With a thorough overhaul for the new model-year, the 2021 Acura TLX greatly impresses, with its sleek and athletic design, a new chassis, new turbocharged engine options, a refined and technologically sophisticated cabin, and a new Type S model. The 2021 Acura TLX also provides all-wheel drive capabilities with its Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) system.

The Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) system is a standard feature for the TLX Type S trim and an optional feature for the other TLX trims. Now on its 4th generation, the SH-AWD® system provides road-gripping traction and outstanding cornering performance. The SH-AWD® system can distribute up to 70% of the engine torque to the rear axle. For sharper turning, 100% of that rear axle torque can be distributed to either the right or left wheel.
