Performance

According to most critics, the 2019 Audi A4 is one of the top on-road performers in the midsize luxury sedan market. Some of the credit is due to independent front and rear multi-link suspensions that absorb road imperfections while maintaining a sporty feel, an electromagnetic speed-sensitive power steering system that provides sharp handling, and a Quattro all-wheel-drive system that supplies better traction when driving on slick roads.

However, the powertrain is still the star of the show. The standard four-cylinder in the Audi A4 has more horsepower and torque than the Acura TLX's standard engine. Need more? Both models offer a second engine option with the Audi A4 having a more powerful four-cylinder engine while the Acura TLX turns to a V6 for power. The Audi A4, despite its smaller engine size, provides more torque than the TLX with a V6 so that acceleration is quicker, and Chicago Heights drivers will enjoy 27 mpg combined in the A4 compared to 23 mpg with the Acura TLX.

Design

Do those power specs sound like what you want when you hit the gas? Well, lots of Gary drivers fall in love with that performance, but it's the cabin of the Audi A4 that really sets it apart from the 2019 Acura TLX. The new A4 holds advantages over the TLX in headroom and second-row legroom despite the A4 being more compact and lighter than the TLX. That slighter build and lower curb weight make the powerful engine of the A4 more effective while it's also capable of making tighter turns than the TLX. Plus the cabin of the A4 holds luxury materials, like wood inlays, and stylish tech, like ambient interior lighting, which makes riding in it a better experience than the TLX.
