2022 Acura TLX vs. Its Competition

2022 Acura TLX
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Coming in with a price well below conventional mid-size luxury rivals, the TLX may be worth comparing to cars like the BMW 3-Series and its 5-Series sibling.

Be sure to shop the German competition, but be prepared to shell out big bucks for an Audi A6, Mercedes E-Class, or BMW 5-Series.

Cadillac’s CT5 is priced more in line with the TLX.

While it’s not quite as nice inside, its interface is generally a step above and it offers its own take on luxurious style.

The Volvo S60 comes across as sedate by comparison, though in T8 form it can be a ripper.
