Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Insight than the Acura ILX, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Acura ILX, drivers may find the Honda Insight a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Honda Insight requires fewer visits to 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). The Acura ILX is somewhat more expensive than the Honda Insight. 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 and the Honda Insight have similar Destination Charges.

Handling
The Acura ILX has a larger turning radius than the Honda Insight, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.
