Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Toyota Corolla as you will with the Acura ILX, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
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 Toyota Corolla 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 Toyota Corolla and the Acura ILX have similar Destination Charges.

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

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Toyota Corolla is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Acura ILX.
