A VW passat 2.0 TSI traps faster in the 1/4 with almost 100hp less

The only way i could ever even possibly recommend the TLX is if you REALLY Like how it looks and are 100% going to JB4 and exhaust tune it otherwise dont bother.

Eat me. A Passat with front wheel drive vs true torque vectoring. No one trying to embarrass this car is going to try it against a flea like a Passat, they are going to use an M340i which costs $20k more. This has much more hp it’s only restriction is weight off the line you try a punch at 50 to 70 you are going to be obliterated. Enjoy, German believer! More weight makes a far superior interstate car and much more resistant to crosswinds!

JB4 Turns this into a monster. (+55whp) for only around 550 usd.
The JB4 Tlx type S absolutely Gaps stock too.

*TLX has an exhaust tune (sounds amazing btw)
Stinger wins 3/4 of the races with one loss only due to late reaction
Also that accord with a small tune is mighty

My Acura TLX Type S estimations

Motor Trend Figure-8: 23.2 sec @ 1.00 G. (NOTE: This is possible only with the summer performance tire and wheel package; it's usually going to be 24.7 seconds. With that being said, it knocks out the Cadillac CT5-V BLACKWING on this circuit!!)
Nurburgring Nordschleife: 7:58 - quicker than Maserati Ghibli Trofeo
Top Gear Test Track: 1:23 - equal to Maserati Ghibli Trofeo and much quicker than Lexus IS500 F Sport

Anyone who is a true car guy (or gal) knows that the TLX is actually an E-segment car that competes wth the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series and Mercedes E-Class. NOT a D-segment car by ANY means. ESPECIALLY the second-generation model. It is way too heavy to compete with an M340i. It makes much more sense to compare it with a 540i.

Price has nothing to do with size because if that was the case, then the Chrysler 300 (an E-segment car) would compete with a Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class or an Acura Integra (both of which are C-segment cars). Rather, price has to do either with target demographics or build quality (sometimes both).

By the way, the Acura TLX is no longer based on the Honda Accord. The Type S version is absolutely amazing, there is nothing that rivals it in the strict sense, NOT even the premium-focused sedans like the CT5-V, 300S V8, or G80 Sport. This car is actually not about raw power; the car relies indirectly on breaking laptime records in the 320-380hp category of E-segment sedans.

It's NOT ONLY going to produce better laptimes than a 540i M Sport (which makes similar peak power), but also in some cases even an M550i. Acura was always about performance credibility, not really about luxury. And even though this car has 600 lbs of fat stored into its body, HALF of which come from the unnecessary luxury features, it MANAGED to be ONLY a couple seconds SLOWER than the D-segment, overpowered IS500F, and that car is supposed to compete with CT4-V Blackwing as well as standard M3 and Giulia QV.

Imagine what Acura will do when they release a more aggressive Type R version of the TLX, most likely a hybrid version of the J30AC engine (and/or possibly a V8 based on a twin set of K20C4 motors). I'm not revealing any predicted horsepower numbers, but I want everyone, ESPECIALLY HONDA/ACURA FANS to just imagine...

the tlx might be as big and weigh as much as a 5 series/e class/a6 but the interior has less space than a 3 series, c class or a4. its a great car but its packaged in a very strange manner, the legroom has been a serious complaint with many car journalists and outlets. also, as for direct rivals, the c43, m340i and s4 all have very similar power figures. they all also use 2.9-3 liter v6/i6 engines.
