2019 Mazda6 vs 2020 Acura TLX

2019 Mazda6 vs 2020 Acura TLX

Arguably, the most distinctive part of the Mazda brand, and therein its catalog of vehicles, is its dedication to high-quality production. Compared to many of its competitors within the automotive market, such as Honda and Toyota and Nissan, the Mazda brand aims higher.

Where nearly all of the Mazda brand’s competitors have a dedicated luxury brand within their company conglomerate, Mazda does not. This is because the Mazda brand feels incredibly confident in their models’ capabilities. Mazda models are built affordable enough to challenge their counterparts in brands such as Honda and Nissan. At the same time, Mazda models are built with high-quality materials, luxury and comfort features, and finely-tuned engine dynamics to combat against the luxury brands of Acura and Infiniti among others.

For today, we’ll test to see if Mazda is successful in this approach to battle and win against luxury competitors. To do so, we’ll take the recently released 2019 Mazda6 midsize sedan and pit it against a counterpart from a luxury brand. We’re chosen the newest 2020 model of the TLX from Acura, which is the luxury offshoot of the Honda brand. It’s the 2019 Mazda6 vs the 2020 Acura TLX!
