With the coronavirus outbreak postponing the 2020 New York Auto for the first time since WWII, we may have missed our chance to catch a first glimpse of the second-generation TLX.
On what would have been a media day at the 2020 NYIAS, today, Car and Driver has revealed a few details on the 2021 TLX:
“We expect the standard 2021 TLX will go on sale this summer with a base price in the mid-$30,000 range, followed by the exciting high-performance Type S variant early next year.
Underpinning the new model will be an all-new unibody designed exclusively for the TLX that ditches struts for a control-arm front suspension to improve handling and feel. The standard TLX powertrain will borrow the 10-speed automatic transmission and turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four from the current-generation Honda Accord but adds optional all-wheel drive. The Type S will bring some potency to the mix with a new turbocharged V-6, likely displacing 3.0 liters, that will provide a massive bump in power over the outgoing 3.5-liter V-6’s 290 horses.” – Car and Driver
With no official word from Acura, it’s safe to assume all dates have been pushed back indefinitely.
