2019 Acura TLX Standard Trim


The 2019 Honda Accord and the 2019 Acura TLX are both sophisticated sedans that offer drivers an impressive array of interior features, and a comfortable and fuel efficient ride. While the Accord Touring is maxed out with features at this price point, the TLX is only at its base level, and according to Car and Driver, offers drivers more room to move up the lineup for more technology and luxurious features inside, including “desirable driver-assistance and infotainment features,”. The TLX is also a great option for drivers who love the Accord but want an all-wheel drive option for all-season driving.


When comparing the top-of-the-line Honda Accord Touring 2.0T 10AT with the entry-level TLX Standard with the V6 engine upgrade, the Honda comes in at a slightly lower price point, but the two models are comparably priced, with the TLX offering a more powerful performance as well as some interior features that you won’t find on the Accord.

  • Acura TLX Standard V6 P-AWS – $36,200 MSRP*
  • Honda Accord Touring 2.0T 10AT – $34,990 MSRP
