The 2018 Acura TLX is a midsize luxury sedan, slotting above the compact Acura ILX and below the full-size RLX in the brand’s sedan lineup. Pricing starts at an MSRP of $33,000. Top competitors include the Infiniti Q50, BMW 3 Series, and Volvo S60.
Pros: Smooth & Powerful V-6 Engine Option, Roomier Than Competitors, Available AWD
Cons: Somewhat Generic Interior & Exterior Styling
Summary: A solid entry, the Acura TLX offers more space and usability than some of its competitors, and an available V-6 and AWD at a much lower price point than some competitors.
What You Should Know: The Infiniti Q50 is the TLX’s closest competition in terms of price, size and features. Both are great cars, so it may be a matter of which design you prefer if deciding between the two. If a powerful V-6 and sportiness isn’t important, the 4-cylinder 2018 Honda Accord Touring has many of the luxury features and has more room inside.
