The 2024 Acura TLX is a premium compact sedan that offers a blend of performance, luxury, and technology. The latest model features enhanced styling, new and improved tech, and a quieter cabin, making it a compelling choice for drivers who want a sporty and refined ride.
What’s New for 2024?
The 2024 Acura TLX has received a mild facelift that brings it closer to the stunning Type S Concept that debuted in 2019. The front end has been redesigned with a more aggressive grille, a larger Acura logo and smaller driver assist sensors. The grille also has different mesh patterns for the A-Spec and Type S trims, adding some visual distinction.
The TLX also has two new paint colors: Urban Gray Pearl for the A-Spec and Type S, and Liquid Carbon Metallic for the base Technology package. The A-Spec and Type S also get new wheel designs, round exhaust tips and a revised rear spoiler.
The trim lineup has been simplified, with only three options available: the front-wheel-drive TLX Technology, the all-wheel-drive TLX A-Spec, and the all-wheel-drive TLX Type S. The latter is the performance-oriented model that boasts a 355-hp turbocharged V-6 engine, adaptive dampers, leather upholstery, and an ELS premium audio system.
What's Inside the 2024 Acura TLX?

The 2024 Acura TLX also has a quieter cabin than before, thanks to improved sound insulation and active noise cancellation. The cabin also features ambient lighting, wood trim and metal accents that create a premium atmosphere.
How Does the 2024 Acura TLX Drive?
The 2024 Acura TLX offers a dynamic and engaging driving experience with two engine options and a 10-speed automatic transmission. The base TLX Technology has a 272-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers smooth and responsive acceleration. The TLX A-Spec and Type S have a 355-hp turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine that provides more power and torque for spirited driving.
The TLX also has a sophisticated suspension system that balances ride comfort and handling agility. The TLX Technology has a MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear setup, while the TLX A-Spec and Type S have a double wishbone front and multi-link rear arrangement. The TLX Type S also has adaptive dampers that adjust the suspension's firmness according to the driving mode and road conditions.
The TLX also benefits from Acura’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system, which is optional for the TLX A-Spec and standard for the TLX Type S. The SH-AWD system can distribute torque between the front and rear axles, as well as between the left and right rear wheels, to enhance traction, stability and cornering performance.
