The 2019 Acura ILX and the 2019 Honda Accord Sedan are both remarkable vehicles that offer drivers a dynamic performance on the road, refined and convenient features inside the cabin, and impressive fuel economy. But for drivers who are considering the mid-level Accord EX, you might also want to consider opting for the more luxurious ILX with Premium Package. The two models are just about even in price thanks to the luxurious ILX being “less expensive than class rivals,” according to U.S. News and World Report. But the ILX will also be more powerful, come with a longer warranty, and add more amenities to the cabin that the Accord EX leaves out.


For drivers who are looking for a vehicle that offers more power on the road, consider opting for the ILX. It will produce up to 201 horsepower which can make trickier driving situations, such as merging or passing on the highway, much easier and gives drivers more control behind the wheel. The Accord is still comparably powerful for the class but falls short of the ILX, producing up to 192 horsepower.


Choosing the ILX will also come with a more comprehensive warranty than the Accord. The ILX comes with a basic warranty of 48 months or 50,000 miles compared to the Accord’s 36 months and 36,000 miles. The ILX also has longer coverage for the powertrain with a warranty up to 72 months or 70,000 miles, while the Accord’s powertrain warranty covers 60 months or 60,000 miles.

The ILX with Premium Package and the mid-level Accord EX have many of the same comfort and technology features inside the cabin, but as a luxury vehicle, the ILX steps it up a notch. Drivers who choose the ILX over the Accord can expect standard leather seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. And with more adjustments to the driver and front passenger seat, as well as more audio options, the ILX is supremely comfortable, even for longer journeys.
