2022 Acura TLX Type S | Back From the Dead

  • Am Vor Monat

    savagegeesesavagegeese

    We review the latest revival from Acura, the 2022 TLX Type S. As they attempt to reboot the badge, the new turbocharged V6, and SH AWD bait enthusiasts to try the next-generation cars and upcoming MDX Type S. We cover in great detail the good, bad, and engineering of what this car has become. The other options are the Genesis G70, Mercedes C43, BMW 3 Series, and Audi S4. Is this enough to generate excitement for sedans again?

Jack: "Dynamically...it's kind of a let down". Best take on this car thus far.

This should be the A spec model. The Type S should really be made to the level of the BMW M340Xi for that money.

Don’t like Acura interior style. Bet Acura could have plagiarized the new Civic interior and Honda wouldn’t have minded.

The fact this isn’t the biggest car review channel on YouTube shows the state of our society. So many people just watch these goofs read off the window sticker and edit a video with a lot of cuts while yelling, instead of a thorough expert analysis. Keep it up Geese

For the price I'd take a Kia fully loaded all day long. I'll pass. I'd rather a fully loaded accord. Acura does nothing for me.

Great review! After watching now wish Acura would make a Type R version. For 53k I expected better from the transmission over my 2.0 Accord Sport. The shifting characteristics mentioned here is similar to what I experience with the 2.0 Accord. Very short 1st gear and sport mode drives better in full auto.

I test dove this cause I need to find a new car to replace my Accord V6 6 speed Coupe. But the most important part of the car, the transmission, just doesn’t work. There is no manual mode, so even when you’re using the paddles the car shifts how it wants. You can’t just hold a gear and listen to the exhaust sound. If you’re not accelerating then the trans will just upshift. I can understand if it auto shifts at redline, but why is it shifting at 3k rpm when I’m cruising and want to hear the engine and exhaust sound? What’s the point of the paddles if there’s no manual mode?

Points well made. But, sub 5% of the owners will notice what was mentioned regarding redline and first gear shifting. What it will give you is a powerful, fun and well built Acura that will last a long time.

Frankly it's a disappointment, it looks great but it's slow for what it is as quick as the Honda Accord is I was really expecting alot more from this type s . For the price it's not bad because it's really priced against the base versions of the best in class but it's no match for the S4, M340i, or C43AMG

I am all for this car. I have a CRX that runs 11s so I do not need a car sedan that runs 12s. I have a Supra too. But i want a 4 door that runs well is comfortable one that will last and will be reliable. That little 25 percent that your talking about Dude I tell you in time those guys that tuned my CRX will find the ways to get this car to boost lower and to rocket out of launch mode. They want the car to last a long time. They do not want you to jack the transmission. Why do you think those Shit N Ws run so well but do not last very long. They cant hold together well. This car gives you plenty without worrying about breaking parts. What more can you ask for.

“It has such an good road presence.” It literally has zero road presence. Just blends in. Styling isn’t great, proportions are wrong and they’re too big and heavy. So far it’s the slowest in the segment. Hard pass.

Id never cross shop this with something like the stinger and m340i due to it being fwd based even though it seems like a good car. The stereo frequency response is ok. I dont like that massive peak around 18khz but most people who buy this car dont hear that high anyway. The gti you just tested had one of the best frequency response graphs Ive seen, better than some studio monitors.

I know if it’s two quite different car but if you were to choose between the Acura TLX Type S vs a one year old used Mercedes E450 that both costs the same price, will you pick one over the other. I like both but i still think the E450 better built and quieter. Please give me a 2 cents for my decision.

I simply refuse to spend my hard earned scratch on any vehicle that has cylinder deactivation. This includes the new 5.0 liter V8 in the Ford F-150, or any other GM product, including Corvette and Camaro. Fortunately, the Ford Mustang GT 5.0 V8 has not yet be ruined, I believe. Once the eco-nannies get their hands on the Ecoboost V6 or the Cadillac V6s, I guess it will all be over. Maybe the Honda faithful have no problem with counter-engineering. Many truck buyers are moving to the well engineered 6 cylinder diesel engines in the 150 - 1500 series instead of ruined V8s.

I just can't get excited about this car with its 4200 lb weight and 60/40 balance split front to rear. Yes, they make this pig dance with the suspension and SH-AWD but It still needs to shed 3-400 lbs, combine in the Advance trim equipment (HUD etc), improve the tranny , and then maybe. I mean come on, the M340i weighs nearly 600 lbs less!!! Sigh, I so wanted something exciting from Acura but my wait continues.
