Thanks for checking out our very EARLY first look, in-person walk around with the new TLX Type S. We do wanna clarify, the exact timing for the embargo ending has yet to be announced, we just know it will end on May 20th in the morning. Acura says pricing, engine specs, weight, and driving impressions are embargoed until then. You can bet on us doing a 0-60 test, just like the A-Spec. Hoping to see this car crack under the 5-second mark for its 0-60 performance. Hope you are just as excited as we are to put the new TLX to the test!

@Shorai A-Spec should have been more than just an appearance package. The problem is the the TLX is slower than the Accord. I'm not sure why Honda goof'd on this. I'm well aware of the TL and TSX days. But the TL didn't have much performance mods. It had the usual coils, bolt ons and such. But everything else was almost non-existent.

@日産スカイライン SHAWD has always been very heavy. What could be a sub 3500 pound and under car makes it closer to 4000 pounds. Aspec has never been more than an appearance and suspension package though, but it is sad the accord is always quicker or just as fast as the TL/X. The 3g TL Type S was very popular and there is plenty of aftermarket support despite being US limited. Otherwise, the rest of the TL/X afterwards fell flat in terms of modding potential, I have to say due to low volume and sales. I own a 4g TL SHAWD stick myself.

@Shorai Power mods will be non-existent for the Type S because its a US-Car only. There will not be a big enough market for aftermarket parts. A car has to be in multiple markets to have great aftermarket potential.

The word on the street is the Type S won't break under 5 seconds due to weight. The A-Spec isn't even faster than the Accord.

Sofyan got 6.2 to 6.3 seconds in the A-spec, and (with an extra passenger) 4.7 to 5.1 seconds in the Type S. So the Type S is 1.1 to 1.6 seconds quicker than the A-spec. For reference in the A-spec, Car & Driver got 5.9 seconds and MotorWeek got 5.8 seconds, so the Type S should be able to do 4.2 to 4.8 seconds. Considering the Type S doesn't have launch control, that's pretty good!

Well hopefully a flash will give the new type S North of 350 wheel horsepower. I'm pretty sure it will easily hit 400 to the crank. When Honda puts forged internals into their cars they mean serious business. I think anymore and you will probably have to upgrade the turbos. And some fuel mods. But yesterday I went to my local Acura dealer and put my deposit down. Let's go

Just curious when could you of ordered this car like starting when? And when do these cars become physically available like in your hands driving it? Also is it common for a car to be released 6 months into its year? Like this is a 2021 but technically it’s not available until half of 2021 being past. I remember for example the 2006 STI ( the one I bought ) was available AND on the dealer lot in the fall of 2005. If Acura thinks by delaying the release and teasing is gonna blow this car up I think they are fools. This is a plain Jane looking automatic transmission sedan that weighs almost 2 tons

I think Acura did a good job on the Type S but did horrible on the pricing. The car supposedly starts at 50K base model which is the same price as the Audi S4 starting price of 50K. The Type S is overpriced for what it offers and the competition will eat it alive in terms of performance for money. Audi S4 for the same price. A bit more can get you a M340i. And you can find a good deal on a Infiniti Q50 Red Sport. Sadly - the S4, M340 and Q50 Red Sport are all faster too.

I highly doubt this car will come close to an M340 I in terms of performance most of Acura‘s more recent vehicles including their type S models have been disappointingly short in true performance . Acura has traditionally done a good job at delivering decent value for the money but if you want true performance look elsewhere.

Such an amazingly great color(wish I could have optioned this on my Accord) but I just can't get past the ride height of this car. It's 2021, can car manufacturers figure out a way to make a car act civil and still have a wheel gap that would deny Millennium Falcon access to the interior ? Moreover, I know I am not the only one, but I absolutely abhor the Dyson hair-dryer trend that's replacing true exhaust tips on the rear end of cars. Who thought this looked good ? Nevertheless, the biggest issue with this car is it's 2 Ton weight in AWD form. Asking a 2.0T to carry that weight plus all the ornamentation is a rather daunting task. I know its a luxury-variant but lets be honest its about the engine, tranny and handling when you are buying a Honda premium product. That engine is a Honda Accord engine and ain't nothing special (despite marketing in the pamphlets). Either way unless you were under a rock or a Honda Fan-Boi , you understood the A-Spec transmission in this car was a disappointing brick/anchor. The Type S is probably the only hope this car has for future iterations. Acura you better nail it with the Type S variant of this car otherwise your competitors will continue to eat your lunch and your sides.

0-60 in 5sec. Though the TLX is compact on the inside, its midsize on the outside, thus heavier than the competition. The other disadvantage is the variable turbo instead of twin, its going to be laggy. Regardless FINALLY a regular Acura with more than 300HP. I guess better late than never.

This is cool for a Acura “fanboy” but 355hp is what some cars put out that’s not performance models lol. I don’t see the big deal with this car at all. It’s heavy, doesn’t come RWD and automatic? This isn’t a sport sedan this isn’t even a high-performance car. It’s a weird Inbetween. The type S badge has never been high-performance this whole gesture of reviewer‘s talking about type S like it’s some AMG or BMW M5 competitor needs to stop. Type S Literally has no racing history it’s literally just been a trim package. When it comes to Japanese cars only Lexus got the formula right with the 472hp V8 RWD IS500 f sport performance And Upcoming ISF will have upwards of 500hp. This car is being over blasted no one was waiting for the return of the type S. What made the older models even worth talking about is there came 6 speed manual. This doesn’t. I literally would not buy this over any of its so called “competition”.

I like all cars but the TLX is just boring and the performance for a Sports car is disappointing. Especially when Lexus is blasting Infinity and Acura for the Japanese brands.
