2017 Acura ILX vs. 2016 Honda Civic Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The Honda Civic requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Acura ILX, making it more convenient to drive.

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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Honda Civic, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 Civic.

Dimensions
The Acura ILX is about the same width as the Honda Civic. When looking at overall length, the Acura ILX takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Honda Civic.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Acura ILX transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Honda Civic.

Handling
The Acura ILX has a larger turning radius than the Honda Civic, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura ILX and the Honda Civic. The Acura ILX has significantly less cargo room than the Honda Civic, 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 Civic.
