2019 Acura TLX
For 2018, the Acura TLX received a quite detailed refresh on its front end, making it practically look like a complete redesign. This upgrade consisted of a new three-dimensional grille, new fenders, and a revised hood. On V6 models, the rear end got a new appearance too, which helped better differentiate the two versions. Aside from its tweaked appearance, the 2018 TLX got the most recent tech features. With all of these updates still fresh, we expect the 2019 TLX to get here unchanged.
2019 Acura TLX Design
Visually, we anticipate no changes when the 2019 TLX strikes showrooms. On the outside, it’ll likely continue with its new-for-2018 front end and grille motivated by the Acura Precision Concept, which eliminated the much-maligned Acura beak grille. Inside, the existing car boasts a new two-screen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and an LCD driver’s meter.
If the carryover TLX does not please you, you might want to have a look at the 2019 ILX. There is an opportunity that Acura could revamp the ILX for 2019 and base it on the 10th-generation Civic. Then again, there are also reports 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 stay the 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 206 horsepower. The optional 3.5-liter V6 will also likely remain the same at 290 hp. An eight-speed dual-clutch transmission deals with shifting duties on the four-pot model, while six-cylinder versions utilize a nine-speed automatic. All-wheel drive is an alternative on V6 models.
2019 Acura TLX Safety
In regards to safety, the current TLX simply missed out on getting the IIHS’ second-highest ranking– Top Safety Pick– because of its “Acceptable” score in the small-overlap test. The IIHS needs a “Good” rating to qualify for Top Safety Pick. Without any changes expected structurally, try to find the 2019 TLX to roll in with the very same rankings.
2019 Acura TLX Pricing & Release Date
While there is no official release date for the 2019 Acura TLX yet, we do expect seeing it in the summer season of 2018. Given there are no huge changes, we anticipate its cost range to stay close to the present model’s range of $33,965 to $45,765 (location fees included). The crucial competition for the TLX includes the INFINITI Q50, Lincoln MKZ, and the Audi A4.
