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