Comparison Review

The Honda Insight will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Acura ILX, making it more convenient to drive.

There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Honda Insight is clearly a better financial choice over the Acura ILX. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Insight and the Acura ILX have similar Destination Charges.

When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Insight is significantly less powerful than the Acura ILX. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Insight and the Acura ILX.

The basic warranty of the Honda Insight is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Acura ILX.
