When Acura TLX was first introduced in the market, the exterior styling wasn’t that intriguing but over time it has slowly evolved into a gorgeous machine. The 2022 Acura TLX might not come with tons of premium features like other vehicles in its class, but it clearly knows how to impress.
2022 TLX does offer decent performance along with a practical interior that is both attractive and loaded with tech bits. Qualities like these are the reason why it can easily stand strong against rival vehicles such as Honda Accord, Audi A4, and BMW 3 Series.
2022 Acura TLX Interior Design, Dimensions, and Comfort
Slide in via wide doors and get ready to be amazed by the 2022 TLX’s cabin. Just like the attractive exterior, the interior is unique and praiseworthy. The whole cabin is loaded with premium quality materials including brushed aluminum trim. Opt for additional packages and you will get even better materials with beautiful stitching. On top of that, Acura offers a vast variety of color combinations that should satisfy most. Yes, the dashboard might look a bit overwhelming at first because of the slanted design and how beefy it actually is. But TLX never fails to bring out its sporty nature. The cabin is designed thoughtfully to provide an excellent driving experience. Even the visibility in all four directions is amazing.
The analog plus digital gauge cluster looks spectacular. But it's the flat-bottom steering wheel we cherished, but for that, you will need to opt for the A-Spec package which costs extra. As standard, you get heated and power-adjustable front seats wrapped in synthetic leather upholstery. For Genuine Leather, you need to opt for the Tech package. You also get Dual-zone automatic climate control as standard. Despite being a compact sedan, you have adequate room at the front and the seats are nicely padded with good quality leather. Even the rear row seat is nicely tilted for a comfortable experience.

The 2022 Acura TLX offers impressive room in the front-row. This is better than what BMW 3 Series and Audi A4 offer. But it's the rear row that feels much more cramped than its rivals. This small drawback, especially cramped up legroom will turn down potential customers. On the other hand, the 2022 Honda Accord is the most spacious in the lot.
2022 Acura TLX Infotainment
Other than looking attractive, 2022 TLX also manages to offer a decent infotainment system. A 10.2-inch infotainment display is standard across the lineup and it looks amazing. But the only con about this display is that it is not a touchscreen which is just insane seeing how most of the vehicles come with one. This might be the main reason why the placement of the display is so far back. Any way to access the display, a touchpad is available. Despite working accurately it takes time to get used to. Other than accessibility, the display offers clear graphics.
Support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay is available but wireless connectivity is still missing. Other than this, you will find features such as a voice recognition system, Siri Eyes Free, Wifi hotspot, SiriusXM, and BlueTooth connectivity. USB ports and power outlets are also available at the front. A 10.5-inch heads-up is available in case you opt for the Advance package. For entertainment, you get a 10-speaker Acura audio system as standard. But we are sure audiophiles won't hesitate to pay extra for the ELS premium audio system with 17 speakers.

2022 Acura TLX Cargo Capacity
Thinking about going on a long road trip with your family? Don't worry, Acura TLX should provide a pretty good experience. But if you are a bit concerned about storing luggage in the back, then we suggest you open up the trunk. Power cargo access is standard and the opening is pretty wide for shoving in long objects horizontally.
But we must mention that the trunk’s height might pose some issues. You get a standard cargo capacity of 13.5 cubic feet; quite decent for its segment. You should be able to fit a few bags easily but in case you want to carry more, fold down the rear row seat.

The 2022 Acura TLX offers a decent amount of room for cargo space. However, when compared to its rivals, it only manages to surpass the Audi A4. Both BMW 3 Series and Honda Accord offer far bigger trunks.
Additional Interior Storage Spaces
Remember when we mentioned how TLX favors practicality? The cabin is loaded with several cubbies and trays for your personal effects. Other than the usual locking glove box which we must say is very cavernous thanks to the beefy dashboard design, you will find several spots around the center console. A tray with cup holders is available behind the touchpad and the center armrest reveals a hidden compartment.
The front row passenger receives an additional hidden compartment underneath the center console where one can easily stash in watches or even small-sized smartphones. As usual, the rear row occupants can access leather pockets behind front seats. But the foldable armrest provides two cup holders and a small tray that should fit a few coins.
2022 Acura TLX Creature Comforts
2022 TLX comes equipped with a good set of comfort features. First of all, the whole interior can be had in multiple soothing color combinations and one can easily update the interior materials with premium ones. On top of that, a configurable ambient lighting system is available. The base trim gets a decent set which includes dual-zone automatic climate control, synthetic leather upholstery, heated and power-adjustable front seats and a moonroof.
But if you are not afraid to spend some more then Acura offers heated and ventilated sport seats with even more adjustment options including power lumbar and thigh extension. Optional features such as a wireless charging pad, remote start, and heated rear seats are also available.
Other than the spectacular performance on the road, it never misses any chance to look stunning. Also, the cabin is spacious enough and offers a pretty good level of comfort and tech that should satisfy most. The absence of a touchscreen infotainment display is the only flaw that might repel some. Other than this, we can easily say that the interior of the 2022 Acura TLX is spacious and practical.
