Acura ILX Performance

Performance Capabilities

Let’s not beat around the bush. When it comes to performance, your commute in the 2020 Acura ILX will be far more exciting than if you choose to drive the Audi A3. That’s because the ILX is equipped with a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine. The A3, on the other hand, is only paired with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine.

The extra displacement of the Acura ILX makes it possible for this sedan to have a higher horsepower fueling your commute. Comparing the horsepower of the 2020 Acura ILX vs. Audi A3, the ILX has 201 horsepower and the A3 only has 184.

Additionally, you’ll find that shifting gears is much easier in the ILX because it comes with an 8-speed transmission. The Audi A3 only has a 7-speed transmission. This means you’ll have a smoother commute than you would with the Audi A3.

Standard Safety Features

Before you pile your family into your sedan, you want to make sure it can handle the unpredictable roads. You’ll be happy to know that both the 2020 Acura ILX and 2020 Audi A3 received a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).1

While both vehicles received this rating, you’ll find that not all safety features are alike. While you’ll find a Collision Mitigation Braking System™ and Forward Collision Warning on both sedans, that’s where the similarities end between the two standard systems.

Features you’ll find standard with the Acura ILX include:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Lane Departure Warning System
  • Road Departure Mitigation System

Drivers who want a comprehensive safety suite that comes standard with your sedan will only find that with the Acura ILX.
