2018 Acura TLX

Sunday, October 9th 2016. | Acura

If you expect to see any changes in the Acura TLX, we recommend you to not anticipate the 2018 model. The company wouldn’t give any updates in that generation, but you might wait the new 2018 Acura TLX that will come out with slightly revised exterior styling, more features and higher engine output. For this updated model, the renderings are available on internet with the same styling cues as the new MDX that was released for New York Auto Show, recently. It is safe to say that the TLX will be more powerful and luxurious and it will be added under the Acura brand.

2018 Acura TLX Front Angle


If you don’t mind to wait its arrival, 2018 Acura TLX will come with a completely new front end that sounds to be the corporate style with the MDX crossover. It is completed with pentagon shaped grille. The fender will be reshaped features full LED headlights and large air intake. Seeing the profile, we don’t see any change. What we can see is the rear fender with the slight restyling and we now think that it would be good if the company also has big concern on the rear lights to create a more different look from before.

2018 Acura TLX for the cabin side, we think that there will be no significant changes to offer. If you want drastic change, you will be disappointed. The company will only work for some parts to give higher functionality. For example, the will update the media system or redesign the dashboard a bit. Rumors mentioned that the company wants to make the car has more aggressive look just like Type-S version along with updated engine as well as suspension.


At the time of writing this report, there is no details have been confirmed. Some automotive blogs only mentioned that there will be a redesign without getting much change. If so, we strongly suggest the company to support the new 2018 Acura TLX with a little modification for its engine. The base model should be added with four-cylinder and 2.4 liter that is capable to produce about 206 BHP and there is also 3.5 liter of V6 engine with the capability to offer 290 BHP.

Release Date and Price

Many of us are expecting that the release date can be scheduled in the mid-summer of 2017 so it will hit the market soon as the new 2018 Acura TLX in the end of that year. Considering that the changes are pretty small, we bet that the cost will not increase quite much. To get the standard four-cylinder model, we predict the price is about $33,000.
