 Acura TLX should have many additions in term of the cabin equipment and drive. Even the manufacturer has promised that this car will be as much equipped as other cars in the class, if not more. The major goal is to achieve the look of modern sporty cars, with all great additions and devices, but with a touch of luxury and elegance. With the models present on the market nowadays, that will not be that easy.


If something should represent the greatness of the manufacturer’s capabilities that will surely be an engine. Made to be on the top of the class, the new 2018 Acura TLX will have strong 206 horsepower 2.4-liter engine and 3.5-liter V6 with 290 horsepower of strength. The first model, as weaker, should be paired with the eight-speed automatic transmission, while the second one gets a nine-speed automatic clutch. Both send strength to front wheels, with mentioned all-wheel driving options for the strongest engine.
