2019 Acura ILX Chicago IL

Looking for a stylish sedan but don’t know what the best option on the market is? An important step in the car purchasing or leasing process is comparison shopping. 

To help with this step, explore our comparison of two popular cars: the Acura ILX and the Honda Accord.

How the 2019 Acura ILX Stacks Up Against the 2019 Honda Accord

If you want a car that’ll stand out on the road, the new Acura ILX has you covered. This compact sports sedan lives up to this designation with its sleek athletic aesthetic. 

The smooth lines and sculpted hood of this sedan exudes a sense of luxury. This premium look is exemplified by the front end, where a Diamond Pentagon front grille and 7-LED Jewel Eye headlights sparkle on the road.

This sedan backs up its style with substance. It offers the impressive combination of nimble, agile handling and the power of a 201-horsepower i-VTEC® engine. But don’t worry — safety is also a priority in this vehicle, which shows in its 5-Star NHTSA rating

How does the 2019 Honda Accord compare? 

While you can enjoy some of the sportiness and power of the Acura ILX with the Accord, it comes at a price. That’s right — you have to choose the higher Sport trim level to enjoy similar style and performance features. The other option is to pay extra for fashion-inspired accessories.

But let’s take a step back and compare the standard Honda Accord with the Acura ILX. The Accord’s 1.5L VTEC® turbocharged engine only offers 192 horsepower. And a 6-speed manual transmission is only available on the Sport trim, while Acura’s 8-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) is standard across all trims.
