2018 Acura ILX vs. 2018 Acura TLX



The 2018 Acura ILX and 2018 Acura TLX are both solid options for luxury sedans, but why should you buy one over the other? Both offer a long list of interior features, thrilling rides, and premium technology. Here’s a quick glance at these Acura sedans:

  • The Acura ILX is the choice if efficiency and maneuverability are most important to you
  • If you’re looking for a little extra space and more standard safety features, the Acura TLX may be right for you

Read on to compare these two luxury sedans.

With slightly greater standard power, plus an available 3.5L V6 with 290 hp and 267 lb-ft and SH-AWD, the 2018 Acura TLX is plainly the more powerful vehicle. However, the Acura ILX possesses the vital agility of a smaller sedan, plus more attractive efficiency scores.

The 2018 Acura TLX is the larger vehicle, eminently suitable for longer drives from Fairfield to Bridgeport. The 2018 Acura ILX isn’t quite as roomy inside, but its tighter turning radius and shorter length make it a natural luxury sedan for those mostly stuck in the city.

Technology

Despite being the smaller vehicle, 2018 Acura ILX technology runs shoulder-to-shoulder with 2018 Acura TLX technology. Both include features such as speed-sensitive volume compensation, a multi-view rear camera, and dual-zone climate control, and both offer the same cutting-edge driver-assistance technology:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
  • Road Departure Mitigation System
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)

That said, only the 2018 Acura TLX provides those features as standard. With the 2018 Acura ILX, you’ll need to add the AcuraWatch Plus or Technology Plus package.
