Acura Exhibits World Premiere of Acura TLX-L Prototype at Auto Shanghai 2017


SHANGHAI, Apr, 19 2017 - (JCN Newswire) - Acura today exhibited the world premiere of the Acura TLX-L Prototype at Auto Shanghai 2017 (The 17th International Automobile & Manufacturing Technology Exhibition, Press days: April 19-20, 2017, Public days: April 21-28, 2017).

The Acura TLX-L Prototype is a China-exclusive model developed based on the needs of our Chinese customers. While maintaining TLX's high-quality driving performance unique only to a luxury sedan, occupant comfort was further improved by expanding the cabin space for rear passengers by increasing the wheelbase. The production model of TLX-L is scheduled to go on sale in China in 2017.

Other models on display at the Acura booth include the Acura MDX, which will undergo a minor model change in June 2017, a special model of the Acura CDX, the China-exclusive SUV model, featuring a matte-finish body color as well as the Acura NSX, which was introduced to the market last year.
