In its upper trims, the Toyota Prius could be considered a rival to the ILX--especially the ILX Hybrid.
Yet with the Prius a hatchback and the ILX Hybrid a sedan, there's truthfully not much overlap.
The same is probably true for the Lexus CT 200h, which is a hatchback, but one like the ILX a model that earns a true luxury badge.
The 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.
The Audi A3 is yet another model that's only offered as a hatchback at this point, but an all-new A3 is on the way for 2015 and will also be available as a sedan.
