February 8th, 2016 by

Acura TLXLuxury car shoppers in the Metro Detroit and West Michigan areas, have you been intrigued by the 2016 Audi A4 price? We want to make sure all of our drivers have the full picture, so we put the 2016 Audi A4 price and features up against a top competitor: the 2016 Acura TLX. The TLX replaced two different outgoing Acura vehicles, and it’s had little trouble keeping pace with the A4.

The Price

We know that many drivers who go looking for a new luxury sedan are more than willing to spend a little extra on a car that offers true value, but we think you might be surprised at how much automakers like Audi are charging for their sedans.

  • The 2016 Audi A4 price starts at $35,900 for the basic 2.0T Premium model.
  • The 2016 Acura TLX 2.4 8-DCT has a base price of only $31,695 (MSRP).*

Now, we know many of you might expect the Audi A4 to come with a superior package of features or a more fuel-efficient engine, but that just isn’t the case.

The Features

Luxury sedans are not all created equal, and despite the price difference, there are quite a few amenities you’ll find on the 2016 Acura TLX that either require an upgrade or are simply unavailable on the A4, including:

  • Driver-side memory settings for mirrors, seating, and climate control
  • Multi-angle rearview camera system with guidelines
  • Heated front seating with dual-stage heating elements
  • Jewel Eye LED headlights
  • Noise/sound cancellation
  • Push-button ignition
  • Steering wheel–mounted paddle shifters

The TLX’s base engine is designed to be more fuel efficient than the A4’s as well:

  • 2016 TLX 2.4 8-DCT models have a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine under the hood and earn an EPA-estimated 35 highway mpg.**
  • The 2016 Audi A4 2.0T Premium has a 2.0L turbocharged engine that only manages 31 mpg on the highway.
