2021 Acura TLX Type S Review

The wait for the 2021 Acura TLX Type S is (almost) over. After being discontinued more than a decade ago, the automaker’s Type S badge returns on the TLX sports sedan, set to arrive in dealerships by mid-June. Acura’s latest announcement breaks down the pricing for the TLX Type S and its High Performance Wheel and Tire Package to give enthusiasts a better idea of how much the performance model will deplete their savings accounts.

2021 Acura TLX Type S

Following the arrival of the 2021 TLX, the top-tier Type S trim is slated to go on sale June 23. Its 355 horsepower and 354 pounds-feet of torque come courtesy of Acura’s new turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6; a torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive system will be a first for the model. Exterior features like an open-surface diamond pentagon grille, quad exhaust outlets and two unique wheel options help the Type S stand out from lesser TLX trims on the road. 

Priced at $53,325 (all prices include a destination charge), the 2021 TLX Type S comes standard with 20-inch multispoke wheels with Pirelli Cinturato P7 all-season tires. A High Performance Wheel and Tire Package is also available; it upgrades the wheels with a split five-spoke design to reduce unsprung mass by more than 21 pounds, according to Acura. The high-performance wheels are wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero summer tires and come at a premium of $800. Both options come standard with the AcuraWatch suite of safety and driver-assistance features. 

Acura is limiting the production of the TLX Type S to fewer than 2,000 units for the 2021 model year. Prospective customers can build and reserve their Type S on an Acura microsite now.
