Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Acura TLX than in the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, due to the Acura TLX's smaller rear head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, 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 Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, 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). Based on MSRP, the Acura TLX is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63. 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 Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Acura TLX is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Acura TLX, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63.

Handling
The Acura TLX has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura TLX is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
The Acura TLX has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura TLX and the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63. The Acura TLX has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63.

Warranty
The Acura TLX comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63.
