Compare the 2016 Lexus ES Standard Features to an Acura

February 8th, 2016 by

2016 Acura TLXThe 2016 Lexus ES standard features are par for the course for many luxury sedans in the Wisconsin area, but we want to make sure you know you have other options. The 2016 Acura TLX, for instance, is in the same class as the Lexus sedan and has quite a bit more to offer drivers … and it does it with a significantly lower price tag.

  • The 2016 Lexus ES 350 is priced starting at $38,000 (MSRP).
  • The 2016 Acura TLX 2.4 8-DCT has a base price of just $31,695 (MSRP).*

Would you believe us that despite the lower price, the TLX has a range of features you won’t find on the Lexus? Let’s take a look.

The 2016 Acura TLX vs. the 2016 Lexus ES Standard Features

We put the 2016 Acura TLX and the 2016 Lexus ES 350 standard features side by side and noted where the advantages of the TLX lay. These are just a few of the features you’ll find on each 2016 TLX that are either unavailable on the Lexus ES 350 or require an upgrade:

  • Steering wheel–mounted paddle shifters
  • Driver-side memory adjustments for heating, air-conditioning, seat position, mirror position, and more
  • Speed sensing interval wipers
  • Heated front seating
  • Noise and sound cancellation

One of the other advantages we love about the TLX is that it gives drivers the choice of whether they want a 4-cylinder or a V6 engine. Not everyone wants or needs the power of a V6 on their sport sedan, and Acura lets you decide. Switching to the V6 gives the TLX a power boost that puts it ahead of the Lexus ES 350 on horsepower and torque, too. You’ll also be able to add on Acura’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) to the TLX V6 models for improved performance and traction.

Test Drive an Acura

We think we’ve made a strong case for the 2016 Acura TLX besting the 2016 Lexus ES 350 standard features, but the strongest case for the TLX requires a test drive. Visit a Wisconsin Acura Dealer near you today to get behind the wheel of the new TLX; if you’re not sure which of the two engines is the better option for you, we can put you behind the wheel of both the 2.4L 4-cylinder and the 3.5L V6 so you can make an informed decision.
