In this article, we're going to show you the differences between these two luxury sedans.

After finishing this vehicle comparison, you'll know which vehicle is the right choice for you.

2017 Acura TLX vs 2017 Lexus ES 350 Power & Performance

Both sedans excel in their respective performances. The Acura TLX and the Lexus ES 350 both offer a respectful 3.5L V6 engine. The TLX V6 is paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission, offering more gear ratios than the 6-speed automatic equipped in the Lexus ES 350.

As far as performance goes, the 2017 Acura TLX and its V6 can deliver 290 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque. The Lexus ES 350, on the other hand, maxes out at 268 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque. The TLX features direct injection, a fuel delivery system that limits the amount of fuel wasted by giving the engine only the fuel it needs. In comparison, the Lexus ES 350 features sequential fuel injection, which works to reduce fuel waste, but isn't as effective as direct injection.

Entertainment & Technology

Both the Acura TLX and the Lexus ES 350 feature premium sound systems to provide superior listening to the driver and passengers. Each luxury sedan features a high-resolution touchscreen display, providing easy access when selecting your features. The Acura TLX and the Lexus ES 350 each come with an AM/FM radio and a CD player, and respective 3-month trial subscriptions to SiriusXM® Satellite Radio.

Luxury Sedan Style

The 2017 Acura TLX and the 2017 Lexus ES 350 both feature stylish and alluring body styles that really press upon their luxurious feel. But despite their similarities, there are noticeable differences with each vehicle's respective design. The Acura TLX features a more aggressive and sporty appearance with its more profound dual exhaust and commanding grille. The Lexus ES 350 simply resembles an average sedan.
