Here’s a look at the upcoming 2021 Acura TLX

On Thursday, May 28, Acura will debut the all-new second-generation 2021 TLX. They call it the “quickest, best handling and most well-appointed Acura sedan yet” which sounds pretty fantastic. The TLX was released for the 2015 model year and received a facelift for 2018. So a new model was definitely due, we’re excited to see what they come up with.

In the meantime, here is the teaser image they released.

However, I took the liberty of firing up Adobe Lightroom to clarify things a bit.

Details are limited so far, but it’s certainly got some attitude. I sense a bit of Alfa Romeo Giulia in the design, which is a good thing. It will also be the first to feature Acura’s new dedicated 3.0-liter V6 Turbo engine. For context, last August, Acura unveiled the Acura Type S concept. You can definitely see some family resemblance from the rear. Hopefully, the rest of the new TLX looks similar.

We’ll keep you posted on things as they are unveiled!

    Has anyone at Acura ever looked at an attractive car or are they hatched in some kind of self-isolated Gran Turismo meets Playmobil incubator?

    I hate the look of rear diffusers on street cars.

      I dig it. It’s a little drama, a little theater, something interesting beyond the ordinary. I heard myself type that in James May’s voice, your results may differ.

          I’ve been re-watching The Grand Tour while on lockdown. It’s better than I remembered.
