The 2019 Acura TLX vs. the 2019 Honda Accord
The 2019 Acura TLX and the 2019 Honda Accord are both remarkable sedans inside and out. 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 come at a lower MSRP than the Accord and offer a longer warranty, more features inside the cabin, and available AWD for all-season driving.
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 36 months or 36,000 miles and includes a powertrain warranty of 60 months or 60,000 miles.
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 inside the cabin, the luxurious TLX adds more audio features as well as storage options throughout the cabin.

The TLX also comes with available AWD for drivers who want more control behind the wheel and need a vehicle that can perform great throughout all four seasons, 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.
For drivers who don’t need AWD, you might want to consider the TLX still for its FWD Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS) system which can increase control and traction on slippery roads or through 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.
