Acura ILX vs. Acura TLX: The Bottom Line

You’ve compared the Acura ILX vs. Acura TLX, but which model is actually right for you? Here’s what you should consider if you’re still trying to make a decision:

  • Choose the Acura TLX if you want to maximize your trunk space. Although the TLX offers more hip room and shoulder room, both models offer similar legroom. That means your passengers should be comfortable with either option.
  • If efficiency and value are your top concerns, you might prefer the Acura ILX to the Acura TLX. Although both models are great options in their respective segments, the more affordable ILX is likely to be the top choice for drivers who want luxury on a budget.
  • Standard Precision All-Wheel Steer™ and available Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ make the TLX a better choice for performance enthusiasts. If you want to experience the San Diego and Vista with the best that Acura can offer, it’s probably the right sedan for you.
  • These Acura sedans receive near-identical arrays of safety and driver assistance features, but the larger TLX enjoyed a little more success during its NHTSA crash testing. It earned five stars for its overall Frontal Crash performance, and five stars in rollover collisions. The ILX earned four stars in both categories.
