If you’re looking for a balanced sedan that’s perfect for daily driving, look no further than the 2017 Acura ILX. The 2017 ILX is able to provide Biloxi, Mississippi drivers with a balanced and fuel efficient powertrain, more passenger seating and space, and more features than imaginable. To show you just how great this vehicle is we’ve conducted a side by side comparison with the 2016 BMW 2 Series.


The 2017 Acura ILX aims to provide Daphne, Alabama drivers with a smooth ride that is just the right balance of powerful and efficient. The ILX’s 2.4L I4 engine does this easily by giving drivers the ability to reach up to 201 hp and maintain mileage as high as 25 mpg city and 35 mpg highway*. On the other hand, the 2016 BMW 2 Series provides drivers with a 2.0L I4 with 240 hp, a much more aggressive engine that may not be the best suited option for daily city driving. Furthermore, this unnecessary increase in power accounts for the hit that the vehicle takes in fuel efficiency coming in at only 22 mpg city.


When it comes to comparing features, it’s clear which vehicle is able to provide drivers with more. For a couple thousand dollars less than the BMW 2 Series, the Acura ILX is able to provide drivers with five passenger seating instead of four, more front and rear legroom, and plenty of standard features which the BMW lacks or only offers as an optional add-on. Some of these features include a power moonroof, voice activated controls for audio and Bluetooth devices, a rearview camera, heated front seats, standard noise cancellation, and LED headlights. The ILX even offers a better powertrain warranty of 72 months compared to the BMW’s 48 months.

Which is Better?

The 2017 Acura ILX easily come out on top in this comparison. By offering drivers access to such a wide array of performance, infotainment, and comfort enhancing features the ILX is able to provide more than the BMW is able to and do so for much less money. When all things are considered, there’s really no reason that you shouldn’t be adding the 2017 Acura ILX to your shopping list this very second.
