As you browse luxury sedans, your decision will likely come down to the 2015 Acura TLX vs. the 2015 Infiniti Q50. The best way to decide is to get to know each vehicle’s features and performance options. In nearly every category, the Acura TLX comes out a winner, with superior handling and performance, in addition to a host of standard features that either aren’t available or cost extra on the Infiniti Q50. Whether you are looking for a vehicle that can handle the morning commute or one that is suitable for transporting guests, you will want to take a closer look at these two luxury sedans to choose the right one for you.
When it comes to performance, the Acura TLX edges out the Infiniti Q50 in terms of handling and steering. The 9-speed transmission on the TLX outstrips the clunky 7-speed on the Q50. Likewise, the steering and handling on the Acura is superior to that of the Infiniti, thanks to the standard Precision All-Wheel Steering System on the TLX, which is not available on the Q50. In addition, AWD torque vectoring provides smooth transitions around corners on the Acura when compared to the Infiniti, which also does not offer this feature. The premium performance of the TLX also contributes to better gas mileage, giving you 5 mpg more on the highway than the Q50.
When it comes to comfort, you expect more from a luxury vehicle, which is why standard features matter as you compare different makes and models. In terms of standard options, the Acura again comes out ahead, offering many comforts for drivers and passengers alike. The Q50 simply doesn’t offer the following features as standard, while the TLX does:
- Brake hold (unavailable on the Q50)
- Text and email smart phone integration (unavailable on the Q50)
- Seat and side mirror memory settings
- Heated front seats
- Split fold down rear seatback
- Ventilated front seats
- Available remote engine start (unavailable on the Q50)
Luxury vehicles are made to make an impression, and the 2015 Acura TLX outstrips the 2015 Infiniti Q50 in design at nearly every turn. The TLX features distinctive LED headlights while the Q50 headlights appear dull and standard. Drivers enjoy the sleeker look of the thinner and more stylized 18-inch alloy wheels on the Acura. Inside the vehicle, the TLX also offers design features that are more stylized and luxurious than the Q50 counterpart, including:
- Metallic finish on a smoothly designed dashboard
- Wider cabin and larger backseat for the comfort of all passengers
