Acura Type S concept previews second-generation TLX Type S

Two Type S production cars will debut in the next two years.

Acura has revealed the Type S concept ahead of its official premiere tomorrow for Monterey Car Week.

The concept showcases the company's vision for a modern high-performance package, reintroducing the venerable Type S sub-brand after a decade-long hiatus.

Taking inspiration from the latest NSX, the sporty four-door concept features more aggressive styling than Acura's current sedans. The car is characterized by a wide track and low stance, with a long hood that stretches back to the A-pillars.

Aside from the fresh styling, the sedan also features forged carbon exterior elements, 21-inch wheels, Brembo brakes, and 285-width summer tires.

The second-generation TLX, due to arrive next year, will be the first car to get the Type S treatment. The automaker promises the production car will be heavily influenced by the concept. Potential buyers will presumably be waiting to see if the new TLX Type S follows the badge's original format with more power to complement the aesthetic enhancements.

The 2021 TLX Type S will be one of two production cars to debut with the performance badge in the next two years.
