Whether you’ve come into money, you’ve finally leveled up and gotten that long-overdue promotion, or you’re simply looking to splurge because you deserve it, if you find yourself here, chances are you’re considering purchasing or leasing an Acura TLX, but wondering if upgrading to a luxury vehicle is worth the cost. Many people in a similar situation cross-shop the Acura TLX against not luxury competitors like the Lexus ES 350 or INFINITI Q50, but rather, the humbler and more mainstream Honda Accord. So, which vehicle will reign supreme for your needs? Read on to find out, or contact us at Southern Motors Acura for additional information.

When you compare the Honda Accord and Acura TLX with regard to interior features, you’ll no doubt notice that the Acura TLX has a more opulent interior. In fact, the Acura TLX offers one base “trim” level to which you can add packages for additional features. The Honda Accord, on the other hand, offers a more traditional assortment of trim levels. The Acura TLX is a true luxury sedan with niceties like heated front seats and premium sound coming with the Acura TLX Package. See below for more details:

TLX vs. Accord: Power

If, when deciding between the TLX or Accord in Richmond Hill, performance is an important consideration, then you’ll be happy to hear that the Acura TLX has around an 80-hp advantage vs. the Honda Accord for the 2022 model year.

What’s more, with the Acura TLX, you have the option of upgrading to an Acura SH-AWD system. You can also upgrade to an Acura TLX Type S for extra performance. The Honda Accord, meanwhile, comes in an available hybrid configuration, though it doesn’t offer AWD. Here’s more information on the TLX vs. Accord with regard to power:

Acura TLX FWD specs

  • 2.0L VTEC® Turbo engine
  • 10-speed automatic transmission

  • Available Super-Handling AWD

Honda Accord 2WD specs

TLX vs. Accord: Warranty

Pooler drivers demand protection for their vehicles. That’s why the TLX proves to be the better choice thanks to its 4-year/50,000-mile Basic Warranty. Compare that to the Honda Accord, and you’ll note that it has a new vehicle limited warranty for just 3 years or 36,000 miles. Something similar can be said for the powertrain coverage between the TLX vs. Accord; the TLX has coverage for up to 6-years or 70,000-miles, and the Accord only comes with an available 5-year/60,000-mile Powertrain warranty.
