Difference Between TL and TSX

acura-tsx-pdTL vs TSX

Most people who take a quick peek, believe that there are very few differences between the TL and TSX models. Acura has actually developed both of these models to appeal to the needs of those with families to transport, combined with the desire to have fun while driving.

The TL is listed at a slightly higher market price than the TSX. While they share the same engine size and identical city MPG, the winner of the highway miles per gallon is the TSX.

The TL is a bit bigger when you compare their cubic feet, width, length, and wheelbase. These larger dimensions also mean it has a larger turning radius. You also receive an additional cubic foot of cargo space with the TL. For those who anticipate more than one passenger, the larger interior translates directly to more passenger comfort.

The TL offers an all wheel drive version, but the safety features and the powertrain are basically identical.

As far as styling is concerned, the TSX not only has made some improvements to its fun, sleek, aerodynamic design, but also offers more available body features for those who like to bring a personal style to their cars with outer performance features. The TSX has more available options for enhancing the steering and suspension aspects, for a ride that is faster and more comfortable.

The TL is an Acura that is designed for those who look for higher quality when it comes to having a nice car. Small details give the appeal of a full sized sedan, while the smaller TSX offers a bit less refinement.

At the time of this writing, the TSX resells for more than the TL simply because there are more TLs on the road.

The TL has been reviewed as more comfortable for those who are particular about their car seats. Long rides have been reported to become uncomfortable enough to pull over for a break when riding in the TSX.

But what about those things that are harder to list in statistical form? The smaller frame and body of the TSX gives it a more responsive feel. With tighter turning radius and a slightly lighter weight, there is an improvement to its overall driver’s connection with the road, and basic fun factor.
