Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Ford Fusion Hybrid 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura ILX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Ford Fusion Hybrid. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford Fusion Hybrid.

Dimensions
Since the Acura ILX is much slimmer than the Ford Fusion Hybrid, 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 Ford Fusion Hybrid.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura ILX has a much more powerful engine than the Ford Fusion Hybrid. 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 Acura ILX and the Ford Fusion Hybrid. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Acura ILX as you will in the Ford Fusion Hybrid.
