2021 Acura TLX A-Spec SH-AWD
The thing that's interesting is that the 2021 TLX is actually faster than the 2020 TLX and 2010 TL off the line, particularly in normal mode. If you watch the video below, the 2021 jumps ahead of the 2020 for the entire run to 60 mph. Unfortunately for the 2021, the HP to weight ratio comes into play and both the 2020 and 2010 versions of the car are noticeably faster in the 1/4 mile. FWIW, another video by the same guy shows that the TLX smokes the vaunted Accord 2.0T off the line but gets reeled in after 5 or so seconds. In any real world situation that matters, the 2021 TLX performs as well as any other cars. So, the question that comes to mind for someone looking at the car is this: How often are you really racing someone in a 1/4 mile race with your car? Acura is betting that most TLX drivers aren't going to be lining up and running 1/4 mile races.I totally agree with your review. My 2010 TL, which I gave to my daughter is by far and overall better and faster than the 2021 TLX.
