    Acura ILX vs Acura TSX

    Why did you buy the ILX over the TSX? I am curious to see. The TSX is $4000 more. Was price the only reason to not go for the TSX?

    The TSX is a fantastic car I will just go over what I like about my ILX over the TSX vs the TSX has over the ILX.

    The size, (subjective) I don't need a large car.. nor want one. The ILX actually fits my needs more than the TSX.. I was also looking for more fun.. the ILX delivers more fun because of it's lightweight driving attitude.

    The styling, INSIDE and OUTSIDE it just looks like a 2013 car whereas the TSX is starting to show its age amongst it's competition.

    THE TSX IS A GREAT CAR! But, my ILX 6-Speed is everything I wanted and it fits the bill.. the fun factor was REALLY important and the ILX has me enjoying every mile.

    I like the size of the ILX better. It's cheaper. The ILX suits my purposes and provides a comfortable ride. It also has better tech.

    I do agree with the TSX starting to show age.

    Check out this TSX vs ILX interior comparison. I like the ILX interior more in every way.

    Although there isn't a ton of differences I like how the TSX dash looks, especially that trim going from the passenger side A-pilar to the driver side A-pilar. It pulls together everything else below it nicely...much better than the ILX.

    But the ILX still looks good!

    I don't think anyone is a fan of that Analog information screen on top of the center stack on the TSX. Upgrading to the tech package is manadatory.

    I actually think the interior on the TSX is nicer. The leather is nicer. It has 60/40 folding rear seats.

    I like the ILX because it is smaller and easier to drive. Better mileage.

    I purchased the ILX due to the hybrid option. Absolutely love the ILX, but if the hybrid option wasn't available, I would have gone for the TSX.

    Shouldn't the ILX also be quicker? It is lighter. Both 2.4L 4 cylinder 6 speed.

    It is, quite a bit over the AT TSX and a bit than the MT

    I test drove both the TSX (2.4 AT) and the ILX (2.0 AT). I liked the ILX because of its size and
    good looks. I bought the 2.4 MT without even driving it. Couldn't be happier!
