Acura TLX Luxury Sports Sedan Speeds Into 2017 Model Year
The 2017 Acura TLX goes on sale at Acura dealerships nationwide with a starting Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $31,9001. Offering the perfect blend of prestige, luxury and performance, the TLX adds three new dynamic exterior colors: San Marino Red, Lunar Silver Metallic and Modern Steel Metallic. In addition, an ebony black interior is now available with the San Marino Red and Fathom Blue Pearl exterior colors.
“The Acura TLX continues to receive accolades for its combination of styling, driving dynamics and luxury refinements,” said Jon Ikeda, vice president and general manager, Acura Division. “TLX embodies the performance and technological sophistication of the Acura brand.”
The spacious five-passenger TLX delivers a unique and compelling blend of sports-sedan athleticism and premium refinement. TLX models are powered by two high-output direct-injected i-VTEC engines; two advanced transmissions, including an 8-speed Dual Clutch Transmission, and the latest iterations of Acura precision-handling technologies—Precision All-Wheel Steer™ (P-AWS™), next-generation Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®), and Agile Handling Assist (AHA).
he TLX’s chassis, powertrains and precision-handling technologies are wrapped in a lithe exterior design with taut body surfaces, dynamically sculpted fender arches, and purposeful character lines. Its sporting character is emphasized by compact sports-sedan proportions.
Acura’s signature Jewel Eye™ LED headlights, standard on all models, lend the TLX an advanced and bright-eyed appearance while producing superior down-the-road illumination. Its LED lighting theme carries through to the LED-accented side mirrors, LED taillights and LED license plate illumination.
The TLX also features a 60/40-split folding rear seatback for greater cargo-carrying flexibility and a trunk design featuring a wide and deep opening, a low lift-over height, a fully flat cargo floor, and two optional underfloor storage compartments.
