Most Somerset drivers would assume the Lexus ES would come with more power, but that’s not true. Although both models come standard with a 3.5L DOHC V6 engine, the Acura TLX delivers more standard power compared to the competition. The Acura offers a nine-speed automatic transmission, and the engine also generates 290 hp. If you’re interested in the Lexus, you’ll only receive a six-speed automatic transmission, and this model only generates 268 hp. The new Acura TLX is the model to choose when power is something you crave.

No Hunterdon driver wants to spend their time at the gas station, so it’s important to choose a model that offers the best type of efficiency. The Lexus ES does a pretty decent job, as it offers an EPA-estimated 21* city and 30* highway mpg. However, when making the most out of your miles is something you really want to experience, opt for the Acura TLX, which offers an EPA-estimated 21 city and 34 highway mpg.

It would make sense for a luxury model to come standard with all the conveniences you desire, but the Acura TLX actually delivers more standard features and amenities compared to the Lexus ES. For starters, this model comes standard with heated front seats, which you’ll have to pay extra for on the Lexus. It also comes standard with a multi-view rearview camera (the Lexus only has a single-view camera) as well as Hill Start Assist, which isn’t even available on the ES.
