2014 Acura ILX Hybrid vs. 2014 Acura TSX Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The Acura TSX requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Acura ILX Hybrid, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura ILX Hybrid will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Acura TSX. 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 Hybrid and the Acura TSX have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Acura ILX Hybrid is much slimmer than the Acura TSX, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Acura ILX Hybrid is slightly shorter than the Acura TSX, which may make it easier to park.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura ILX Hybrid is significantly less powerful than the Acura TSX. 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 Hybrid and the Acura TSX. The Acura ILX Hybrid has significantly less cargo room than the Acura TSX, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Acura ILX Hybrid comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Acura TSX.
