  • Integrated Dynamics System (IDS) with exclusive Sport+ mode
  • Ultra-rigid chassis
  • Double wishbone front suspension
  • Adaptive damper system
  • Front splitter, rear diffuser, and decklid spoiler
  • Quad exhaust outlets
  • 20-inch wheels with performance tires

Acura TLX Type S: Interior and Design Features

The Acura TLX Type S interior also highlights the vehicle’s athleticism with exclusive features not found elsewhere in the TLX lineup. This model was designed with the track in mind, drawing inspiration from the NSX sports car and beyond. From leather-wrapped, flat-bottom sport steering wheel to Ultrasuede®-trim seats to Type S badging, the cabin combines form and function with flair. Plus, Hendersonville drivers can explore options like the Light Orchid interior to complement eye-catching exterior colors like Apex Blue Pearl and Tiger Eye Pearl.
