While we hold the 2018 Acura TLX in high regard, its deliverance of performance is average for the class. Competing within the same class are the 2018 BMW M3, the 2018 Cadillac ATS, and the 2018 Infiniti Q50.

Although it falls behind by just 2.15 seconds in a 0-60 run, the 2018 Acura TLX fails to solidify its name as the best in the class as far as acceleration is concerned. The quarter-mile run times show us nothing different, with the 2018 Acura TLX falling 0.7 seconds behind the 2018 Audi A4.
