After the last-year facelift, it is pretty much clear that 2019 Acura TLX will not feature bigger changes. This model originally came not so long ago. It was launched in 2014, as a successor of TL model. After three years of production, this mid-size luxury sedan received first update. Moreover, it was a big facelift that we saw last year. For this occasion the company introduced various new styling details, but exterior look wasn’t the only part of the car that came with novelties.
The new model also came with changes inside, mostly in terms of new technologies and standard features. On the other side, things under the hood remained the same. Although there is no official confirmation, some reports suggest that the 2019 TLX could get a new engine. However, we will have to wait for some more time to be clear about this thing.
2019 Acura TLX redesign
When it comes to base design characteristics, the 2019 Acura TLX will continue in the same way. This model is based on the previous generation of the iconic Honda Accord and it should continue for some time more. It received a facelift last year and now features even better look. For this occasion, the company changed many things. At the front, there are things like new front fascia, fenders and grille. Also, there is a new wheels design. Other areas of the car suffered some minor tweaks. If we consider all these changes, it is pretty much clear that there’s no space for some bigger changes at the moment.
The same thing is on the inside. We saw few novelties last year, but most of them we in terms of new technology features, like new infotainment system and smartphone integration. For this year, we could see few additional standard features.
2019 Acura TLX equipment
The 2019 Acura TLX is definitely one of better equipped models in the class, considering what you get for the price. This sedan comes in a single trim, but with various optional packages. All models include standard features like LED headlights, 17-inch wheels, keyless entry and ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, simulated leather upholstery and power-adjustable front seats. Also, all models come with the company’s famous AcuraWatch package of safety features. It includes systems like lane departure warning and intervention, forward collision warning and mitigation with automatic braking, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control etc.
When it comes to optional packages, some of them are Technology, Advance and A-Spec.

2019 Acura TLX engines
Well, this is the aspect where we can see some novelties for the next year. According to some reports, the 2019 Acura TLX could get a new 2.0-liter engine from the new-generation Accord. This turbo inline-four is pretty efficient and delivers around 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. It is quite comparable with the current V6, which is good for about 290 horses and 267 pound-feet of torque. However, in terms of fuel economy, you shouldn’t even try to compare. Also, we can presume that the new engine will get some additional power for this occasion, maybe even full 306 horses, which is a max output of the Civic Type R.
Besides this large V6 and possible new 2.0-liter engine, the 2019 Acura TLX should also continue with the reliable 2.4-liter unit. This is actually the base engine for this sedan. It delivers around 206 horses.
2019 Acura TLX release date and price
We expect to see 2019 Acura TLX somewhere in late 2018. If we presume that there will not be significant changes, it is pretty clear that the price will remain the same as well. Base models will go around 33.000 dollars, while the best-equipped version could cost over 46.000 dollars.
