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.

2014 2.0L 4dr Sedan
most popular
Price:   -  From $26,900
2014 2.4L w/Premium Package 4dr Sedan Price:   -  From $29,200


Acura’s premium compact sedan, the ILX offers near-luxury appointments and upscale looks at friendly price. A newcomer to the U.S. market, the ILX enters its second model year for 2014.

What's New for 2014

To reinforce its luxury aspirations, and to further differentiate it from the Honda Civic with which it shares a platform, Acura added standard equipment like leather seating with driver power and heat in front, and 17-inch wheels.

Choosing Your Acura ILX

The ILX comes with one of two engines:

  • A 150-horsepower 2-liter four-cylinder matched to a five speed automatic transmission, and good for 28 mpg in combined driving.
  • The optional 2.4-liter boosts output to 201 horsepower, drops fuel efficiency to 25 mpg combined, and requires a six-speed manual.
Acura ILX Zoom

Given its efforts to position the ILX as a luxury car, Acura has made a few odd packaging decisions. If you want the larger engine, you can't have an automatic transmission or a navigation system.

The model lineup has been renamed this year to reflect transmission type rather engine displacement:

Acura ILX

6-Speed Manual Premium

The range-topping ILX comes with the more powerful 2.4-liter engine, Premium equipment, and a few exclusive touches: contrasting seat stitching, red instrument lighting and aluminum sport pedals.

Despite its high content, the ILX is off to a slow start. The tepid sales have nothing to do its quality, but the lack of an automatic transmission in the 2.4-liter model. Low demand means greater bargaining power for you when shopping.

CarsDirect Tip

If you prefer shifting for yourself and don't mind the absence of navigation, the 2.4 is our choice for an enjoyable near-luxury driving experience.
