The 2020 Acura ILX vs. 2020 Honda Accord

Two Impressive Vehicles … But Only One Can Come Out on Top

For years, the Honda Accord has been seen as one of the most trusted, reliable vehicles on the open road … to the point where many wondered why competing brands would even try to top it. But the good news is, Acura DID try, and with the 2020 Acura ILX, it is beyond clear that the famous automaker is up to the task of giving the Honda Accord a genuine run for its money. Stop by Spitzer Acura McMurray and schedule your test drive today to get behind the wheel of the new 2020 Acura ILX.


In a direct head-to-head comparison, the 2020 Acura ILX handily beats the Honda Accord in the category that matters most: performance. The 2020 Acura ILX comes complete with a 2.4L inline four-cylinder standard engine, and the highest engine upgrade you can choose is a 290 horsepower 3.5L V6. This is compared to the 1.5L turbocharged inline four-cylinder standard engine on the Honda Accord, with the highest engine upgrade being a modest 252 horsepower V6.

Interior Design and Additional Features

In terms of the actual comfort and convenience of the models, the 2020 Acura ILX once again comes complete with a variety of standard features that are NOT present on its competitor. For the sake of discussion, we’ll limit this to only those features that are standard on the Acura.

In addition to heated front seats, the 2020 Acura ILX offers a leather steering wheel, driver lumbar support and incredible leatherette seats. The 2020 Acura ILX even offers a seven-speaker sound system as a standard feature, while the Honda Accord can only muster four speakers.

In terms of sheer peace of mind, the 2020 Acura ILX also comes out ahead of its rival. It offers a four-year/50,000-mile basic warranty and an impressive six-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty. This is as opposed to the three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty on the Honda Accord, and the five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty.

At this point, you have to ask yourself, if you’re looking for a new car and all of these things are important to you, why would you ever consider anything else?
