2016 Acura ILX Comparison near Woodbridge, VA

2016 Acura ILX vs 2015 Buick Murano vs Audi A3

If you're looking for a compact car that's big on luxury, performance, and comfort, then the 2016 Acura ILX is in your future. And when you put it up against the 2015 Buick Murano and Audi A3, it's easy to see who has the advantage in this 2016 Acura ILX comparison near Woodbridge, VA, at Pohanka Acura. From what's under the hood to what it's like when you get behind the wheel, the 2016 Acura ILX dazzles with superior performance and luxurious amenities that prove it deserves your recognition.

Perhaps the biggest advantage that the 2016 ILX has over the 2015 Murano and A3 is when you look at power and performance. The 2.4L 4-cylinder i-VTEC® engine of the ILX makes quick work of the Murano's 2.4L 4-cylinder engine and the A3's 1.8L 4-cylinder engine, offering the most performance with 201 horsepower. The 8-speed Dual Clutch Transmission features a torque converter for smooth shifting and paddle shifters for easy access and quick shifting. And even though if has the most powerful engine, it still has the best fuel economy with 25/36/29 city/highway/combined MPG1.

The impressive features of the 2016 ILX continue when you start to look at the interior and exterior luxury. When you're planning to take a trip out west to Shenandoah National Park or a day trip to Chesapeake Bay, you can let in the sights and sounds with the power moonroof, which is a standard feature on the ILX but isn't found on the Murano. A perfect combination of technology and safety is available in the multi-view rear camera2, which you'd have to add as a option to the A3. And when the weather starts to turn cloudy and you can smell the rain in the air, the speed sensing interval windshield wipers give you that extra convenience and luxury, which isn't found on the Murano.

The 2016 Acura ILX features the distinctive Jewel Eye® LED headlights, which is merely optional on the A3, and you're assured a quiet ride with the active noise cancellation system that keeps the cabin free from extraneous road and engine noise. A USB port is yet another way that you can connect via the 6-speaker audio system and listen to your favorite music, and you'd have to add that on to the Audi A3 as an option. A standard Push-Button ignition system is easily accessible from the heated front seats, and both of these features are either option or unavailable on the Murano and A3.

As you can clearly see, the 2016 Acura ILX has some pretty substantial advantages over the 2015 Buick Murano and Audi A3 when it comes to a powerful and luxurious drive. For more information, visit your local Woodbridge Acura dealer and speak with a member of our sale staff today.
