2021 TLX Type S Kicks Off Acura’s Year Of Type S


Acura Canada announced the on-sale timing for the highly anticipated 2021 TLX Type S, which returns the Type S performance brand to Acura showrooms for the first time in more than a decade. Arriving in June to dealerships, the 2021 Acura TLX Type S will carry a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) around $60,000.

Powering the 2021 TLX Type S, is a 3.0-litre Type S Turbo V6 that produces 355 horsepower and 354 lb-ft. of torque. A double-wishbone front suspension and Type S-exclusive Sport+ driving mode also have been specially engineered to provide additional performance and driver enjoyment, and for the first time in a Type S model, power is distributed through Acura’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system with true torque vectoring.

The 2021 TLX Type S is available in six exterior colours paired with two interior options, including an all-new Tiger Eye Pearl paint – exclusive to Type S. Numerous exterior signatures distinguish the TLX performance variant, including an open-surface diamond pentagon grille for increased airflow, large-quad exhaust outlets and an NSX-inspired lightweight wheel wrapped in a 255-series Pirelli P-Zero summer tire.
