2017 Acura ILX vs. 2017 Audi A3: Compare Cars

As the luxury market grows, driving a car with a luxury badge has become as much a way of affirming you're on a path toward affluence and success as it is one that you’ve arrived. So it’s no surprise that most of the established luxury brands have extended their reach downward, to cars that aren’t just a little smaller but a bit more affordable, too.
