One of the first things you’ll notice when comparing Acura ILX vs Lexus IS is that the 2018 Acura ILX starts at MSRP $28,100* while the Lexus IS demands at least $38,210. Given the gulf between starting prices, it’s pretty galling to see how much more the Lexus will cost you in fuel:

  • Acura ILX EPA-estimated fuel efficiency at the base level: Up tp 25 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway.**
  • Lexus IS EPA-estimated fuel efficiency at the base level: Up to 22 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.

Acura ILX Technology vs. 2018 Lexus IS Technology

Both the Acura ILX and the Lexus IS call themselves luxury cars, but only the Acura lives up that promise by fitting the following high-end technology as standard:

  • Front Heated Seats
  • Noise/Sound Cancellation
  • Multi-View Rear Camera

From parking in tight spaces to staying warm during the dead of winter, the Acura pulls ahead. It even offers a GPS-linked, solar-sensing climate control system to adjust interior temperature based on external GPS readings.

Acura ILX Interior vs. Lexus IS Interior

The Acura ILX might be a compact sport sedan, but it seems spacious and open once you get inside, especially if you’ve just taken a test drive in the Lexus IS.

Trunk space is particularly generous. You’ll find up to 12.3 cubic feet vs. just 10.8 cubic feet in the Lexus. And that roomy cargo area doesn’t come at the cost of passenger space – there’s 34 inches of rear legroom in the Acura vs. just 32.2 inches in the Lexus. Whether you’re taking adults in the rear between Huntington and Dix Hills or packing anything from groceries to golf clubs in Commack, the Acura ILX offers superior everyday practicality.
