The TLX model from Acura was intendedly designed to be a sports sedan, because Acura wanted to introduce a car that can boast of nurturing comfort and driving capability in equal proportion. At the Henderson Acura dealership, we got the opportunity to take a closer look at the 2019-year model of TLX, and here is a brief note on what we have observed.
What’s New for 2019?
With the 2019 edition the TLX enters the competitive market with a few noticeable updates. We first noticed a new 19-inch wheel as a part of the trim package that particular model we were observing. The base model now comes with a four-cylinder engine which has the option to get an A-Spec package to wear that aggressive look. With this package, the base model can have an exterior styling that will be class-exclusive with those 19-inch wheels and the dark chrome accent. The package will also include a set of changes for the interior like heating and cooling options for the front seats and wrap the cabin in red and black accents.
The Outside Look
Whenever the 2019 Acura TLX starts, its bejeweled headlights will instantly grab your attention and its broad five-sided diamond-mesh grille will make your gaze still for some more time. If you have opted for the A-Spec package, then the visual appeal of your base model will be enhanced with the addition of stylized front bumper that look attractive with its lower intakes. As mentioned above, the dark chrome grille and the newly added 19-inch wheels would look glorious, if you choose the new color option named as Platinum White Pearl.
The cabin of the 2019 Acura TLX gives you an instant feeling of quality assurance that not many its class can offer. Needless to say, that Acura has never compromised in quality of the materials and the comfort of the seats. Being the least expensive cars among its segment, Acura TLX carries with it a well-appointed cabin with an elegant layout, allowing enough space for everything, be it for the driver controls, passengers, luggage space, headroom, legroom and some extra space to stretch. The intelligent design makes getting in and out of the 2019 Acura TLX is a breeze for all ages of passengers.
Power Pack and Performance
The 2019 Acura TLX continues with two powertrain options of engine and transmission. One is a V-6 engine with all-wheel drive configuration which can create a 290-hp and the other is the four-cylinder engine maintained as the standard with rear-wheel configuration for improved steering and cornering. At the Henderson Acura dealership, we were informed that the Acura has made the four-cylinder model available with the A-Spec package to make it sportier in its performance, while the V-6 version is given an A-Spec setup for quicker steering and a stiffer suspension. With all this, the 2019 Acura TLX certainly can be counted among the fun to drive vehicles in its class.
The Bottom Line
As an affordable luxury sedan, the 2019 Acura TLX has become a more desirable car for the majority of people who are assured with its active-safety features and infotainment options.
