The all new 2021 Acura TLX and TLX Type-S are here with official price starting at ₦14.5 million (SH-AWD “Super Handling-All Wheel Drive” starts at ₦15.1 million). Honda is moving its Acura luxury brand upmarket by highlighting its performance chops. It is a strategy that began with the return of the NSX sports car at the 2015 North American International Auto Show and has shown more recent success with the arrival of new Acura RDX in 2018.
The TLX version shares a lot of tech from the NSX and will have a double wishbone front suspension and multi link rear as standard along with a 50% more rigid body and performance-focused chassis! The dash to front axel ratio has been stretched by 7.8in to give the car an RWD look and they even call their new LED lights the Chicane. The body is sculpted just like the Concept.
All TLX models will pack a 2.0L Turbo 4 from the Type-R and RDX making 272HP and 280 lb-ft of torque and then comes the all new 3.0L twin scroll turbo in the Type-S developed by the NSX team. This new powertrain should make around 355HP sent through Acura’s SH-AWD mechanical torque vectoring system and all engines will be paired to a 10 speed auto gearbox. The Turbo 4 can be had in FWD or SH-AWD too.
Inside is an all new cockpit with a 10.2in True Touch infotainment system and a totally new NSX inspired design. The sportier models get those beefy sports seats too. Advance trims get open pore wood, aluminum finish, and ELS 3D Audio. Type-S and A-Spec models get the beefy flat bottom wheel too. The Type-S has quad tipped exhausts and a unique body kit along with 20in wheels with a 10spoke or NSX Y-Spoke design, adaptive dampers and way more. The TLX will go on sale this fall with the Type-S next Spring.
