Acura TLX vs Audi A4: Outperformance by Design
2018 Acura TLX Sedan
2017 Audi A4 2.0T Sedan
A car should never make you choose between power or handling. The TLX comes standard with Precision All-Wheel Steer™, Agile Handling Assist® to aid in cornering, and an 8-speed Dual Clutch automatic transmission plus torque converter. Meanwhile, the A4 sits content with its 7-speed DCT, requiring a turbocharger to generate power. The larger displacement engine of the TLX does not require turbo power, and still boasts 206 horsepower.
Available on TLX V6, the dramatic new A-SPEC ensures that TLX looks just as powerful as what’s under its hood. Performance-driven cues from the Acura NSX elevate the impact of A-SPEC: eye-catching features include round exposed dual exhaust outlets, new front lower intakes with round LED fog lights and dark chrome finish trim, and piano-black rear decklid spoiler.
