2018 Acura TLX: Ugly As Sin!

By  | 

Although the TLX is an entry-level premium model based on the Honda Accord, this model features its very own running gear, different engines along with an entirely different exterior as well as interior.

For its 2018 refresh, the automaker has thrown in quite a bit of enhancements to the model’s exterior, in comparison to its predecessor.

Take this with a grain of salt as nothing has been confirmed yet but the Acura TLX is rumored to be coming with a 2.4-liter naturally aspirated inline-four mill in its base model. This engine is supposedly able to produce 206 horsepower and 182 lb-ft of torque.

To aid in delivering its best, the engine is mated to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that will be powering its front wheels.

It is also said that there would be a 3.5-liter naturally aspirated V6 engine which is capable of churning out 290 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque featuring a front or all-wheel drive setup. This mill will be paired to a nine-speed self-shifter.

Styling Talks

It appears that most folks aren’t very concerned with what’s coming in the car; they’re more concerned with how it looks. And it looks like most fans haven’t taken a liking to the 2018 refresh.

While some folks like the way the rear-end of the car looks, most of them hate how the front view of the Acura TLX looks. Some particularly hate the chrome trim on the front bumper whereas other feel like the whole redesign is just plain ugly.

Well, do you think the 2018 Acura TLX looks ugly as sin, just like all these other folks?
