It also doesn't help that the market has swung significantly toward crossovers.

While it's primarily form and not so much function that Acura has focused on here, the Type S Concept doesn't completely put engineering aside. Not only does the auto give us a pretty darn good idea of what to expect from future Acura models, it also previews the return of the Type S trim, which is good news for those hoping that Acura would get its performance lineup back in order - aside from the NSX, natch. Just a concept now, Acura promises that performance products, starting with the second-get TLX, are coming.

"The return of Type S is instrumental in our mission to return Acura to its performance roots", Jon Ikeda, vice president and Acura brand officer, said in a statement.

The face also has what the brand calls its next-generation LED headlights with "chicane"-shaped daytime running lights (we think they look like stylized check marks) inspired by the Acura ARX-05 Daytona Prototype race auto".

The side profile is clean and continues the sporty theme.

What you see here is a pretty strong preview of what the upcoming TLX Type S will look like.

Acura shods them in a 285-series summer tyre setup, and then throws on drilled Brembo high-performance brakes.

Elsewhere, forged carbon has been applied to the front and rear splitters, side sills, rear decklid spoiler, and wheels, and the concept is finished in a bespoke Double Apex Blue Pearl paint as a homage to blue Type S heritage models including the 2007-2008 TL Type S. The 21-inch multi-spoke wheels are also made of the same material. That uses nano pigments and a color-infused clear coat, the automaker says, for more luster and brilliance.

Acura has always punched above its weight when it embraces its own unique Japanese heritage and runs with it, and so consider us already charmed by the Acura Type S Concept auto it has pulled the wraps off today.
