The redesigned 2018 Acura TLX comes with a long list of standard features, and bolder, sportier styling. Find it at Speedcraft Acura in West Warwick.
The 2018 Acura TLX has a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from NHTSA, 5-Star ratings in every Frontal Crash and Rollover Test. Its ACE body structure is four to five times stronger than traditional-grade automotive steel. It’s also the only vehicle in its class to offer a full suite of safety and technology features.
AcuraWatch is designed to increase awareness and support the driver, working to help prevent, avoid and mitigate impacts. AcuraWatch monitors surroundings and warns of threats, keeps you in the center of the lane, and helps brake to keep the appropriate space between cars. Available safety features include blind spot monitoring and a 360-degree-view camera.
Also, LED brake lights illuminate 200 milliseconds faster than conventional bulbs, giving drivers more time to react. LED headlights are standard on every Acura and provide a wide beam of light that is designed to mimic natural sunlight. The result is clarity, more vivid colors, and less tired driving.
All this safety comes at a good value, but don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what U.S. News and World Report says, “If you’re looking for a luxury car but don’t want to break the bank, the 2018 Acura TLX is a good choice. Starting at $33,000, it has one of the lowest price tags in the class, yet it still has most of the amenities you’d expect of a luxury midsize car.”
