2020 Nissan Maxima vs 2020 Acura TLX

If you’re considering upgrading to a luxury vehicle, a midsize luxury sedan is the perfect place to start. But in a segment that’s speckled with impressive options, finding something that best matches your needs and budget can be a challenging task. That’s why we’re pitting the 2020 Nissan Maxima against the 2020 Acura TLX in this luxury sports sedan comparison.

In order to claim the title luxury sports sedan, you need to have the horses to back it up. For most drivers, the 2020 Acura TLX and its standard 206-horsepower engine will provide more than enough power, but the Maxima packs more value for your investment with its 300-horsepower V6. The Acura TLX also lets you opt for an available 290-horsepower V6 engine, but even at its most powerful the TLX falls short in competition with the Maxima and its standard V6.

Comparing the Safety and Interior of the 2020 Nissan Maxima and 2020 Acura TLX 

Both cars come suited up with standard automatic emergency braking and lane-departure warning, but only the 2020 Nissan Maxima and its Safety Shield® 360 suite will provide drivers with blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and rear automatic braking from every trim level.

As Nissan’s flagship sedan, the 2020 Maxima showcases the company’s best technology, performance and luxury features at a price that dramatically undercuts European sport sedans. Even towards the start of the lineup, the value-laden Maxima SV features leather-appointed seats, heated front seats and on-screen navigation. The Acura TLX suffers no shortage of features, but it can’t hold a light to the Maxima line. At its most opulent, the Maxima Platinum tops the range with amenities like diamond-quilt leather seats, ventilated front seats, a dual-panel panoramic moonroof, Bose audio and so much more.
