The 2016 Acura TLX Standard Features Beat Competitors

April 4th, 2016 by

2016 Acura TLXQuite a few Chicagoland drivers have questions about the 2016 Acura TLX standard features. We thought the best answer was to compare it to the competition, and we found that the TLX offers more to drivers than popular models from BMW, Audi, Lexus, and Infiniti. Because we know drivers have quite a few different options in the luxury auto world, we didn’t limit ourselves to sedans, comparing the TLX to a popular crossover as well.

So take a seat and see the edge the TLX has over its competition before you visit a Chicagoland Acura Dealer to sit behind the wheel for a test drive.

The TLX Standard Features Stand Out

Even in the luxury car world, the average entry-level sedan or crossover is often sparsely equipped, but that’s not the case for the 2016 Acura TLX standard features. First, let’s take a look at some of the advantages the car has over its competition before we explore its full list of standard features.

  • The 2016 Audi A4 2.0T Premium is a stylish luxury car, but when it comes to features, it comes up short. You won’t find these TLX standards on the A4: driver-side memory settings, push-button ignition, steering wheel–mounted paddle shifters, a multi-view rear camera, or even heated front seating.
  • The 2015 Infiniti Q50 is yet another luxury sedan that falls behind the Acura TLX, missing key features like driver memory settings that remember just where your mirrors and seat were, a power moonroof, heated front seats, a universal garage door opener, paddle shifters, and noise/sound cancellation.
  • The 2016 Lexus ES 350 comes closer to the Acura than many other competitors, but it still doesn’t include noise/sound cancellation, driver memory settings, heated front seating, or paddle shifters as standard like the TLX does.
  • And finally the crossover, BMW’s 2016 X3, is found lacking when put next to the TLX, missing features like driver-side memory adjustments, a power moonroof, a multi-angle rearview camera, power-adjustable heated front seating, satellite radio, noise/sound cancellation, steering wheel–mounted paddle shifters, and more.

These are just four competing models, and we included the crossover to show you that this isn’t just a symptom of luxury sedans.

In addition to the features that the BMW, Infiniti, Lexus, and Audi were lacking, you’ll find amenities like Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, a standard touchscreen infotainment system, automatic climate control, Acura-exclusive Jewel Eye LED headlights, and much more on just the basic 2016 TLX. Upgrading to the available 3.5L V6 engine or adding on the Advance or Technology Packages will take the Acura even further out of the reach of the competitors.

Test Drive an Acura

We want to show you what the TLX is capable of, as there’s more going for it than the long list of 2016 Acura TLX standard features. Visit a Chicagoland Acura Dealer near you today to take a test drive of this new sport sedan and see for yourself everything it has going for it. Both engines are sporty and fun to drive, but we recommend starting with the V6 to get the full experience.
