The 2018 Acura TLX performance luxury sedan launches with a more sporty and alluring look reflecting the brand's new design direction, along with an all-new TLX A-Spec variant for V6-powered models, and new premium features.

The 2018 TLX also is the first Acura to feature a redesigned dual-screen user interface with more intuitive menus and command structures complemented by a new 7-inch capacitive touchscreen (previously resistive type) with a 30-percent faster response time and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.

The 2018 TLX boasts a new style, highlighted by the Acura diamond pentagon grille and amplified by its more sharply sculpted hood and front fenders, paired with strong dynamic characteristics including more aggressive and sporty front and rear fascia, side sills, and available dual rear exhaust finishers and rear diffuser.

The 2018 Acura TLX continues to be offered with two advanced powertrains: a 2.4-liter, 206-horsepower four-cylinder mated to an 8-speed Dual Clutch Transmission with torque converter; and a 3.5-liter, 290-horsepower V6 mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission, which for 2018 has been retuned for a more refined feel.

Two-wheel drive variants of the 2018 TLX, with either the 2.4-liter or 3.5-liter engines, come equipped with Acura Precision All-Wheel Steer, with independent left and right rear-wheel toe angle control to enhance overall handling precision, low-speed maneuverability and high-speed stability.

Acura Super-Handling All Wheel Drive, the most sophisticated torque-vectoring AWD system in the industry, is available for the first time on all V6-powered variants. SH-AWD elevates the TLX driving experience to a new level, enhancing cornering grip, power delivery and all-weather handling and control through dynamic distribution of engine torque to all four wheels and independent control of torque delivery to the left and right rear wheels.
