The 2020 Honda Accord and 2020 Acura TLX both have a lot to offer Anaheim Hills-area drivers. But when you take a closer look you’ll find that only one of these vehicles can provide the safety features, interior space, and fuel efficiency that most of today’s sedan shoppers want. This side-by-side new Honda Accord vs Acura TLX comparison from Weir Canyon Honda will help you find out which is the best new sedan for you.
Accord or TLX: Pricing
The entry-level 2020 Honda Accord LX has a starting MSRP of $24,020, compared to the $33,000 price tag of the 2020 Acura TLX. That’s a difference of $8,980, which could be a game-changer for some Yorba Linda drivers. Does the higher price mean the Acura offers more power, interior space, and safety? Not quite, as you’ll see below.
Accord or TLX: Performance & Fuel Efficiency
While the base engine of the 2020 TLX produces more horsepower than the base engine of the Accord LX, the Honda sedan can deliver more torque and better fuel efficiency. But when you factor in the lower MSRP of the Accord, the question of which is the best new sedan to choose becomes clear. Review the performance specs of the Accord vs. TLX below:
