What Is the 2019 Acura TLX?

The Acura TLX is a premium mid-size sedan that seats five. It’s powered by a standard 206-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that pairs with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission or an optional 290-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 that works with a nine-speed automatic. Front-wheel drive comes standard with all-wheel drive optional on V-6 models. Competitors include the Toyota Avalon and Buick LaCrosse.

What's New on the 2019 Acura TLX?

The sporty A-Spec package is now available for four-cylinder TLXs in addition to V-6 models.

What Features in the 2019 Acura TLX Are Most Important?

Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity and the AcuraWatch suite of advanced safety tech provide many bells and whistles in the base model. Premium options include a 360-degree camera system and a heated steering wheel.

Should I Buy the 2019 Acura TLX?

The TLX is well-equipped in base form, offering good value for the money, but the car's interior falls short of other luxury offerings and the multimedia system can be confusing.

Smoothest drive I ever had!!!

by Dani Jacks from Cleveland, OH on December 17, 2018

This base model is the top model in most brands. Acura has truly out done themselves. I’ve never considered buying a car but after my lease is up it’s definitely at the tip of my consideration. Plus ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
