The Acura TLX is back in 2023 to bring pleasure to people who are looking for a luxury sedan that doesn’t fear high speeds. The 2023 model keeps everything that made the 2022 Acura TLX one of the luxury sedans offering the best value for money. 

Acura Montreal Centre shows you the distinctions across the three trim levels on the market. Each of them represents a variation on the combination of comfort, design and performance that is the 2023 Acura TLX.

Acura Canada offers three trim levels for its new Acura TLX for sale:

While the Type S emphasizes an even more dynamic performance, the Platinum Elite comes with equipment and various accessories that improve the appearance and the comfort inside the cabin. However, we shouldn’t underestimate all the accessories that are included in the base model, the Acura TLX A-Spec.

The Engine of the 2023 Acura TLX and Type S

The main difference between the two trims, the 2023 Acura TLX and the Acura TLX Type S, is under the hood. 

The Acura Type S vehicles are the high-performance versions of the Japanese manufacturer’s upscale vehicles. From this point of view, the TLX Type S doesn’t disappoint. In fact, here’s how the Acura TLX specs compare across the trim levels: 

Trim Level




Combined Fuel Consumption

A-Spec & Platinum Elite

2.0 L 4-cyl.

272 horsepower

280 lb-ft

9.8 L/100 km

Type S

3.0 L V6

355 horsepower

354 lb-ft

11.2 L/100 km

Both engines are used to supply a 10-speed automatic transmission combined to all-wheel drive. Paddle shifters are installed on the steering wheel, for those looking for an approach that’s a little more practical while they’re driving.  

The enhanced performance of the Type S offers a unique driving experience. That’s actually what William Clavey, freelance journalist for RPM, also noted in his article on that trim: 

“… the driving experience of the TLX Type S offers a successful mix of brute force and sophistication.”

A Design Sculpted with Precision

The dynamism of the TLX by Acura is evident at first glance. The dual-rectangle exhaust finishers, as well as the elongated hood that leads to a diamond pentagon grille creates a unique style that combines Acura elegance with the athleticism of a sporty sedan.  

Several practical elements were added on the Type S that makes driving even more pleasant: 

  • 20-inch alloy wheels
  • Brembo front brakes
  • Quad-round exhaust tip, etc.

In addition, some accessories that are on the Type S can also be seen on the Acura TLX Platinum Elite, like the adaptive damper system.

Finally, a moonroof with tilt feature standard on the TLX will allow you to fully feel the fresh air, so that you appreciate each moment spent at the wheel of this incredible sedan!

The Acura TLX was designed to create harmony between the effectiveness of an aerodynamic design and the charm of a luxury sedan. It’s a car that is sure to turn heads!
