The 2021 Acura TLX is set to launch as the quickest, best-handling and most well-appointed sedan in the brand's 35-year history. The #TLX Type S, with Acura's new 3.0-liter V6 Turbo and standard Super Handling All-Wheel Drive, arrives next spring well-equipped in the low to mid $50,000s.
The entry level TLX offers a 2.0L VTEC Turbo with 272 HP, 280 ft/lb of torque, this is more powerful than the previous model and gets fuel economy: 22 city / 31 highway / 25 combined/ ITs offered as front wheel drive or (SH-AWD) Super Handling all wheel drive car.
Handling is the biggest improvement and you feel the right away on the roads. Different drive modes allow you to choose how you want to experience the vehicle. Safety is critical in any vehicle and all the safety features are standard which should the way with every car on the road. The Acura Watch system offers all the advanced safety systems and earned an IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus rating.
Although the technology is improved I’m still not a fan of the touch pad system but everything is easy to use and intuitive. The features list is quite long and offers everything from heated and air-cooled seats to wireless charging to and amazing audio system which is an upgrade.
I was very pleased with how comfortable the drivers and passenger seats were to meet any bodies body. With the 12-way power seats with the optional 16-ways seats you will definitely be comfortable on any drive.
