Acura TLX:  Outperformance by Design 

290 Horsepower
8 Speed 

The 2019 Acura TLX V6 sedan offers exhilarating performance and luxury features that put it far ahead of the Infiniti Q50. TLX comes standard with Precision All-Wheel Steer™ and Agile Handling Assist® to aid in cornering, while a 9-speed automatic transmission delivers a linear throttle response with no turbo lag. And even with a bigger engine than Q50, TLX still has better fuel economy ratings2, meaning you really can have it all.

A dramatic A-Spec® variant is also available on the 2019 Acura TLX, ensuring your ride looks just as powerful as what’s under the hood. Performance-driven cues from the Acura NSX elevate the impact of A-Spec: eye-catching features include round exposed dual exhaust outlets, new front lower intakes with round LED fog lights and dark chrome finish trim, and a piano-black rear decklid spoiler.

2019 Acura TLX Lane Keeping Assist System Technology Graphic

Tech-Driven Protection

TLX earns a 5-star NHTSA3 Overall Vehicle Score. AcuraWatch™ safety and driver assistive technologies also come standard on every 2019 Acura TLX, making it one of the most safety-minded sedans.

Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
TLX’s Lane Keeping Assist System6 uses a forward-facing camera to help keep the vehicle centered in a detected lane. Should you drift close to a lane edge it will gently guide the TLX back to the lane center.
