For 2020, four new colors have been added to the TLX's color palate: Performance Red Pearl, Majestic Black Pearl, Canyon Bronze Metallic and A-Spec-limited Apex Blue Pearl. Also new is a limited edition, hand-crafted PMC Edition assembled by the same master technicians who build the NSX supercar. The TLX PMC has unique interior and exterior styling and comes painted in a brilliant Valencia Red Pearl paint. See the 2020 Acura TLX models for sale near you
If you're looking for luxury, power, safety and technology, we suggest moving to the top-of-the-line TLX 3.5 SH-AWD with the Advance package or the performance-oriented TLX 3.5 A-Spec. Other than the Acura name, the base TLX just doesn't provide enough to convince us you couldn't spend the same money or less on a Hyundai Sonata, Toyota Camry, Honda Accord or Kia Optima and get more car for your money.

2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia - The Alfa Romeo Giulia offers more power, better handling and styling that just won't quit. However, when it comes to long-term reliability and resale value, the jury is still out on this Italian stallion.
2020 Infiniti Q50 - The 2020 Q50's styling and interior layout are much more expressive than the TLX's, and its myriad of engine offerings includes three turbocharged options and one hybrid. The Q50's optional Sport packages make it much more fun to drive as well.
2020 Lexus IS - The new Lexus IS can match the TLX for quality, dependability and resale value, and it offers a more powerful base engine too. Although the TLX has a stronger V6 than the base IS 300, the IS 350 delivers an additional 16 hp.
Used Lexus GS - A 2014-2018 Lexus GS would give you more interior space, power and luxury, and it's a better-known commodity in the luxury-car world. There's also a hybrid model.
