The 2014 Acura TL is designed to be a cut above the competition. Nevertheless, many informed consumers often compare it to other vehicles within its class. The 2014 BMW 335i happens to be one such vehicle, claiming to offer similar features and dimensions as the TL. Rest assured that the TL offers a number of advantages that aren’t found in the 335i and other vehicles.
In a direct comparison between the two, the 2014 Acura TL wins out in price, convenience features and interior dimensions. For instance, the TL offers 3.1 inches more front shoulder room and 1.1 inches more rear shoulder room than the 335i. The TL also excels when it comes to front and rear legroom. You’ll also enjoy the standard leather trimmed seats with front adjustable manual lumbar support.
Heated front seats are available as standard on the TL, whereas they’re only available as an option on the 335i. The TL also comes standard with satellite radio and surround sound, both optional on the 335i. It’s also the only vehicle in this comparison to feature a compact disc changer. The 335i also lacks the TL’s armrest storage compartment – a handy place to store those small items.
For spirited motoring, the TL offers standard paddle shifters, yet another feature that’s available only as an option on the 335i. The TL also features a wider front and rear track, giving it improved handling over its competitor. While the TL and 335i both share a 48-month/50,000-mile basic warranty, the TL’s 72-month/70,000-mile powertrain warranty bests the BMW’s 48-month/50,000-mile coverage.
