The 2021 Acura TLX Type S is the next evolution of the long-running performance variation of the Acura sedans. Reviews for the already established 2021 Acura TLX have been glowing, brimming with what Motor Authority cites as “sound and emotion.” The sound mostly comes from the new 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine. The emotion? From the overall affordable package that includes impressive aesthetics, suspension, and audio. With the base model being considered a return to form for Acura, the more exciting addition to the luxury line is the powerful Type S iteration which holds up these same balanced pillars.

The 2021 Acura TLX Type S is a return to form that respects your wallet


The 2021 Acura TLX Type S is a beast under-the-hood. With a dual-scroll turbo V-6 engine that produces a whopping 355 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. This is surprising considering the vehicle’s affordability, and all that power goes straight to the all-wheel drive. While the base model of the 2021 Acura TLX has the option for adaptive dampers, they’re included with all models of the Type S revision. As for tire options there is the choice between 20-inch 255/35 all-season and summer performance tires.

Reports, reviews, and impressions contain a general consensus that one of the most impressive aspects of the engine is the aforementioned sound. Providing a natural and satisfying atmosphere to the all-wheel driving experience. This atmosphere of satisfaction is extended to the options that are available with the included drive modes. Ranging from variations that ensure the best handling on any type of road to the Sport+ mode for adrenaline junkies, the integrated dynamics system will allow the specific calibration to suit your needs.

A “tailored interior” proves performance on the inside


The interior of the 2021 TLX Type S is just as impressive as what is under the hood. Touting a leather, sport-trim steering wheel, and Ultrasuede trim seats for the drivers and passenger. The 10-inch touch screen interface sits in the middle of the dash and ensures ease of use over time with continuous software updates in the future.

The 2021 Acura TLX Type S, will certainly be one of the more popular sedans on the market. To stay up to date on everything Acura, be sure to like our Facebook page here.
