Our family recently had the opportunity to drive the new 2021 Acura TLX. This sedan was perfect for us and a really nice car to drive. Here is my Acura TLX Review

2021 Acura TLX Review

The roomy TLX performs well, has all the tech you could want, and is handsomely designed. It features the powerful 272-HP VTEC Turbo engine.

With a body that is sleekly sculpted and boasts of a subtly imposing front grille. Flanked by LED headlamps that resemble the eyes of a cat on the hunt.

The interior is just as sleek with molded seats and ambient lighting. There is enough room for a driver and 4 passengers, as well as cargo space in the trunk.

Audio and Connectivity Technology

The TLK features an ergonomic touchpad on the console that allows you to precisely control the 10.2-inch HD color display.

Every spot on the touchpad corresponds to a specific area on the screen that way you can remain focused on the road ahead.
