Due to their popularity, you have likely come across the Acura TLX vs. Honda Accord when you shop for a new sedan. Although both vehicles have their merits, you can only choose one. So, which sedan will improve your Hartford commute? Acura of Avon has compared Acura TLX vs. Honda Accord to help you make an informed decision. We’re pretty certain that you will find the TLX to be the better buy for your hard-earned dollar. See how the two stack up before taking a test drive at our Canton dealership.

Interior Design and Features

In the TLX base model, you will find a plethora of standard features that outshine what is available in the base configuration of the Honda Accord. This includes plush seating and innovative tech features. Listed below are just a few of the standard features found on the 2020 Acura TLX that do not come standard if you select the Honda Accord.

  • Driver and front passenger heated-cushion, heated-seatback front seats
  • Leather steering wheel
  • 7-speaker sound system (4 speakers on the Honda Accord)
  • Driver lumbar support
  • Leatherette seats

Compare Engine Specs

When it comes to performance specs, the Acura TLX once again bests the Honda Accord in several key areas. Learn more about the engine offerings and performance features found on both of these competitors.

  • Standard Engines: The Acura TLX is equipped with a 2.4L I-4 engine that generates 206 hp, which provides more power than the Honda Accord. The Accord is outfitted with a less remarkable 1.5L Intercooled turbo I-4 engine capable of producing just 192 hp.
  • Available Engines: Both the TLX and the Accord give drivers the option of a V6 engine, but the TLX V6 engine delivers 290 hp, while the Accord V6 engine falls a bit short by providing 252 hp.
  • Standard Performance Features: The Acura TLX comes standard with Precision All-Wheel Steer™ technology as well as Vehicle Stability Assist™ with Traction Control and Motion Adaptive Steering. These are features not found on the Honda Accord.
  • Upgraded Performance Features: When you opt for the V6 TLX, you have the option of Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive™. There is no comparable system if you choose to drive the Accord.

Compare Warranty and Acura Reliability

One of the most important things to consider when choosing a new vehicle is warranty coverage. This is another reason why so many Manchester drivers choose the TLX. It comes with a 4-year/50,000-mile basic warranty, as well as a 6-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty. There is less warranty coverage with the Honda Accord, which gives drivers a 3-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and a 5-year or 60,000-mile powertrain warranty.

TLX vs. Accord: Which is the Best Choice for You?

More luxury features, more powerful engine options, and better warranty coverage make the TLX the ideal choice for drivers in the Canton area.
