Accord vs. TLX: Performance and Efficiency

The Acura lineup is defined by track-like agility and performance, and this is really where the TLX earns its price difference over the Accord. It offers:

  • Up to 272 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque vs. 192 hp with the Accord’s standard engine or 252 hp with its available engine.
  • Standard FWD or available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) vs. FWD only with the Accord.

Of course, that sort of power and performance isn’t necessary for most drivers, so you might find the Accord’s superior efficiency specs more compelling. You’ll make up to an EPA-estimated:

  • 30 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway with the 2021 Honda Accord LX CVT****
  • 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway with the 2021 Acura TLX Standard Package with FWD***
