2020 Acura ILX vs. Its Competition

2020 Acura ILX
Byron Hurd Byron Hurd Contributor

Entry luxury shoppers are spoiled for choice.

Not only do most luxury makes offer small sedans that are affordable, but also small crossovers for interested buyers.

The ILX most often competes against other sedans, and it's mostly outgunned in nearly every respect—except price.

The Audi A3 sedan is aged and due for a replacement, but competent and quiet.

The BMW 2-Series sedan is new for 2020, starting with the gran coupe, and its worth a look.

The A Class was new last year and is loaded with tech.

The Volvo S60 is attractive and a little bigger, with a wide range of available powertrains.
