Update 11/29/23: Acura has announced pricing for the 2024 TLX, starting at $46,195 with destination charges included. This makes it just over $4,000 pricier than last year. Meanwhile, the fancier A-Spec now costs $51,195, while the 355-hp Type S model will set you back $58,195.


The TLX ain't broke, so naturally, Acura didn't fix it. The brand has given its midsize sedan a modest mid-cycle refresh, with changes so miniscule that buyers likely won't even notice. Nonetheless, with more standard features and a quieter cabin, we're not complaining.




Acura refrained from fiddling too much with the TLX's beautiful bodywork, though avid observers will notice a new frameless grille design with an eye-catching web-like pattern. The previously standard 18-inch wheels have been switched out for larger 19-inch ones, while the sportier A-Spec model receives new split-spoke designs for its Shark Gray 19-inch wheels. Around back, there's a lightly revised rear spoiler in gloss black.


As for the TLX Type S, the high-performance model also adopts the frameless look for its grille, albeit with a different design focused on delivering more airflow to its turbocharged 3.0 liter V6. There are also new 20-inch wheels with a Berlina Black finish, replacing the old Shark Gray designs.


The TLX also introduces a couple new colors for 2024, with a new shade of Liquid Carbon Metallic for standard models, while A-Spec and Type S versions add a new Urban Gray Pearl color.




While buyers likely won't bat an eye at the changes to the exterior, they'll definitely notice the changes applied to the cabin. Most notably, the TLX benefits from a new 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, along with a larger 12.3-inch infotainment system to match it. While the latter receives a faster processor, it still uses Acura's frustrating trackpad controller.



Going for the entry-level TLX will now give you much more standard equipment, as the Technology Package is now marked as standard. As a result, all TLX models now have ambient lighting, a wireless charging pad, an ELS Studio sound system, and Milano leather seats. There are additional safety features as well, including a rear seatbelt reminder, an upgraded blind spot indicator, and tweaked camera and radar systems with wider fields of view.


Acura also made tweaks to cabin insulation in the TLX A-Spec, which should make for a quieter experience inside. This comes thanks to new acoustic glass on the front side windows, revised front fender liners, and thicker carpeting. Any further noise is cancelled out by the sedan's improved Active Sound Control system.


On top of the aforementioned upgrades to the TLX's interior, the Type S adds a head-up display in front of the driver, along with a higher-resolution surround view camera system. The Type S also takes advantage of the new digital gauge cluster with an exclusive Sport+ setting, which places an emphasis on performance stats.




Powertrains go on untouched, with standard TLX models featuring a turbocharged 2.0 liter four-cylinder making 272 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to the wheels through a ten-speed automatic transmission. In the TLX A-Spec, power is now routed to all four wheels. As for the more powerful Type S, you'll find the same turbocharged 3.0 liter V6 producing 355 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque. This model still features a retuned ten-speed automatic and standard all-wheel drive.


The 2024 TLX and TLX Type S will appear at Acura dealers as early as this month, with pricing to be announced in the coming weeks.
