In brief: Nothing to choose

Both are bad in different ways.
Tobacco smoke predisposes to heart attacks, aggravates respiratory problems and may marginally increase the risk of cancers. Auto exhaust causes respiratory damage, carbon monoxide poisoning and depending on the type of exhaust may increase the risk of cancers.
