2017 Acura ILX vs. the 2017 Toyota Camry
Now available for drivers in the Westmont, Elmhurst, Chicago, and Naperville area, the 2017 Acura ILX is the luxurious and sporty coupe of the year. The ILX features impeccable handling, exciting power, and a selection of the latest and greatest in technological comforts and conveniences To illustrate how impressive the ILX is, we’ve compared it side-by-side with the 2017 Toyota Camry. Take a look for yourself, and see which of the two is the better buy.
How Does Each Car Drive?
Offering a 2.4L DOHC, 16-valve, four-cylinder direct injection engine with i-VTEC, the 2017 Acura ILX produces a robust 201 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. This makes for smooth acceleration, easily maintained speeds, and an overall graceful and intuitive ride. Its narrow 105.1-inch wheelbase ensures a tight turning radius, which means it can handle traffic with precision, accuracy, and nuance. Meanwhile, its MacPherson strut and multi-link suspension keeps the car stable and gripped to the road. Additionally, the ILX achieves a 25 mpg city* and 35 mpg highway* rating from the EPA, setting it even further ahead of its peers.
The 2017 Toyota Camry, on the other hand, maxes out at 24 mpg city* and 33 mpg highway*, according to EPA estimates. But that loss of fuel economy doesn’t come with greater power. With its 2.5L DOHC, 16-valve, dual VVT-i engine offering only 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque, the Camry is less powerful and less efficient than the ILX. What’s more, its 109.3-inch wheelbase makes the Camry longer than the ILX and less able to turn as sharply or precisely.
