Acura vs Lexus: Compact Cars

2018 Acura MDX Performance Specs

Practicality and fuel economy are the main points to look for in a compact car between the 2018 Acura ILX and 2018 Lexus IS.

In the critical battle of fuel efficiency, the ILX proves better for your wallet and the environment with an EPA-estimated 25 MPG city and 35 MPG highway,1 while the Lexus IS only offers an EPA-estimated 22 MPG city and 32 MPG highway.

Midsize Cars

When it comes to midsize sedans, safety is of the utmost importance considering your daily work commutes and weekend errand driving.

The 2018 Acura TLX earned a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) because of its impressive standard safety features and solid crash test ratings.2 The 2018 Lexus GS however doesn’t offer any NHTSA safety ratings at this time.

Sports Cars

If you enjoy growling engines, car-like handling, and eye-popping design, then Acura has a little something for you in the 2018 NSX, while Lexus no longer makes its closest competitor, the LFA.

This road-searing sports car is powered by a bespoke Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ system that pushes the 3.5-liter V-6 twin-turbo generated 573 horsepower and 476 lb-ft of torque to the road.
