Acura Sedans vs. Lexus Sedans

If you’re looking for the perfect introductory model, you can choose from Acura sedans like the Acura ILX and TLX. When you compare these two options to the four Lexus sedan packages, you’ll benefit from two Acura lineups that offer competitive pricing along with the right luxury features you’re looking for. If you’re interested in a particular Lexus sedan, you may have to stretch your wallet a bit more. Compare the starting prices of Acura sedans vs. Lexus sedans below:

Acura Sedans

  • Acura ILX: Starting Price of $25,900 MSRP*
  • Acura TLX: Starting Price of $33,000 MSRP*

Lexus Sedans

  • Lexus IS: Starting Price of $38,560 MSRP
  • Lexus ES: Starting Price of $39,900 MSRP
  • Lexus GS: Starting Price of $51,065 MSRP
  • Lexus LS: Starting Price of $75,450 MSRP

Acura SUVs vs. Lexus SUVs

If you prefer the versatility, space, and power of a luxury SUV or crossover, you’ll have plenty of strong options among the Acura RDX and MDX. The RDX provides you with an enhanced experience compared to your standard five-passenger SUV, and the MDX takes things to the next level with third-row seating, a strong towing capacity, and plenty of advanced features. While there are few more Lexus SUVs for you to choose from, they continue to spike higher and higher in price, and you can still upgrade to impressive luxury trim packages in the RDX or MDX lineup without going over budget.

Lexus vs Acura: Warranty Coverage and Reliability

Another area where you’ll want to compare the Lexus vs. Acura lineups is the warranty coverage they offer you, so you can feel confident that your vehicle is protected at all times on Buda roads. No matter which luxury model you select from Acura or Lexus, you’ll have a reliable New Vehicle Limited Warranty that lasts 4 years or 50,000 miles, as well as a Powertrain Limited Warranty that provides coverage for up to 6 years or 70,000 miles, whichever comes first. However, Acura customers can choose from additional new vehicle warranties not available to Lexus customers such as:
