ACURA PICKERING REVIEWS THE 2018 TLX SH-AWD TECH
Debuted back in 2014 for the first time, the Acura TLX was the result of the combination of two different models—the TL and the TSX. Acura tried, at the time, to launch to the market a more composed and competent sedan than earlier models, and they succeeded.
The truth is that the sales numbers were great and this is one of the reasons why there is a new 2018 Acura TLX SH-AWD Tech, this time with a more sporty look.
Looking at the exterior, the Acura TLX SH-AWD Tech has a lot of changes starting in the front. Instead of the old “beak” grille, the 2018 TLX SH-AWD Tech now comes with a more visually appealing mesh grille, providing this sedan with a beautiful nose.
Even though there are only 5 colours to choose from, you may have a hard time figuring out which exterior colour you prefer on the 2018 Acura TLX SH-AWD Tech. Each of the available colours—Crystal Black Pearl, Lunar Silver Metallic, Modern Steel Metallic, Obsidian Blue Pearl, and Bellanova White Pearl—are all suited very well to this new sedan.
