Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A3 than the Acura ILX, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Acura ILX and the Audi A3 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura ILX as you will with the Audi A3, 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).
