2018 Acura TLX: The New Athletic Buff


There haven’t been a lot of updates or details about the upcoming 2018 Acura TLX but be sure that the ride will be as good as the concept. After the ride has been using camo during their testing stages, predictions have started coming – mostly about the design and how the ride will look like. Even under the camo, it is obvious that Honda is using their concept from the prototype with the diamond pentagon grille. And how should the ride look like after they aren’t under the camo anymore?


The design of diamond pentagon grille isn’t exactly new since the company has shown it on Acura Precision Concept. And then they showed it again for the Acura 2017 MDX. And it seems that they won’t be stopping now, continuing the design to the TLX line for 2018. Thanks to the grille, the overall design will be more athletic – contributing to the good looks. And with another addition, like the angular and narrow headlights, the overall design of the new TLX won’t be disappointing.


And as predicted before, the midisize sedan will be coming with a new face and a redesigned grille. Not to mention that there is the A-spec package with performance oriented outcome that is expected to improve the overall handle and control of the ride. For the overall construction and design of the new 2018 Acura TLX, there will be bigger tires and wheels, more aggressive styling for the body kit, and also more masculine feel with the black accent. It is possible that there will be the hybrid setup for this line although it remains unsure.

The changes are meant to refresh the overall look and styling, so Acura can look somewhat new and refreshing. The upgrade on the 2018 Acura TLX appearance will be accompanied by some tweaks but not so much for the power – or what seems to be likely. After all, it is ‘just’ a mid cycle upgrade so you shouldn’t expect too much.


It is possible that the new Acura will be running on the four cylinder inline 2.4 liter engine (producing 206 hp of power) that is paired with automatic dual clutch eight speed transmission. There will be an optional V6 3.5 liter engine that is matched with the front wheel driving system and auto nine speed transmission.

The car should be available soon as predicted by some people. For the price, it is possible that the base of 2018 Acura TLX will start from around $33,000 with the higher end reaching $46,000.
