For the 2017 model year, the Acura TLX midsize sedan will wear a $31,900 price tag and comes with three new exterior color options.

The new TLX’s starting MSRP of $31,900 does not include the $940 destination fee, which means the 2017 version is approximately $200 more expensive than the 2016 model.

Engine options for TLX also remain unchanged for the new model year. Consumers can choose between a 206-horsepower four-cylinder motor or opt for a more powerful 290-horsepower V6 engine. In addition, buyers have the choice of standard rear-wheel drive or Super–Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) systems.

Updates for the new Acura TLX come in the form of three new exterior color options, which are Modern Steel Metallic, San Marino Red, and Lunar Silver Metallic. Furthermore, a new ebony black interior is available to those consumers who select either the Fathom Blue Pearl or San Marino Red exterior color options.

For those buyers who tend to focus more on a car’s safety, the Acura TLX earned the best possible safety rating of five stars last year from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Moreover, the 2017 TLX is available with advanced safety technology such as lane departure warning, forward collision warning, road departure mitigation, lane keeping assist, blind spot information, adaptive cruise control, and a collision mitigation braking system.

“The Acura TLX continues to receive accolades for its combination of styling, driving dynamics and luxury refinements,” said Acura Division Vice President and General Manager Jon Ikeda. “TLX embodies the performance and technological sophistication of the Acura brand.”

It should be noted that while the base model carries a starting MSRP of $31,900, the price tag of new TLX can jump up to $44,800 when fitted with optional features such as the V6 engine, SH-AWD, and advanced package.

The 2017 Acura TLX is currently available at US dealerships.
