The brand new 2018 Acura TLX
Not only does the 2018 Acura TLX performance sedan boast a more aggressive, sporty and alluring look, it includes new premium features and technology enhancements that place it among the most technologically advanced and well-equipped midsize luxury cars in its segment.
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.
Here is the brief overview of what you can expect from this 2018 Acura TLX lease deal with our auto lease brokers: 4 doors, 5 passengers, all-wheel drive; 21/31 mpg city/hwy (est) 3.5-liter V-6 engine; 290 hp, 267 lb-ft; 9-speed automatic transmission
Acura likes to tout tech as the selling point of its models, so the TLX offers front-wheel drive with rear-wheel steering or torque-vectoring all-wheel drive to enhance its agility. The base powertrain is a 206-hp 2.4-liter four with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic or a 290-hp 3.5-liter V-6 with a nine-speed auto. The TLX has LED headlamps and electronic driving assistance such as road-departure mitigation and collision-mitigation braking.
This sedan gets a lot right, especially when you equip it with the V6 engine and all-wheel drive.
- Quiet cabin at highway speeds
- Rear seat legroom is generous
- Ample trunk space and in-cabin storage for small items
- Typically priced less than German competitors.
