Acura TLX 2024 will receive a redesigned front end, a digital instrument panel, and additional equipment

The updated Acura TLX received a new radiator grille, but the appearance of a digital instrument panel and a larger 12.3-inch infotainment system became more noticeable.

Acura has introduced the updated TLX and TLX Type S models. However, you might not notice it as this luxury car brand has paid little attention to it.

This is particularly noticeable on the outside, where the car has a slightly revised radiator grille and not much else. To notice the differences, you'll probably have to look at pictures of the cars side by side. The grille now has a frameless design and a new diamond pattern. Additionally, Acura replaced the previous 18-inch wheels with larger 19-inch wheels with a processed finish.

The lackadaisical attitude continues with the TLX A-Spec model, which has new split-spoke wheels, although they still retain a 19-inch size and the Shark Gray finish. Buyers will also find a revised gloss-black rear spoiler.

Changes to the TLX Type S model are also minor but include a sportier grille promising increased airflow to the turbocharged 3.0-liter V6. Buyers will also find new 20-inch wheels, switching from the Shark Gray finish to Berlina Black.

Moreover, two new body colors have been introduced. Liquid Carbon Metallic is added to the TLX, while Urban Gray Pearl is available on the A-Spec and Type S models.

While the barely noticeable changes in exterior style, the interior is filled with various upgrades. Drivers are greeted with a new 12.3-inch digital instrument panel, accompanied by a larger 12.3-inch infotainment system with a faster processor. Unfortunately, the latter still retains the awkward True Touchpad Interface.

Setting displays aside, the Technology Package now comes as standard, meaning the base TLX model sports Milano leather seats, ambient lighting system, and an ELS Studio audio system. Buyers will also find a new standard wireless smartphone charger.

The TLX Type S model enhances this package, adding a heads-up display and a surround-view camera system with higher resolution. The aforementioned digital instrument panel also has a unique Sport+ setting, emphasizing performance features.

Additional changes are limited, but engineers focused on reducing cabin noise. As part of this effort, the TLX A-Spec model received acoustic front side glass, new front fender liners, and additional insulation in key areas. Additionally, the Active Sound Control system has been 'enhanced to further cancel exterior sounds from polluting the interior ambiance.'

On the safety front, the camera and millimeter-wave radar have wider coverage. Acura states that the 'significantly expanded detection angles improve collision prevention performance by better recognizing object attributes... as well as white lines and road boundaries such as curbs and road signs.'

The 2024 TLX model also receives a new rear seatbelt reminder and an improved blind-spot information system. The latter can now detect objects up to 82 feet (25 meters) away.

Under the hood, there's a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 272 hp (203 kW / 276 PS) and 280 lb-ft (379 Nm) of torque. It's coupled with a familiar ten-speed automatic transmission, but now comes with a standard all-wheel-drive system on the TLX A-Spec model.

The TLX Type S model is equipped with a turbocharged V6 producing 355 hp (265 kW / 359 PS) and 354 lb-ft (479 Nm) of torque. It works with a sport-tuned ten-speed automatic transmission and a standard all-wheel-drive system.
