2020 Acura ILX vs Honda Accord


The 2020 Acura ILX and Honda Accord are perennial contenders in the midsize sedan sector. Both models provide a great driving experience and the best available technology. Both vehicles offer a reliable performance, comfort amenities, and numerous standard and available features that put the cherry on top.

However, when you have to choose one, which model should you go with? To help you come to this decision, our team at Boardwalk Acura put together this 2020 Acura ILX vs. Honda Accord comparison. Read on to find which sedan is the best fit for your drives around Egg Harbor, Atlantic City and Vineland.  

Acura ILX Performance

2020 Acura ILX vs 2020 Honda Accord: Performance

The 2020 ILX comes equipped with a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine mated to an 8-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission. It’s the perfect car for daily driving around town but handles highway driving well too. The engine and transmission combine to produce up to 201 horsepower. The 2020 Accord base engine is a 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder and provides 192 horsepower, slightly less power than the Acura ILX.

By upgrading to the Accord Touring, the top-tier trim level, the performance focuses more on power than fuel efficiency. In fact, the Honda Accord Sport and Touring trims achieve an EPA-estimated 22 city/32 highway MPG.1 However, the 2020 ILX provides the same fuel economy across the board: an EPA-estimated 24 city/34 highway MPG.2

Interior Comfort and Technology

When you’re out on the road, it’s nice to feel like you’re in a welcoming, safe environment. After all, many drivers spend a lot of time inside their vehicle, so it’s only right to feel comfortable and protected during your daily drives.

The ILX and Accord both offer a standard rearview camera, which displays a live feed of your immediate surroundings as you’re reversing out of a driveway or parking spot.

Bluetooth® technology is also standard in both cars. With the ability to play music and make hands-free phone calls, it helps keep you connected and entertained on the road. However, a few features separate the 2020 ILX from the Accord in terms of interior comfort. Heated front seats are standard in the interior of the Acura ILX, perfect for cold mornings and chilly nights—a feature not found in the standard Honda Accord. A moonroof also comes standard in the ILX, so you can let a little light into the cabin. Even though the Accord has an available moonroof, it doesn’t come standard.

Acura ILX Convenience

ILX vs Accord: The Little Things

The “little things” in a car can go a long way. From extra cup holders to ambient lighting and power outlets for charging—all standard in the Acura ILX—your drives become more enjoyable and convenient.

The standard paddle shifters in the 2020 ILX are a nice touch too. With paddle shifters, it’s easy to override the gear selection in your automatic transmission and shift without moving your hands off the steering wheel. This feature is available in the Accord, but it’s not standard.
