Amongst entry-level luxury sedans, the Buick Verano is probably the closest competitor for the ILX in price and options, but it feels like a slightly more mature vehicle for shoppers even more concerned with comfort.
The Audi A3 and Mercedes-Benz CLA both cost slightly more than the ILX, but both offer a more robust suite of available options, drivetrains, and generally better driving dynamics.
However, well-equipped models of either easily exceed $40,000, which makes them less of a bargain.
The Lexus CT 200h offers the reliability and hybrid drivetrain that might be missed from the now-absent ILX Hybrid, though it's only available as a hatchback.
