Overview

What's New in the 2017 Acura TLX?

Other than some new colors, there are no changes for the 2017 Acura TLX

Which TLX is the Best?

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 Advanced package. 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 Ford Fusion, a Chrysler 200 or a Kia Optima and get more car for your money.

Competition

2017 Acura TLX vs the competition

2017 Cadillac ATS -- The ATS is a bit smaller than the TLX, but it offers superior ride and handling. You can choose between a 272-hp turbocharged 4-cylinder or a 335-hp V6 engine, and some rear-wheel-drive models are available with a manual transmission.

2017 Infiniti Q50 -- The Q50's styling and interior layout is much more expressive than the TLX, and its myriad of engine offerings include three turbocharged and one hybrid. The Q50's optional Sport packages make it much more fun to drive.

2017 Lexus IS -- The IS can match the TLX for quality, dependability and resale value, and it offers a more powerful base engine. Although the TLX has a stronger V6 than the base IS 300, the IS 350 delivers an additional 13 hp and more interior amenities.

Used Lexus GS -- A 2011-2015 Lexus GS will 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.
