Acura Type S Concept


Acura is celebrating a new era of performance models with its Type S Concept. Last seen in 2008, this vehicle is melding the TLX midsize sedan with the NSX sports car. The result is a sedan that promises to have tons of power and style, among other things.

The car won’t be available until 2021. However, we can provide a brief look into what it’ll offer drivers like you in Egg Harbor, Atlantic City, and Vineland.

Acura Type S

Defining Type S

You may be wondering, first off, what Type S means. This terminology has been used in past models, such as the:

  • Acura 3.2CL (2001-2003)
  • Acura 3.2TL (2002-2003)
  • Acura RSX (2002-2006)
  • Acura TL (2007-2008)

In each of these vehicles, having that “Type S” badge meant an increase in horsepower, handling, and braking. This will continue with the new Acura Type S, as it’s set to have a new, exclusive turbocharged V6 engine that’s sure to give you all the oomph you crave on the road.

Rebirthing the Precision Crafted Performance

Acura has this mantra of a “Precision Crafted Performance.” It represents the brand’s dedication to excellence in both engineering and design. Plus, it shows how Acura continues to push the limits of vehicle capability, which will surely be shown in the new 2021 model.

In general, Acura has offered lots of groundbreaking performance technologies, such as:

  • Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™: This advanced AWD system seamlessly sends power to all four wheels based on driving conditions.
  • Precision All-Wheel Steer™: It’ll adjust the toe angles of each back wheel to help improve a car’s stability.
  • Variable Cylinder Management: For vehicles with V6 engines, this system shuts down three of the six cylinders when cruising on the highway. This results in a more fuel-efficient ride.

There’s no confirmation yet on which performance features will be found on the new Type S. However, there’s a good chance that one of the above will make its appearance.

Acura Type S Headlights

Sports-Car-Like Design

What we do have confirmation on is what the new Acura Type S will look like. It’ll have clean, muscular lines that show off its race car aesthetic. In the back, you’ll find quad exhaust outlets. Plus, the iconic Type S badge will be emblazoned onto the back of the sedan.

On the side, you’ll find 21-inch multi-spoke wheels paired with “square” 285-series tires. Those are sure to emphasize the Double Apex Blue Pearl paint that’ll shine with its electric hue.

Finally, you’ll have advanced lighting systems with this automobile. This new model introduces next-generation, 4-lamp Jewel Eye® LED headlights along with “Chicane” daytime running headlights and taillights. These lights will have a stunning appearance. More importantly, though, they’ll help you see and be seen better at night.
