How Much Does a 2021 Acura TLX Cost?

The 2021 Acura TLX comes in four trims: Standard, Technology Package, A-Spec Package, and Advance Package. Aside from the option of all-wheel drive ($2,000) to any model, major features are tied to each trim level, and with each step up, you get more. The 2021 Acura TLX Standard ($37,500) includes leatherette upholstery, heated and 12-way power-adjustable front seats, keyless entry with push-button start, 18-inch wheels with high-performance all-season tires, dual-zone climate control, moonroof, and LED lights. The 2021 TLX’s standard tech features include a 7-inch digital screen in the instrument cluster and a 10.2-inch central display with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, over-the-air updates, and 10-speaker premium audio system with twin subwoofers. The Acura TLX Technology ($41,500) adds leather seats, 19-in wheels, navigation, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, front and rear parking sensors, adjustable ambient lighting, and a 13-speaker premium ELS audio system. The Acura TLX A-Spec ($44,250) has a sportier appeal with blacked-out exterior accents, darkened taillights, decklid lip spoiler, and flat-bottom steering wheel. It also adds ventilated front seats, an incredible-sounding 17-speaker ELS audio system, wireless phone charging cradle, LED fog lights, rain-sensing windshield wipers and remote engine start. The Acura TLX Advance ($46,300) adds a color heads-up display, adaptive damper suspension, heated steering wheel and rear seats, surround-view camera, front windshield de-icer, 16-way adjustable front seats, and open-pore wood trim.

Is the 2021 Acura TLX a Safe Car?

All 2021 Acura TLX models include the brand’s AcuraWatch, a suite of active safety and driver-assist systems including forward-collision warning and automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, road departure mitigation and adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow. New for 2021 is traffic sign recognition, driver-attention monitor, expanded pedestrian detection, and Traffic Jam Assist. All models except the base Acura TLX also include blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and the topline Advance includes a surround-view camera system. As the TLX is all-new for 2021, it has yet to be rated for crash-testing by NHTSA and the IIHS.

2021 Acura TLX vs the competition

2021 BMW 3 Series — The proverbial benchmark among compact luxury sports sedans for decades, the 3 Series brings crisp handling and a German pedigree. 2021 Lexus IS – Refreshed for 2021, the Lexus IS is a strong contender with bold styling and a reputation for reliability and strong resale value. 2021 Genesis G70 – This newer arrival from Hyundai’s luxury brand brings great driving manners, a ton of standard features at a high value, and offers something others in this segment don’t: a manual transmission. 2021 Audi A4 – Another European rival, the Audi A4 offers a good blend of sportiness and comfort, and Audi’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system. Used Mercedes-Benz C-Class – Few cars have the panache of a Mercedes-Benz, and a C-Class is an excellent introduction to the German brand with its plush interior and technology derived from the flagship S-Class.
