Is the 2016 Lexus ES 350 Price Worth It?
If you are looking at the 2016 Lexus ES 350 price and wondering if you can find a more affordable luxury sedan in the Chicagoland area, you’re not alone. Chicagoland Acura Dealers has had many drivers come to us with the same questions, and we point them all to the 2016 Acura TLX. The TLX replaced two outgoing Acura models and has more than enough going for it to take on their competitors, including the Lexus ES series.
Believe in Affordable Luxury
For many drivers, the ideas of a luxury car and an expensive car overlap significantly, but it’s important to find a sedan that truly delivers on value, discovering one that gives you a high level of comfort and technology without bearing the typical price boost that comes with a luxury sedan.
- The 2016 Acura TLX 8-Spd DCT is priced at $31,695 (MSRP)* and earns an EPA-estimated 35 highway and 24 city mpg** thanks to its peppy but efficient 2.4L 4-cylinder engine.
- The 2016 Lexus ES 350 price starts at $38,000 and only starts to climb higher when you move to equip it with features like the standards of the TLX. And it only manages 31 highway and 21 city mpg.
You might expect the Lexus to have a better package of standard features to go along with its high price, but there are actually amenities that come on every TLX that are either unavailable or that Lexus requires an upgrade for, including:
- Driver-side memory adjustments
- Noise/sound cancellation
- Heated front seating
- Paddle shifters
The Lexus ES 350 certainly comes closer to the TLX than many of Acura’s other competitors, but at the end of the day, the TLX simply gives drivers more of the latest features and more choices.
Test Drive a TLX
One of the biggest advantages of the 2016 Acura TLX is found under the hood: You have the choice of either a 4-cylinder or a V6 engine depending on what you’re looking for out of your new car.
