A Legacy Of Performance Continues

Like the fastest line around a track, every turn setting up the next, the momentum of our future comes from the speed of our past. From legends like the TL and RSX Type S models, Precision Crafted Performance has always been our pursuit. Fueled by that heritage, the Type S returns in its most powerful incarnation, ready to conquer new roads. And now, the MDX makes history as the first Acura SUV with a Type S performance variant.

Sport Cabin

The Type S is as refined and driver-focused as ever. With Ultrasuede®-trimmed seats and the flat-bottom sport steering wheel, the interior feels athletic and purpose-built. Select the Orchid leather, exclusive to the Type S, to create a boutique feeling interior that indulges the senses beyond what performance can do alone.

Aerodynamics

The Type S is designed to direct airflow to maximize performance. The lower front splitter helps generate downforce for more traction while the Open Surface Diamond Pentagon Grille feeds air into the powerful turbo V6. The rear spoiler and lower diffuser work together to smooth airflow and reduce lift. Sculpted for speed, the TLX Type S demands to be driven.
