2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2019 Genesis G70

There are many reasons why the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class tops the list of the best luxury entry-level sedans. The excellent blend of comfort, performance, and technology should suffice as an explanation. Among its rivals, one interesting vehicle to explore is the 2019 Acura ILX. It looks very promising and may be considered as another option for the same class. Let us find out if the ILX can cope with the exciting features of the A-Class.

Design & Style

Designed to impress, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class features an ultramodern styling to create an aggressive stance. The clean lines and LED lighting are simply attention-grabbers. Inside its cabin is a set of premium implements that are truly captivating.
The exterior re-design of the 2019 Acura ILX features an aggressive styling. The sculpted hood and trunk has stunning lines that complements well with the Diamond Pentagon front grille. The interior is wrapped beautifully with Milano leather for that luxurious appeal.

Technology & Safety

The dual 7-inch display of the A-Class is an innovative infotainment feature. It gives clear information and keeps everyone entertained. The display may also be upgraded for the 10.3-inch version if you want a more tasteful option. For its safety features, the A-Class offers the usual driver aids. Majority of optional ones are included in the Driver Assistance Package.

Even if the ILX is marketed as a luxury car, it significantly lacks premium features for its technology. The infotainment is very basic and anyone will be unimpressed by the use of last-generation equipment. Same is true with its driver aids. None of the safety features are recent. Even the basic adaptive cruise control is disappointing because of its inconsistencies.


The turbo power engine of the A-Class delivers 188 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque. Its performance is reserved for those athletic individuals who prefer a sharper driving experience. It can accelerate from 0-60 mph at only 6.4 seconds. The braking system is also reliable and the driver will feel confident using it at any speed.

Across all trims, the ILX has a 2.4-liter engine for a 201 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. It is fun to drive with its quick and smooth transition. The car is well-balanced and stays firmly on the road. The braking system is responsive and not grabby which is great on a stop-and-go traffic.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class leaves the 2019 Acura ILX behind especially with regards to technology and safety features. The ILX miserably failed in providing quality features that are essential in a premium-priced vehicle. In the case of the A-Class, it stayed true to its promise of luxury from the design up to its superb performance.
