Acura ILX vs Honda Civic
There’s a lot for Pennsylvania drivers to consider when they’re deciding between the Acura ILX and the Honda Civic. That’s why our Sussman Acura team has created this car comparison for our customers from Jenkintown, Abington, and Lower Southampton Twp. Check it out and then contact us with any questions.
2020 Acura ILX vs 2020 Honda Civic: Performance
The 2020 Acura ILX is a high-performing compact sport sedan. Its 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine is capable of kicking out up to 201 horsepower at 6,800 RPM, and 180 lb-ft of torque at 3,600 RPM. This is with an efficiency-promoting Intelligent Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (i-VTECÒ) system that also lets it achieve EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 24 city/34 highway/28 combined MPG.1
On the other hand, the 2020 Honda Civic model’s standard engine isn’t nearly as impressive. With only 2.0 liters of displacement, it barely manages to produce 158 horsepower at 6,500 RPM. But it is quite efficient.
2020 Acura ILX vs 2020 Honda Civic: Style & Design
Furthermore, the 2020 Acura ILX is as stylish as it is powerful. For example, with its available A-Spec® Package, you’ll enjoy supercar-influenced highlights such as an Acura Diamond Pentagon grille, a gloss black rear decklid spoiler, and interior Ultrasuede-trimmed upholstery. Plus, it comes in some cool colors:
- Exterior Colors. Some of its best-looking available exterior paint jobs include Platinum White Pearl, Lunar Silver Metallic, Modern Steel Metallic, Majestic Black Pearl, and Performance Red Pearl, among others.
- Interior Colors. And, on the inside, there’s Espresso, Graystone, Ebony, and more. You should reach out to our teammates to discover the exterior and interior colors for the models we currently have in stock.
The 2020 Honda Civic is also a stylish car, but it doesn’t quite measure up. For example, while it does have a sporty grille, it’s not nearly as unique or iconic as the Acura Diamond Pentagon grille that we mentioned above. Additionally, although some of its available colors are truly nice (such as Crystal Black Pearl and Rallye Red), they really can’t compare to what the ILX offers. Finally, let’s take a quick look at technology.
2020 Acura ILX vs 2020 Honda Civic: Technology
This is one department where these two vehicles actually match up pretty well. Both offer available Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration, which lets you access your compatible smartphone’s most important apps while you’re on the road. They also both offer premium sound systems, including the ILX model’s ELS Studio® Premium Audio System—10+ speakers will pump your life’s personal soundtrack as you drive.
