Naturally, at least for now the TLX-L will be produced in the near future as a China-exclusive deal, though there have been cases when such elongated models have crossed the pond to the United States.

Previewed as in near-production concept form at the Shanghai Auto Show this week is the Acura TLX-L prototype.

The Acura TLX made its debut as a refreshed, beakless 2018 model earlier this month at the NY auto show, but regular sedans aren't good enough for the rapidly growing China market. An offer of the BMW 5er Long Wheelbase in other markets is not planned as with the predecessors.

The 13.3 centimeter extended wheelbase brings the 5 Series to a total length of more than five meters. It's clearly based closely on the latest version of Honda's midsize luxury sedan revealed - complete with its more crowd-pleasing grille - at the New York Auto Show last week, but adds more space for the rear passengers by increasing the wheelbase.

Rear seat space is an important feature to prospective buyers in China and the new TLX-L will be built locally for the Chinese market.

Built in collaboration with BMW's Chinese partner vehicle maker, Brilliance, BMW claims that the new model is 130kg lighter than its predecessor. This is the second Acura model to be manufactured in China with the first being its compact CDX crossover. This is definitely good partnership which will largely benefit both Chinese consumers and the company at the same time. Details on its engine, powertrain, infotainment system and much more are not available.
