The Heritage of Type S, Reborn

The TLX Type S is the pinnacle of Precision Crafted Performance.

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.

Power and Precision In Balance

The Type S is the most powerful and capable it’s ever been. A 3.0L Turbo V6 that pumps out a potent 355-HP126 through the exclusive quad exhaust outlets for a new league of performance. 354 lb-ft127 of torque transfers to the pavement by the rear-biased Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD®). A sport-tuned Adaptive Damper System and high-performance chassis bracing means all that power can be driven with radical precision.

Available NSX-inspired lightweight Y-spoke wheels wrapped in high-performance Pirelli summer tires reduce unsprung weight at all four corners, for a drive that feels precision crafted down to the ounce.

The Type S is designed to direct airflow for maximized 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.
