2024 Acura TLX Refresh: Understated Beauty

Fewer Trims, Simplified Lineup

The newly updated 2024 Acura TLX has just hit the roads, representing its first revamp since its generation 2 release in 2021. Underscoring the reality of the dwindling sedan market, Acura has decreased its trim range while introducing slight tweaks to the style, tech inside the vehicle, and components.

Now included as standard equipment, the Technology Package provides a built-in navigation system, ELS Studio audio system of premium quality, blind spot warning, 19-inch rims, LED lighting inside the cabin and Milano leather upholstery. The engine continues to be the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, with a power of 272 horsepower and torque of 280 lb-ft, which is operated via a 10-speed automatic gearbox.

Only the entry-level Technology Package of the car comes with front-wheel drive capability. If individuals seek a Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive (SH-AWD) in combination with the low level engine, then a move up to the A-Spec is an essential requirement. Acura has yet to reveal its pricing structure; however, with the addition of the usual Technology Package coming built-in, it’s anticipated that the expense of the TLX will go up.

The leading TLX Type S, which makes up a quarter of TLX sales, carries on with a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that delivers 355 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque. Some slight changes have been made like the optional 20-inch wheel design with summer tires as well as upgraded throttle response in the Sport+ driving mode. Plus, a head-up display and surround view camera are now fixtures. Furthermore, the limited edition hand-built TLX Type S PMC Edition will also come back for 2024.

The whole front of the trim levels have been reimagined with a frameless diamond cut pentagon grille and net-like design. On entering, one is presented with a widened 12.3-inch Dual Content Display, an included12.3-inch Precision Cockpit digital cluster, as well as wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, a phone charging pad, and remote ignition start.

Two fresh tints, Urban Gray Pearl (A-Spec and Type S) alongside Liquid Carbon Metallic (Technology Package), have been incorporated.

There have been several updates to achieve a more tranquil interior, such as heavier carpets, front fender insulators, wheel mufflers, and door sound dampeners to decrease the level of outside noises. To reduce wind sound, Acura has additionally installed acoustic glass. Additionally, the ASC noise elimination system has been heightened in efficiency by Acura in order to quiet the cabin more significantly.

Acura has upgraded its AcuraWatch safety package with multiple improvements. Most notable is the extra-wide 90-degree span of vision for the single-lens front camera compared to the former 50-degree range. In addition, there is now a new millimeter-wave radar in the grille with a 120-degree field of view as opposed to the original 50-degree view.

The following year, the 2024 Acura TLX will be constructed in Marysville, Ohio with expected availability for dealership distribution in November 2024. Details on pricing are slated to become accessible nearer to the launch date.
