The 2018 Acura TLX and 2018 Lexus IS are nominally part of the same luxury sedan class, and yet it takes no more than a fleeting comparison to reveal the wide gulf between them. We’ve outlined the key differences to save you the research, so read on to find out which of these close rivals pulls ahead.
Whether you’re interested in heart-pounding power or fuel-friendly efficiency, the Acura comes out ahead, and it also offers either an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission or 9-speed automatic transmission. Expect more seamless power flow than in the Lexus.
The Lexus also lacks some of the Acura’s more innovative comfort features, including GPS-linked automatic climate control, which uses solar sensors to adjust cabin temperature based on the changing intensity of the sun.
As with comfort fittings, the Lexus IS continues to falter when you turn to available safety features. You’ll search in vain for the Acura TLX’s forward-thinking Surround View Camera System, which creates a virtual 360-degree image of the vehicle and surrounding area for convenient low-speed maneuvering.
The Lexus IS struggles to hold pace with the Acura TLX, ultimately falling far behind. If you’re close to Plainfield or Aurora, visit Continental Acura of Naperville today to find out more. Alternatively, feel free to contact us or apply for financing online.
