Meet the 2018 Acura TLX SH-AWD A-SPEC


As names go, the 2018 Acura TLX SH-AWD A-SPEC isn’t especially graceful. Luckily for you, a car’s name doesn’t need to roll off the tongue for that car to perform well on the road. You may think you know the Acura TLX, and might even own an older model. We promise you you’ve never seen it quite like this. Here’s what to expect when it arrives at Hall Acura Newport News.

What is Acura A-SPEC?

Acura A-SPEC is in part an appearance package, but in fact it’s much more than that. Yes, there are some distinctive visual touches, including a red leather interior, a signature dark chrome Diamond Pentagon grille, and charcoal 19-inch rims. There are black chrome and piano black accents throughout, and on the whole it elevates the look of an already handsome car.

What Else is Acura A-SPEC?

What makes Acura A-SPEC special is what goes on beyond its appearance. It starts with the powertrain, which is underpinned by either the V6 P-AWS® or V6 SH-AWD® engines. To that, it adds the Technology Package, which includes a ten-speaker ELS Studio premium surround audio system, navigation with AcuraLink™ Real-Time Traffic, and active safety measures like Blind-Spot Information System and Rear Cross-Traffic Assistance.

Engine power is routed through a nine-speed transmission, but the real star here is the SH-AWD system. Between its torque vectoring and the grippy Michelin Primacy MXM4 tires, you’ve got an impressive level of traction, and the re-tooled handling and improved roll bar make this car an absolute joy no matter what the road surface looks like.

There’s much more to be said for the Acura TLX SH-AWD A-SPEC, but we’d rather show you than tell you. Call us, or visit Hall Acura Newport News at 3353 Western Branch Blvd., to find out when we’ll have this great new Acura model in stock!
