2017 Acura TLX vs 2017 Audi A6 Style & Design

From a distance, these two sedans share a close resemblance. They each feature a stylish and alluring body. However, up close, their differences are more apparent.

The Acura TLX has more of an aggressive and sporty aesthetic. The front grille highlights the commanding abilities, but it also comes to somewhat of a point in the front. The Jewel Eye® LED headlights provide both fashion and function. The Audi A6 has a low-to-the-ground appearance. It features the iconic Audi grille, but due to its body style, it doesn't carry the same performance appearance as the Acura TLX.
