November 4th, 2017 by


When a new model year arrives on scene, drivers want to know what’s changed, and Rallye Acura wants to help. When looking at the 2018 Acura TLX, you’re probably asking “what’s the difference between this one and the 2017 TLX?” If not, you should; Acura has added quite a bit to their sport sedan, including

  • A-SPEC Sport Styling
  • New Premium Features
  • Technology Enhancements

A-SPEC Package

One of the biggest differences between the two model years is that the 2018 Acura TLX is available with the A-SPEC Package. Models equipped with the V6 engine and the Technology Package can have this NSX-inspired package added on for some looks that match the exciting Acura performance features, including

  • Choice of Black Alcantara or Red Leather Seating with Contrast Stitching
  • 6-level Heated and Ventilated Front Seats
  • Red Accent Lighting and Red and Black Gauges
  • 19-inch Shark Gray Wheels
  • Revised Front Bumper and Air Intakes
  • Black Window Trim
  • Piano Black Rear Spoiler and Rear Diffuser
  • Dark Chrome LED Taillight Details
  • Dual Exhaust Outlets

Enhanced Technology and Premium Features

In addition to the A-SPEC Package, drivers will find

  • All-New Seating
  • Available Wireless Charging Pad
  • Available Surround-View Camera
  • Intuitive New Media Features

We’re excited that the new media system of the TLX has some upgrades we’ve been waiting for, ones we think you’ll appreciate. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto can be found on each 2018 TLX model, the touchscreen is now a capacitive touch model for quicker response (and menus have been streamlined), and the USB port below the control panel has been upgraded from a 1.0-amp to 2.5-amp for faster charging.
