2018 Acura TLX interior

The 2018 Acura TLX is all about capable comfort. The road-ready TLX might not catch your eye like other sports sedans, but it makes up for the lack of curb appeal with refinement.
The TLX’s cabin is a cozy display of quality materials, secure trimmings, and appealing tech—and it can all be yours for $33,995.
Best of all, the TLX doesn’t lock its coolest attributes behind a paywall. Features like LED ambient lighting and a stainless steel footrest come standard. Let’s take a closer look inside.

AcuraWatch™ driver assistance is a solid addition. This package includes a lane-keeping assistant, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, road departure warning, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking.
If you’re willing to shell out a few extra grand for additional packages, you’ll access more advanced features such as navigation, voice commands, blind-spot monitoring, and a 360-degree camera. Acuralink, the smartphone companion app that lets you remote unlock your vehicle, is exclusive to the technology package and above.


With 14.3 cubic feet of storage space, the 2018 Acura TLX is average in the cargo department. However, the cabin does house many different cubbies, bins, and door storage for small items. The technology package features a wireless charging space to put your phone.


Sleek, smooth, and stunning, the 2018 Acura TLX has a highly stylish interior design. Though some may find its lack of cabin accents a little bland, real style isn’t skin-deep. This interior features a variety of upscale touches and tech—and bright red or deep brown seat color helps you stand out from the pack!

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
