Compare the 2016 Audi A4 MPG Ratings to the 2016 Acura TLX

November 17th, 2015 by

2016 Acura TLXWhile there are some things that Chicagoland drivers prioritize more in luxury cars—power, class, comfort—fuel economy is still important, and before you settle for the 2016 Audi A4‘s mpg ratings, we want you to see what one of its top competitors has to offer. We put the A4 up next to the 2016 Acura TLX and looked at everything that makes them different.

Making the Grade on Fuel Economy

As cars have become more advanced, many have become more efficient. Although Audi has been keeping up with fuel economy trends in the luxury sedan market, Acura has been breaking those trends to deliver a combination of both power and fuel economy instead of forcing drivers to choose between the two.

  • The 2016 Audi A4 mpg ratings come in at a respectable 31 highway mpg.
  • 2016 Acura TLX 8-Spd DCT models are rated at an EPA-estimated 35 highway mpg.*

That’s a pretty noticeable difference between both of these mid-size luxury sedans, and it’s just the first of many advantages of the TLX, which includes a wider range of technology and comfort features than the Audi as well.

The strongest advantage of the TLX is that it gives you a strong sense of luxury and class from the start while also providing a long list of available upgrade options—including a powerful V6 engine. The result is a sedan that can be tailored to fit your needs, whether you want the base model, the fully equipped 2016 TLX V6 SH-AWD, or something in between.
