You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2013 2.0L 4dr Sedan

Price:   -  From $25,900
2013 2.4L w/Premium Package 4dr Sedan Price:   -  From $29,200


Though without strict trim levels, Acura does offer grouped options along with two different powertrains (excluding the hybrid). The base ILX comes with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine paired to a five-speed automatic transmission. For leadfoot drivers, Acura produces a 2.4L-powered ILX that puts out 250 hp. However, if you cannot drive a stick you will have to learn for the 2.4L ILX, as only one transmission is available, a six-speed manual. The Premium Package, one of two separate option groups, is standard on 2.4L ILXs and available for addition on the base model.

The second option group, named the Technology Package, is not offered on the 2.4L but does give a modern-makeover to 2.0L ILX’s interior cabin. Including an 8-inch VGA display, 10-speaker sound system and hard disk drive media storage, the technology package makes entertainment a cinch. Plus the navigation system with AcuraLink real-time traffic and weather provides drivers a glimpse of the road beyond what is seen through the windshield.

A newcomer to the luxury small car class, the ILX faces stiff competition from automakers with decades of experience. Similar to the Volkswagen GTI, the Audi A3 is a better performer than the Acura and provides high fuel-mileage when equipped with the available diesel engine. Furthermore, the A3’s five-door, hatchback body-style offers more cargo space than the four-door ILX yet less standard features. If you prefer a sedan to a hatchback, Buick produces the inviting Verano with an optional turbocharged engine that, like the 2.4L ILX, has a powerful 250 hp. Only 6.5-inches longer in overall length, Acura’s TSX wears a similarly upscale interior to the ILX while having 5.2-cu. ft. more in passenger volume.

With the lowest base price in Acura’s lineup, the ILX is ideal for entry-level shoppers interested in an upscale small car.
