Acura TLX V6 vs Infiniti Q50 Performance: Outperformance by Design


2017 Acura TLX V6 Sedan

9 Speed Automatic
with P-AWS®

2017 Infiniti Q50 Sedan

7 Speed Automatic

Sport performance is a tall task. While TLX and Q50 may appear evenly matched, a closer look reveals the competitive similarities to be a mirage. The TLX comes standard with Precision All-Wheel Steer™, Agile Handling Assist® to aid in cornering, and a 9-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters plus torque converter, something lacking on the Infiniti Q50 sedan. And even with greater performance, the TLX has better fuel economy ratings4 too, meaning you really can have it all.

And for those who desire even more control, the TLX V6 is available with Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®).

2017 Acura TLX engine components background

SH-AWD is, as always, astonishingly good at putting power to the ground and assisting in corners, and remains one of the best AWD systems on the market.

Road & Track, August 5, 2015

2017 Acura TLX engine components background

Attractively stylish, impeccable and thoughtfully detailed, loaded with useful technology, beautifully finished, the exquisite 2016 Acura TLX will be wonderful for buyers but perhaps not so amusing for the competition.
