2021 Acura TLX Type S

I've been keeping my eye on this and really want to drive one when they come out. Re-Tuned SH-AWD for rear bias, 355hp 3.0L V6 Turbo, adjustable suspension and drive modes, brembo brakes, etc.


This car will go right up against the current Audi S4 yet most likely will be less out the door in cost.


It looks great on paper IMO for the price. I like the interior and exterior design also.

It's a good looking car, and the specs are great. It's interesting that it's a transverse engine, still, because the proportions really don't look like it.

Agreed.

They also designed in a double wishbone suspension up front like the Acuras of the 90s. It might be a winner for Honda/Acura.

It has more of a hofmeister kink than most BMWs these days.
