Acura isn't making major changes to the TLX and TLX Sport, but it has nonetheless announced pricing and a few minor updates.

A base 2.0T is now $40,745 after destination, adding $4K for the Technology Package. An A-Spec is now $47,495, and add SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) and you'll pay $49,695. An Advance Package car costs $51,945.

The 3.0T Type S comes in three flavors and the base car is $56,445 and adding performance wheels and tires makes it $57,245. The PMC Edition is $63,995. All prices here included destination.

The Type S now has a 20-percent stiffer chassis, thanks to additional chassis bracing that increases torsional rigidity. It also has a new front fascia with a grille that improves cooling.

Finally, Acura is now offering a maintenance plan that lasts 24,000 miles or 24 months, whichever occurs first. It covers oil and filter changes, tire rotations, and multi-point inspections; and it's transferable to the next owner if it has not yet expired.

Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at Web2Carz.com. He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for About.com, CarFax, Vehix.com, High Gear Media, Torque News, FutureCar.com, Cars.com, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as AutoGuide.com, Off-Road.com, and HybridCars.com. He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.

    The basic proposition here hasn't changed since the first TLX. You get a 330i competitor for cheaper or an M340i competitor for the price of a similarly equipped 330i. Is that a compelling deal? Mmmmaybe. The Acura badge doesn't mean as much as it used to, and the product doesn't have the advantages of light weight and tossability that the TSX did back in the day.

    Good example of the problem with new cars. Lots of money for not a lot of difference between various models and those that are 10 years old. Infotainment is sharper, but the rest of the car isn't.

    This TLX is very heavy and despite being FWD-based is extremely space inefficient given its footprint.

      Right you are! They could take 11th-Gen Accord Touring bones and be able to adapt the 3.0T V6 for the Type-S, and I would consider something like that for, say, $2,500 over the Accord Touring, keeping the K20C1.

    The 2022 Accord Touring is still a better value than the base TLX! Plus, you actually have some room in the backseat, unlike the TLX, which actually has less room than a Civic!

    I don’t know if 10th-Gen production has ceased, so if you want the same performance in a larger package before the Accord loses the more powerful engine option which has been around for 27 model years until Honda taketh it away thanks to the greenie-weenies, better grovel to a Honda dealer yesterday!
