Acura TLX vs the Competition


Compare the Acura TLX to Competitors at Hooman Acura of Santa Monica

The Acura TLX offers a seamless blend of comfort, style, performance, and reliability that sets it apart from its rivals.

With a robust list of standard tech features, peppy performance, and spectacular driving dynamics, the Acura TLX pressures rivals like the Audi A4 and Lexus ES.

So, how does that Acura TLX stack up to the competition? Dive into our Acura TLX comparison to find out more!

vs. Audi A4


The Acura TLX boasts a variety of exterior features that enhance not only its looks but also its visibility. The Acura TLX comes standard with Jewel Eye headlights that light the way with five LED elements, providing more illumination and helping to boost your confidence on the road. The Audi A4 comes with conventional headlights, which lack the sharpness that LEDs provide.

The Acura TLX also makes a statement with a bold pentagonal grille that stands out next to the Audi A4, which has gone largely unchanged in recent years.


The Acura TLX offers sculpted front sport seats and supplies ten-way power adjustability for the driver's seat, granting greater customization and comfort during trips around Playa Vista. The Audi A4 falls short, offering only eight-way power adjustability.

You'll also find that other interior features such as the infotainment display are easier to manage in the Acura TLX. The Acura TLX's dual display allows you to maintain your view of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto while you adjust audio or climate settings. The Audi A4 has only a single-view display, meaning you're limited to managing one function at a time.


Standard features such as Precision All-Wheel Steer and Agile Handling Assist work to give the Acura TLX a nimbler, more engaging ride. The Acura TLX also offers more horsepower than the Audi A4, and it comes with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission while the Audi A4 comes with a seven-speed automatic transmission.


The Acura TLX comes standard with a multi-view rear camera that gives you a better view of what is happening behind your vehicle when you are in reverse. The Audi A4 requires upgrades to get a similar feature. The Acura TLX also boasts higher safety ratings from the NHTSA and offers more standard driver-assist features such as a Lane Keeping Assist System and Adaptive Cruise Control.

vs. Lexus ES


If you're looking for a luxurious car that can easily navigate busy streets around Culver City, you might find the Acura TLX easier to manage. The Lexus ES is several inches longer than the Acura TLX in both wheelbase and overall length, which can make it a little more unwieldy. The Acura TLX also offers a more striking, geometric grille design, making it easy to spot in a crowd.


One of the most striking differences that you might notice between these two competitors is the infotainment system.

The Acura TLX seeks to provide easy access to your favorite features while minimizing distraction. With a standard dual-screen display, you can take command of settings like climate and audio on one screen and still have access to other features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto without cycling through numerous menus.

The Lexus ES infotainment display offers only a single screen and, due to its complicated interface, is not particularly intuitive. The touchscreen is somewhat cumbersome, which can lead to distraction.
