Acura Stretches The TLX With Long-Wheelbase Prototype For China

Want a new Acura sedan, but find the TLX too small? You could step up to the bigger RLX – or, if you live in China, into the stretched TLX-L. Or at least you could at sometime later this year.

Previewed as in near-production concept form at the Shanghai Auto Show this week is the Acura TLX-L prototype.

Other changes are exclusive to higher trim levels and engine options. The V6 model gets a unique rear bumper with dual-outlet exhaust and 18-inch alloy wheels rather than the four-cylinder's 17-inch wheels.

The most visually unique variant of the TLX lineup is the new A-Spec model. It comes with a more aggressive front bumper, side skirts, and rear bumper with faux diffuser. Fog lights, round dual exhaust outlets, and a black-painted rear spoiler are also standard features. The A-Spec receives some performance upgrades as well. Front-wheel-drive TLX A-Specs get firmer shocks and more responsive steering on the front-wheel-drive version, while the Super-Handling All-Wheel-Drive (SH-AWD) version adds firmer springs and a stiffer rear anti-roll bar. Wider tires on 19-inch wheels also come fitted to A-Spec models.
