Acura TLX

Price $44,105 – $59,500
Fuel consumption 8.0 – 12.3 L/100km

Now that’s what we call a sweet breath of fresh air. Completely redesigned for 2021, the TLX sedan is back with a much sleeker and more dynamic appearance. That inspired design illustrates Acura’s desire to carve itself a solid niche in the compact luxury segment. While the base model is impressive enough with a 272-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the real pleaser is the high-performance TLX Type S featuring a twin-turbocharged V6 that cranks out 355 horsepower.
