If you’re searching for a performance-minded full-size luxury sedan, you’ve probably come across the 2015 Acura TLX. When compared to the popular 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the TLX stands alone with outstanding performance, safety, and luxurious features—but don’t take our word for it. See for yourself how these key specs on each base model stack up.


When comparing the starting price for both the base Acura TLX and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the TLX clearly comes out on top. Its starting MSRP is $34,990, several thousands less than its competitor from Mercedes-Benz. The C-Class base model has a starting MSRP of $43,000.

Agile Performance

While the TLX and C-Class are close in many aspects, the TLX really pulls ahead when it comes to performance. When you get behind the wheel, the driver-centric engineering will be obvious with its agile performance and reactive design.

  • The Acura TLX offers an I-4 2.4L DOHC 4-cylinder engine with front wheel drive and an automatic 8-speed transmission with manual mode, overdrive, and paddle-shifter controls.
  • The Mercedes-Benz C-Class includes a 16V Turbo DOHC 2.0L I-4 engine with a 7-speed automatic transmission with manual mode.

Luxurious Features

The Acura TLX is highly praised for the extensive features available on the base model. On the TLX’s exterior, you’ll find the model’s iconic Jewel Eye LED headlamps. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class only offers halogen headlights. LED headlights provide better light return from road signs, making them more visible during night driving. They also produce a large light pattern on the road for safer driving in the dark.


While both the TLX and the C-Class are covered under a similar warranty, Acura goes above and beyond when it comes to the TLX. The powertrain is covered for 60 months, compared to 48 months with the C-Class. The powertrain is also under warranty for a longer distance with the TLX (100,000 km vs. 80,000 km).
