The Acura TLX is based upon the Honda Accord. It is a question worth asking, "What more do you get from the Acura TLX when compared to a fully loaded Honda Accord?"
First off let's look at the pricing. The 4-cylinder TLX is priced at $35,920 while the Accord EX-L V6 comes in at $33,090. That is a price difference of about $3,000.
The Honda Accord also gives you more power than the Acura TLX. The Accord runs on a 3.5-liter V6 that produces 278 hp. The TLX on the other hand has a 206 hp four-cylinder engine. That means that you will get 72 more hp from the Accord's engine. That also translates to the Accord going from o-60 mph a full second faster than the TLX.
The TLX does give drivers an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission which is in contrast to the Accord's conventional six-speed transmission. That gives the TLX a more crisp and sporty feel when driving. The TLX also has better handling and braking, and a quieter cabin than the Accord.
The two vehicles do share some features. Both have climate control, backup cameras, driver and passenger leather seats, as well as good infotainment and safety features. It does appear that the Accord's halogen lamps illuminate the road better than the TLX's LEDs, though some may care more about the look of the lights than their effectiveness.
Ultimately you will pay $3,000 more for the TLX and that will get you a few more speakers, one more year of warranty, and a slower engine that feels more sporty.
Did you consider the Honda Accord before you bought the TLX? Do you think the TLX is worth the extra $3,000?
