A 640 hp engine would change your opinion of the CTS LOL. You drove a Luxury (lower tier) CTS. The Platinum level (equivalent to Acura’s Advance level) has a better interior and more features. ...

And I believe the RDX was designed to handle a V6. And I believe Acura said the RDX was a totally new platform. I suspect they will use that on most of the new Acura models.

Back on topic, if a purported TLX-S is $50k, that's right around the same price as, or a bit less than, a Kia Stinger GT2 (the one with all the bells and whistles). I'd...

You get it fixed? Audi has been ranked higher than Acura for dependability lately, so I am not too worried. Plus, I have not seen any reports of failures on the Audi owner websites that I visit.

You're forgetting that the TLX replaced both the TL and TSX, so expecting to sell 60,000 a year probably wasn't a crazy unrealistic goal to Acura.

The thread makes no sense. OP complains that the A6 2.0T ďisnít a sports sedanĒ but drives a TLX, which definitely isnít a sports sedan either.

Just go buy a sports sedan and be done with it.
