Best sports sedans that are not German for 2022

Best sports sedans that are not German for 2022

Acura is back in shape and the TLX was the first salvo. The latest TLX arrived in 2021 and divided opinion within the Carbon dioxide offices about its handling. But opinions differ and I loved driving the TLX hard so expect to go from third person writing to first with all the clumsiness of a Lamborghini driver trying to show off in front of a crowd. If you like spirited riding, you’ll want the SH-AWD option checked to allow the drivetrain and chassis to communicate well. Its 272 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque won’t surprise you, but it’s enough. Combined with an excellently balanced chassis, the playful SH-AWD system, sharp and precise steering and a luxurious cabin, this makes for a fun and comfortable sports sedan.

The criticism at the office is that the TLX needs summer tires to be the car that Acura claims to be. It’s an honest opinion, but it depends on what you want, and with summer tires it would certainly provide more grip. It’s a real pleasure, however, to use the chassis balance to get the steering on the throttle and move the TLX to the brink of grip without having to reach higher speeds. It will absolutely slide around if you want it to, and the SH-AWD is eager to help you have fun. If you want something directly against BMW, go for the Type S.
