Introduced as an early 2013 model, Acura’s entry-luxury compact sedan didn’t seem to take hold initially. Targeting successful Generation Y customers, in their 20s and 30s, the ILX was considered a “gateway into the Acura brand.”
A tad nondescript at first glance, the sedan is surprisingly capable and pleasant to drive, for a comparatively reasonable sticker price. Enhancement for 2016 affected styling, powertrain and technology aspects of Acura’s most affordable sport sedan, as well as adding some safety features. Except for three new body colors, little has changed for 2017.
