• 2020 Acura TLX Performance Specs

Drivers looking for a luxury sedan that still puts out a stellar performance have several options to consider, but don’t overlook the 2020 Acura TLX. Not only does it have all the bells and whistles of a true luxury sedan inside, it is also a boss on the road, “offering an expert blend of performance, comfort, and reliability,” according to Edmunds.com. With two engine choices, two transmissions, and either P-AWS or SH-AWD, drivers can select the powertrain that’s perfect for their driving style.


Engines and Horsepower

The power of the TLX starts with the engines under the hood and the TLX offers a choice of two dynamic options. The standard engine is a 2.4L that produces up to 206 hp. With smooth and refined power, it delivers a high-quality performance. For drivers wanting a bit more oomph, there is an available 3.5L V6 engine that produces up to 290 hp and leaves everything else in the dust.

  • 2.4L Inline-4 engine – 206 horsepower
  • 3.5L V6 engine – 290 horsepower




With the two engine options comes two transmissions, each complimenting the engine it is paired up with. The inline-4 engine works with an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission with torque converter and Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters. Designed originally for the track, this transmission offers a superior performance.

For drivers who favor the V6 engine, the TLX will come with a 9-speed Pushbutton Automatic Transmission, also with Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters. This transmission gives drivers the chance to drive in a fully automatic mode, with the choice of economic or sport shifting, or in a fully manual mode for a more engaging experience behind the wheel.

All-Wheel Steering

The Precision All-Wheel Steering (P-AWS) is a front wheel drive system. As the standard for both engine options, the P-AWS is designed to independently adjust to angles which produces a better stability and more agile handling in any number of driving situations.


For added control and an enhanced performance on slippery roads, the V6 engine can come with the Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) System and deliver the power under the hood to all four wheels. The intelligence of the system can shift power from the front wheels to the rear wheels or from side to side—wherever more power is needed. The result is a better and safer performance.


Active Safety Features

Every model of the Acura TLX has a list of active safety features that work to keep the TLX performing at its best, even on less-than-ideal roads or in inclement weather. These features help the TLX maintain good traction control, come to a stop more quickly without skidding, and ensures the TLX is clearly visible to other drivers with LED Daytime Running Lights.

  • Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control and Motion Adaptive Steering
  • 4-Wheel Anti-Lock Braking System
  • Electronic Brake Distribution
  • Brake Assist
  • Hill Start Assist
  • LED Daytime Running Lights
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System with Location and Pressure Indicators and Tire Fill Assist



Within the trim level packages is the Acura TLX A-Spec, which adds a number of performance-enhancing and driver-centric features. For drivers who love to drive, the A-Spec is the model to consider. Exclusive performance features on this package include:

  • 19 x 8.0 Shark Gray Split 5-Spoke Wheels
  • Round LED Fog Lights
  • Gloss Black Decklid Spoiler
  • Dark Chrome Grill and Lighting Details
  • A-Spec Styled Front and Rear Bumpers
  • A-Spec Side Still Garnish
  • Sport Seats with Alcantara Seating Surfaces and Trimmed Interior
  • Red Accent Lighting
  • Red on Black Gauges
  • Black Headliner

Fuel Economy

Depending on which engine and drivetrain you choose, the fuel economy outputs will vary slightly. Acura prioritizes efficiency along with power, so any TLX will achieve impressive fuel economy on the road with the Acura TLX Standard when paired with the 2.4L engine getting up to 33 mpg on the highway*.

  • 2020 Acura TLX Standard with 2.4L engine – 23 city / 33 highway / 27 combined mpg*
  • 2020 Acura TLX Standard with V6 engine with P-AWS – 20 city / 31 highway / 24 combined mpg *
