Acura ILX

The Acura ILX is Acura’s launch into the entry-luxury compact segment. Although it’s initial launch didn’t quite go as planned being outsold by nearly every other luxury marque in the industry, Acura is hoping that it’s recenty facelift of the ILX will give the luxury compact some new life. The striking standard Jewel Eye LED are likely the first thing most people will notice and utilizes technology to rival that of Audi and Porsche. Acura’s use of strong side contour lines and angles give the ILX a recognizable personality for a vehicle with a base price well under $30,000.
As striking as the exterior of the ILX is, potential buyers will likely be sold on the high level of the ILX’s fit and finish. Two-stage heated leatherette sport seats are standard but can be upgraded to full leather at little cost to match the standard leather-wrapped steering wheel. Keyless access and push-button ignition are standard as is Bluetooth Handsfree phone and audio streaming to the 5-inch multifunction center display. Upgrading to the Premium Package buys you perforated leather seating, blind spot awareness as well as a cross-traffic monitor, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio whereas the Acurawatch Plus trim adds adaptive cruise control (on a car still under $30,000!), lane keeping assist, and a brake assist system that will kick in if you are distracted or lose focus. Above the Premium and Acurawatch trims, the Technology Plus package adds a 3D real-time traffic navigation system, GPS-linked climate control (we aren’t sure what it is either but it sounds impressive), and an upgraded sound system for the same price as a base Audi A3 or Mercedes CLA-Class. The A-Spec package adds a touch of sportiness to your ILX in the form of 18-inch sport alloys, a rear spoiler, red instrument illumination, and aluminum sport pedals.
A 2.4L direct-injected four-cylinder engine producing 201 horsepower and 180 lb/ft of torque powers the Acura ILX. Power is sent to the front wheels via an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission and drive-by-wire technology. Although acceleration isn’t the ILX’s strong suit with a sprint to 60-mph taking 7.2 seconds, returning 25mpg city and 35mpg highway more than makes up for that. Standard safety features include LED daytime running lights, a multi-view rear camera, and a wide-angle driver view mirror. You and your occupants will stay safe in case of an accident thanks to the multiple airbags including the dual-stage front, side curtain, and front-side airbags that will only deploy depending on where the occupants are.
Although the ILX wasn’t known for it’s stellar sales performance, this new generation promises to take the fight firmly back to the competition thanks to a new attractive muscular body, an incredibly well equipped interior, and technology not meant to compete with other vehicles in it’s class but rather cars in a class above. The Acura ILX is meant to compete with cars such as the Audi A3, Mercedes-Benz CLA, and Buick Verano.
