Still no news on the Type S price, other than "arrives next spring well-equipped in the low to mid $50,000s" in the release.

Tires are impressive. The 19's are 255/40 R19, and the 20's coming on the Type S are 255/35 R20. Pretty much the same tread width 8.4"/8.5" and rolling diameter for both. Personally, I think the 19s would be better (cheaper than 20s). But, as far as tires go, these are on the "wider" side of the scale.

Things that strike me as odd are the Advance pkg will have a heated steering wheel, HUD Display, also fogs and advance wiper stuff, the Type S won't. I would think the Type S would be like an Advance+ (bigger engine, sportier suspension/tuning, but loaded). Guess they're not planning on that, or it will be optional?

I have a feeling the Type S will be the "performance oriented" model, but you will be able to option all the other stuff.

Nope, big mistake on Acura's part. The Type-S has the same feature set as the A-Spec. You can't get the Advance Package features on it. Maybe in Canada, but not US. Not a good move on Acura's part for a $55,000 car.

I hate the way Acura does packages. There are way too many and they interact too much with the ability to combine interior and exterior colors.

The car already seems dead before it's even got here. I can't seem to find any sedans i like under $50k new. They all seem the same and almost all are auto trannys.

Buying used just never seemed viable at that price range (although the largest parts of depreciation have already happened) mostly because I worry about maintenance cost taking up the majority of money you saved. Just at 60k in my 2015 wrx and i need brakes, rotors, rear strut, spark plugs, fluid changes, etc

Welcome to my world, I was in the same car since 2006 - sporty wagons went away, sporty sedans went away; now the only options are some kind of grand touring sedan with a luxury badge, that carries too much weight and too few pedals. Don't get me wrong my Lexus is a nice place to be, it handles well, but it's like 3,600lbs with a V6, it's "quick" but it needs two more cylinders or to lose a bunch of weight to be "fast" and I'd prefer the latter. Worth noting I liked it better than the current STI though, and I have a bias against auto's, so there's that.

Sedans in general are boring unless it's a special car intentionally made for car guys like the STI/WRX (or go higher up the food chain M-series, RS, etc). So if I was in your shoes and want a MT sedan, I would either wait out for the next gen STI/WRX or just buy the current 2020 STI/WRX and start fresh with the latest improvements.

I'm sure you can pull most of the mod parts off your current WRX and use it on the new. The refresh STI's have some minor changes where I read about cat/axle backs not fitting or something. I would get bored of cars like the TLX/IS after the honeymoon period. I like the new shape of the 2021 IS350 though.. but I'll probably get bored of it so I am going to look at the RC-F.

I think the embargo is lifted on the 28th, so will know more then. Seeing some of the vids floating around, the interior looks nice, love the flat bottom wheel in the ASpec.

I just think the interior could have been just a tad simpler. And by that, I mean like the interior of a volvo or alfa giulia. I just love clean simple approaches to designs. Can't wait to hear the driving reviews.
