Midsize and compact premium sedans can offer drivers fuel efficiency, space, luxury, style, comfort, and more. Both the 2019 Acura RLX and the 2019 Acura TLX do just this. These vehicles both balance utility and performance masterfully while simultaneously blending premium elements of style with comfort and durability. Trying to choose between them is rough! It's like comparing awesome to fantastic. Below, we will look at how these great Acura vehicles stack up side-by-side in some key categories.


The way that a vehicle drives and performs is a quintessential factor that will greatly impact your everyday driving experience. Both of these vehicles would work well as daily drivers and perform well on the interstate and highway. You'll have no issues with acceleration, no matter which one you choose. The 2019 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid offers extremely fast acceleration and boasts a 7-speed automated manual transmission with a 377 hp engine that operates like a dream at 6500 RPM. In comparison, the 2019 Acura TLX blends efficiency and design with a four-cylinder engine that offers impressive fuel consumption and a quiet ride. Both vehicles are responsive to drivers, feature great acceleration, and solid braking. On the whole, the RLX is a tad sportier, and the TLX is a bit more economically friendly. Both are well-built, dependable, and designed with quality.


The features that both of these sedans come with are pretty impressive. The 2019 Acura RLX comes standardly equipped with a multitude of amenities that you just can't find in its competitors. Deal screen interfaces add elements of technology while the interior cabin is stylish, functional, and attractive. A tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel and highly adjustable seats make it comfortable to drive. Impressive climate control features add to the comfort and classy yet subtle accents balance it nicely. The 2019 Acura TLX showcases premium quality materials both inside and out. It's an attractive vehicle with new 19=inch wheels available, a spec-appearance package, spacious back seats, tons of driver aids in all trims, and more. It's a bit more subtle in some ways than the RLX but feels somewhat more upscale inside. It would be great for long road trips! Both vehicles have great features, but the 2019 TLX wins by a hare when it comes to interior amenities.


If safety is important to you, either of these Acura vehicles would be a great choice. The 2019 TLX offers Think Lane Keep Assist, Collision Mitigation, Forward Collision Warning, and more. The RLX has a similar list of safety features that is also extensive and comes standard with the same driver aids. Both vehicles are about equal in this category and would be a good choice for anyone who prioritizes driver and passenger safety.
