Spied on the Street! 2018 Acura TLX (MMC)

Spiedbilde has captured the refreshed 2018 Acura TLX during what appears to be an advertising photo or video shoot.

Below is the text that Spiedbilde included with their photoset:

This is the 2018 Acura TLX, caught at a photo shoot in Long Beach California.

The TLX is the next model in line to get Acura's new face that was first applied to a production car on the 2017 MDX and was previewed with the 2016 Precision Concept. The headlights are also slimmer. To the rear, all models appear to gain exhaust cutouts, as on the MDX.

Notably, the TLX looks to gain a new, performance model in the line. Possibly in the line of the A-Spec model that debut on the 2016 ILX, one of the TLX variants shot here gets a more aggressive front end, prominent round exhaust tips and a subtle trunklid spoiler. It's likely the V6 variant will be offered in this trim.

One model that has been rumored is a TLX hybrid. It looks to be shot here, likely carrying some variant of the 2017 Accord Hybrid's powertrain.

The 2018 TLX should go on sale by fall.
