The TLX is not the best sporty luxury mid-size sedan you’ll find in its class, but its budget-friendly starting price, solid value proposition, and eager chassis delivers nothing short of happiness.
Acura’s fierce-looking TLX continues its impressive run in 2023 with just a few updates. The most significant change is the introduction of a new Type S PMC Edition that boast a palette of new paint colors and many sporty design elements inspired by the NSX sports car. This article will help you make apt choices when leasing a 2023 Acura TLX.
Engine And Performance
Traditionally, the Acura TLX is motivated by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that puts out 272 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel drive is standard, and this engine hustles the TLX from zero-to-60mph in 5.9 seconds. However, atop the TLX’s lineup is the performance-enhanced Type S model that houses a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 with 355 horses and 354 lb-ft of torque. The Type S model features a sportier suspension, standard all-wheel drive, enhanced chassis, and other performance-oriented upgrades to ensure an engaging ride and a zero-to-60 time of 4.9 seconds. Both engines hook up with a responsive ten-speed automatic transmission. Generally, the TLX’s ride is entertaining, as its steering is accurate and brakes are responsive, but it’s undeniably sportier on the range-topping Type S trim.
With front-wheel drive, the regular TLX gets an EPA rating of 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. Opting for all-wheel drive reduces these ratings to 21 mpg and 29 mpg, respectively. As expected, the TLX Type S is the least fuel-efficient with its 19 mpg city and 25 highway.
Like every other car in Acura’s lineup, the TLX’s interior boasts sporty styling, superb build quality, and an unending list of cutting-edge tech equipment. The sedan’s center console features console-mounted buttons for gear selection and a rotary drive mode selector. Leatherette seats are standard, while leather-trimmed seats or a combination of leather and suede upholstery are offered on higher trims. Other standard features include heated front seats, a nine-speaker audio system, a 10.2-inch infotainment display, etc. Optional features include multicolor ambient lighting, head-up display, authentic open-pore wood trim, heated and ventilated front seats, etc.
Safety And Driver Assistance
The TLX is well-equipped with Acura’s latest and best safety technologies. Some of the driver assistance and safety features on the latest TLX include;
- Forward collision warning system
- Lane departure warning system
- Traffic sign recognition
- Traffic jam assist
- Collision mitigation braking system
