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 power and standard safety

Read on to further compare these two luxury sedans.

Power and Efficiency

The base trim of the 2018 Acura TLX offers 206 hp to the ILX’s standard offering of 201 hp. 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 it gets 35 mpg on the highway* compared to the TLX’s more meager offering of 33 mpg*.

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.
