Acura TLX vs Audi A4: Power and Acceleration

The 2020 TLX and 2020 A4 put their best foot forward in terms of performance. The two engines of the TLX are the base 2.4L inline-4, which delivers 206 horsepower, and an available 3.5L V6, which offers 290 horsepower.

The standard 2.0L 40 TFSI® engine of the A4 produces just 188 horsepower. You can also upgrade to the 2.0L 45 TFSI® engine. It produces 248 horsepower, giving the Acura TLX the upper hand when it comes to performance.

Both sedans come standard with front-wheel drive, but only the Acura TLX offers Precision All-Wheel Steer™ (P-AWS®). This system allows the rear wheels to turn independently. When taking on tight turns, they turn opposite the front wheels to improve maneuverability. At highway speeds, they angle with the front wheels to improve agility.

Exterior Features

As luxury vehicles, the Acura TLX and Audi A4 have several advanced features designed to make your drive more convenient and comfortable. They include a standard power moonroof for easy access to the sun and fresh air. You’ll also find heated side mirrors. They can melt snow and ice to keep your view clear!

Both sedans come standard with LED headlights, which last longer, shine brighter, and run more efficiently than traditional bulbs. They not only have the practical advantage of helping you see farther at night, but they will also help you stand out from the crowd when you arrive in either model.

The TLX and the A4 also come standard with dual exhaust outlets that help hold everyone’s attention when you leave. Only the TLX further accents its racetrack readiness with an available rear decklid spoiler.

The 2020 TLX and 2020 A4 score well on safety, each having earned a 2020 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the NHTSA.1 That will give you more peace of mind in either model, but the Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE™) body structure of the TLX may make you even more confident. It uses crumple zones and structural elements to better distribute collision force.

Both sedans can monitor your blind spots, so you can merge and change lanes safely. Plus, their available Rear Cross Traffic Monitors will make it easier to back out of tight parking spots.

Speaking of parking prowess, both the TLX and the A4 offer a surround view camera system that will make it easier to avoid obstacles. It can be coupled with the available front and rear parking sensors that will warn you when you get too close to one.
