Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A4 than the Acura TLX, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi A4, the Acura TLX may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura TLX as you will with the Audi A4, 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). The Acura TLX is somewhat more expensive than the Audi A4. 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 TLX and the Audi A4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Acura TLX is about the same width as the Audi A4. When looking at overall length, the Acura TLX takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Audi A4.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Acura TLX transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Audi A4.

Handling
The Acura TLX has a larger turning radius than the Audi A4, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura TLX has a much more powerful engine than the Audi A4. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura TLX and the Audi A4. The Acura TLX has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Audi A4.

Warranty
