TLX: Outperformance by Design
2018 Acura TLX Sedan
2017 Lexus IS Turbo RWD Sedan
A car should never make you choose between power or handling. The TLX comes standard with Precision All-Wheel Steer™, Agile Handling Assist® to aid in cornering, and an 8-speed Dual Clutch automatic transmission plus torque converter. Meanwhile, the Lexus IS requires a turbocharger to generate power. The larger displacement engine of the TLX does not require turbo power, and still boasts 206 horsepower. And TLX’s fuel economy4 ratings are better than the IS Turbo, meaning you really can have it all.
Available on TLX V6, the dramatic new A-SPEC ensures that TLX looks just as powerful as what’s under its 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 piano-black rear decklid spoiler.
