2017 Acura ILX vs. 2016 Honda Accord Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Accord 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 Honda Accord in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Honda Accord 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 Honda Accord. 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 ILX is much higher than that for the Honda Accord.

Dimensions
Since the Acura ILX is much slimmer than the Honda Accord, 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 Honda Accord.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Acura ILX and the Honda Accord do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Acura ILX has a smaller turning radius than the Honda Accord, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura ILX is somewhat more powerful than the Honda Accord.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura ILX and the Honda Accord. The Acura ILX has significantly less cargo room than the Honda Accord, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

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