2016 ILX
The 2015 Audi A3 price certainly makes it an appealing option for our Chicagoland drivers searching for that new luxury sedan, but if you want an affordable entry into the luxury car world, you should really take a look at the 2016 Acura ILX. Built to be a luxury sedan for professionals to enjoy before they hit retirement age, the ILX fuses value and luxury in a way we have never seen – and it comes in at a lower price than the Audi.

Acura Brings Superior Features at a Lower Price

While cost isn’t everything, all it takes is one look at the 2015 Audi A3 price and features list to wonder where its higher cost comes from.

  • 2015 Audi A3 models are priced starting at $29,900.
  • The 2016 Acura ILX has a base price of just $27,900 (MSRP).*

That $2,000 price difference would make a pretty sizable dent in the budget, but it’s only part of the picture. When both vehicles are comparably equipped on features and amenities, the price of the Audi A3 rises up to $39,245. That price jump comes from all of the features Acura gives their drivers that Audi expects you to upgrade for, including:

  • Voice-activated technology controls
  • Standard rearview camera
  • AcuraLink telematics system
  • Heated front seating
  • Noise and sound cancellation
  • Jewel Eye LED headlights
  • Push-button ignition
  • Steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters

If you want more in the way of amenities, the ILX has multiple package upgrade options, giving you the choice for high-tech connectivity, advanced safety features, and more classic luxury options.

The 2016 ILX has a superior engine to the Audi A3 too, offering up 201 hp and earning an EPA-estimated 36 highway mpg** while the A3 only manages 170 hp and 33 mpg on the highway.

Experience an Acura Firsthand

Acura makes sure their drivers are covered with some of the latest in automotive technology and comfort features, and you’ll also enjoy an added peace of mind with the ILX thanks to its 72-month/70,000-mile powertrain warranty (the Audi only covers the powertrain for 48 months or 50,000 miles).
