Featuring a stylish and sleek exterior, the 2017 Acura TLX offers Orland Park drivers a striking ride that is bound to turn heads. With its clean lines and elegant body, the TLX epitomizes a luxury sedan, and it has the interior comforts and performance to match. Take a look at this side-by-side comparison of the TLX and the 2017 Lexus ES, then visit Joe Rizza Acura to take the luxurious TLX for a spin.


Boasting three powertrain options, the most powerful of which is a 3.5L V6 with a nine-speed transmission, the 2017 Acura TLX can generate 290 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque. This keeps the ride smooth – the TLX accelerates smoothly and holds its speed with ease. The power gives it a robust confidence, and you can really feel that strength behind the wheel. And with the available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®), the TLX can tackle any road with ease and grace. This makes it versatile and adaptable, and you will experience a luxurious ride no matter where you’re going. What’s more, the TLX guarantees this elegance by featuring qualities like an integrated dynamics system and an agile handling assist.

The 2017 Lexus ES is a powerful and comparable car, but it cannot match up to its peer. With a powerful 3.5L V6 engine, the ES delivers 268 horsepower. The ES does feature a longer wheelbase, but this reduces its turning radius, which actually prevents it from handling with the same precision as the TLX. The ES features a front-wheel drivetrain, which gives it an assured ride, but that lacks the versatility offered by the TLX’s all-wheel drivetrain.


Now let’s see what features each vehicle offers Tinley Park drivers. We’ll start with the 2017 TLX:

  • Perforated Milano leather-trimmed sports seats
  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • 10-speaker ELS Studio premium audio system
  • Smartphone integration, including Bluetooth handsfree link and Siri Eyes Free link
  • Collision mitigation breaking system
  • Adaptive cruise control

Next, we’ll take a look at the 2017 ES:

  • Perforated leather-trimmed seats
  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • Available 15-speaker audio system
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • Vehicle proximity notification system

Which Vehicle is Right for you?

The 2017 Lexus ES offers a competitive ride, but it is edged out in every key category by the superior 2017 Acura TLX. With more power, a more adaptable performance, and a higher-quality selection of interior features, the TLX offers the luxury experience that drivers deserve. For these reasons and more, the winner of this comparison is clear.
