The problem with the last generation TLX is that it’s performance wasn’t really great. The AWD system added weight and increased drivetrain losses, making it slower than the Accord with the same engine. Read more

I know this is a joke post, but % differences don’t work well with 0-60 because the improvements are non-linear. Going from 6.0 to 5.4s is much less of a performance improvement than going from 3.0 to 2.7s. Read more

This thing is not losing weight if they are adding two turbos. I’d be surprised if the base model came in at under 3700lbs.  The TT Q60 is 4k.

This seems like the perfect candidate for a nice, torquey, turbo four.  Maybe that KR20 with the variable compression?

Ofc Porsche can do better, they have a higher power version of the same motor sitting in the parts bin. As is the case with every single “entry level” turbo 4, it’s sandbagged in order to make a case for people to upgrade to the big engine. Read more
