Acura will present this year’s new compact sedan called TLX. The new 2019 Acura TLX will not delight anyone with its exterior design, which we can at least call conservative, but definitely not bad. The new Acura TLX could compete with models in the luxury compact sedan class. However, in reality, the situation is such that almost no one would probably have picked before the BMW 3 Series or the Mercedes C-Class. In the opinion of many, this car is just a small step above the sea of standard mid-sized sedans on the market.
2019 Acura TLX – Exterior Expectations and Luxurious Interior Design
The new 2019 Acura TLX is based on the same platform as the Honda Accord. However, despite this, they are quite different from the same because it has been upgraded to a higher level of performance with the addition of high-strength steel. This improved rigidity and safety while the components of aluminum and magnesium reduced the mass of the vehicle.
Design is one category to which 2019 Acura TLX occupies the very top of the class, especially when compared to unattractive predecessors. The biggest newspaper in the refreshed model lies in the new heat sink. It is not only bigger and more detailed. It resembles to a large extent with the crossover MDX – the best-selling model Acura. The company has now decided to change the colors so the presented model brings a black mask, while in the past it was chrome-plated.
The bumpers have also changed somewhat, especially the latter with the V6 engine thanks to a double exhaust. In the interior, the design is still one of the most beautiful in the class and brings distinctive lines. It will not be mixed with any other car on the street. The new model also features redesigned 19-inch wheels, a mall spoiler, an aggressive mask, fog lamps and double exhaust.
In terms of interior, this package of equipment features a choice of two colors of sports leather seats (red and black), leather steering wheel, aluminum details and red light. Mechanical changes are minimal and relate to a fitting sporty-style suspension, but not performance improvements. While the interior almost did not get any improvement. The 2019 Acura TLX is now available with several new equipment packages such as Technology and Advance.
All models come with standard 17-inch wheels (with an optional 18 and 19 inches). Apple Car Play and Android Auto, but these two packages of accessories add LED headlights, cameras at several corners for every part of the car, wireless phone charger, heaters and coolers in both row seats and much more. Safety measures are at the very best in the class. So the new model is expected to get maximum grades in terms of tests in saddles.
2019 Acura TLX – Modifications in the Engine
The six-cylinder engine is the same as under the lid of the RLX sedan and the MDX crossover model. And is also known to the owners of the TLX model. However, the aforementioned engine still has some modifications to be applied in the new TLX. The Atmospheric 3.5-liter direct injection engine now offers 290 hp and 362 Nm of torque. This V6 engine is paired with the ZF 9-speed automatic transmission. The first time we come across this gearbox in the Acura models.
Front-wheel drive models feature what Acura calls “Precision All-Wheel Steer”. While controlling the behavioral abnormalities in the curves of such cars while the four-wheel drive carries the “Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive” tag. In the past, both systems have received very high ratings for sports and entertainment rides. In addition to the fact that the Acura TLX 2019 does not provide the rear-wheel drive. This means that this car can overcome some rivals with a forward drive, such as the Lincoln MKZ and Audi A4, but not the Mercedes C-Class, the BMW 3 Series, the Cadillac ATS and the Lexus IS.
2019 Acura TLX – Expected Date of Arrival and Price
The starting price of $ 32,000 should not change to a significant extent. It means that 2019 Acura TLX is still one of the better purchases in the class. The map that Acura has always played is an excellent quality over a long period of time. You can expect the new 2019 TLX at the end of the current year.
