This 2021 Acura TLX joined our long-term fleet one year ago, fresh off winning our 2021 Drivers’ Choice Award for Best Luxury Sedan, as we felt it had an ideal mix of luxury, comfort, performance, and technology.
Well, it didn’t take many of the 22,116-miles that we drove to confirm that. Whether it was seeing us through an epic winter storm in Texas, providing driving pleasure during quick escapes through the countryside, or allowing us to eat up highway miles in exceptional comfort, the TLX has been the perfect companion.
There’s a lot to love about this TLX, which means there will be a lot to miss. Namely, the chassis, which is up for just about any type of driving. Whether it’s relaxed cruising or spirited cornering, the suspension responds accordingly, which is a good sign of proper tuning.
2.0-liter turbo 4-cylinder engines have become the power unit of choice for most luxury carmakers and the TLX’s is a good one; delivering 272–horsepower very freely and averaging a good 24.6 miles-per-gallon. So, farewell TLX. It’s been great to know ya!
