2018 Mazda6 vs 2019 Acura TLX

2018 Mazda6 vs 2019 Acura TLX

Although some 2019 Mazda models are expected to be dropping into view quite soon, the newest model in the Mazda inventory is currently the refreshed 2018 Mazda6. Brilliant and stylish, the 2018 Mazda6 midsize sedan offers a luxurious and comfortable experience at an affordable price. However, in regards to its luxury, how does such a factor hold up when compared to an actual luxury brand model?

For that, we've brought in the 2019 Acura TLX. Just as the 2018 Mazda6 is the newest model in the Mazda catalog, the 2019 Acura TLX is also the newest model in the Acura catalog. Both functioning as midsize sedans, we thought this was a matchup made in heaven. Let's begin with the 2018 Mazda6 vs the 2019 Acura TLX!

A bit surprisingly, the 2018 Mazda6 and 2019 Acura TLX nearly match up in terms of engine size. With luxury brand cars, you'll often find a much bigger, yet more powerful, engine when compared to other non-luxury model counterparts. However, the 2018 Mazda6 manages to match the 2019 Acura TLX in terms of torque output and both models have the same combined fuel economy. However, that means the 2018 Mazda6 is the winner with its much lower starting MSRP.

Furthermore, we'd be remiss if we didn't mention the multitude of features that the 2018 Mazda6 offers, including:

  • Dynamic Pressure Turbocharged Engine
  • Bose® 11-Speaker Sound System
  • LED Headlights
  • Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go
  • MAZDA CONNECT™ Infotainment
  • Ultrasuede® Interior Trim
  • Active Driving Display
  • 360° View Monitor
  • Ventilated Nappa Leather Upholstery
  • Advanced Smart City Brake Support
  • And more!
