Power and style: the 2021 Acura TLX
Elite performance is about more than just strength and speed — it’s about the full package. With a 272HP turbocharged 2.0L VTEC engine under the hood, 4th Generation SH-AWD, and an NSX-inspired electro-servo brake system, the 2021 Acura TLX is a luxury sedan built for those who strive to get the most out of every day. From its Diamond-Pentagon Grille to the 10.2” infotainment screen with True Touchpad Technology in its redesigned cockpit, however, it’s also designed to deliver just as much performance in its luxurious details. The 2021 TLX is powerful, of course, but it’s also powerfully refined.
Whether he’s helping clients achieve their personal best or taking care of business around the city, Mindful Method. founder and wellness coach Mike Levine needs a vehicle that’s as performance-driven as he is. That’s why we asked him to take the new 2021 Acura TLX for a spin through his daily routine. Here’s what happened.
“My day begins in the brand new Mindful Method. studio in downtown Toronto with some stretching and mobility work, followed by a full-body strength and conditioning dumbbell workout. While I love riding my bike around the city, the 2021 TLX helps me get into the performance mindset as soon as I see it in the garage. It definitely has an edge to it — luxury and sporty at the same time — and its aggressive stance gets me amped to be behind the wheel. After making some calls, I keep my day going by meeting clients virtually, running errands, and sending emails. The driver-focused design of the TLX makes it easy to focus on whatever the day requires, whether it’s checking in with clients on the go or listening to a podcast. The sound system in the TLX is amazing, the touchpad and display screen controls are easy to navigate, and I love how easy it is to put on my favourite tunes from my smartphone. This kind of intuitive design helps me to focus on what matters most, whether it’s my health, my business, or my family.”
“As I work to grow Mindful Method. my days are about much more than just helping my clients reach their wellness goals. Networking, business strategy, and administration are all part of my normal workday, so after my morning workout session I head out into the city, dressed for business in my super comfortable stretch suit by Garrison Bespoke. I love the versatility of the 2021 TLX, which looks just as good with my workout gear as it does with my bespoke suits. It’s comfortable for getting around the downtown core, and a great size for navigating parking garages and squeezing into tight spots on the street. As someone who appreciates strength, agility, and speed, I also love having all of that power and performance on tap.”
“My evenings can involve everything from running errands to getting take-out on occasion. The TLX adds comfort and excitement to any outing thanks to its refined interior, superb handling, and powerful acceleration. Mindful Method. is all about getting my clients to reach their potential, both physically and mentally, and the 2021 Acura TLX is a great example of what can happen when you make peak performance the goal.”
