Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

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

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

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

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

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

2021 Acura ILX Overview

Neil Cumins
Automotive Editor - January 25, 2021

What's New

The 2021 Acura ILX returns unchanged following a big update in 2019. The subcompact luxury sedan adds some style to the Honda Civic it's based on, and it's three available packages allow buyers to customize it to their liking.

Choosing Your Acura ILX

The Acura ILX is available in four trim levels: ILX, Premium, A-Spec, and Technology. Starting prices range from $27,125 including destination for the base model to $31,125 for the A-Spec.

Engine Choices

The ILX is powered by a 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder gas engine that generates 201 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. This is supplied to the front wheels through an efficient eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with paddle shifters behind the steering wheel.

The ILX returns an EPA-estimated 24 miles per gallon city, 34 mpg highway, and 28 combined.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Acura ILX can seat up to five passengers, but it only offers 34 inches of rear leg room. Cargo capacity in the trunk checks in at 12.4 cubic feet.

Safety Features

There’s a fair amount of standard safety equipment on the ILX, but you’ll have to move up the range to reap the full benefits. Every model receives forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control.

However, you’ll have to add the Premium Package to receive blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.

Connectivity

This is where the ILX falls down, with the base model effectively missing out on all the technological advances of the last decade. As standard, you receive a six-speaker audio system with USB inputs, but no touchscreen or smartphone integration.

Buyers have to move up to the Premium trim level to get an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, satellite and HD radio, and more. The Technology trim gains navigation, a better audio system, an improved rearview camera, and more.

ILX - From $27,125

The infotainment offering in the standard ILX may be poor, but the rest of the car is rather better equipped. A tilt-and-slide moonroof and ambient lighting illuminate a cabin featuring dual-zone climate, keyless access with personalized settings, and a start/stop button. Leatherette covers the sports seats, with eight-way power and lumbar support for the driver’s seat. Active sound control muffles road and engine noise, the steering wheel and shift knob are both clad in leather, and both front seats are heated.

Premium - From $29,125

Equipping the Premium Package also allows you to add other packages to the ILX’s specification. The Premium itself brings perforated leather seats with memory and passenger power lumbar, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, the 8-inch infotainment display, an upgraded seven-speaker audio system, and smartphone integration.

A-Spec - From $31,125

The A-Spec package is entirely focused on aesthetics. Among its 15 upgrades are premium leather seating, stainless steel pedals, 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels (replacing the standard 17-inch rims), underbody spoilers, and graphite-and-chrome dash trim.

Technology - From $33,025

It’s possible to build on these improvements of all lower trim levels with the Technology model. It boosts the stereo to a 10-speaker affair and bringing 3D navigation with real-time traffic rerouting. However, to add the Technology, buyers also have to pay for the A-Spec pack.

CarsDirect Tip

It’s illogical that a styling pack has to be added before you can specify navigation, so we’d avoid the A-Spec and Technology. However, the standard 2021 Acura ILX lacks even basic connectivity, making the Premium an essential upgrade.
