When you drive away in an Acura car, you’re not just getting luxury. You’re also behind the wheel of a car that offers impressive performance. Even more horsepower and performance tweaks were once offered by “Type-S” models, and now we’re proud to report that they’re making a comeback. The 2020 Acura TLX Type-S was just spotted testing.

The Acura brand initially announced plans to bring back some Type-S models back in January, at last year’s Detroit Auto Show. These models always offer a bit more power, suspension tweaks, and other upgrades that make driving even more fun. A new Acura car is hardly a slouch on the highway, but these Type-S vehicles push your favorite models even further.

The 2020 Acura TLX looks like it’ll be the first to get the Type-S treatment. This model was spotted on a track with some heavy camouflage, but we were still able to pick out a few details. The large-diameter wheels and low-profile tires stand out of course. It also looks like a lower suspension could be a part of the package. This prototype’s grille could also have an intercooler underneath it, indicating that a turbo engine is under the hood.

The Acura brand also announced that it was working on a new turbocharged V6 engine recently, so this car might just come equipped with that new equipment. Acura engineers plan to pair it to an advanced all-wheel drive system, so the Acura TLX Type-S should be able to handle just about anything. We can’t wait to learn more about this model and the other Acura Type-S vehicles that are in the works!
