The 2017 Acura ILX should be a top contender on every Biloxi, Mississippi driver’s shopping list. We all want something with innovative features, plenty of passenger space, and a well-balanced fuel-efficient engine. The ILX provides drivers this and with budget-friendly price point; we’ve compared the vehicle side by side with the 2016 Lexus IS, a similar vehicle in the same segment.

Performance: A Close Call

At first glance, the 2017 Acura ILX and 2016 Lexus IS may appear similar. Both are equipped with a 2L I4 engine and all-season tires. However, here at Joe Bullard Acura, we found the ILX more efficient and better performing.

With a shorter wheelbase – 105.1 inches – the ILX can make sharper, perhaps more precise turns than the IS, which has a longer wheelbase at 110.2 inches. Fuel efficiency is also up with in a 2017 ILX, which boasts 25 mpg city and 35 mpg highway* while the IS can only get as high as 22 mpg city and 32 mpg highway.

Features Standout in an Acura ILX

The features department is where the 2017 Acura ILX is really able to show that it is able to provide drivers with much more than the competition. The ILX is able to provide drivers with more features than the IS and also offer upgraded variations of features on the IS. For example, the ILX comes equipped with standard features that the IS either lacks are available as costly upgrades. Features such as:

  • Rearview camera
  • Heated front seats
  • Noise cancellation technology
  • Remote trunk release

Which is Better?

While the 2016 Lexus IS provides drivers with its own set of features, the 2017 Acura ILX simply is the better deal here. With a price tag almost $10,000 lower than the Lexus IS, a higher crash test rating, and more passenger space the ILX, seems a good value. If you’re one of the many drivers who likes to stay within budget without compromising on your wants and needs, then the 2017 ILX is the vehicle for you.
