2014 Audi A4 vs. 2014 Acura TL Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Audi A4 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Acura TL with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Acura TL will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A4.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A4 as you will with the Acura TL, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi A4 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Acura TL. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi A4 and the Acura TL have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A4 is much slimmer than the Acura TL, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Audi A4 is slightly shorter than the Acura TL, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Audi A4 and the Acura TL do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Audi A4 has a smaller turning radius than the Acura TL, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A4 is significantly less powerful than the Acura TL. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A4 and the Acura TL. The Audi A4 has less cargo capacity than the Acura TL, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Audi A4 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Acura TL.
