2021 Acura TLX - Full Presentation - TLX Type S first look | Ready to fight Audi A4/S4?

Acura revealed the quickest, best-handling and most well-appointed sedan in the brand's 35-year history - the new 2021 Acura TLX.
With a model-exclusive body structure and chassis architecture, all turbo engine lineup, and an athletic stance with bold proportions, the new TLX delivers dramatic gains in both style and dynamic performance. The first Acura sedan fully designed around the brand's Precision Crafted Performance ethos, the 2021 TLX will arrive at dealerships early this fall with a manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) starting in the mid-$30,000 range.
The second-generation TLX also marks the highly anticipated return of Acura's Type S high performance variant after a decade-long hiatus. The TLX Type S, arriving next spring, will be powered by an all-new Acura exclusive 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine developed for Type S levels of performance. Additionally, the new TLX Type S will be the first Type S model to feature Acura's torque vectoring Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system, making it the best handling and most performance-oriented Acura sedan yet.
In fulfilling its mission as a thoroughly modern sport sedan, the 2021 TLX integrates a multitude of performance, comfort and connectivity technologies first deployed on the highly successful third-generation Acura RDX. These include a high-output 2.0-liter VTEC turbocharged engine, 4th-generation SH-AWD system, award-winning Acura ELS STUDIO 3D premium audio and the latest iteration of Acura's driver-focused True Touchpad Interface.

    W206 looks like 2 generations ahead of Acura. Its performance models, against which type S is competing, are so technologically advanced with their turbo-hybrid power unit and F1 type battery that I honestly do not know who in their right mind ready to pony up over $60K would choose an Acura TLX over a Mercedes.

    Acura is actually faster than Honda but shared the same engine and transmission,type -s are more like special cars from production line has more hp and torque compare to standard base model,bang for your buck,Alpha Romeo Giulia are the only one will outshine this model

    HI ACURA should have just put the 3.5 V6 280 hp back in and got rid of the 2.0 T. HONDA engine and later bring the turbo in. Just saying or a later 3.7 twin turbo older TL V6 but with turbos. that had already a 300 hp engine from the Late Model TL 3.7 sh-awd.

    They need to put a quick dual clutch transmission in the type S (perhaps borrow from the NSX😀). The automatic transmission in the 2020 base TLX is a bit slow to shift and not sure it can handle the close to 400hp the twin turbo V6 will be pumping out.
