Continental Acura In Naperville, IL Explores The Design Of Each Vehicle

The Lexus IS 250 does not offer a visual design that differs from the IS 350. They are essentially the same vehicle with the difference being a smaller engine in the Lexus IS 250. The attempt by the Lexus IS 250 to offer a bold and eye catching design could be considered successful if one were looking to better fit in with the American muscle cars and their large pronounced grilles in the front. However, such design does not necessarily tell onlookers that this is a high end luxury car. The Acura TLX offers exquisite modern sophistication and elegance that lets the viewer know that a truly superb vehicle has arrived. The Jewel Eye headlights are not only more effective than the traditional halogens they provide a functional eye catching look that illuminates curves sooner without distracting oncoming traffic. Inside, the Acura TLX provides warm wood trim that is perfectly rendered into a plush and modern cabin that exceeds the expectations of a luxury vehicle.

Performance Is A Specialty At Continental Acura In Naperville, IL

The Lexus IS 250 brags of a track tuned suspension and is the rear wheel drive little brother of the more powerful IS 350. As a rear-wheel drive vehicle, the Lexus IS 250 may be preferable on a track under ideal conditions, however it is less beneficial when navigating icy or otherwise slick roads. It is generally better to pull a vehicle through such conditions with a front-wheel drive vehicle than it is to maintain control while the power is at the rear wheels. The other primary performance difference is the engine. The Lexus IS 250 only comes with a slightly less powerful and far less fuel efficient V6 than the 4-cylinder that that comes standard in the Acura TLX. Not only is the significantly more expensive Lexus IS 250 equipped with a V6 that is less powerful and less fuel efficient than the TLX 4-cylinder but the Acura can be upgraded to to a 6-cylinder that produces nearly an extra 100 horsepower and is still more fuel efficient than the Lexus IS 250. This speaks volumes for the value provided by the Acura TLX. Drive by Continental Acura just east of Aurora, IL to learn more about the incredible value of the Acura TLX.

Continental Acura In Naperville, IL Knows Safety And Features

Whether the roads are clear and dry or icy and crowded, safety is an issue that should not be compromised. There is a considerable difference between these two vehicles when it comes to safety. Both vehicles have a variety of air bags, traction control, and anti-lock brakes that have become the norm across the industry but the true determination of safety comes with the results of crash tests. The IIHS has put both vehicles through a variety of demanding crash tests and found that not only did the Acura TLX outperform the Lexus IS 250, it outperformed most vehicles on the road to the degree of earning the highest Top Safety Pick Plus distinction which makes the Acura TLX one of the safest vehicles on the road.

A profound advantage with features is also held by the Acura TLX which comes standard with things like heated seats, memory seat and mirror position, as well as rear view camera. The Lexus IS 250 does not offer memory seat and mirror positions and only offers a rear view camera and heated seats as an additional upgrade which further widens the already significant price gap between the two vehicles. It is clear that the Acura TLX provides far greater value with these standard options included. The Lexus IS 250 even charges extra for a power moon roof which comes standard on the Acura TLX.
