2020 Acura ILX vs Honda Civic


Looking for a small car to help you scoot around the roads of Maple Shade, Moorestown, and Cherry Hill in style? You may find the luxury trappings of the 2020 Acura ILX very appealing—but then again, the 2020 Honda Civic is also quite sophisticated, especially at higher trim levels.

Which is the right ride for you? Our team at Elite Acura wants to help you choose with this 2020 Acura ILX vs. Honda Civic car comparison. Read it to discover the secrets behind both these chic cars’ style and give us a call if you have any questions!

Acura ILX Design

2020 ILX vs Civic: Luxe Exterior Features

The 2020 ILX and 2020 Civic each look incredibly sharp from the outside, with available rear spoilers and sporty wheel designs. The Civic features 17-inch wheels, while the ILX uses larger, 18-inch wheels.

The Civic offers available LED headlamps with an Auto On/Off feature. Besides being convenient, they last longer than traditional bulbs and run more efficiently—and they complement the distinctive “C”-shaped LED taillamps at the back.

However, they’re no match in style for the ILX’s Jewel Eye® LED headlights, which mimic natural sunlight with seven LED projectors on each side. These bulbs create a signature look, but they also produce intense, focused beams of light to help you see colors more brilliantly and reduce nighttime fatigue.

Acura ILX Technology

Technology Features with You in Mind

If technological excellence is measured by capabilities, both the Acura ILX and Honda Civic have a running start here. Both offer features like dual-zone automatic climate control, which lets the driver and front passenger each custom-set the temperature for their seating “zones.” However, this feature is standard in the ILX, and not in the Civic.

The Honda infotainment system and the Acura On Demand Multi-Use Display™ (ODMD™) 2.0 look similar in the lowest-level trims of the Civic and ILX, with a 5-inch display screen.

However, only the ILX’s 8-inch touchscreen is part of a dual-screen package that displays navigation on the top display screen and audio controls on the bottom touchscreen. The Civic lacks any dual-screen option: You’ll have to make do with one screen for all your functions.

Acura ILX Performance

Powerful Performance Specs

On the face of it, the 2020 ILX and Civic look very similar. They both use front-wheel drive (FWD) and have 4-cylinder engines, generating plenty of power to keep them moving. The Civic’s base engine is the 1.5L 4-cylinder, which delivers a robust 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque.

However, the ILX’s base engine squeaks ahead. Its 2.4L 4-cylinder produces up to 201 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque, giving you a bigger boost when you need to merge or pass on the highway. Its standard 8-speed dual-clutch transmission allows lightning-quick gear changes and smooth shifting, setting it a step above the Civic’s available 6-speed manual transmission.

2020 Acura ILX vs Honda Civic: Choosing Your Small Car

There’s no questioning the fact that the ILX and Civic really stand out as incredible small cars that can get you where you need to go with style and efficiency.

As our car comparison shows, the 2020 Acura ILX vs. Honda Civic head-to-head yields only one winner if power, connectivity, and premium exterior features are your primary concerns.

If the 2020 ILX stands out to you, feel free to schedule a test drive for some firsthand experience. You can do it here at Elite Acura, your dealer serving Maple Shade, Moorestown, and Cherry Hill. We look forward to working with you!
