● Model review

Acura TLX-L is the second model produced by GAC Acura. Compared with the old model before domestic production, the front face of the model is very obvious. It looks exquisite and sharp. However, the similar family-style design has been seen on the CDX before, so It does not look unfamiliar, and it is undeniable that the visual impact and recognition are very high. The most worth mentioning is the headlights, which are well integrated with the entire front of the car, and all LED headlights are standard. This is definitely good news for those who want to buy low-end models.

From the actual experience, after the wheelbase is lengthened, the 1.82 meters tall can have more than two punches in the back row of legroom, and although there is a relatively high bulge in the middle of the back row, the longitudinal length can put the foot. The performance is still very good, the downside is that the front and rear head space is a bit cramped.
The trunk is the mainstream performance in the same class of models. There is still a lot of space to put down the three suitcases, and the rear seats can be placed in a 4/6 ratio, which can be operated by the handle of the trunk. The space is diverse and convenient. Sex is guaranteed.
