Acura TLX: Superior by Design

272 Horsepower4
10 Speed 

The Infiniti QX50 Sensory and the Acura TLX with Advance Package both offer impressive style and performance. But the completely reimagined 2021 TLX is clearly superior. Its VTEC® Turbo 2.0-liter engine boasts 272 horsepower4 and 280 lb-ft of torque5, giving you plenty of muscle when needed. Standard paddle shifters put control of all 10 gear ratios at your fingertips. And thanks to its double wishbone front suspension, ultra-rigid body structure, and a new electro-servo braking system—adapted from the NSX supercar—the new TLX is also the best handling Acura sedan yet.

Compared to the Infiniti Q50 Sensory, luxury comes standard on the TLX with Advance Package: ventilated front sport seats, heated rear seats, GPS-Linked Climate Control, and a power moonroof that can be opened and closed remotely are just some of the features that add comfort and convenience to your daily drive.

The Acura TLX is a 2021 Consumer Guide® Best Buy Award winner for the Premium Midsize Car class.18
2021 Acura TLX achieves the highest possible safety rating in every IIHS safety test.19

Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) 
CMBS helps alert drivers when a potential frontal impact is detected and can even apply the brakes to help avoid or reduce the collision impact.9
