Engine Emphasis

When it comes to power under the hood, the Acura TLX thoroughly outdoes the BMW 3 Series.

The Acura TLX models are powered by two engine options:

  • 2.4L direct injection DOHC i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine, which produces 206 hp and 290 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.5L SOHC i-VTEC V6 engine, which delivers 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque

By comparison, the BMW 3 Series Sedan models are powered by 2.0L TwinPower turbo Inline 4-cylinder engines. In the 320i Sedan and 320i xDrive Sedan models, this engine generates just 180 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque. In the highest-level 328i Sedan model, the engine delivers only 240 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque.

The superior engine might in the TLX is bolstered by various performance-enhancing features, including available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive; standard Precision All-Wheel Steer; a standard Integrated Dynamic System; standard Agile Handling Assist; a standard Motion-Adaptive Electronic Power Steering system; advanced TLX braking system; and a lightweight, rigid body structure.
