What Makes the 2020 Acura TLX a Luxury Sedan?

Acura TLX

While some companies think simply putting a logo on a product makes it "luxury," Acura has always infused its cars with what truly makes them high-end. In the latest 2020 Acura TLX, the marks of real class, comfort and sophistication are all over the sedan.

Powerful, Precision Driving

Beneath the hood, the 2020 Acura TLX sets a solid baseline with its standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder and Precision All-Wheel Steer system. The engine delivers a substantial 206 horsepower while getting 33 miles on the highway, and the P-AWS system toes the rear wheels slightly to help with maneuvering tight spaces and improve braking stability.

To really stand out on the pavement, though, step up to the available 3.5-liter V6 and pair it with Acura's advanced Super Handling All-Wheel Drive. The V6's 290 ponies will have you at highway speeds within 5.7 seconds, and it's not just fast on the straightaway. The SH-AWD system actively manages individual wheel power to compensate for traction, acceleration, cornering and driver input. It makes sure you get every ounce of the engine's power, not matter what you're driving over or around.

Sleek, Sophisticated Appearance

Making sure it can compete on the showroom floor as well as the road, the 2020 Acura TLX boasts a sleek and sophisticated look that turns heads wherever the sedan goes. The low profile and dramatic lines make a powerful statement that's appropriate both for a client and a date, and inside the cabin is well planned to maximize comfort and style. Features are naturally integrated into the spacious interior so that they're readily available but never overbearing.

For an especially strong aesthetic, the 2020 Acura TLX A-Spec comes with extra-wide tires, Shark Gray five-spoke wheels, a dark chrome pentagon grille and red LED ambient lighting that really grab attention.

Well-Equipped with Features and Amenities

As for what features are on board, there's a long list of what's standard and available. Some of the more prized items include the following:

  • AcuraWatch Driver Assist (standard)
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto (standard)
  • Ventilated and heated seats (optional)
  • Remote engine start (optional)
  • ELS Studio premium audio (optional)

Priced Unlike a Luxury Sedan

While the 2020 Acura TLX firmly sits within the luxury sedan segment, there is one area where it doesn't quite match its competitors. While many luxury cars cost a tiny fortune, the 2020 TLX is surprisingly affordable.

Try the 2020 Acura TLX

Before you purchase some other luxury car that's supposedly nice and likely costs a lot more, take a 2020 Acura TLX on a test-drive. You might just be floored when you push the pedal to the metal -- and be convinced that this is one of the finest driving machines.

To take one of these sedans on a test drive, simply come to McGrath Acura of Downtown Chicago when the dealership is open Monday through Saturday. You'll find the 1301 N. Elston Avenue, Chicago location is just a short drive from Des Plaines or Oak Park, and there are several of these sedans to try out when you visit.
