lexus is obviously better its rwd and has a v6. more fun to drive then the tsx for sure. as far as fast, they're both pretty even and both pretty slow. get the IS350 and you'll never look back.

I would say the Acura is better. The Acura has the best resale value out of all the cars in its class. It has Front wheel drive so it is safer in rain and snow. The Acura is also more fun to drive because it is not too quiet or too smooth like the Lexus.Lexus are the most quiet and smoothest riding cars so they are boring to drive. The Lexus is RWD so it is impossible to drive in snow and dangerous in rain.They are both luxury Sports sedans, but the Acura looks and feels more sportier. And it is more reliable.

You get a lot more torque out of the V6 Lexus than the I4 of the Acura. The engine is also mated to the rear wheels on the IS250. From a dig the TSX gets owned but from a 30+ roll the TSX has a chance. If you are getting a stick shift don't even consider the Acura. Their transmissions are made of glass.If you are concerned about the RWD then worry not. Nowadays with traction control and stability (yaw) control you won't have any trouble in the snow.
