2015 Acura ILX vs. 2015 Hyundai Sonata Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Hyundai Sonata 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). Whether you pick the Acura ILX or the Hyundai Sonata, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Hyundai Sonata.

Dimensions
Since the Acura ILX is much slimmer than the Hyundai Sonata, 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 Hyundai Sonata.

Drivetrain
The Acura ILX has much less torque than the Hyundai Sonata, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
The Acura ILX has less horsepower than the Hyundai Sonata, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Acura ILX is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Sonata.
