Both the 2017 Acura TLX and the 2017 Acura ILX feature the kind of elegant and sophisticated sedan experiences that Elmhurst drivers deserve. Featuring a selection of unique features, each car is optimized for different kinds of drivers, and each one is better suited to varying preferences. Take a look at this side-by-side comparison, and then test drive each sedan at McGrath Acura of Westmont to find out which one is ideal for you.


With its 109.3-inch wheelbase, the new Acura TLX features a spacious interior cabin — perfect for those long Chicago commutes. Its all-wheel drivetrain makes it a versatile sedan, and it’s as at home in the suburbs or on the highway as it is in the city. Its powerful 2.4L 16-valve DOHC engine generates 206 horsepower. Overall, this makes for a robust and nuanced ride that is perfect for longer drives. Its body is built specifically for a stable and effortlessly graceful experience, which is just what the Acura TLX delivers.

The new Acura ILX, on the other hand, boasts a sportier ride. Its shorter 105.1-inch wheelbase allows it a tighter turning radius, so it handles more sharply and with more precision. Its high-performance all-season tires means it operates at peak performance year round, and its front-wheel drivetrain gives it a confident and assured feel behind the wheel. Its 201 horsepower 2.4L 4-cylinder engine delivers nearly as much raw power as the Acura TLX; however, with a lighter body, the Acura ILX gets more mileage out of this horsepower.
