2019 Acura TLX - Review & Road Test

Acura's TLX is an entry-level luxury sedan that has some stiff competition. Included in its list of frenemies are those from Europe, specifically the German part. Quietly, however, the TLX is a strong seller in spite of the pretzel-and-wurst-eating set. Find out with Kelley Blue Book's Micah Muzio how the TLX manages to keep its head up in such luxurious shark infested waters.

    How about a TOUCH SCREEN navigation with instant City/State, longitude, latitude and elevation? How about a gear shift LEVER intead of push buttons? How about a radio station tuning KNOB and a SUPER SIMPLE center console? How about an ATTRACTIVE front end with a SMALL Acura logo on the front grill and a SMOOTH hood? How about SOFT TOUCH dash/door panels? It's always feels good to return the 2019 TLX loaner and get my 2005 TL Auto w/NAV back.

    I like Micah in this review. He makes it fun and did an excellent job. I do like the red leather, but not so keen about the two screens. Ouch! to the price of the fully loaded AWD version.

    Why do they keep piling more features on cars that distract you from driving. Give me a simple car with a radio on/off and preset for stations buttons. Keep your key-less entry system, the push-button transmission, the info-tainment that is so insane to use. I don't want to have to pull over on the side of the road and look in the owners manual to change the radio or air conditioning controls.

    The worst thing companies have done is create different drive modes. I like a taunt steering wheel all the time.. And good throttle all the time.. and great handling all the time...but I dont like a transmission that holds the gear. If they want to create modes, then it would be better to let us select the exact thing we want the car to do. Rather than create modes that have a set of features.. What if I want 1 without the other..?? crazy. And the price is too high. 46k for a v6. haha

    the acura drive/r/n selector is supposed to be used with the index finger on reverse to pull extend index for park, extend index a little for neutral. thumb for drive and thumb extension for drive mode selector (sport + sport etc. ) that is the most intuititive way to do it without looking down at the selector

    I love the two screens. If you own the car, you have taken the time to know which screen is which. Most reviewers seem to think if you can figure it out in 2 seconds there is a problem. Most executives work with two, three, or four screens on their desk. Love my 4 cylinder TLX and I do have a 6 cylinder TL. TLX is more fun to drive.

  60. Joseph Xavier

    Nathaniel Cash Jr. Yup. I don’t understand how anyone would be unhappy with 2 screens instead of one. I also work with 2 monitors at work, I’d feel crippled with only one.

    There's literally no reason to get this over an Accord Touring especially since Acura isn't luxury anyways, just premium. The Accord looks better too, this refresh is just trying way too hard
