Accord vs TLX: Performance Specs

Honda Accord vs Acura TLX

Both the Honda Accord and Acura TLX offer stellar performance capability and it all begins with what’s under the hood. In the Honda Accord, that’s a 1.5L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that makes just shy of 200 horsepower. This is the kind of power drivers can rely on when they’re out on the highway, but your city drives will be just as buttery smooth too.

The 2.4L engine in the Acura TLX makes just over 200 horsepower, which is comparable to the entry-level Accord engine.

However, the Accord has something the TLX does not—a hybrid version. This hybrid edition is a fuel-efficient gamechanger, allowing you to drive longer without having to stop and fill up as often. With the Hybrid, EX, EX-L, and Touring trims, and an Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission (E-CVT), you’ll get an EPA-estimated 48 city/47 highway MPG with the Accord—better fuel economy than any TLX.1

Honda Accord vs Acura TLX: Interior Dimensions

Step inside the Honda Accord, and you’ll quickly see just how spacious this vehicle is. With 39.5 inches of front headroom, the Accord outpaces the Acura TLX, which only carries 37.2 inches of front headroom. Rear headroom is more copious in the Honda Accord too.

Front legroom is comparable between the two models, but when it comes to ensuring rear passengers are happy, it’s hard not to go with the 2020 Accord, which offers 40.4 inches of legroom in the back. Choose the Acura TLX and you’ll have just shy of 35 inches of rear legroom, which leaves you feeling cramped.

Having room for all your valuable cargo is key too. With 16.7 cubic feet of cargo space in the Honda Accord, the 14.3 cubic feet of cargo space in the TLX never seems to be enough.

Tackle the Roads with Top-Notch Technology

When you’re out on the roads, it’s certainly nice to be able to rely on helpful tech features that can lead the way. For instance, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration is found in both the Accord and TLX.

With this smartphone functionality, you’ll have access to text messages, navigation apps, and music, right on the screen in the center stack area. With just a few taps, it’s like using your phone at home, but you don’t have to take your eyes off the road to do it.

The Accord and TLX also come with a host of safety features, including lane keeping technology, rearview cameras, and collision mitigation systems.
