2020 Acura TLX vs 2020 Audi A4

The 2020 Acura TLX and the 2020 Audi A4 are highly sought after and undeniably attractive sports sedans.  But, we want to look at how the 2020 TLX specs compare to one of its most established and revered German rivals.  When you visit our dealer location, we want our customers to feel confident that they are getting behind the wheel of the more superior vehicle.


The Acura TLX offers a little more front leg and headroom than the Audi A4, allowing the driver and front passenger to enjoy every exhilarating moment of acceleration.  The Audi A4 driver seat offers 8-way power-adjustability, whereas the TLX features front sport seating with 10-way power-adjustability.

When you are seated behind the wheel of the Audi A4, you will not be able to manage more than one function with its single-view display.  But the Acura TLX dual display allows you to easily adjust climate and audio settings while maintaining the view of Android Auto or Apple CarPlay when in use.


The 2020 Acura TLX features a Keyless Access System with push-button ignition that enables you to unlock the doors, get seated, and start the engine without removing the key from your purse or pocket.  A similar convenient feature is available on the Audi A4 but at a cost.

Active Sound Control on the 2020 TLX mitigates engine noise for a quieter ride.  Currently, the Audi A4 does not provide similar technology to actively alleviate noise.
