It’s easy to see why many drivers are reticent to compare Acura ILX vs. Honda Accord. After all, the Acura ILX is a model firmly in the luxury class, while the Honda Accord is not. That said, stepping up from the fantastic midsize sedan foundation created by the Honda Accord to the added luxuries of the Acura ILX isn’t unfeasible for most when you compare prices:

  • 2020 Acura ILX Premium Package: Priced at $27,750 MSRP*.
  • Honda Accord EX CVT: Priced at $27,920 MSRP.

So, which Acura is the Accord most likely to come out against? Find out by comparing it with the ILX.

ILX vs. Accord: Performance

The Honda Accord does an excellent job balancing refined performance with outstanding efficiency scores, but it doesn’t quite match the thrilling ride afforded by a more performance-oriented vehicle like the new Acura ILX. Here’s how the Acura ILX Premium Package engine compares against that of the Honda Accord EX CVT:

  • 2020 Acura ILX: A 2.4L four-cylinder makes up to 201 hp.
  • 2020 Honda Accord: A 1.5L four-cylinder makes up to 192 hp.

Whether traveling on the highway into Manhasset or navigating stop-start Garden City traffic, that added pep makes itself known. The Acura is also the only one of the two with a Dual-Clutch Transmission – it preloads the next gear up and down to ensure seamless power delivery.

ILX vs. Accord: Interior Features

The Acura ILX Premium Package isn’t just able to outpace the Honda Accord EX CVT when it comes to power. You’ll also find yourself enjoying creature comforts that aren’t available with that Accord trim level, including:

  • Leather-Trimmed Seats
  • Driver’s Seat Memory Adjustment
  • Leather Wrapped Steering Wheel
  • 4-Way Power Passenger Seat

Those features make for an indulgent experience even when you’re stuck in Glen Cove traffic, and they’re backed by the following tech features you also won’t get with the Honda Accord EX CVT:

  • Voice Activated Controls for Audio and Bluetooth® Wireless Enabled Devices
  • Universal Garage Door Opener
