This Is the 2020 Acura TLX


The TLX has all the icons of luxury and design. Choose a premium paint finish in colors such as Canyon Bronze Metallic, Apex Blue Pearl, or Majestic Black Pearl. Available Jewel Eye®️ LED headlights give you crystal-clear visibility and make a unique first impression.

The interior is open and uncluttered. Ambient lighting provides a soft glow to the cabin and subtly highlights its unique design features. The spacious seats are wrapped in available Milano leather. Heated front seats fight off the winter chill on those early morning commutes. 60/40 rear seats fold down to create additional cargo space when accommodating fewer passengers.


Customize your TLX with the engine that can keep up with your unique lifestyle. The TLX comes standard with a 2.4L TLX engine which produces 206 hp and 182 lb.-ft. of torque — plenty of power to get you where you need to go. For the turbocharged family, the available 3.5L i-VTEC V6 engine can be paired with 9-speed automatic transmission to give you a smooth ride and a power upgrade to 290 hp.

Precision All-Wheel Steer™ (P-AWS®️) independently adjusts the rear wheel toe angles to help you navigate tight corners or turns when parking or steering. The Integrated Dynamics System (IDS) gives you four driving modes to customize the steering, suspension, performance, and efficiency of each ride. With Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™, your TLX can become an all-season vehicle capable of tackling any harsh terrain or weather.

Safety and Technology

The On-Demand Multi-Use Display (ODMD™) touchscreen lets you control your climate, media, radio, and compatible smartphone apps with ease. Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration give you access to your favorite media and phone apps wherever the journey takes you. Keep your smartphone powered up thanks to the available wireless charging dock.

Awarded a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score safety rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the TLX is equipped with a safety suite of Driver-Assistance features to help you navigate rush-hour traffic with confidence. Some of these safety features include:

  • Blind Spot Information System
  • Rear Cross Traffic Monitor
  • Front and Rear Parking Sensors
  • Vehicle Stability Assist
