You’ve got choices. The standard 8-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) with torque converter is paired with a high-revving, 206-hp inline-4. Powerful agility and efficiency converge with a smooth-revving 290-hp 3.5L V6 and 9-Speed Automatic Transmission paired with paddle shifters and Precision All-Wheel Steer.™ Or go next level with advanced torque-vectoring Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) combined with a powerful 3.5L V6 and the smooth-shifting 9-Speed Automatic Transmission.
TLX shares a host of advancements with the iconic NSX including the Integrated Dynamics System, the Dual-Clutch Transmission on 2.4L TLX models, or the exclusive torque-vectoring handling on TLX SH-AWD® models. Both vehicles are also American-made in Marysville, Ohio using domestic and globally sourced parts.
Go from the everyday to the full sport experience – all at the touch of a button. The Integrated Dynamics System (IDS), standard on the TLX, delivers four dynamic drive modes to match the mood you’re in – Econ, Normal, Sport and Sport+.
Conquer the curves and the weather with available torque-vectoring Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®). Using sensors, SH-AWD not only distributes power from front to rear, but also allocates rear power from side-to-side to help the car rotate into a turn.
Intelligent Variable Timing and lift Control (i-VTEC®) increases horsepower by opening intake valves longer and deeper at approximately 4500 rpm and above. This high rpm airflow is further enhanced by Variable Timing Control which incrementally advances the opening of intake valves as rpm rises.
The steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters deliver quick, exact shifts at your fingertips, giving you the best of both worlds by providing the convenience of precise and intuitive automatic shifting as well as shift-for-yourself control.
The Jewel Eye® LED headlights carve out their own space in the TLX profile. Brighter, whiter and longer-lasting than traditional headlights, casting a precisely focused beam far into the future.
The signature diamond pentagon grille, which made its debut on the 2017 Acura MDX, has literally changed the face of the TLX. Talk about making a great first impression!
Giving drivers the ability to see more, our Advance Package comes with the new Surround View Camera system for an unparalleled vantage point while parking. With six unique camera views, it also helps to uncover blind spots and potential obstacles.
The exclusive red leather or black Alcantara® trimmed interiors are inspired by NSX. Other refinements include a black headliner, contrast stitching, red LED ambient lighting, brushed-aluminum metal-look trim, and a deeply bolstered sport seats.
Experience seats crafted from top grain Milano leather for a bold, modern look with durability. Designed for all-day comfort and lateral support, you’re beautifully-positioned to take on the road ahead.

Listen to music, access phone capabilities, and charge your device—now all wirelessly in the 2018 TLX. Experience the effortless convenience of available Qi-compatible wireless charging to keep your compatible smartphones connected and powered for the everyday.
To enhance occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions, the TLX features the next generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure. ACE uses ultra-high strength steel to disperse front impact energy so less force is transferred inside the vehicle.
If the TLX detects a vehicle in an adjacent lane’s alert zone while going over 20 MPH, an indicator appears. If you signal in the direction of that vehicle, the indicator flashes and a warning beep sounds.
Gain awareness of vehicles detected approaching from either side when backing up. Using the Multi-View Rear Camera, sound and arrow indicators will alert you when an approaching vehicle is detected.
Experience a heightened sense of your surroundings with the A-SPEC and Advance packages. Our innovative parking sensors detect when the TLX is getting close to an object or surface with a series of beeps, which sound more rapid as you get closer.
In wet conditions, Vehicle Stability Assist™ can reduce the dangers of over and under steering and loss of traction by applying brakes at each wheel as needed and when necessary, reducing engine power.
The world’s first Precision All-Wheel Steer™ (P-AWS®) system on a production vehicle changes the game for front wheel driving, independently adjusting the rear wheel toe angles for increased agility and stability while cornering, changing lanes or braking.
