Posted on 12. Apr, 2017 by in Acura Canada


Good afternoon everyone. It’s good to be behind in New York! we wish to conclude all of we for fasten us for a universe entrance of a 2018 Acura TLX. And we wish to acquire everybody examination online, generally a Precision Team behind in California. 

Before we get to today’s news, we wish to share my extensive fad for Acura Motorsports and a NSX GT3 foe program. Five years ago, when we announced a lapse of NSX, we also suggested a goal to take it racing. And in January, we satisfied that dream with a NSX GT3 holding to a lane during a Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona. We’re usually a few months into a module though we’re already enjoying some good success and carrying usually as many fun doing it. Let’s take a look. 

Now, we wish to conclude everybody concerned in a NSX GT3 program. Most importantly a partners, Michael Shank Racing and RealTime Racing for their joining to Acura and their implausible rival spirit.

As we pronounced in a video, opening is a destiny of a code and to be a convincing opening brand, we need a supercar, and we need to take that supercar racing.

A year ago, as we distinguished Acura’s 30th anniversary, we returned to a authentic and strange code promise, Precision Crafted Performance. Today, we’re entirely embracing that promise, and crystalizing a code around a strange concepts that done Acura a success. 

Having been there, we can tell you, other than when we launched a code 31 years ago, there’s never been a time in a story when we’ve had such clarity of purpose. This means we’re vigilant on blazing a possess route in design, in a concentration of opening technologies, in a selling and via a whole patron experience. 

2016 noted a initial year of a lapse to a strange DNA. But all we’re doing from this day brazen reflects a relentless concentration on Precision Crafted Performance.

We usually launched a MDX Sport Hybrid, that joins a RLX and NSX as a third indication to implement a three-motor Sport Hybrid system. Performance is a duty of technology, powertrain and framework though styling and pattern play a vicious purpose in communicating that opening and final year we showcased a destiny styling instruction with a Acura Precision Concept.

The restyled and rested 2017 MDX was a initial indication to request a new pattern instruction including a bold, new solid pentagon grille. Moving forward, augmenting a tension and road-presence of Acura pattern is vicious to a strategy. We did it with MDX.  

Now, we’re branch a courtesy to a sedans, and to a many vicious model, what has prolonged been a volume and picture personality in a sedan lineup, a TLX. 

It’s no tip that a oppulance sedan marketplace is a tough business. And with each reward automaker fighting for a share, I’m not astounded to see a foe resorting to unequivocally assertive tactics. But we have continued to reason a possess opposite a foe with a TLX while progressing a trained sales approach.

So, it’s a severe marketplace though sedans sojourn a vicious post of a brand, and a rested 2018 TLX you’re about to see almost elevates a tension and character. It’s a subsequent step in a mutation as we whet a concentration on Precision Crafted Performance, in all that we do and all that we make. 

Let’s take a demeanour during a 2018 Acura TLX!

Well, here it is. The 2018 Acura TLX!

We started by holding all of a integrity that underpins TLX, a absolute and polished engines, and a industry’s many worldly torque vectoring all-wheel expostulate complement and wrapped it around a some-more aggressive, sporty and alluring figure desirous by a Acura Precision Concept.

As before, we have twin powertrains though graphic styling has combined much-needed subdivision between a four- and six-cylinder models. Available with a V6, a new A-Spec TLX we are divulgence for a initial time today, adds impression and opening inside and out, with romantic styling and competition tuning.

Across all TLX models, all brazen of a A-pillars is code new. A sporty front fascia featuring Acura’s signature solid pentagon grille, corresponding to a new bumper, hood, and fenders gives TLX a bold, new look. 

This V-6 indication adds an aggressive, redesigned behind fascia with unprotected dual-exhaust and customary 18-inch wheels.  

We’ve done pointed changes to stance, proportion, wheels and piece steel to supplement impression and emotion, to some-more strongly promulgate a TLX’s energetic capabilities.

This new A-Spec adds even some-more tension and performance, starting with disdainful bodywork including a singular front fascia with a darker grille and turn haze lights. There’s also a some-more assertive side-sill matched adult with disdainful 19-inch wheels and wider, 245-series tires.

Around back, a A-Spec’s behind fascia sports an assertive diffuser, black spoiler, 4-inch twin exhausts and more.

As for a chassis, that 245-series tire is interconnected with a sport-tuned cessation with some-more assertive damper, bushing and open settings, and some-more manageable steering.

Inside a cabin, we’ve combined new reward calm and facilities creation TLX one of a many technologically modernized and well-equipped cars in a segment, from a base-model on up. 

It is a usually car in a category with active reserve and driver-assistive technologies customary across-the-board, what we call AcuraWatch. And each indication facilities Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. We’ve also redesigned a local user interface, creation it faster to use and easier to navigate, with a complicated design.

The Advance package elevates TLX’s sophistication with all of a disdainful facilities we see here.

For a A-Spec, assertive bodywork is complemented by a sporty interior with Alcantara trim, contrariety stitching, red ambient lighting and an disdainful new competition chair permitted in red with thick sports steering wheel. The A-Spec is permitted on all V6 TLX models positioned usually next a Advance class creation it permitted to younger buyers.

We will announce pricing in early May, though we can tell we that with a abounding calm and extended opening image, TLX will be a constrained cause in this rarely rival segment.

Backed-up by clever products like a new TLX and MDX and, of course, a extraordinary NSX, we have dramatically overhauled Acura’s code voice and selling instruction over a past year. With clear colors, confidant song and an eager voice that celebrates inclusivity, not exclusivity, this new instruction separates Acura from a pack.   

And since we’re in New York, I’m unequivocally vehement to entrance a code new TLX artistic that will launch online tonight.

As we can see, by a products and a marketing, we are positioning Acura as a challenger brand, embracing a destiny with childish vitality, appetite and optimism.

Again, we unequivocally conclude we holding a time to be with us. All of us on a Acura group demeanour brazen to spending time with we tonight.   

Now, after a few discerning photos we wish to entice everybody for a closer demeanour during a new TLX.

Thank you!!
