2021 Acura TLX Type S in Maple, ON

The 2021 Acura TLX Type S - The Future of Acura

Acura Canada first introduced its compact TSX and midsize TL models in 2015, only to later swap them for a single model, the TLX. When the TLX became available in Canada, it didn't take long before it was named a Canadian favourite, offering sportiness, high-tech performance, luxury, innovative safety technology, and unique styling. Over the years, the TLX continues to outrank the competition with state-of-the-art upgrades and advancements, which includes the new 2020 TLX PMC Edition. So, what can we expect for 2021? The 2021 Acura Type S Concept promises to bring Acura back to its racing roots with a high powered performance engine and strategic design that will thrill drivers, occupants, and onlookers.

The 2021 TLX Type S Performance

The TLX Type S is turbocharged with a 3.0L V6 engine that promises to generate intensely more horsepower and torque than the outgoing 3.5L V6, which currently boasts 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. It will also have Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) and a high-performance braking system. In comparison, base variants of the new TLX will reportedly use the turbo 2.0L 4-cylinder engine with a 10-speed automatic transmission, whereas the Type S receives unique tuning for a sportier drive.

The 2021 TLX Type S Design

Acura lengthened the dash to axle length by 8-inches and added 3.7-inches between the wheels to deliver a rear-drive sport sedan look. Lines are strategically placed across the hood and front fenders to gather at the diamond-patterned grille. In the rear, a high decked spoiler is balanced above dynamic taillights and quad exhaust tips.

The interior of the 2021 TLX Type S can be dressed in daring shades of leather and is delivered standard with a 10.2 infotainment screen, a 7-inch digital information cluster, a touchpad controller, and an optional head-up display. Choose from three drive modes that include normal, performance, and individual modes.

2021 Acura TLX Type S Safety and Driver-Assist Features

Every TLX Type S model will likely come standard with AcuraWatch, an industry-recognized trendsetter of innovative safety technology. AcuraWatch features an array of driver-assistive technology in the TLX that includes new features such as traffic-sign recognition and a driver-awareness monitor.
