Yes. CAD 3510 more equally equipped and if you go for the Sport it's even more and I am not talking about the 400hp Red Sport, just the regular Q50 AWD Sport that gives you a bunch of performance upgrades.Not surprised, isn't the Q50 much more expensive? Like around $50K MSRP?
Yes. CAD 9020 more than the TLX equally equipped and is still a 4 cylinder 252hp car which means it's down on power and you don't get the smoothness of a V6.The 2017 A4 is awesome, but would have cost me at least $10k more than the TLX.
Funny you mention this because I test drove it yesterday and it's a very nice car. The best 4 cylinder car out there, period. Very smooth and linear acceleration and very planted on the road. It's an excellent car but not for someone who has drive the V6 TLX SH-AWD. Even though it's peppy but not as powerful as the TLX's 290hp V6 engine. Comparing a 4 cylinder with a V6 is unfair but at this price they are comparable. That's how much of a bargain the TLX is. Plus we get the power of a V6 with the fuel economy of a 4 cylinder.
The A4 has a beautiful exterior and interior which is far superior to the TLX but the driving experience is better in the TLX and then there's the price which simply can't be beaten.
He asked me what I drove and I pointed towards my car as leaving the lot and he said it's funny that it looks like a Lexus/BMW. I didn't respond to that.
He asked me to gun the car and didn't get the response he was expecting. It was pretty good but I am used to driving a more powerful car so I wasn't blown away.
He then asked me to push it around the corner and though it handled nicely it wasn't as flat as the SH-AWD.
And I told him all that and left.
The more I test drive other cars, the more I appreciate my TLX and it makes me sad how underrated this car is.
Can't wait until this time next year to see the TLX with the Diamond Pentagon Grill and hopefully at Sport Hybrid at which point I will trade mine in for that >
Honda/Acura aren't any different. Just today I saw a Honda Odyssey and the tail lights reminded me of the MDX, and the infotainment system in the Honda's that don't have the Android Auto/Apple Car Play is practically identical to the one in Acuras.Totally the contrary for me, at least in the design. Hated the Q50's one, typical Nissan
Sit in a pilot and you will see the electronic gear selector right out of the MDX.
G35/37 looked awfully similar to the Altima but the Q50 doesn't look like any Nissan products. The tail lights however remind me of the previous gen Sonata.
