2021 Acura TLX Test Drive Video Review

Research more at www.autobytel.com
For many years Acura has built premium sporty sedans, but not luxury sport sedans. Certainly not on the level of cars like the BMW 3-Series. Now under their new banner of Precision Crafted Performance, Acura is ready to try again. With this, it's the 2021 Acura TLX, and it wants to be taken very seriously.

    the car looks great, but the rims... are kinda ugly. that's just my opinion. Thanks for sharing the review though.

    I agree on the under 6.0 0-60. I have a FWD A-Spec. I put 20" Black gloss Niche rims and Nitto GT55 Summer Tires and I'm constantly getting a 5.8 5.9 0-60 here in South TX., a little more respectable even though I cheated ( a little). And obviously she's heavier with SH-AWD, Adaptive dampers etc. Not a big fan of the stock A-Spec rims either which were heavy too.

    Then Cadillac shows up with 472 and 668 hp CT4-V and CT5-V for slight more money than 355hp Type-S!

    A 9th gen V6 Accord can do 0-60 in 5.2 seconds. Gas mileage for the V6 Accord is even better than this car. Don't get me wrong acura did a great job with this one. But it's no german sports sedan🤦 And when the type S comes out I'd like to test drive one to see how it compares to my other toys😁

    6.5 secs 0-60? I drive a FWD in New York City, I weigh 180lbs. This car does 0-60 under 6... I can bet any amount of money to anyone that says otherwise... I have done countless runs.

    The average American male is 5’ 10” tall. Nobody designs cars around you, beanpole. That’s hostile, yes, but there is an over representation of 6’ presenters on ACURA reviews thinking that anybody cares about their rear seating position. Find a 16yo kid and throw him back there. That’s your actual use case for the back seat of Dad’s midlife crisis machine.

    About time they updated that horrendous interior. The honda accord was more luxerious and functional all while depreciating at a fraction of the price compared to the tlx

      I was between the TLX and the accord. I chose the TLX. The ride is just incredible compared to the accord. Not to mention the sound system and having AWD.

      I did too. The trunk is too small for today's mid-sized sedan. Deal breaker for me. Nice car though. Definitely an improvement over the last version.

      Agreed, digital clusters age very poorly. The BMW i3's gauges already look like a $9 tablet purchased on Alibaba.

    What sucks about this car: rims, gauge cluster, gear selector, weight, and exhaust tips. Just my opinion

    • MrChad97Z

      I agree with your take on the Rims but I also think the tiny tires makes it look stupid. And the exhaust tips seem to make a different statement than the rest of the car. They dont look right. And sort of obnoxious. My first thought was, "Ouch, paint them black!". I dont like the 2 liter, or any 2 liter on any car for that matter. I dont know the weight but I bet it is up there. And in general, the car is too big and doesn't give the same "low and wide" stance impression that other cars do. Hopefully the 6 cylinder is better. I like the instrumentation panel. I hate cars that have all those stupid "Sport +, or sport or economy" settings. So just give me 1 instrumentation panel and turn it all on...native... I like the gear selector. BMW's are similar. Once you get used to it, you would like it ... I bet.

    Acura did a good job, I think it looks better than the A4, and 3 series. Hopefully the Type-S is great

      Acura has definitely done a good job. Nicer than the 3 series in my eyes as well. This new TLX reminds me a lot of the A4 Sportback which I think is one of the best looking cars right now.

    They really should have released the V6 Type-S version first. If it's supposed to be a sporty model. Also thanks for not complaining about the touchscreen. Which is a safety issue other reviewers don't care about.
