    2017 Acura ILX OVERVIEW

    Acura's entry-level sedan, the ILX may not be a full-fledged luxury car, but it's as close as you can get without breaking the $30,000 barrier. Its overall refinement and premium features make it a legitimate alternative to compact luxury sedans costing thousands more.

    What's New for 2017

    Following last year's refresh, the ILX is essentially unchanged.

    Choosing Your Acura ILX

    The front-drive ILX is powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 201 horsepower, matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Overall dimensions are compact, but there's a commendable amount of room for five passengers. Every model gets active noise cancellation to assure quiet cruising.

    The ILX starts out with heated front seats with driver power, leatherette upholstery with contrasting stitching, a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless access and ignition, a sunroof, and a six-speaker sound system.

    All optional equipment is bundled into a series of option packages:

    AcuraWatch Plus

    Adds advanced safety features such as collision mitigation with automatic braking, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and front seatbelt pretensioners. You also get an integrated compass and a second display screen.


    Builds on the base ILX with front sports seat with driver memory and passenger power, Milano leather upholstery, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The audio system gains a subwoofer and satellite radio. Additional technology includes blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and a suite of smartphone apps.

    Technology Plus

    Includes AcuraWatch Plus and the Premium package, plus a 10-speaker ELS surround-sound system, navigation, solar-sensing climate control, and an enhanced rearview camera display.


    Available in conjunction with the Premium and Technology Plus packages, the sport-themed A-Spec package adds more aggressive exterior trim, foglamps, 18-inch wheels, faux suede seat inserts, a black headliner, and red dashboard lighting.

    There are no individual factory options for the ILX beyond the usual dealer-installed accessories.

    CarsDirect Tip

    The Premium package provides you with a well-rounded luxury car for $29,990. That makes it our favorite way to equip the ILX. Loading it beyond that point takes some of the luster off its value and places it in competition with more power and luxurious competitors.
