5 reasons to buy the 2022 Acura TLX

1. Upscale interior finishing

The refined finishing on the 2022 Acura TLX makes an immediate impact on the senses, with harmonious textures and rich upholstery announcing that this is no ordinary midsize sedan. This is a one-trim model but further options can add additional interior colorways. Standard leatherette upholstery in shades of black or beige can make way for Milano premium leather and Ultrasuede finishing in additional shades Graystone, Espresso, Red, and Orchid White. Contrasting this plush upholstery and coordinating headliners are brushed aluminum accents or wooden inlays of European Ash or American White Oak. The overall look is distinctly premium.

2. Your sedan, your style

While the single-trim 2022 TLX has a pleasing list of upscale standard features, models equipped with one of its themed package options are worth seeking out. Highlights of the Technology package include customizable ambient lighting, a navigation system with real-time traffic data, and GPS-linked climate control. The TLX A-Spec package adds sporty touches such as a flat-bottom steering wheel and rear decklid spoiler. The Advance option takes the contents of the Technology package and adds adaptive suspension, a 10.5-inch head-up display, a surround-view camera system, and more.

3. Passenger comfort

Get ready to become the most popular person in your friendship circles, the second-generation TLX (2021 onwards) is stylish, comfortable, and hard to resist. Seating five passengers across two rows, this four-door midsize sedan leans into its coupe-like styling, without sacrificing light (from the sunroof) or interior volume, which is an impressive 106.9 cu-ft. Front-row passengers of the 2022 TLX get power-adjustable, multi-level heated sports seats as standard and easy access to a 10.2-inch infotainment touchscreen and USB charging ports. The back seats are angled for maximum comfort, with 55 inches of shoulder room, 34.9 inches of legroom, and two sets of LATCH child seat fixtures.

4. Driver-focused features

For morning commutes that have the feel-good factor and romantic date nights with your favorite person, the 2022 TLX has got you covered with a robust set of practical driver-assistance features. Standard on every 2022 TLX is adaptive cruise control, a feature that maintains a set distance between your vehicle and the car ahead. You also get standard LED headlights with automatic high-beam function to illuminate the road ahead.

5. The Type S

If the 2022 TLX models sound like your kind of wheels, wait till you hear more about the TLX Type S, the performance-tuned version that will put your head and heart in a spin. Switching out the 2.0L four-cylinder standard engine for a 355-hp turbocharged 3.0L V6 instead, and then pairing it to Acura's super handling all-wheel drive (SH-AWD®), this version is great if you're after exhilarating performance. The finer details are not forgotten either, from its aerodynamic exterior enhancements and Brembo™ performance brakes to the rev-matching transmission downshifts, this could be the sedan your daily commute has been waiting for.
