Acura is clearing up a couple nagging thoughts we had about the 2021 TLX Kind S today. The company’s newest announcement spells out both of those the beginning price and a specific on-sale date. 

You’ll be capable to drive a 2021 Acura TLX Kind S dwelling in May well this 12 months, and pricing begins “in the reduced $fifty,000s.” We would like Acura could be a little a lot more certain on exact pricing, but seemingly it is not ready to divulge that information still. Regardless, this price position makes great sense when you think about that the standard TLX with its two.-liter turbo can be optioned up to about $fifty,000.

It’s probably likely to come in below the BMW M340i’s price (begins at $fifty five,695). On the other hand, the Audi S4 will most probably undercut the Kind S with its $fifty,945 base price. Do keep in mind that both of those the BMW and Audi will probably need to have a hefty hand in the choices listing to equivalent the Acura’s devices, just as the non-performance models call for.

As a reminder, the TLX Kind S is having a three.-liter turbocharged V6 that spits out 355 horsepower and 354 pound-toes of torque to the typical SH-AWD procedure. The ten-velocity computerized is “sport-tuned,” and the motor vehicle has a new Sport+ driving manner that is not on the standard TLX that notches all the things up to yet another amount of aggressiveness. You can get NSX-impressed light-weight wheels that hide massive Brembo brakes and can be wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero summer tires. The Tiger Eye Pearl exterior paint pictured below is a Kind S-exceptional paint possibility, too.

We’ll be seeking forward to May well this 12 months, when we are going to last but not least get driving the wheel of the Kind S, which is the very first Kind S we have observed in The usa for 13 a long time.
