January 27th, 2016 by

2016 Acura TLX Blue >Not every entry level luxury sedan provides value equal to its price, which is why it is a worthy question— is the 2016 Lexus IS worth its price? It is advertised as a dynamic and stylish luxury sports sedan, but it doesn’t offer the same value that the 2016 Acura TLX delivers for its price. For the same amount of money, you can enjoy more power, state of the art driving dynamics not offered by the IS, and exclusive features that are only available for the TLX.

Exclusive Technologies Deliver Added Value
