For 2018, the Acura TLX received a quite detailed refresh on its front end, making it nearly look like a complete redesign. This upgrade consisted of a brand-new three-dimensional grille, new fenders, and a revised hood. On V6 models, the rear end got a new look too, which helped better identify the two versions. Other than its tweaked look, the 2018 TLX received the current tech features. With all of these updates still fresh, we expect the 2019 TLX to get here the same.
2019 Acura TLX Design
Aesthetically, we anticipate no changes when the 2019 TLX strikes display rooms. On the outside, it’ll likely continue with its new-for-2018 front end and grille influenced by the Acura Precision Concept, which got rid of the much-maligned Acura beak grille. Inside, the present car boasts a new two-screen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and an LCD motorist’s meter.
If the carryover TLX doesn’t satisfy you, you may wish to have a look at the 2019 ILX. There is a chance that Acura could upgrade the ILX for 2019 and base it on the 10th-generation Civic. Then again, there are also rumors that the ILX will be ceased before the 2019 model year, so remain tuned for updates on this.
2019 Acura TLX Engine
Another area we anticipate no changes is to the TLX’s powertrain. We anticipate its base engine to remain the 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 206 horse power. The optional 3.5-liter V6 will likewise likely stay the exact same at 290 hp. An eight-speed dual-clutch transmission handles shifting duties on the four-pot model, while six-cylinder versions utilize a nine-speed automated. All-wheel drive is a choice on V6 models.
2019 Acura TLX Safety
In terms of security, the present TLX just missed getting the IIHS’ second-highest ranking– Top Safety Pick– since of its “Acceptable” ranking in the small-overlap test. The IIHS requires a “Good” score to receive Top Safety Pick. With no changes anticipated structurally, look for the 2019 TLX to coming in with the very same rankings.
2019 Acura TLX Pricing & Release Date
While there is no main release date for the 2019 Acura TLX yet, we do expect seeing it in the summertime of 2018. Offered there are no big changes, we expect its cost variety to remain near the current model’s range of $33,965 to $45,765 (destination costs included). The essential competition for the TLX consists of the INFINITI Q50, Lincoln MKZ, and the Audi A4.
