2016 Acura TLX vs. The 2016 Honda Accord
Looking for a high-performing sedan with luxurious amenities? Visit McGrath Acura of Westmont, and drive off the lot with a 2016 Acura TLX. Cruise through Chicago and its suburbs in style, turning heads as you go. Optimized for both city and suburban driving, there is no situation that the 2016 TLX can’t handle, and drivers from Naperville to Elmhurst and Downers Grove relish its versatility. To illustrate this, we’ve compared the 2016 Acura TLX to another car in its class, the well-reputed 2016 Honda Accord.
Which Offers the Better Driving Experience?
Loaded with a direct-injection 4-cylinder engine, the new 2016 Acura TLX is built low to the ground with a weight distribution that favors its front end. Its 109.3-inch wheelbase works together with this design to keep the ride smooth, athletic, and sharp. It handles expertly, but it doesn’t require an expert to handle it. The TLX emits strength without hurting the planet, achieving a robust 206 horsepower while delivering an impressive 35 mpg* highway.
The 2016 Honda Accord offers a similar in-line 4-cylinder engine, but its base model only offers 185 horsepower. The 2016 Accord’s wheelbase is identical, so it takes on turns with similar grace, but it’s a little higher off the ground, and its weight distribution is more balanced between its front and its back. This causes a slightly different driving experience, and the 2016 Accord will respond to steering much differently than some drivers may be used to.

Which Vehicle is Right for you?
The 2016 Honda Accord is a fine vehicle, and it no doubt offers an enjoyable and safe driving experience. But it doesn’t offer the potential that the 2016 Acura TLX does. The Accord lacks the power and dynamism of the TLX, and while they are both well suited to urban driving, the TLX can really cut loose on the highway or the Illinois countryside and excels at safe handling in the suburbs. And with a better array of convenient features, the 2016 TLX promises luxury and comfort no matter where you are.
