2021 Acura TLX vs. Its Competition

2021 Acura TLX
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Acura TLX reaches high, and there are plenty of good contenders.

The BMW 5-Series was updated for 2021 and includes a long roster of available powertrains—not just high-performance ones, either.

Same goes for the Mercedes-Benz E Class, which now includes an off-road wagon.

The Cadillac CT5 is new and a little calmer, but a storm is coming for that.

The Audi A6 is a technophile’s dream, and its available as a hot wagon.

The Volvo S60 may be a wallflower here, but it’s sharp and clean inside.
