You have the option to upgrade your TLX to run on a 3.5L V6 engine that produces 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. That is enough power to let you comfortably commute through West Haven – as well as play with the performance and have a little fun. The strongest engine available for the ES 350 also happens to be a 3.5L V6, but it can only produce 268 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque.

Fuel Economy

Just because you like to enjoy your drive doesn’t mean you want to thoughtlessly burn through a lot of gas. The 2018 Acura TLX makes it easy to travel efficiently and economically through Stratford thanks to fuel-efficiency ratings of 23 mpg city and 33 mpg highway with the base inline-4 P-AWS 2.4L engine.** The 2017 Lexus ES 350 requires a lot more fuel to get you to the same destination due to fuel-efficiency ratings of only 21 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.

There are a number of standard features that help the 2018 TLX feel like a true luxury vehicle. These include heated and height-adjustable front seats, noise/sound cancellation technology for a quieter cabin, and a front armrest storage space to help cut down on clutter. None of these features come standard on the 2017 Lexus ES 350, and in some cases, they are not available even at a higher trim level.
