2019 Acura TLX vs. 2019 Audi A4

The savvy drivers of the St. Clair Shores region know how to spot a great value, and more and more of our neighbors are pitting the well-priced 2019 Acura TLX against the 2019 Audi A4. Although the A4 might look good on paper, the TLX standard features and performance specs ensure that you’ll find more to love if you choose the Acura over the Audi. Take a closer look at the Acura TLX vs. Audi A4 to find out exactly what we mean.

Performance: Acura TLX or Audi A4?

German engineering has a great reputation, but when it comes to performance, the Audi A4 can’t quite match the Acura TLX specs. Here are just a few of the ways that the TLX comes out ahead:

  • The TLX comes standard with an 8-speed automatic dual-clutch transmission, and it’s also available with a 9-speed. The A4 is only available with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.
  • The TLX base engine offers 206 hp, compared to 188 hp with the smaller, turbocharged base engine in the A4. The A4 offers more torque, but standard Precision All-Wheel Steer™ in the TLX ensures superior control on Sterling Heights roads. Both models offer an available AWD system.
  • A V6 engine is available as an upgrade even in the low-end Acura TLX trims. You’ll have to upgrade to the Premium Plus quattro A4 trim, paying upwards of $50,000, to get a V6 in the Audi.
  • The TLX comes standard with an Integrated Dynamics System, which lets you alternate between several different driving modes with the press of a button. No comparable feature is available in the A4.

Features and Amenities: A4 vs. TLX

At $37,400 MSRP, the 2019 Audi A4 starts out at almost $4,000 more expensive than the 2019 Acura TLX, priced at $33,000*. However, despite the Audi model’s higher price tag, the Acura TLX offers superior standard technology features and driver protections:

  • The TLX offers a dual-screen driver interface and display in all trims. The baseline trim of the Audi A4 only includes a single screen display. The TLX also includes SiriusXM® radio and 12-volt power outlets right from the start.
  • In the TLX, you’re guaranteed a pleasant ride: conveniences like Active Sound Control come standard, and GPS-linked climate control becomes available as you upgrade! Both are completely unavailable in the A4. Additionally, Smart Entry with Keyless Access is standard in the TLX, but costs extra in the Audi.
  • Acura has included more advanced driver assistance features on their sedan! Although both feature collision mitigation braking with a forward collision warning, only the TLX includes Adaptive Cruise Control, a Lane Keeping Assist System, and Road Departure Mitigation in every model.
  • The rearview camera in the TLX features multi-view technology and dynamic guidelines, starting. The rearview camera in the baseline A4 only offers a single view.
