It’s stylish, it’s striking, it’s powerful under the bonnet and it handles with charm. The 2023 Acura TLX is a true sports car, combining spectacular Acura luxury with the exceptional capabilities of a powerful engine. Its long bonnet, large wheels and streamlined headlights give it an impressive personality, while its interior is the place where fun and comfort meet.
Power the way you want it
The new 2023 Acura TLX has not one powertrain but several to suit every need. The standard TLX is powered by a 272-horsepower turbocharged inline-four; Super AWD is standard. The fully-equipped TLX Type S uses a 355-horsepower twin-turbocharged V6 and comes standard with all-wheel drive. Both engines are mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Comfort is the name of the game
The interior still manages to dazzle. The quality of the finish and materials is beyond reproach. The mix of leather, plastic and wood trim makes everything look and feel good. The seats are comfortable and offer a multitude of driving positions for support and comfort. The TLX also offers an array of interior colours, distinctive leather upholstery, open-pore wood trim and exceptional headroom.
Entertainment on the menu
To enhance the experience, the 2023 Acura TLX features a standard 10.2-inch infotainment system. It features centre console controls and a dial and can also be operated via redundant steering wheel controls. Technology enthusiasts will appreciate the Apple Car Play and Android Auto compatibility, and music lovers will appreciate the high-level ELS audio system.
Handling and precision
The hallmark of a sporty sedan is its driving pleasure. The 2023 Acura TLX doesn’t skimp on this, featuring a central drive mode selector that allows for a judicious choice. Thanks to its precise suspension, the TLX proves to be quick and maneuverable. In sport mode, it becomes more aggressive, with stiffer suspensions that literally hold the car to the road. Add to that Acura’s SH-AWD all-wheel drive system, which enhances winter performance but is also a solid support to the car’s dynamic abilities, and you’ll understand that it’s a long way from a quiet ride.
