2015 Acura ILX vs. 2014 Dodge Avenger Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Avenger than the Acura ILX, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Dodge Avenger will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Acura ILX.

Convenience
With the Dodge Avenger you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Acura ILX, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 ILX is somewhat more expensive than the Dodge Avenger. 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 ILX carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Avenger.

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

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Acura ILX doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Dodge Avenger.

Handling
The Acura ILX has about the same turning radius as the Dodge Avenger, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura ILX is significantly less powerful than the Dodge Avenger. 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 ILX and the Dodge Avenger. The Acura ILX has less cargo capacity than the Dodge Avenger, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Acura ILX than that of the Dodge Avenger.
