The 2018 Acura TLX test prototype was seen during tests in the desert. It is expected that the updated model will be released next year.
While the car is disguised, you can notice that the radiator grille has undergone a change. Also the headlights seem bigger. Note also the changes in the tail lights.
The 2018 TLX probably continues to use a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and a 3.5-liter V6. Nevertheless, Acura specialists are likely to improve the performance of the units, as well as the fuel efficiency. The appearance of a hybrid model is not ruled out. For example, the 2017 Acura MDX received a 3.0-liter V6 with three electric motors, totaling 325 horsepower.
