Everything You Need for a Nimble Ride

To keep your cruises lag-free and agile, the standard 10-speed automatic transmission packs wide gear ratios—delivering when you’re ready to take an aggressive corner or enjoy a ride at a relaxed pace. You can also take over the shifting at your personal pace with the standard shift-paddles behind the steering wheel, and experiment with different shift patterns to find which fit your ride best.

For enjoying rides any time of year, the available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD®) packs industry-leading torque vectoring to help you stay in full control on nearly all roads and surfaces you find. Even in the snow, you’ll enjoy an exhilarating ride with your 2021 TLX packing 40% more torque capacity and 30% faster front-to-rear torque transferring when compared to the last model year.

When you need to come to a stop, the NSX Electro Servo Brakes come directly from one of Acura’s most legendary models ever to help you almost-instantly stop or to slow down and prepare for an aggressive with track-inspired performance. You can also customize your ride with Comfort, Normal, Sport, and the first-ever Individual driving modes. Enter Individual, and you’ll tailor your driving experience to your style by taking the individual features you like most from the other three modes.

Engines Built for Legends

Bold performance comes standard with the 2021 Acura TLX’s 2.0L DOHC direct-injected turbocharged VTEC® motor. Step on the gas and feel the near-instant acceleration of 272 horsepower and 280 lb-ft torque. When you crave even more athleticism for your drives, the available and all-new 3.0L 24-Valve DOHC direct-injected motor will make your sedan one of Acura’s fastest models ever. In fact, the 3.0 engine was designed by the same team that works on Acura’s track-ready and supercar-tier vehicles’ motors, if that gives you an idea of what you can expect in terms of performance.

How AcuraWatch’s New Features Will Enhance Your Cruising

Safety comes standard in the form of AcuraWatch to blend with the swift rides in your 2021 Acura TLX. Features like the new Driver Awareness Monitor detects drowsiness and lets you know when to pull over and rest. For staying up to date on the speed limits and road conditions, Traffic Sign Recognition is also new for 2021, keeping guesswork out of your drives.

Cruising with Traffic Jam Assist

Upgrade your cruise control with Traffic Jam Assist. When you activate this feature, your Acura drives at a speed set by you while slowing down for traffic ahead. To outwork typical adaptive cruise control systems, the 2021 Acura TLX will even help you stay in your lane for true stress-free drives when you’re stuck on an interstate during rush hour, or those days you want to enjoy the ride home at a smooth pace.

A Premium Cabin Designed to Elevate Your Rides

Step inside the 2021 Acura TLX, and upscale surfaces like aluminum, open-pore wood, and leather accompany your drives for a visual treat. Meanwhile, relaxing and enjoying the ride feel easy with the standard 16-way adjustable sport seats in the front. For sporty vibes, a standard leather-wrapped steering wheel with an available flat-bottom with contrast stitching will have you gripping at “10 and 2” the entire ride without complaints.

The Look of Full Athleticism Inside

For your interior styling, you’ll have your choice between seven colors. On base models, you’ll get a choice from rustic Ebony, a smooth Espresso, a sleek Graystone, and a laidback Parchment. Upgrade to the TLX A-Spec, and you’ll ride with your choice between Red or Ebony Leather—both with Ultrasuede® inserts for purely athletic and track-themed spirit.
