The 2019 Acura ILX and the 2019 Honda Civic Sedan are both remarkable vehicles that offer drivers a dynamic and spirited performance on the road as well as an impressive fuel economy. Drivers who are considering the top-tier Civic Sedan Touring model may also want to consider jumping to the Acura ILX mid-level Premium Package. The two models are close in price but with the ILX drivers will get more power behind the wheel, longer warranty coverage, and more features inside the cabin.


For drivers who want more power on the road, consider opting for the Acura ILX, with up to 201 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. The ILX will make trickier driving situations, such as merging or passing on the highway, much easier. The Civic Sedan is still comparably powerful in the class but produces only up to 174 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque.


The ILX also comes with a more comprehensive warranty with a basic warranty that covers 48 months and 50,000 miles and a powertrain warranty of 72 months and 70,000 miles. The Civic basic warranty will end sooner with 36 months of basic coverage and 36,000 miles. The Civic’s powertrain warranty will extend to 60 months and 60,000 miles.

Features Inside

Car and Driver says the updated styling of the ILX has its exterior “looking sporty and fresh”, and inside drivers will find more audio and seating features that the Civic doesn’t bring to the table.
