2014 Acura RLX vs. 2014 Audi S4 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Acura RLX than the Audi S4. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Acura RLX and the Audi S4 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Acura RLX you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Audi S4, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Acura RLX or the Audi S4, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura RLX and the Audi S4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Acura RLX is much wider than the Audi S4, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Acura RLX, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Audi S4.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Acura RLX doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Audi S4.

Handling
The Acura RLX has a larger turning radius than the Audi S4, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Acura RLX has less horsepower than the Audi S4, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura RLX and the Audi S4. The Acura RLX has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Audi S4.

Warranty
The Acura RLX comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi S4.
