The 2018 Acura TLX is a pioneering luxury sport sedan that’s able to harness up to 290 hp of V6 power, with Precision All-Wheel Steer or available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive delivering track-like thrills with every touch of the gas. That said, it’s not a vehicle that ever sacrifices safety. On the contrary, you’ll find the latest protection systems working without fail to ensure perfect peace of mind.

Standard Safety

To tame the power it holds beneath its hood, the 2018 Acura TLX has been fitted with a wide-ranging selection of active safety features that don’t come standard with competitors like the Lexus IS, including:

  • Vehicle Stability Assist with Motion Control and Motion Adaptive Steering
  • 4-Wheel Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
  • Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD)
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
  • Brake Assist
  • Agile Handling Assist

With such systems working tirelessly during each drive, you’ll experience precise control and impressive responsiveness.

Driver-Assistance Technology

Driving enthusiasts will already know that Acura has spent the last few years helping to develop the latest driver-assistance technologies. The 2018 Acura TLX bears the fruit of these efforts, with available features including:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System with Head-Up Warning
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow
  • Front and Rear Parking Sensors
  • Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Road Departure Mitigation System
  • Blind Spot Information (BSI) system
  • Rear Cross Traffic Monitor

Crash Protection

Even with the very finest onboard safety systems, no vehicle is ever truly free from the risk of a collision. Whether you’re zipping between Yukon and Norman or taking a cross-country trip, you need to make sure that you and your passengers will be protected from harm.

That’s why the 2018 Acura TLX comes with a next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure. In the event of a collision, this forward-thinking framework will automatically crumple to direct impact energy away from the passenger compartment. It’s one of the central reasons why the new 2018 TLX earned a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating* from the NHTSA.
