2021 Acura TLX with Technology Package vs 2021 Acura TLX with A-Spec® Package

Serving Memphis, TN

The 2021 Acura TLX is a next-generation sedan with a fresh, beautiful look throughout the cabin and across the exterior. The TLX is now offered in your choice of five trim levels, and these are the TLX base, the Technology, the A-Spec, the Advance, and the Type S. Now that you have narrowed down your options to the Technology and the A-Spec, you need to know how these two options stand apart from each other. Are you ready to learn more about the 2021 TLX Technology and the 2021 TLX A-Spec?


Behind the wheel, you will not notice any differences between the performance of the Technology and the A-Spec trim levels. They both have a turbo 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine with front-wheel drive and 10-speed auto transmission. The combination of equipment produces 272 horsepower. Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive is offered as an option for both of these trim levels.


The Acura TLX Technology builds on the base trim level’s features by adding 19-inch wheels, and the A-Spec trim level builds on the Technology’s features. When you compare the Technology and A-Spec trim levels next to each other, you may notice that the A-Spec has a sportier look with more athletic accents throughout the exterior. In addition, the A-Spec adds a few exterior color options that are not available with the TLX Technology.


The 2021 TLX Technology has all of the equipment offered in the base trim level, and it has a few higher-level features for you to enjoy. At this trim level, the TLX adds leather upholstery, a rear cross-traffic alert system, a 13-speaker audio system, a blind-spot monitoring system, customizable ambient lighting, and rear and front parking sensors. The A-Spec builds on the Technology’s features. Specifically, it adds brushed aluminum cabin accents, a flat-bottom steering wheel, 17 speakers for the ELS audio system, micro-suede seat inserts, ventilated front seats, and a wireless device charging station.
