2016 Lexus GS vs. 2016 Acura TLX2016 Lexus GS vs. 2016 Acura TLX

If you’re in the market for a luxury midsize sedan, the 2016 Lexus GS and 2016 Acura TLX are both vehicles to consider.  The GS is known for its handling and luxurious interior, while the TLX gets praise for its quiet ride and smooth transmission.  However, when it comes to the finer points of these vehicles, which one comes out on top?

Interior & Design

Designed with only the highest quality materials, the 2016 Lexus GS will impress you as soon as you open the driver’s side door.  Once you sit down, you’ll quickly realize that the seats are as comfortable as they look, with plenty of leg room and adjustability to boot.  You will not get this same kind of luxury feel from the 2016 Acura TLX, but it’s still spacious, quiet and comfortable, except for the backseat headroom that can seem a little cramped.  As far as trunk space goes, the 2016 GS’ 14.3 cubic inches edges out the TLX’s 13.2 cubic inches.  The exterior of the GS is sleek and modern-looking, with a bold black grille adorning its front fascia.  In comparison, the TLX is slightly more standard looking, with only its Jewel Eye headlights giving it a bit of pop.

Technology & Safety

The 2016 GS features an infotainment system with 8-inch display and Remote Touch Controller and a 12-speaker surround stereo system.  The 2016 TLX comes up a bit behind in this arena as it has a somewhat confusing dual-screen infotainment system and 7-speaker stereo standard.  Both vehicles come standard with a rearview camera, but the GS adds blind-spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert.  In fact, safety features are a big draw to the 2016 Lexus GS, as it received outstanding ratings from the IIHS.  The TLX also received good ratings, except for the small overlap front test, where it scored a marginal rating.

Performance

Praised for its athletic handling and precision steering, the 2016 GS is extremely agile.  Under the hood, you’ll find a turbocharged four-cylinder engine in the GS 200t, a V6 in the GS 350 and a V8 in the new GS F.  The TLX has been praised for its smooth shifting and all-wheel steering system, but its standard four-cylinder engine does not provide as much power as the turbocharged GS.
