Acura revealed the quickest, best-handling and most well-appointed sedan in the brand’s 35-year history – the all-new 2021 Acura TLX.
With a model-exclusive body structure and chassis architecture, all turbo engine lineup, and an athletic stance with bold proportions, the new TLX delivers dramatic gains in both style and dynamic performance.
The new TLX will be powered by a 2.0-liter DOHC, direct-injected and turbocharged engine with VTEC producing 272 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torque, mated to Acura’s incredibly responsive 10-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift. When it arrives in spring 2021, the TLX Type S will deliver power from an all-new 3.0-liter, 24-valve, DOHC direct-injected and turbocharged engine.
The 2021 TLX’s more premium, personal and tech-focused cabin takes inspiration from the Acura Precision Cockpit’s intuitive functionality and flowing lines. A-Spec and Type S models feature unique details throughout the cabin, including a thick-rimmed, flat-bottom steering wheel wrapped in perforated leather with contrast stitching and larger metal-plated paddle shifters. In addition to unique materials and colors, the TLX Type S interior is distinguished by Type S badging on the door sills, steering wheel and embossed headrests.
Superior handling capabilities are now offered on all TLX models with the available rear-biased Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD). SH-AWD is offered as optional equipment on the 2.0-liter TLX and as standard technology on the TLX Type S, the first Type S model to feature all-wheel drive.
