Acura just revealed the latest 2021 Acura TLX specs, and it’s not hard to see why driving enthusiasts across the country are so excited. It’s been described as “the quickest, best-handling and most well-appointed sedan in the brand’s 35-year history,” and we’re here to fill you in on everything you need to know.

2021 Acura TLX Design

The 2021 Acura TLX exterior is focused around power and athleticism. You’ll see the silhouette of the Acura Precision Concept mirrored here, and the vehicle’s low and wide stance combines with a long dash-to-axle ratio and wide hood to create something fresh and dramatic running from upright diamond pentagon grille to pronounced rear haunches. You can even opt for the A-Spec: Sport Package and Type S: High Performance Variant for added exterior drama.

The body itself is built on a new dedicated Acura sedan platform designed for high levels of performance. Double-wishbone front suspension will deliver more precise handling and cornering, and several features taken from the NSX include a driver selectable Adaptive Damper System and variable-ratio steering system.
