The Acura TLX is all-new for 2021, marking the second generation of this sedan by Honda’s luxury division. As before, the TLX blurs lines in terms of size, being larger than premium compact sedans like the Audi A4, Lexus IS, and BMW 3 Series, and closer to a midsize executive sedan like the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
Everything else about the 2021 Acura TLX has been improved. Starting with its heart, the new TLX has replaced its former base 4-cylinder and optional V6 with a potent turbocharged 2.0-liter engine. Handling and performance have been markedly improved, especially if you opt for Acura’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system.
