The tsx is a little cheaper and has the same hp from a 2.4 4cyl. The lexus is really a toyota, get slightly worse gas mileage and has 2 more cylinders. But it does come six speed and all wheel drive. I think the is250 looks more aggressive and finished. Lexus is synonymous with luxury. If you have the extra 3-7 grand get the is250. If you value performance over comfort get the Acura.

In reliability, the Acura is a bit better, but both are better than average.If you want a very quiet and smooth ride, go with the lexus.If you want a Sporty, but smooth and quiet ride, go with the Acura.I would prefer the Acura because it is more fun to drive and safer.The Lexus is RWD, which means it is impossible to drive in snow and dangerous in rain.The Acura is FWD, so it is alot safer.Both cars have around 200-215HP.

Here's my feedback on the IS250 and the TSX. Both cars are manual with Navi. The navigation on both are easy to use and have similar menu and setup features. The graphics on the Lexus are gorgeous. Reminds me of have a mini MAC on board. The TSX navi is clear and easy to use and the TSX navi has a larger screen For day to day driving the TSX is easier to view. Although hats off to the cool icons in the Lexus. The stereo in both cars are good with the advantage to the Lexus in overall sound quality. The sound is crystal clear! Seats in the lexus are much softer than the TSX, and at times too soft, while the seats in the TSX are firmer, maybe too firm. So, it's a toss up for me. The guages and overall cabin in the lexus is more refined with a fit and finish second to none. The visibility in the TSX is far better and making a lane change in the Lexus requires some serious neck turning, and even after straining my neck I was still not sure if I was going to side swip someone. The TSX is not as refined inside, but is not far behind. TSX cabin feels quite a bit larger and if your 6', like me, the Lexus feels a bit too snug (but not uncomfortable in the front). Ok, onto driving. The lexus is so quiet and smoothe, you wonder if the car is actually on. The car handles very well, but lacks the fun factor for me. Taking the TSX from about 3800rpm to 7000 is about as fun as it gets for the 200hp range. The TSX engine is quiet but has a thick throaty sound I love. So, if you want luxury silky smoothe, go with the Lexus, if you want a smoothe growl, go with the TSX. The lexus suspension is amazing, and you soaks up the bumps like a sponge, while the TSX has a firmer ride. Somewhere in between would be best for me. Almost forgot!If you heard that the Lexus has no back seats - it's true. Maybe someone 5'3" can fit in the back, but you're not going on any 2 hour rides in the Lexus with 4 people (unless it's a smurf family). The TSX back seats are good for even a 6' footer in the back with a 6' footer in the front. Overall, I would not trade my TSX for the Lexus, if I personally owned em!! So, dazzzzz it! Would love to hear what others think about either car.
