Performance

The 2016 Acura TLX offers an impressive 290 horsepower, which admittedly just barely gets beaten out by the Q50’s 328. The Q50 also barely edges out the 2016 Acura TLX in torque—getting 269 to the 267 of the TLX. But the TLX offers 24 mpg city and 35 mpg highway* to the Q50’s 20 mpg city and 30 mpg highway—a major difference that drivers will notice every single time they stop to fill up. The TLX sports a 17.2 gallon fuel tank to the Q50’s 20. However, with the difference in fuel economy, Q50 drivers get less time on the road and still pay more at the pump. All in all, both cars offer drivers a solid engine and as much power as they could want. While the Q50 has some marginally better specifications over the 2016 Acura TLX, when the TLX wins, it’s by literal miles.
