From the smallest detail to something many of us don’t usually think about too heavily — the steering wheel. The design for the flat-bottom, three-spoke, multifunction steering wheel was inspired by ones used in Formula One races.

The cabin is built with the finest materials, including leather, wood, aluminum, and carbon fiber.

A single screen is offered for the infotainment center along with digital gauges.

Standard in the 2018 TLX are items such as triple door seals, acoustic glass windshield, and active-noise control. While luxury items like Milano leather are an option for drivers to choose.

The 2018 Acura TLX also has two displays: one for navigation or other pertinent information and the second one for the infotainment center. These two displays can feel quite clunky and unnecessary.
