Acura Announces Junior TLX A-Spec


Acura expands availability of the popular package.

Following last year’s redesign and the addition of the A-Spec sport package, Acura announced the 2019 model will gain a new Platinum White Pearl color, new 19-inch wheels, and a new 2.4-liter A-Spec sport version. The 2.4-liter model is an interesting proposition, especially considering the 206-horsepower engine comes hooked to an eight-speed dual clutch automatic, compared to the V6’s nine-speed auto. Opting for a 2.4 A-Spec will set you back $39,400 plus a $965 destination charge, representing a $6,400 price premium.

The extra cost of the A-Spec brings a matte-black pentagon grille with a dark chrome border, a reworked lower front fascia, LED fog lights, and a set of darkened Jewel Eye headlights. The kit also includes 19-inch Shark Gray alloys, a gloss-black painted deck spoiler, smoked taillights, a rear diffuser, and 4-inch wide dual exhaust tips. Moving inside, the 2.4-liter A-Spec gains the same sporty seats as the V6, which feature high-contrast stitching and piping. Elsewhere, there’s red LED ambient light, a black headliner, brushed aluminum instrument trim, and a thicker steering wheel with A-Spec badging.
