2020 Acura TLX vs. Its Competition

2020 Acura TLX PMC edition, 2019 New York International Auto Show

A bit larger than many of its popular competitors, the Acura TLX competes with some of the most popular sport luxury sedans in America.

Although the TLX offers all-wheel drive, its rivals from Germany are more fun to drive, and the C-Class, 3-Series and A4 also offer high-performance versions which will leave the TLX in their dust.

Mercedes has also given the C-Class a more interior space than the TLX and the A4 has a much easier to use infotainment system.

Like the Germans, the Infiniti Q50 is styled more dynamically than the TLX.

The newcomer to the class is the Genesis G70 bringing an aggressive look, a dynamic interior and stronger performance than the Acura.
