Numbers are great--but what sets the new 2018 Acura TLX A-SPEC apart from its fellows is what it does differently from the classic Acura TLX sedan. It all starts right at the front.

The stunning new model adds a piano-black rear spoiler and rear diffuser, as well as dark chrome detailing at the LED taillights to immediately distinguish itself as a dynamic and dominant luxury sports car. 19-inch wheels, in "Shark Gray", cut an imposing figure on this sleek and polished sedan.

Inside, sport front seats are upholstered in your choice of Black Alcantara leather or premium Red leather, and can be heated or ventilated with six levels of control to achieve the perfect comfort for you and your passenger.

The 2018 Acura TLX A-SPEC also comes standard with the full Technology package (automatic wipers, 10-speaker premium audio, intelligent climate control system, blind-spot monitoring, and more).

A suave black headliner, a trim inspired by brushed aluminum, sporty red accents and subtle ambient lighting, and model-exclusive A-SPEC badging and styling round out the overall look and feel of the gorgeous new 2018 Acura TLX A-SPEC.

If you've been considering an upgrade in Concord, this athletic and well-equipped sedan may be the perfect option for you.
