The TLX receives very few change for 2020, with paint new paint colors joining the palette. These include Canyon Bronze metallic, Majestic Black Pearl, Performance Red Pearl, and Apex Blue Pearl, which is exclusive to the A-Spec versions The biggest news is an ultra-limited-edition model called the TLX PMC Edition. Acura says it will only make 360 examples of this special TLX, which costs $50,945. While these sedans are hand-built in the same factory as the Acura NSX supercar, they have the same powertrain and mostly the same features as the TLX A-Spec.

Pros
Comfortable ride, top-notch seat comfort, choice standard features.

Cons
Infotainment looks outdated, interior fails to be truly luxurious, we need more power, captain!
