Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Acura ILX than in the Hyundai Accent, due to the Acura ILX's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Acura ILX and the Hyundai Accent in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura ILX as you will with the Hyundai Accent, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Hyundai Accent, which has a much lower MSRP.

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

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

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

Powertrain
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 Hyundai Accent.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura ILX and the Hyundai Accent.
