2018 Acura ILX vs. 2018 Acura TLX

The 2018 Acura ILX and 2018 Acura TLX are two of the best luxury sedans in the country, but why should you buy one over the other? Both deliver luxury features, thrilling rides, and premium technology. But you should:

  • Look to the Acura ILX for efficiency and maneuverability
  • Look to the Acura TLX for space and standard safety

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.

Space and Size

Turning Radius

The 2018 Acura TLX is the larger vehicle, eminently suitable for longer drives from West Hartford to Manchester. The 2018 Acura ILX interior 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.
