2.5-3.5 out of 5

Are you in the market for a luxury automobile, but you’re trying to decide between Lexus and Acura? A number of Union City customers have had the same Lexus vs. Acura conundrum. We think Lexus makes the superior vehicles, hands-downs. Lexus offers more variety, more reliability, and better style. To prove it to you, we’ve put together a detailed side by side Acura vs. Lexus comparison below.

Lexus vs. Acura – Variety

Everyone wants to have options. Our Peachtree City customers sure do. Fortunately, Lexus gives you options in spades, offering multiple models of sedans, SUVs, coupes, and performance cars (see the table above). Acura, on the other hand, just offers three sedans, two SUVs, and one performance vehicle. Do you want a hybrid? Lexus offers six of them, including SUVs and a performance car. But Acura limits your choice of hybrids to three. And if you’re interested in getting a coupe or convertible, you won’t find either one in the current Acura lineup. However, Lexus not only offers a convertible, but six different coupes.

Acura vs. Lexus – Reliability

J.D. Power released a study in early 2020 comparing the reliability of automobile brands, tabulating how many vehicles out of 100 reported problems over a span of three years. Overall, Lexus ranked better than any other auto brand except for Genesis. In fact, the Lexus ES ranked higher than any other vehicle in the 2020 study. Its score of 52 problems per 100 vehicles is the best ever recorded in the 31-year history of the study.

Acura, on the other hand, ranked 18th. It scored 136 problems out of 100 vehicles, which is worse than the industry average of 134. Lexus is the better choice if you don’t want to find yourself broken down along one of our Fayetteville roads.

Lexus vs. Acura – What the Critics Say

Critics like U.S. News and GoodCarBadCar have weighed in on the Acura vs. Lexus debate as well. And they’re pretty clear on who they think the winner is:

U.S. News

 “With more wins in head-to-head comparisons between individual categories and vehicle classes, Lexus comes out as the better brand…” [Regarding its comparison of the Lexus and Acura brands]


“Lexus’ dominance is all-consuming. Not only do Acura and Infiniti struggle against the might of Toyota’s luxury producer – so do German manufacturers Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz… Lexus offers more distinct models than Acura or Infiniti can muster.”
