2019 Acura TLX in Platinum White

The 2019 Acura TLX and the 2019 Honda Accord are both remarkable sedans that offer drivers a dynamic performance and well-equipped comfortable cabins. For drivers who are considering the top-tier Accord Touring model may also want to take a look at the entry-level TLX Standard, which will cost less than the Accord but offers more features inside the cabin, a longer warranty, and available AWD for all-season driving.

Warranty

For drivers who do opt for the Acura TLX, they can expect a more comprehensive warranty coverage with 48 months or 50,000 miles for a basic warranty and a powertrain warranty that covers 72 months or 70,000 miles. To compare, the Accord’s basic warranty covers about a year less with just 36 months or 36,000 miles and includes a powertrain warranty of 60 months or 60,000 miles.

Features

Car and Driver says the TLX offers “comfy seating and refined handling,” and though the TLX and Accord offer many of the same comfort and technology features, the TLX has more audio features that the Accord leaves off as well as armrest storage for smaller items you need to keep within arm’s reach.

AWD

The TLX also comes with available AWD for drivers who want more traction control behind the wheel and need a vehicle that can perform great throughout all four seasons in Chicago, even on slippery roads. The Accord doesn’t offer AWD on any of its models, so for drivers who need a sedan with AWD, consider the TLX.

P-AWS

Even the FWD TLX offers drivers more traction control than the Accord with it’s Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS) system. It ensures the TLX is performing at its best even on slippery or less than ideal road conditions. P-AWS also adds a sportiness to the TLX with a more thrilling experience behind the wheel when taking corners or curves. The P-AWS is exclusive to Acura models and is not available on the Accord.
