Right off the bat, you’ll notice that the Acura TLX is not only offered at a lower starting price than the Audi A6, but its highest-level trim is more affordable than Audi’s entry-level trim! The Acura’s lower price tag doesn’t come at the cost of performance, which we’ll discuss in more detail below. The Acura TLX also offers six available configurations to the Audi’s five, giving you more options to pick and choose your ride based on your unique driving needs. Here’s the full price list:

TLX or A6: Performance Specs

Performance is often one of the top priorities for luxury car drivers, and both the Acura TLX and Audi A6 deliver impressive specs on the Aurora roads. Both luxury sedans come with two available engines, one of which comes standard on lower-level trims and one of which is available on upper-level trims. However, you’ll see that both of the Acura TLX engines outmatch the Audi A6’s offerings, delivering more horsepower and torque no matter which engine you choose. The Acura also comes with a more powerful 10-speed automatic transmission, although the Audi A6 pulls ahead slightly when it comes to fuel efficiency. Given that the Acura TLX comes at a much lower price tag than the Audi A6, you’re definitely getting more bang for your buck when it comes to performance specs! Here are the details for both sedans:
