I don't like trucks or SUVs. Fit and finish is probably better on the RDX, but the TLX has a more suited engine for this class and might end cheaper. Combined fuel economy is the same but the TLX...

If you refer to Accord 2.0T or RDX 2.0T... heu no, not really. The Accord get 22/32mpg and a TLX V6 20/32. Very close.

Finally somebody here gets it.

Whether it is 5-60 or 0-60 is not relevant; what is is mashing the throttle from idle.

I understand that Acura is looking after 3-series volumes, but its closest competitor now is the Buick Regal GS V6 3.6. Which has to establish itself.

Superb interior and color combo. Adequate powertrain,. My only reserve, compared to its predecessor is about this new 'square' exterior styling in all recent Audi. A great buy nonetheless.
