2021 Acura TLX vs Honda Accord vs Hyundai Sonata N Line // DRAG & ROLL RACE

18 000 Shikime 955 mijë

Thomas and James have put countless cars down the Throttle House test track. The 2020 Honda Accord 2.0T ($41,505.00 CAD) with a 10 speed auto has eaten many of them down the quarter mile but today we’ve brought out two challengers to see if we can de-throne the king of quick economy. The all new 2021 Acura TLX AH-AWD (Seen here in its platinum Elite trim $52,305.00) with the same 2.0T engine but added AWD, and the 2021 Sonata N-Line ($37,999) with 290 HP \u0026 311 lb ft torque should give the Honda a run for its money. Things don't always go as predicted. Watch now and find out! SUBSCRIBE!



Huge thank you to our friends and family that helped on the day, who are our heroes.

    "Well, the Accord is in a bloody different universe." "But the Accord doesn't even feel that quick when you drive it, you just get to watch the Sonatas disappear" This is so accurate 😂

    This is BS. The sonata does 1/4 in 13.5 or 13.7. TLX is 2 or 3 tenths faster than the accord so the results here are completely backwards. Fastest to slowest Sonata TLX Accord. Terrible video.

    So the Sonata had a pre-production issue that cut boost in launch control if you held the brake too hard. I guess its fixed now.

    The Accord Sport is absolutely awesome. For context I considered it alongside MUSCLE CARS and AWD turbo 6s for my next ride. Now I ended up going with a Mustang GT PP1, but the fact I even considered a 4 cylinder commuter car along side V8s and turbo 6s shows that it really is more spicy and fun then you’re average commuter car.

    2.5 T and 40 more hp of course you should wi roll race! that's not something to boast about or happy about! Idiot! and barely wins but looks like accord driver seemed purposely let Sonatat run faster because it's time to PR sonata!! Look at the drag race! Sonata is way behind! Who would care about roll race idiot!

      What do you mean? What a drag race proves is who hooks off the line better and who’s traction control system is better and what a roll race proves is who puts down more HP and most importantly the which car had more torque

Then watch the drag race video of them in the ZL1/Hellcat/Mustang (where they are hyper focused and sweating during and after the race).
