When Acura designers got together to redesign the current TLX for its mid-cycle refresh
, the team knew that it had to get things right. After all, the brand's (previously) uninspiring aesthetics were causing it to lose ground to more outlandish-looking luxury cars, and with Lexus sopping up sales using grilles that made its cars look like crazed madmen, Acura decided to follow along
and see if the look would be a fit. We caught up with the TLX in Shanghai where it posed for our camera and showed off its longer wheelbase.
