2021 Acura TLX: Specs, Features & Trim Comparison

2021 acura tlx specs features trims

The brand-new 2021 Acura TLX can be designed to be the quickest, best-handling, and most well-appointed sport sedan in Acura history. The current Acura TLX quickly became the most popular Acura sedan and boasts remarkable luxury, comfort, and value since debuting in 2015. The brand-new 2021 Acura TLX will absolutely still keep these values at the center of the new style, but will now offer a brand-new sporty model called the S-Type.

Top Design Highlights

Our initial view of what the 2021 Acura TLX could look like was the Type-S concept vehicle. Many concept cars do not see production, but that is not the case with the 2021 Acura TLX. The proportions, stance, and looks are all faithfully taken from the popular concept vehicle. The bolder front end features Jewel Eye LED headlights with 4 LED elements and bright white ‘Chicane’ LED DRL. Sneak around back and you’ll see the ‘Chicane’ style in the LED taillights along with the twin exhaust outlets. Jump inside and you’ll notice a ‘Dual Personal Cockpit’ style, which not just concentrates on the driver but also the front guest. A sample of the remarkable features available on the 2021 TLX include a 10.2-inch HD display, a console installed touchpad control, a 7-inch full-color Multi-Information Display (MID), an optional 10.5-inch full color HUD and a lot more.

Performance Highlights

The entirely re-engineered Acura TLX 2021 shatters the performance assumptions of the Acura Sports Sedan. Standard power is provided by a 2.0L direct-injected and turbocharged 4cyl. engine with VTEC. This powerful engine produces 272hp and 280 lb-ft of torque and will be mated to a 10-speed automatic. The long-awaited Acura TLX Type-S will get its power from a brand new 3.0L turbocharged V6 engine. The horsepower and torque numbers are to be announced at a later date, but consider this: the exact same engineers that developed the engine for the current NSX are the ones leading this project. You can expect significant gains in peak horsepower and torque. The TLX Type-S will likewise get a 10-speed auto, yet it will be distinctively tuned to provide sporty and responsive characteristics.

Top Tech Highlights

Every 2021 TLX will include the AcuraWatch ™ collection of driver-assist and safety technologies. This impressive suite now provides new features like Traffic Sign Recognition, Driver Awareness Monitor, and Traffic Jam Assist. Traffic Jam Assist pairs with the Adaptive Cruise Control with Low Speed Follow by keeping the 2021 Acura TLX in its lane and at a predetermined interval behind an automobile detected ahead. Another excellent technology enhancement is the first-ever application of the Acura three-chamber front airbag.This new style functions like a baseball catcher’s glove to better cradle the front seat occupant’s head in an accident. Not only will the 2021 TLX be incredibly safe, it includes an unusual blend of power/efficiency, expressive looks, and impressive modern technology.

I don’t normally write reviews, but sometimes they are necessary! Let me just start by saying that Mr. Darrel Babineaux is the BEST and MOST ATTENTIVE car salesman I have ever encountered. I am new to the Acura family and was a little hesitant on making a firm decision. Originally, I was only coming to look, but ended up buying a new 2021 Acura RDX. I came on the car lot within an hour of closing, undecided on the trim I wanted. Mr. Babineaux offered some perspectives to help distinguish my preferable taste, without making me feel pressured into deciding ...

I would like to inform you all that the sales rep., Mr. Darell Babineaux is great to work with if you wish to buy a new Acura. He was attentive, honest and cordial. He also works well with the dealership's general manager, Mr. Wil Paz. Both were outstanding. Together, they worked to find the car that I sought.
