The 2021 Acura TLX Type S Is a Shockingly Sporty Sedan Post


Acura’s 2021 TLX Type S features a 3.0L Turbo V6 that puts out 355 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque with rear-biased Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®). A sport-tuned Adaptive Damper System and high-performance chassis bracing equals precise power, going zero to 60 mph in the mid-four-second range.
