The 2015 Acura ILX is a premium compact sports sedan. If you live in Dieppe or Riverview, New Brunswick, you should drive on over to Acura of Moncton; We're just a few kilometers away.
Audi's compact 2015 A3 is also a small premium sedan, but for its price its really no better than the Acura.
The base price of an Acura ILX is $29,490 and includes nearly every feature you are likely to want. In order to get an Audi A3, you need to pay at least $31,600. For the base price of the Audi, it's still missing a rearview camera, 8-way power-adjustable heated seats, proximity key and more.
Another thing you don't get at the Audi's premium price is the Acura's powertrain. The ILX features a sweet 2.4-liter 4-cylinder with 201hp, but the base A3 only has 170hp from its 1.8-liter turbo motor. The A3 Quattro 2.0T does have 19 more horses, but that model starts at over $36,000. Acura also gives you a standard 8-speed automated manual transmission, which is 2 more gears than the Audi's automated manual.
The Audi needs more fuel to make less power too. The Acura ILX is rated at 9.3 litres per 100km city, and 6.6 highway. That's much better than what Audi can manage with its 10
So for a small and sporty sedan with plenty of premium features, but not a premium price, you should see the 2015 Acura ILX. Acura of Moncton, N.B. would be happy to tell you more about this latest Acura, so stop by today.
