Honda Accord vs Acura TLX: Trim Levels

The Honda Accord provides numerous trim levels, so you can home in on the ideal one for your driving practices. You'll find the LX, Sport, Sport Special Edition, EX-L, Sport 2.0T, and Touring 2.0T, as well as multiple hybrid trims.

Meanwhile, the Acura TLX only comes in four different trims. They include Standard, Technology, A-Spec, and Advance.

Honda Accord vs Acura TLX: Performance

Again, variety makes its appearance in the 2021 Accord with two separate engines, the 1.5 VTEC® turbocharged 4-cylinder engine or the available 2.0L engine. You can get either a continuously variable transmission or the optional 10-speed automatic transmission. When driving the LX and EX-L trims, you'll achieve an EPA-estimated 30 city/38 highway MPG.1

Only one engine, the 2.0L VTEC Turbo, resides under the hood of the Acura TLX. A 10-speed automatic transmission accompanies it. With the first two trims, you'll achieve an EPA-estimated 22 city/31 highway MPG, significantly less than the Honda.

Honda Accord vs Acura TLX: Exterior

Need to tuck your car into a small space in your driveway? The Honda reaches 192.2 inches in length and stretches 73.3 inches in width. If you decide on the Acura TLX, it extends to 194.6 inches in length and spans 75.2 inches in width, so it's larger than its competitor.

Accord vs Acura TLX: Interior Dimensions

When you're searching for more interior space, you have it with the Honda Accord. The cabin offers 105.6 cubic feet of passenger volume. With the Acura, it provides you much less with 93.4 cubic feet of the same.

TLX Front/Rear


39.5/37.3 inches

37.2/36.3 inches

Shoulder Room

58.3/56.5 inches

58.2/55 inches

You'll receive more rear legroom in the Honda, a valuable commodity, at 40.4 inches. The Acura affords you only 34.9 inches of rear legroom.

If you need to store shopping bags or luggage, the Accord provides you with 16.7 cubic feet of cargo space. For Acura drivers, you can expect less with 13.5 cubic feet of cargo space in your trunk.

Honda Accord vs Acura TLX: Technology

Both vehicles give you 7-inch screens behind the wheel that detail your fuel, speed, and more. One alert, driver attention warning, appears in the Honda Driver Information Interface if it detects a pattern of drifting out of your lane. There's no sign of a similar feature in the Acura.

To accommodate all your passengers, you can add Wi-Fi® hotspot capability to your Accord for up to 10 devices. In the Acura TLX, the Wi-Fi Hotspot only connects seven devices in total.
