2023 Acura TLX Interior and Cargo

Acura TLX Interior & Cargo Rating

2023 TLX Interior

The interior of the Acura TLX highlights two things: its sporty character and a refined nature. Acura has gone to great lengths to improve the interior of the second-generation TLX, and we think it has done an excellent job. The choice of materials is spot on and includes classy options like open-pore wood, and the build quality is up there with the best of them. There are several materials to choose from and a slew of impressive standard features. In terms of interior space, the back seat gets a bit tight, but there's lots of space in front, and driver visibility is good in general. Acura has crafted a comfortable and classy space that will appeal to many.

Seating and Interior Space

Step inside the TLX, and you'll be welcomed by a spacious cabin that offers its front seat passengers ample space. Headroom isn't class-leading, but at 37.2 inches, taller passengers will still feel comfortable, and with 42.5 inches of legroom, the majority of people will have more than enough space to get comfortable. The front seats boast heated 12-way power adjustability in the base, Technology, and A-Spec class, although A-Spec models also include ventilation up front. From the Advance trim, 16-way power adjustability with power lumbar support, thigh extensions, and side bolsters is standard Those in the rear will have less of a good time: with only 34.9-inches of legroom, taller passengers will feel slightly cramped, and the 36.3 inches of headroom can also feel tight for lanky persons.

2023 TLX Trunk and Cargo Space

Executive sedans are expected to carry their occupants in comfort, deliver an engaging driving experience, and offer a reasonable amount of cargo space. The Acura TLX manages to do all of these with varying yet impressive levels of competence, but its cargo-holding capacity isn't one of its better traits. The TLX has 13.5 cubic feet of trunk space, which is disappointingly low when compared to cars such as the Honda Accord, which gets 16.7 cubes, or the BMW 3 Series, which boasts 17 cubic feet. Still, seats fold down in a 60/40 split if you need more space.

Small items can be stored in the glovebox, large center console storage bin, and sizable door pockets. Those in front get a set of cupholders in the center console.
