ILX vs Altima: Performance
While the Nissan Altima drives smoothly, its doesn’t offer the same thrill driving that you’ll have behind the wheel of the Acura ILX. The 2020 ILX comes powered by a 201 horsepower 2.4L 4-cylinder engine, while the Altima has a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that only generates 188 horsepower.
The Continuously Variable Transmission of the 2020 Altima will provide smooth acceleration, but it doesn’t deliver power quite as quickly as the 8-speed dual-clutch transmission found in the Acura ILX. This also features a torque converter for a smooth launch when the light turns green, as the dual clutches provide lively acceleration.
A Comfortable and Stylish Ride
Taking a look inside these two cars, you’ll immediately notice some differences. The Altima is a spacious sedan, but not quite as stylish as the 2020 Acura ILX. With the ILX, you’ll sit comfortably on the leatherette-trimmed sport seats.
Make adjustments to your seat’s position eight different ways with the push of a button and even turn on their heated feature for more warmth when driving. You’ll also have power lumbar support in the 2020 ILX that keeps you comfortable however long of a drive you have.
The 2020 Altima also comes standard with an 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat, but that doesn’t include standard power lumbar support like the ILX does. You’ll also need to upgrade trim levels to get heated front seats as well.
Acura ILX vs Nissan Altima: Technology
Within either car, you can stream music from your phone or listen to your favorite podcast. The Acura ILX, though, gives you a better listening experience thanks to technology like Active Sound Control. This essentially works like noise-canceling headphones to give you exceptional sound quality that can be clearly heard throughout the cabin.
They each also come with various driver-assistive technologies. This includes systems standard in both cars that can help you avoid a frontal collision by alerting you when you start to get too close to the car in front of you and even apply the brakes if you don’t react quickly enough.
The 2020 Acura ILX even comes standard with additional safety features like Road Departure Mitigation System, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Lane Keeping Assist System.
