    Plenty of power if it was just a couple hundred pounds lighter. I love this and its reliability I just wish it was a little faster with out having to go for the type s

    If they had an all digital display and a heated seat and connectivity in the back seats, that car would take over alot of the 3 seies lovers hearts. So I hope they do go that route in the next up coming models. Still love the new look it looks amazing in person, I'm seeing more and more pop up. As why I'm here, this may be my all year vehicle here in Canada, same color and spec as well. Good video

      @Christian Monzon There's nothing exciting about the Type S. I was one of the ladies to test drive it and was very disappointed. It was clocked at 0-60 at 5 seconds. Considering the price you will pay, there are other cars in the same segment that is much quicker. You might just get a 10th gen honda accord sport 2.0 which clocks about 5.5 seconds from 0-60 and once you tune it, it will probably smoke this type S and this will save you paying $20k. LOL

    Beautiful Car. I wish the info screen was bigger. The screen in my 2013 Audi A6 is small compared to many newer cars but the screen on this Acura looks even smaller. I also wish the engine was a little more powerful. At my age I am looking more for comfort and the tech tools but 0-60 in 5 sec is pretty average to bad. Most midsized luxury sedans to which this will compete can get 0-60 in 4 sec or less. Still worth a test drive though and the looks are stunning!!

      5 second is the Type S not the 2.0 TLX.. Due to the weight, 2.0 TLX is around in upper 6 second mark from 0-60..

    The car would be perfect except there are 3 packages for the TLX (Technology, A-Spec & Advanced) But you cannot get all 3. You can get the technology with one of the other 2. I would’ve gave the car a 9 - because its not the S. Its an 8 mainly because acura messed up the packages. Smh

    Why did they make that EMBLEM? Look's terrible ans along with 4cylinder would have to buy S type seeing that's the only v6 motor. Leased the 2018 Honda accord sport and would not buy it because the motor. Also don't like the tablet set up on the dash just like Honda and i know everyone had issue with dual screen but i enjoyed it just for the reach to touch screen ratio definitely if i was purchasing another tlx it's going to have to be S type HOPEFULLY WITH DIFFERENT EMBLEM THE WINDSHIELD OVER THE ACURA EMBLEM LOOK'S TERRIBLE.
