2020 ILX Model Review in Chamblee, GA
When it comes to Acura sedans, the 2020 ILX is the lowest starting price point of them all, starting at $25,900*. After having undergone an entire ground-up revamp in 2019, it returns this year without much need for updates. Among luxury sedans, it is one of the most well-priced and holds its own even among its fellow Acura companions. Its biggest competitor, the Civic, can’t quite compare to the ILX’s extravagance. Its single trim doesn’t allow for much customization or choice, but this sedan is a great choice for anyone seeking to combine cushy comfort and practical performance. Here’s how it holds up to other Acura sedan models coming out this year.
2020 ILX vs 2020 TLX
The 2020 TLX is the next step up in the Acura sedan price range by a few thousand dollars. The most notable difference is that the TLX offers more customization options, though they are still limited due to the luxurious nature of the vehicle. The TLX offers two engine types and two drivetrains, allowing for very different experiences based upon whether or not the driver chooses a four-cylinder or front-wheel-drive.
When comparing the TLX’s standard four-cylinder engine to the ILX, the ILX takes the lead in fuel economy, but only just. You’ll find that both models lower rear seat space for front seat comfort, though not to an uncomfortable degree. Most notably, in safety, the ILX offers more immediate features. You have access to the blind-spot monitoring system, while the TLX hides this feature behind its Technology package.
2020 ILX vs 2020 RLX
The biggest difference between these two sedan models is the price range, where the 2020 ILX starts at $25,900* and the RLX starts at $54,900*. This can reach a disparity of up to $20,000. The RLX does offer a hybrid model, which hikes the price up even more. You’ll be surprised to discover, though, that the ILX’s luxury factor is not outshined by the RLX, which prides itself upon extravagance. While the RLX definitely leads the race, if you’re willing to make a few sacrifices, the ILX will serve you just fine. For example, the RLX offers three-zone climate control, while the ILX offers just two zones. It’s not a huge difference and it’s one that most can live without if they’re seeking a competitively priced luxury sedan.
Safety features for the RLX aren’t hidden behind a package wall, so there’s no need to worry about that. However, you may want to consider that the ILX outdoes the RLX in terms of fuel economy. This isn’t true for the RLX’s hybrid form, of course, but its standard model guzzles about 20 mpg city and 29 mpg highway. Comparatively, the ILX does 24 mpg city and 34 mpg highway.
