2015 Honda Civic 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 Honda Civic than the Acura ILX. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Honda Civic and the Acura ILX in the front seats.

Convenience
The Honda Civic 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). Based on MSRP, the Honda Civic is clearly a better financial choice over 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 Honda Civic carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Acura ILX.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Civic is much slimmer than the Acura ILX, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Honda Civic takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Acura ILX.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Honda Civic doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Acura ILX.

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

Performance
The Honda Civic has less horsepower than the Acura ILX, 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 Honda Civic and the Acura ILX. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Honda Civic as you will in the Acura ILX.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Civic is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Acura ILX.
