Get Ready for the
2021 Acura TLX

at Acura of Honolulu

It seems like with each passing year Acura models get a little more aggressive - both inside and out you'll find improved performance, more sporty looks, and upgraded interior features to help make your driving experience better than ever. The 2021 Acura TLX is slated to appear later this year, and so far it looks like a truly exciting prospect.

Updated Acura TLX Styling

While you could never call the current Acura TLX stodgy, it pales in comparison to what the 2021 model is expected to look like. The long hood and short tail configuration makes the new Acura TLX look distinctly sporty, while the black honeycomb grille arches across the nose, trimmed in stunning chrome. Angular LED headlights now sweep back toward the wheel arches to press the arrow-like design, while the curves and contours of the front air dam and splitter area look like they came straight from the world of racing.

A widened stance with aggressively flared wheel arches give the 2021 Acura TLX a track-ready appearance, and available exterior touches such as a rear lip spoiler and flat-plane front splitter add even more aggression.

Exhilarating Performance

The 2021 Acura TLX promises to do much more than just look good. A 272-horsepower VTEC® turbocharged engine sits under the hood and pushes power through a revolutionary all-wheel drive system. Meanwhile, a double-wishbone front suspension and electronically-controlled braking system enhance performance both while cornering and under brakes.

The Return of a Legend

Finally, the Type-S badge returns to the American market in the form of the TLX Type-S. A 3.0-liter V6 engine replaces the standard kit, along with upgraded brakes and a sport-tuned suspension to enhance all aspects of performance.
