  • Acura TLX – MSRP from $32,000*

  • Audi A4 – MSRP from $34,900

Max Performance

Both of these luxury sedans offer plenty in terms of performance, with the Acura TLX and Audi A4 both giving you the option of all-wheel drive and your choice between two different engines. Still, if you’re looking for better peak performance, the new Acura TLX has the edge:

  • Acura TLX – If you opt for the Acura TLX with the 3.5L V6 engine, you’ll get a nine-speed automatic transmission and the option of torque-vectoring all-wheel drive. Output on this engine is a muscular 290 hp.

  • Audi A4 – The Audi A4’s most powerful engine is a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine that comes standard with a seven-speed automated manual transmission and only makes 252 hp.

Base Features

Both of these comfortable luxury sedans come with seating for up to five adult passengers, as well as features like power adjustable front seats, a rearview camera, 17-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth® connectivity, and cruise control. However, only the Acura TLX comes standard with heated front seats, satellite radio, keyless entry, push-button start, and ambient cabin lighting. Additionally, the Acura TLX comes standard with both an 8-inch display screen and a 7-inch touchscreen interface, while the Audi A4 only gets a 7-inch display screen as standard equipment. On top of all that, the Acura TLX has slightly more room in its trunk than the Audi A4, with measurements coming in at 13.2 cubic feet and 13.0 cubic feet, respectively.
