2014 Dodge Avenger vs. 2015 Acura ILX Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The Dodge Avenger will require fewer stops at 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Dodge Avenger will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Acura ILX. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Dodge Avenger will cost more in transportation costs than the Acura ILX.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Avenger is much wider than the Acura ILX, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Dodge Avenger, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Acura ILX.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Avenger has a much more powerful engine than the Acura ILX. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Dodge Avenger and the Acura ILX. The Dodge Avenger has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Acura ILX.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Avenger is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Acura ILX.
