Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


Since the 2021 Acura TLX was a completely new car from Acura only borrowing the TLX badge, we suspect that the 2022 Acura TLX will be a carryover model along with a similar powertrain and exterior design. The Acura TLX is a new age sedan that offers excellent performance and comfort aided by tech enabled features. However, the 2022 Acura TLX awaits an official release; it will rival against the 2021 Audi A4, the 2021 BMW 3 Series, and the 2021 Honda Accord.

2022 Acura TLX Pricing and Features

The Acura TLX comes with a FWD or AWD setup, you do not get any additional trims though you can choose any of the 3 style and package configurations those are the Technology Package, the A-Spec Package and the Advance Package. For the 2022 Model Year we are still restricted to guessing the prices that may be bumped by $2,000 due to inflationary reasons.

Prices for the 2022 Acura TLX along with various packages have not yet been released still we estimate that it will cost $39,000 for the Acura TLX Standard, $43,000 for the Acura TLX Technology Package, $46,000 for the Acura TLX A-Spec Package and $48,000 for the Acura TLX Advance Package.

We Recommend

The 2022 Acura TLX is a value for money sedan and it is available in only one trim, however, one can surely choose among the 3 available packages. You can buy the Acura TLX sedan for great discount on price at dealers. The technology package seems a smart choice for customers willing to buy an Acura TLX and need more usable features rather than fancy ones.

2022 Acura TLX Engine and Performance

Acura has been engineering some of the most efficient and refined powertrains and the story is the same with the Acura TLX sedan. The latest engine in the Acura TLX offers more efficiency along with optimum power delivery. The 2022 Acura TLX is expected to equip the same 2.0-Liter turbo four-cylinder engine coupled with a 10-speed Automatic transmission system. 

This engine is pretty much peppy to drive and makes around 272 hp and 280 lb.-ft. torque output. There’s also an option to upgrade to a more powerful and bigger 3.0-Liter V6 powerhouse that generates 355 hp and 354 lb.-ft. of torque. The latest version gets improved overall performance and athletic control. The Acura TLX offers a reliable front-wheel-drive setup as standard but that can be switched with an all-wheel-drive setup for better traction and stability.

The Acura TLX offers the best in class performance in its segment with 272 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque, it pulls with great confidence on the road and is also fun to drive for its agile character. However, the BMW 3 series has a more torquey motor inside it but lacks behind in power output.

How fast is the 2022 Acura TLX?

The 2022 Acura TLX will most probably have the same turbo 2.0L inline 4 engine under its hood. Having the same engine and transmission and no tweaks to the power figures means that the vehicle will perform the same way as the 2021 Acura TLX performs on road. The 2022 Acura TLX goes from standstill to 60 in just 5.9 seconds and does a quarter mile in 14.5 sec.

When compared with competitors, TLX is powerful on paper then the lot and also gets paddle shifters for better shift and handling. However, in the real world the Acura is beaten by its less powered competitors by a small margin that can be contained as inconsiderable. The Audi A4 sedan is the fastest of all and is followed by its german sibling the BMW 3 series.

2022 Acura TLX Fuel Economy

Acura has tried to maintain a subtle balance between performance and efficiency in its flagship sedan. The 2022 Acura TLX will be completely based on the 2021 Acura TLX and it means both will offer the same fuel efficiency and power. 

The 2022 TLX is expected to have a combined fuel efficiency of 24 MPG and will return upto 21 MPG on cities. A huge 15.9-gallon fuel tank counts for a long driving range, making it an ideal choice for long weekend getaways.

The BMW 3-Series is the most efficient sedan of the lot, followed by Audi A4. The new 2022 Acura TLX is expected to deliver impressive efficiency as well with a combined mileage of 25 MPG. The driving range of the car is optimum for long weekend getaways as well as regular city commutes. Acura is stepping up the game in the segment by offering refined figures and new tech inside.

2022 Acura TLX Interior

The interior of the Acura TLX has seen significant improvements with a plush seating arrangement, ample passenger space, a new infotainment setup, and multiple in-cabin storage options. The cabin is expected to be more charming with few additional detailing and upholstery options. The standard version is wrapped in premium leather upholstery. 

The optional Milano leather available in the technology package as well as Red perforated leather is expected to be a part of the 2022 package. Creature comforts like 12-ay power adjustments, a driver eccentric dashboard design, Automatic Climate Control, and an intuitive infotainment system are added.

The most spacious sedan in the lot is the Honda Accord followed by BMW 3-Series. Acura TLX has also showcased a capacious interior with ample legroom for both front and rear passengers. Packed with the latest AcuraLink infotainment setup and premium material usage, the car reflects opulence from every corner.

What are the infotainment features in the 2022 Acura TLX?

For the year 2022, the infotainment setup of the Acura TLX will include an intuitive 10.2-inch touchscreen interface along with the latest connectivity options and onboard Navigation. A 13-speaker premium sound system by ELS and an optional 17-speaker ELS Studio sound system under the Technology package is offered. Apart from a mesmerizing ride experience, hassle-free connectivity via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are available. Additional features like in-car Wi-Fi, Voice Recognition, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, and steering mounted controls are provided.

2022 Acura TLX Exterior

After a complete makeover of the exterior for the 2021 MY, the Acura TLX gets sharp headlights, a streamlined front, a diamond-shaped front grille, and razor-sleek side looks. Driving style can be adjusted with multiple modes. Impressive agility around corners and high-speed stability are showcased by the new TLX, thanks to the terrific chassis tuning by Acura. The 2022 model year will also get the same design. 

Though, we are expecting some more options in wheels and colors. Striking features like a diamond-cut front grille, massive 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, sharper Jewel Eye LED headlights, and new Phantom Violet Pearl color available with the Technology package show up the sporty vibes of the car. Distinctive Acura styling can be witnessed with the signature grille design, sleek sides, razor-edge front, and aggressive performance tires.

The 2022 Acura TLX has more usage of lightweight material for enhanced driving with better aerodynamics. Dynamic stability of the car may see an improvement with better weight distribution and high agility while cornering. Overall dimensions of the car are expected to be similar to the previous year's model. The Technology Package also gets you a striking color option and many impeccable details and badging for the same.

2022 Acura TLX Safety

The 2022 Acura TLX awaits safety crash tests and ratings from independent agencies such as IIHS and NHTSA. Safety and passenger well-being has been one of the topmost priorities of Acura. The new 2022 model is expected to get a bevy of advanced safety features and driver aids including Forward-Collision Warning, Automated Emergency Braking, Lane-Keeping Assist, Blind-Spot Monitoring, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.

The Acura TLX stands on a robust body structure that has assured high stability and optimum chassis tuning. The safety features offers advanced driver assistance technologies aided by a head-Up Display, and a 360-degree Surround-View Camera.

2022 Acura TLX Competition

2022 Acura TLX Vs. BMW 3 Series

The BMW 3 Series manages to be a better sedan than the Acura TLX for a lot of good reasons, the most important of them is its ride and handling character and a performance packed behaviour. The 3 series is fun to drive and sportier in terms of design. It rejoices the best of advanced tech features and a combination of safety and modernity. However, the Acura TLX offers more space and luxury for a lesser price.

2022 Acura TLX Vs. Audi A4

The Audi A4 is one of the closest competitors to the Acura TLX. The Audi A4 offers a neat and clean exterior design and a simplistic yet advanced interior design with numerous safety and tech features, its similarly fun to drive and offers the best performance with adequate power for daily driving conditions. However, the Audi A4 lacks in providing the luxury and style and when compared Acura TLX excels with more comfort and space.

2022 Acura TLX Final Verdict

Responding well to consumer needs, the Acura TLX has offered the best-in-class amenities and the latest infotainment system. There are four trim levels with both FWD and AWD configurations available to choose from. Things get better when climbing up the ladder with more sophistication, better detailing, and a thunderous powerhouse under the hood. The fully redesigned sedan is expected to deliver utmost comfort along with a thrilling drive experience at a budget price tag. The 2022 Acura TLX is expected to launch at a base price tag of $39,000 that offers great value when compared to rivals.

Acura TLX

Pros - Handling, smooth drive, spacious

Cons - Expensive!

Pricey but worth it! TLX is the definition of a luxury sedan! Both the exterior and interior design of TLX is striking. On top of that, it is very comfortable to drive. The transmission is smooth, precise, and quick. Handling is good and so is throttle response. In short, an easy and Fun to drive sedan! Other than they not negotiating for the price, everything was very good. I don’t think I could have asked for anything more.

My new Acura TLX

Pros - Stylish design. Gutsy engine. Excellent value.

Cons - Not-so spacious on the back. Lethargic gearshifts.

Performance, features bundled in style The TLX's stylish charisma surely made me consider it as a strong option when I was contemplating my sedan upgrade. With a test ride, I was quite convinced of the TLX with its potent performance from the inline-4 turbo engine. With 19-inch wheels, real leather upholstery, several driver assists, and a host of infotainment upgrades, the Technology pack seemed a better add-on than the base model. It has been a great, stylish daily driver ever since I have bought the car. Although the cabin is snazzy and feels great, the rear space is a little cramped. Sales staff were quite informative and courteous. They were quite transparent throughout the process - right from choosing trim until car delivery. Highl;y recommend.

Pros - High fuel economy, cargo space is great, high speed stability is good

Cons - Acceleration is bit sluggish, a little lack on fuel economy, covering of sunroof lacks a bit of luxury vibe

Efficient Sedan When you look for a mid size sedan acural TLX might be some good car to own, i have been using it for few months now and it feels a bit new to me. Its AWD smart system works perfect giving a stability and balance just needed. I appreciate it was a good decision that dealer helped me make buying it brings a good fuel economy. It works great for a daily ride car.
