Discover the differences that distinguish the new Acura TLX from its competitors

Browse around the greater Centerville and Dayton, OH areas these days, and you'll find a wealth of new luxury midsize sedans to choose from. But despite the fact that most all boast stylish appointments and refined interiors, just beneath the surface there's a fierce competition raging in the midsize luxury sedan market. And few models are more centrally involved in that struggle than the new new Acura TLX for sale here at Superior Acura of Dayton.

Now, this new luxury Acura midsize sedan has long been one of the most enviable models in the new Acura lineup here at our dealership near Austin Landing and West Chester, OH, but it's not without close rivals. In fact, two German rivals have been vying for its market position for quite some time now, namely the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series.

Of course, we don't like to boast, but here at Superior Acura of Dayton, we think that our new Acura TLX handily bests these contenders, and we'd love the chance to prove it to you. That's why we've prepared a competitive breakdown to show you how the new Acura TLX distinguishes itself in terms of performance, technical sophistication, and design.

Acura TLX vs. the Audi A4

  • On the performance front, the new Audi A4 is just no match for the new Acura TLX. With only 188 horsepower standard, the Audi A4 is left in the dust by the new Acura TLX, which produces up to 206 horsepower standard with its 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder engine.
  • The Audi A4 comes standard with a conventional front-wheel drive system, while the new Acura TLX offers an innovative standard Precision All-Wheel Steer® system which provides greater stability and cornering agility than its rival.
  • Looking for something truly unique and exclusive out of your next car? Opt for the available Acura TLX Performance Edition at our dealership near Kettering, OH, and you can take the wheel of a vehicle assembled by the technicians behind the unrivaled Acura NSX supercar, complete with distinctive unique 19-inch wheels and an exclusive Valencia Red Pearl paint scheme. Unfortunately, there's no comparable special edition trim for the Audi A4.
  • Finally, if you're looking for the most tech-savvy vehicle, the TLX is your car! The new AcuraWatch™ safety suite in this car is exceptional when it comes to providing the peace of mind that Dayton drivers crave.

Acura TLX vs. the BMW 3 Series

  • The new BMW 3 Series is a stronger competitor than the new Audi A4, but still isn't a match for the Acura TLX. A properly equipped BMW 3 Series boasts up to 255 horsepower, but it's nothing compared to the 290 horsepower produced by the 3.5-liter i-VTEC V6 engine available with the new Acura TLX. Plus with standard Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters on the new Acura TLX, you can take direct control of your driving experience with this sporty midsize luxury sedan and really get more out of your time on the roads of Oakwood, OH.
  • On the connectivity technology front, the new Acura TLX comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, while the new BMW 3 Series only includes Apple CarPlay as an option, and it's a subscription-based service.
  • While the new BMW 3 Series features forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and lane departure warning as part of its standard safety suite, it's not as comprehensive as the AcuraWatch™ suite on the new Acura TLX. Including amenities like lane departure warning and intervention, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high-beam control.
