When shopping for a new sedan, you have likely come across the Acura TLX vs. Honda Accord in your search. Although both vehicles have a lot to offer drivers in the Middletown area, only one can earn a spot on your driveway. So, which will it be? Acura of Berlin has done all of the work for you and compared the latest Acura TLX vs. Honda Accord. Let’s take a closer look at each option to see which is the best choice for your hard-earned dollar. Then you can see how we make the car shopping process even easier.

Interior Design and Features

In the TLX base models, there are more standard features than what’s offered with the Honda Accord. This includes plush seating and innovative tech features. Here are just a few of the ways the interior of the TLX will improve your daily drive. These features are not offered on the Honda Accord base model.

  • Driver and front passenger heated-cushion, heated-seatback front seats
  • Driver lumbar support
  • Leatherette seats
  • Leather steering wheel
  • 7-speaker sound system (4 speakers on the Honda Accord)


Middletown drivers looking for a strong engine configuration will surely be impressed with what lies beneath the hood of the TLX, as opposed to what the Accord offers customers. Here are just some of the specs seen in both models:

  • Standard Engines: The Acura TLX runs on a 2.4L I-4 engine that delivers 206 hp, which provides more power than the Honda Accord. The Accord is equipped with a less powerful 1.5L Intercooled turbo I-4 engine that generates just 192 hp.
  • Available Engines: Both the TLX and the Accord also offer an available V6 engine, but the TLX V6 engine delivers 290 hp, while the Accord V6 engine falls a bit short by providing 252 hp.
  • Standard Performance Features: Acura TLX comes standard with Precision All-Wheel Steer™ technology as well as Vehicle Stability Assist™ with Traction Control and Motion Adaptive Steering. You won’t find these features on the Honda Accord.
  • Upgraded Performance Features: When you opt for the V6 TLX, you have the option of Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive™. There is no comparable system offered to drivers of the Honda Accord.

Reliability and Warranty

A powerful engine configuration and sleek design features mean nothing without a great warranty to give you even more added peace of mind. That’s why Hartford drivers who choose the TLX can get a 4-year/50,000-mile basic warranty, as well as a 6-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty. There is less warranty coverage with the Honda Accord, which gives drivers a 3-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and a 5-year or 60,000-mile powertrain warranty.
