What's New for the 2019 Acura TLX?

The TLX, which is one of most popular models from Acura, underwent a major redesign in 2018. Therefore, no drastic mechanical or aesthetic changes have been made for 2019. One new highlight, however, is that customers choosing both the four-cylinder and six-cylinder engines can get the attractive and sporty A-Spec package. Previously, the A-Spec package was only available for the six-cylinder sedan. The smaller but still noticeable tweaks for the 2019 TLX include dark trim accents, larger exhaust tips, and a steering wheel with more cushioning. Available in the six-cylinder trim is a more responsive steering ratio, a more rigid stabilizer bar in the rear, and stiffer springs for a sportier driving feel.

The A-spec package, which is available even on the base sedan, gives the TLX a sportier look inside and out. This includes sharp dark chrome accent borders, a sleeker and lower front fascia, rounded LED fog lights, and LED headlights with contrasting dark accents. The A-Spec also equips the TLX with 19-inch alloy wheels and a glossy black rear spoiler. The custom look continues inside the cabin, too. The front seats are more bolstered and have a sportier look. They're finished with attractive contrast stitching.

The instrument panel is finished with brushed aluminum, and the (heated) steering wheel is thickened with extra cushioning. The base model also has a 10-way driver's seat, heated front seats, and a push-start button. Standard infotainment features include touchscreen navigation with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There is also a panoramic backup camera and a premier 10-speaker audio system. The V6 trims are made in two-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. They are also equipped with their own special handling system. All trims get the AcuraWatch safety package. New for 2019 is a Platinum White Pearl exterior paint color.
