For those interested in a sophisticated sedan with all of the most state-of-the-art features, there is a good chance that you have encountered the 2020 Acura TLX and the 2019 Honda Accord in your search. While each has a lot to offer Naperville drivers, you can only choose one. McGrath Acura of Westmont is here to compare the TLX vs. Accord to help you make a more informed decision. See which sedan comes out on top after comparing several key areas.

Interior Design and Features

When you look at the base model of the Acura TLX, you will see that it has more standard features than the Honda Accord. This includes plush seating with suede insets and contrast stitching. The Acura TLX is also an affordable luxury option, so you do not have to break the bank to have all of the sophisticated amenities you desire.


Elmhurst drivers also prioritize vehicle performance, which is another reason why the 2020 Acura TLX should be at the top of your list. Below are some of the most important performance specs for each sedan.

  • Standard Engines: The Acura TLX runs on a 2.4L I-4 engine capable of producing 206 hp. The Accord falls a bit short in comparison. The sedan from Honda runs on a 1.5L Intercooled turbo I-4 engine that delivers 192 hp.
  • Available Engines: Both the TLX and the Accord also offer an available V6 engine, but the TLX V6 engine delivers 290 hp, while the Accord V5 engine delivers just 252 hp.
  • Standard Performance Features: Standard offerings on the TLX that you won’t find with the Accord include Precision All-Wheel Steer™ technology as well as Vehicle Stability Assist™ with Traction Control and Motion Adaptive Steering.
  • Upgraded Performance Features: When you opt for the V6 TLX, you have the option of Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive™. The Accord doesn’t have a similar AWD system.

Reliability and Warranty

Warranty coverage is another component to consider when in the market for a brand-new car. Downers Grove drivers can enjoy a 4-year/50,000-mile basic warranty, as well as a 6-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty by choosing the Acura TLX. The Accord, on the other hand, only comes with a 3-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and a 5-year or 60,000-mile powertrain warranty.
