The Toyota Prius may seem an unlikely comparison car for the ILX, but it's priced around the same point, offers many of the same features, and, against the ILX Hybrid, offers far superior gas mileage.
The 2012 Buick Verano may be the ILX's closest natural competitor, aimed just as much at the entry-luxury market as the ILX, but with just one powertrain configuration and a somewhat more mature aesthetic.
The Camry Hybrid is actually a size up on the ILX, and can cost considerably more, but for young families looking at a hybrid sedan, might be a more useful all-around choice--with noticeably better gas mileage around town.
Lexus' HS 250h scores slightly worse on the gas mileage front than the ILX Hybrid, and offers a similar level of entry-luxury trim and features, but might appeal to those that don't enjoy Acura's styling.
Audi's A3 is also priced near the top of the ILX's range at its entry point, but offers a more refined look, Audi's brand recognition, and more dynamic performance while also adding the utility of a hatchback's cargo area.
