Price and Performance

For those simply looking for an all-around versatile sedan complete with a long list of standard features, the ILX is probably the best decision.

However, the TLX – which has a starting price of $32,000 MSRP* – offers an upgrade to a V6 engine that produces 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. If you’re looking for more customizable performance features, the TLX is likely your best bet.
