2018 Acura TLX Redesign and Changes
As we already mentioned above, we are expecting to see some changes on the exterior of the new 2018 Acura TLX. Starting for the new bumpers, both on the front as well as on the rear, we should be able to get a new front-end, just like the one used on the MDX crossover. There should be a pentagon shaped grille, a large air intake, a reshaped fender, and the headlights should incorporate the latest LED technology.
On the back, we expect the fender to change a bit as well as the rear lights should be slightly different.
