2019 Acura TLX Review
If you need a strong and stylish midsize sedan to help you power through your Cherry Hill, Maple Shade, and Moorestown area commutes, you’ll probably find a lot to like about the 2019 Acura TLX. When the team at Elite Acura reviewed this sedan, we found that it’s not only high-powered, it’s also tech-forward.
Check out our 2019 Acura TLX review to learn about some of our favorite features.
2019 Acura TLX Engine Specs Review
The 2019 Acura TLX can come equipped with one of two engines:
- 2.4L I-4: 206 horsepower, 182 lb-ft of torque
- 3.5L V6: 290 horsepower, 267 lb-ft of torque
The 2.4L engine is paired with an 8-speed dual clutch transmission. This transmission gives you the best of both worlds by offering the smooth-shifting of an automatic, while still letting you take control and shift on-demand with Sequential SportShift paddle shifters.
The 3.5L engine comes with a 9-speed automatic transmission that also includes Sequential SportShift paddle shifters. The additional upper gear works to improve your fuel economy during highway cruising by letting your engine take a break when it doesn’t need to be working so hard.
Handling and Driving Dynamics
Whether you’re facing down a tight corner or a snowy winter road, you’ll find that the impressive handling capabilities of the 2019 Acura TLX help you take on these challenges with relative ease.
This sedan comes equipped with a standard front-wheel drivetrain (FWD) that delivers clean cornering thanks to the Precision All-Wheel Steer™ (P-AWS®) system. P-AWS® automatically and independently adjusts rear wheel angles to increase agility and stability.
If you’re more focused on commuting to work on snowy mornings, you might prefer the available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) system that automatically redistributes torque among all four wheels to increase traction and improve agility.
To optimize performance even more, you can also choose among four different drive modes with the Integrated Dynamics System. These modes are:
- Economy: maximum fuel efficiency
- Normal: balanced drivability
- Sport: improved responsiveness
- Sport+: aggressive shifting
Acura TLX Technology
In addition to being powerful and dynamic, the 2019 TLX is also rather tech-savvy. It comes equipped with standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ capabilities that allow you to completely integrate your smartphone with your car.
The interior of the TLX is just as impressive with the On Demand Multi-Use Display™ 2.0 system that you can use for music streaming, answering incoming phone calls, and navigation on the 8-inch touchscreen display, while keeping your phone energized with the available wireless charger.
Behind the scenes, your Acura TLX will be keeping an extra set of eyes on the road with the standard AcuraWatch™ suite of safety features. This includes safety technology like:
- Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow
- Blind Spot Information System
- Lane Keeping Assist System
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™
All these features work together to help mitigate potential collisions on the road. For example, the Lane Keeping Assist System monitors roadway markings. If you accidentally drift from your intended lane of travel, this system will issue an alert and gently steer you back into your lane.
