Even the cheapest TLX doesn’t feel spartan, with enough features to keep the driver and passengers comfortable. 17-inch wheels in a gray, ten-spoke design identify this model and, like every other TLX, there is a remote-operated function for the windows and moonroof. While leather adorns the seats of other TLX models, this version makes do with leatherette which still manages to feel of good quality. The heated front seats have three-level heating, and the driver’s seat includes power lumbar support. The dual-zone climate control includes air filtration and humidity control. A large number of functions can be accessed via buttons on the steering wheel, including the adaptive cruise control and settings for lane keeping assist. Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth streaming audio, SiriusXM satellite radio, Pandora compatibility, and Siri Eyes Free are all included, but this model only has seven speakers for the audio system next to the ten in higher-spec versions. Also missing is Acura’s navigation system, although the standard TLX still boasts a multi-view rear camera, a full complement of airbags, and a collision mitigation braking system as part of its safety package.
