When it comes to buying luxury sedans, the vast range of options from so many leading Auto making brands would make it difficult to choose one. But if we take a quick look at the customer feedback reports, leaving the extra expensive ones aside, there are few names that really could win the trust and goodwill of people by providing ample luxury benefits at an affordable range. Among them the name that places itself in the first row, is Acura.
When we dropped in the showroom of Acura at Las Vegas car dealership, we got the opportunity to take a closer look at the lineup of Acura luxury sedans that had the following models in the list.
2019 Acura TLX
The TLX model comes in seven trim options that are labelled by their engine power. among them, we got to test the 3.5L one that carries a 3.5 Liter V6 SOHC i-VTEC 24V Engine to work in tune with a 9 Speed Automatic transmission. The powertrain combination proved to be perfect by generating a horsepower of 290 @ 6200 rpm and a torque of 267 ft-lbs. @ 4500 rpm, which is at the higher side of its category. With this revving performance on its stride, the 2019 Acura TLX 3.5L version could make a fuel economy of 20 mpg on the city roads and 30 mpg on the highways.
What makes this a pure luxury sedan with its comfy cabin that is equipped with A—Spec package that includes an Interior clad in Ebony Leather Upholstery, Leather Steering Wheel, Keyless Ignition, Climate Control, Turn Signal in Mirrors, Adaptive Cruise Control, Dual Illuminating Vanity Mirrors, and Electro-chromatic Inside Rearview Mirror.
Acura understands that luxury can only be enjoyed in a worry-free environment. That is why every Acura TLX trim is equipped with safety and driver assistance packages that include Front and Rear Head Airbags Lane Departure Warning Accident Avoidance System, Emergency Braking Assist, Dusk Sensing LED Headlamps Ventilated Front Disc Brakes and Child Seat Anchors.

Besides cranking that impressive performance ratio, the 2019 Acura ILX did score well in its EPA rating for fuel economy as well, that counted 24mpg in the city road speed and 34 mpg when driven at highway speed.
The cabin of the 2019 Acura ILX looks swanky with its Ebony Leatherette Trimmed upholstery, Heated Front Sport Bucket Seats, Front Center Armrest, Leather Shift Knob, Automatic Air Conditioning, Distance pacing and Adaptive Cruise Control, 4-Wheel Disc Brakes, Electronic Stability Control, 6 Speakers Acura Audio System to play the in-built Radio and lot more to keep you entertained.
