The hardware and software.

The ASA is built for firewalling, VPN and control whereas the router is built for, well, routing, though it has firewall and VPN capabilities it is at the cost of throughput. There isn´t very much difference in how they terminate the tunnels but more in how they each control it. Also as the ASA is built for VPN SSL/IPSEC it has some advantage over IOS when dealing with SSL VPN.
