2014 Acura TSX vs. 2015 Ford Taurus Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Taurus than the Acura TSX, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Acura TSX, drivers may find the Ford Taurus a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura TSX as you will with the Ford Taurus, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura TSX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Ford Taurus. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura TSX will cost more in transportation costs than the Ford Taurus.

Dimensions
Since the Acura TSX is much slimmer than the Ford Taurus, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Acura TSX, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Taurus.

Drivetrain
The Acura TSX has much less torque than the Ford Taurus, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Acura TSX has a smaller turning radius than the Ford Taurus, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura TSX is significantly less powerful than the Ford Taurus. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura TSX and the Ford Taurus. The Acura TSX has significantly less cargo room than the Ford Taurus, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Acura TSX than that of the Ford Taurus.
