Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Camry Hybrid than the Acura ILX, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Acura ILX and the Toyota Camry Hybrid in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Toyota Camry 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). The Acura ILX is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Camry 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 and the Toyota Camry Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Acura ILX is much slimmer than the Toyota Camry 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 Toyota Camry Hybrid.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura ILX is somewhat more powerful than the Toyota Camry Hybrid.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Acura ILX transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Toyota Camry Hybrid.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura ILX and the Toyota Camry Hybrid. The Acura ILX has significantly less cargo room than the Toyota Camry Hybrid, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Acura ILX than that of the Toyota Camry Hybrid.
