Acura TLX vs Lexus IS 300

Compare the Acura TLX, and Lexus IS 300 - Which Luxury Small Car Is Better?

When it comes to luxury, it is okay to be picky. With so many options available in the luxury car market, you can find any feature or detail of what you want in your new car, no matter how specific or refined. If you're in the market for this class, you've probably taken more than one glance at two of the leading options - Acura TLX and Lexus IS 300. If you're stumbled between the two, you're in luck.

We at Precision Acura of Princeton laid out the details of what's important in a luxury vehicle - not just premium materials and style, but optimal performance. Compare the models below.

Luxury Design Features

Luxury is not only seen but felt. Lexus IS 300 features synthetic leather upholstery, with some styling packages available. With Acura TLX offerings, however, including Milano leather upholstery, premium sound systems, moonroof, and heated, cushioned seating, you get the celebrity treatment you deserve.

Performance Features

When it comes to performance, the models come head to head, with one offering more power and the second offering better fuel economy. Acura TLX comes with a choice of base 206-horsepower four-cylinder engine and an available 290-horsepower V6. The model offers great fuel economy.

Lexus IS 300, on the other hand, comes with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 241 horsepower. While it may offer more horsepower at its base trim, the Lexus IS 300 is more expensive to drive, with poor fuel economy ratings. If we had to pick, we would go with the upgraded engine of the Acura TLX.
