Don’t sit looking back and forth between two screens trying to compare vehicle on your own. Let us at Pohanka Acura lend you a hand starting with our comparison of the 2017 Acura ILX vs the 2017 Audi A3 near Washington, DC. We’re going to get down to the nitty-gritty when comparing these two sedans, so let’s get started.

Let’s all admit it: there’s a lot riding on the telematics system. The ILX boasts AcuraLink®1, which is host to dozens of features that will drastically improve every drive you take. It can send information directly from your phone to your car and vice versa, such as direction and web content. Downloading The Connect App provides you with access to your ILX, even when you’re nowhere near it. Check the diagnostics, fuel level, tire pressure, as well as lock and unlock the ILX, all from your phone. While you’ll find a telematics system in the Audi A3, and can shoot destinations from your phone to your A3, that’s where the connection ends – so why settle for less when you can have more in the ILX?

You’ll notice a large difference in this comparison between the 2017 Acura ILX vs the 2017 Audi A3 near Washington, DC, when it comes to safety, too. Just because you’re opting for a compact vehicle, doesn’t mean you want an abridged list of features, which is why the ILX provides the entire AcuraWatchTM suite to keep you and the ones you love safe. You’ll find advanced features like a Road Departure Mitigation System2 and a Multi-View Rear Camera3, neither of which the A3 has. While it does have a rear view camera4, it can’t pretend to compare to the ILX’s, which boasts a top-down and two side views to ensure safety while in reverse.

The largest difference, however, is in the preventative tech-based safety – of which you won’t find any on the A3. The ILX is jam-packed with useful features, such as the Forward Collision Warning system5, which gives both audible and visual warnings that a frontal impact may be impending. If you, the driver, don’t react quick enough, the Collision Mitigation Braking SystemTM6 will pull your seatbelt tight and firmly apply the brakes to reduce the damage or prevent the accident entirely! Now that’s impressive.
