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

Convenience

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 Hyundai Sonata carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Acura ILX.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Hyundai Sonata does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Acura ILX.
