One week ago, Acura announced at the New York International Auto Show that the 2019 TLX would add the A-Spec Trim level to its 2.4L model. Yesterday, they announced the full pricing for the range of 2019 Acura TLXs and stated that the 2.4L TLX A-Spec would begin arriving at dealerships today.

The 2.4L (206hp, 8DCT) TLX A-Spec is priced at $40,365 and is EPA rated at 23 / 33 / 27 MPG (City/HWY/Combined).

In other 2019 TLX news, Acura has dropped Black Copper Pearl from the exterior color palette, while Bellanova White Pearl has been replaced with Platinum White Pearl. Tech and Advance V6 trim levels receive a new 19" wheel design.

The press release follows.

Engineered to Engage: The 2019 Acura TLX Hits Showrooms

Apr 3, 2018 - TORRANCE, Calif.

  • New 2.4-liter A-Spec sport appearance variant added to lineup
  • New Platinum White Pearl added to color palette
  • New 19" wheel for V6-powered Technology & Advance models

Fresh off last year's comprehensive redesign, the 2019 Acura TLX will begin landing in Acura dealerships nationwide starting April 4. Given the resounding sales success of the V6-powered TLX A-Spec, Acura has expanded its increasingly popular sport appearance package to include 2.4-liter TLX models. What's more, with TLX sales currently up 15 percent year-over-year, the new 2.4-liter A-Spec is poised to continue to grow TLX's market share in the midsize sedan category.

What is A-Spec?

A-Spec amps-up the sporty character of TLX by way of exclusive design elements inside and out, starting with a matte-black diamond pentagon grille surrounded by a dark chrome border, an aggressive lower front fascia with a broad center air opening flanked by round LED fog lights, and a dark appearance for the signature Jewel Eye LED headlights. A-Spec exclusive 19-inch alloy wheels finished in Shark Gray paint are wrapped with 245-series tires. A-Spec exterior upgrades continue at the rear with a gloss-black decklid spoiler, "smoked" LED taillights, and an exclusive fascia featuring a lower diffuser accented by 4-inch round dual exhaust finishers. A matte-black side window surround and A-Spec badging on the front fenders and rear decklid completes the look.

Inside, the TLX A-Spec features more aggressively bolstered front seats with high-contrast stitching and piping, red LED ambient light piping, red driver's meter highlights, a black headliner and pillar treatment, brushed aluminum-look instrument panel garnish, and an exclusive, thick-rimmed steering wheel with A-Spec badging.

A-Spec V6 models equipped with SH-AWD also get a quicker steering ratio for increased response along with a stiffer spring rate and rear stabilizer bar for improved body control.

The TLX A-Spec is available in five exterior colors, including a trim-exclusive Still Night Blue Pearl, and one of two unique interior color schemes, Black with Alcantara™ seat and door inserts or Full Red which features a bold red leather throughout. A-Spec models incorporate the same feature set as TLX models fitted with the Technology Package with the addition of ventilated front seats, a wireless charging pad, and the aforementioned ambient interior lighting.

2019 TLX Highlights

Key standard equipment consists of LED headlights, a 10-way power driver's seat, heated front seats, Smart Entry with push button start, and a dual-screen user interface (ODMD 2.0) featuring user-friendly menus, speedy response times, as well as Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration. Other available options include a 360-degree Surround View Camera system, a heated steering wheel, next-generation AcuraLink® connected services, and a 10-speaker Acura/ELS Studio® Premium Audio System.

Two advanced powertrains are on offer – a 206-horsepower 2.4-liter i-VTEC® engine mated to quick-shifting 8-speed dual clutch transmission, and a 290-horsepower 3.5-liter i-VTEC® V6 paired with a 9-speed automatic.

2.4-liter TLX models come equipped with Acura Precision All-Wheel Steer™ (P-AWS™), featuring independent left- and right-rear-wheel toe angle control to enhance overall handling precision, low-speed maneuverability and high-speed stability.

V6 models are offered in both two- and all-wheel drive configurations. Front-drive models feature P-AWS with independent left- and right-rear-wheel toe angle control that sharpens low- and high-speed maneuverability. All-wheel-drive models feature Acura's renowned Super-Handling All Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®).

Every 2019 TLX includes the AcuraWatch™ suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies, leading all luxury midsize sedans in the application of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies. AcuraWatch™ comprises Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow, Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS), and Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) with Lane Departure Warning (LDW).

What's new for 2019?

  • A-Spec expanded to 2.4-liter models
  • New 19" wheel for V6-powered Technology & Advance models
  • Black Copper Pearl exterior color discontinued
  • New Platinum White Pearl exterior color replaces Bellanova White Peal
