2018 Acura TLX A-SPEC

It’s true that price plays a role in deciding which vehicle you decide to come home with, but sometimes price is not an accurate measure of quality. Just because a vehicle may cost more than a similar competitor doesn’t mean that it will actually be a better vehicle or provide more bang for your buck. A great example of this is the 2018 Acura TLX A-SPEC and the 2018 Audi A4 2.0T Prestige Quattro. See what we mean by reading on.

Paying Less for Much More

Acura TLX A-SPECThese two vehicles do a great job of showing how a higher price tag doesn’t mean that you’ll be receiving a vehicle with more quality. The 2018 Acura TLX A-SPEC with SH-AWD comes in at $44,800 MSRP,* a much lower price than the 2018 Audi A4 2.0T Prestige Quattro, which hits $50,000 MSRP. When you consider that the Audi provides much less than the Acura does for that significantly higher price, the TLX becomes even more desirable. For far less than the Audi’s price, Acura drivers can enjoy more standard features such as ventilated front seats, a 15GB hard drive, and noise cancellation—features that are not available on the Audi at all.

Drivers of the TLX A-SPEC will also get to harness more power with the help of a 3.5L engine that easily delivers 280 hp, while drivers of the A4 lag behind with a 2.0L engine with the ability to bring out only 252 hp. On top of everything else, the 2018 Acura TLX A-SPEC has proved to be safer than the 2018 Audi A4 2.0T Prestige Quattro by earning 5-star safety ratings from the NHTSA** in areas where the Audi only earned 4 stars. No matter how you slice it, the 2018 Acura TLX A-SPEC comes out on top in this comparison.
