  • Up to an EPA-estimated 30 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway with the 2021 Honda Accord LX CVT**

The TLX focuses on performance with up to 272 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque, but its efficiency scores aren’t as impressive. You’ll make:

You’ll generally find vehicles in the luxury sedan segment provide plenty of first-class features and fittings but not quite the same level of space and practicality. That certainly holds true when you compare interior dimensions of the TLX against those of the Accord:

  • Cargo Space: Up to 16.7 cubic feet in the trunk of the Honda Accord vs. 13.5 in the Acura TLX.
