2014 Acura TSX vs. 2015 Toyota Prius v Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Prius v 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 Toyota Prius v a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Acura TSX will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota Prius v, making it more convenient to drive.

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). The Acura TSX is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Prius v. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Acura TSX is much higher than that for the Toyota Prius v.

Dimensions
Since the Acura TSX is much wider than the Toyota Prius v, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Acura TSX, which is slightly longer than the Toyota Prius v.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Acura TSX does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Prius v.

Handling
The Acura TSX has about the same turning radius as the Toyota Prius v, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura TSX has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Prius v. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher 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 Toyota Prius v. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Acura TSX as you will in the Toyota Prius v.

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