Which is more fuel efficient?

Both the 2022 Acura ILX And 2022 Acura TLX provide efficient performance. However, one model comes out on top in the fuel economy comparison: the ILX. Thanks to its smaller, naturally aspirated engine and lower curb weight, the ILX presents the greater EPA-estimated fuel economy of 24 City and 34 Highway MPG.

The 2022 Acura TLX is no slouch in the efficiency department, though. The larger TLX mid-size sedan boasts a highly efficient turbo-four engine that helps it achieve an EPA-estimated 22 City and 31 Highway MPG. That's still mighty impressive for a sport sedan packing 280 hp!

So, the new Acura ILX and TLX are not far apart when it comes to efficient performance. The more powerful TLX comes up a bit short, though, meaning that the ILX wins the category for the most fuel-efficient.

What’s the Difference in Size?

The 2022 Acura ILX is classified as a compact car, while the 2022 Acura TLX is a mid-size car. However, once inside, you won't notice a huge difference in cabin space. Still, the mid-size TLX is certainly the larger option.

Acura's 2022 ILX measures 182.2 inches in overall length, while the 2022 TLX comes in at 194.6 inches. The new TLX is also wider. Occupants will likely notice more of a difference in width than height when comparing the cabins of these two Acura sedans.

The front and rear legroom of the ILX are within an inch of the slightly more spacious TLX. But shoulder room and hip room in both rows give the TLX a more significant advantage. For instance, the TLX has the edge in from hip room, with 55.8 inches compared to the ILX's 50.3.

In the trunk, the 2022 Acura TLX narrowly edges out the ILX, with about one additional cubic foot of space.

So, if you're looking for a compact and agile car that's easy to park and maneuver around Omaha, the shorter and narrower Acura ILX may be the better option for you. However, if you want a bit more cabin space and cargo capacity, consider the 2022 TLX.

What’s the Difference in Safety?
