Comparing The 2020 & 2021 Editions Of The Acura TLX Sedan

Motorists shopping for a new premium sport sedan or performance luxury car can look no further than the Acura TLX. Acura’s sleek TLX sedan has been winning over drivers for years, thanks to its brilliant balance of power, technology and price. This luxurious and dynamic sedan represents the standard in the premium mid-size car class.

If the Acura TLX is already at the top of your list, then which version will you choose? The 2020 Acura TLX remains a popular option for drivers seeking a competitively-priced sport sedan. This modern ride comes standard with a fuel-efficient 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder engine and offers innovative features like Precision All-Wheel Steer™ (P-AWS®) and the full suite of AcuraWatch™ driver-assistive technologies. Enhanced power from a 6-cylinder engine is available with Acura’s 3.5-liter V6, and the automaker’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ is also offered.

The all-new, next-generation TLX arrives for the 2021 model year. The redesigned 2021 Acura TLX also boasts the AcuraWatch™ safety technology suite as standard, plus a choice of 4-cylinder or V6 power and available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™. The key differences with the 2021 TLX include its upgraded powertrains, including a choice of two turbocharged engines: the standard 272-hp 2.0-liter inline-four or a 3.0-liter V6 with an estimated 355 hp.

The 2021 TLX takes Acura’s popular premium sport sedan to a new level of technology and performance. Still, the 2020 edition offers its own version of Acura luxury and performance at a highly competitive price. So far, which of these sedans speaks to you?

Drivers will find that beyond the 2021 Acura TLX’s all-new look inside and out and enhanced performance, this sedan builds upon the 2020 edition, rather than going in a completely different direction. These TLX model years share a similarly sized cabin for up to five passengers and plenty of cargo space. They also offer technology that drivers and passengers will appreciate, including an ELS premium audio system and smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. Both the 2020 and 2021 TLX sedans boast smooth automatic transmissions with Sequential Sportshift and paddle shifters.

As you can see, there are plenty of ways that these Acura sedans are alike, along with several areas where Acura has upgraded the TLX for 2021 and beyond. We encourage you to shop and compare the various packages and editions available for 2020 and 2021 TLX sedans to determine which better suits your preferences and budget.
