The Type S badge represents the highest level of performance and design in the Acura lineup, combining power, precision and style. Inspired by the heritage of legendary models such as the TL and RSX Type S, the 2023 models of this division offer a bold, state-of-the-art driving experience. Available in 3 models, the MDX Type S SUV, the TLX Type S sedan, the Integra Type S that will debut this summer and the upcoming ZDX Type S electric, you’ll find the vehicle that’s right for you.
An SUV that goes further
The MDX makes history as the first Acura SUV with a Type S performance variant. It’s powered by a 3.0L turbocharged V6 engine that delivers 355 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque through an All-Wheel Drive system that gives you better control of the road. The MDX Type S also features an adaptive air suspension that adjusts ride height and comfort to suit your driving needs. The exterior design is bold and refined, with Type S-exclusive details like a gloss black grille, quad tailpipes and 21-inch wheels. The interior is spacious and luxurious, with Ultrasuede-trimmed seats, a flat-bottom sport steering wheel and an ELS STUDIO 3D Signature Edition premium audio system. It’s safe to say that the MDX Type S is no ordinary SUV!
The balance between power and precision
The TLX Type S is the most powerful and capable TLX ever built. It’s powered by a 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 engine that can develop up to 355 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. The TLX Type S also features a sport-tuned adaptive damping system and high-performance chassis braces for enhanced handling and stability. Braking performance is enhanced by large Brembo front brake callipers combined with oversized rotors, while lightweight Y-spoke wheels reduce unsprung weight for improved agility. The sporty interior is refined and driver-focused, with a flat-bottom sport steering wheel and carbon fibre accents. This sedan will get your heart racing!
The Integra Type S: Coming Soon
The Integra is back! After more than two decades since its last generation in North America, the iconic brand is back in the form of an all-new compact, high-end sports coupe. Very few details have been released about this model, but its 320 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque give a good taste of it! With its high-end features, elegant yet sporty design and 2.0-liter VTEC turbo engine, the Integra Type S is sure to provide a thrilling experience. However, we’ll have to wait until this summer to see what other great surprises this car has in store for us.
The future of performance
The NSX Type S is the most powerful production NSX ever created. It features a hybrid powertrain that combines a twin-turbocharged V6 engine with three electric motors for a total output of 600 horsepower. Inspired by Acura’s motorsport experience, the car’s aerodynamic design is both impressive and powerful. If you want the driving pleasure of the NSX Type S while doing your part for the environment, the Acura ZDX Type S, which will arrive in 2024, is for you! Designed with the same performance criteria as all other Type S models, it draws its strength from electricity. Its power will surprise you!
