For the longest time, the Acura ILX had a lot of trouble demanding a premium over the Honda Civic that it shares a lot of components with. The 2019 model year of the Acura ILX changes that, as the sedan gets more aggressive styling, some new technology features, and a large drop in pricing from last year. With all of these changes, the ILX is a more attractive option in the luxury segment.

Pricing for the 2019 ILX starts at $26,895 (prices include the $995 destination fee). That's a large drop of $2,200 from last year. Moving up the ILX with Premium Package is an extra $1,750, carrying a price tag of $28,645. That configuration builds upon the extra savings, as it's $2,450 cheaper than before. Tacking the Technology Package onto the ILX raises the price to $30,545.

The most affordable way to get into an ILX A-Spec trim, which adds some sporty features onto the sedan, including 18-inch wheels, dark chrome accents, aluminum sport pedals, and an A-Spec-badged steering wheel, is the A-Spec with Premium Package that costs $30,645. Last year, configuring an ILX with similar features cost $33,095. At the top of the range sits the ILX A-Spec with Premium Package that costs $32,545.

So, pricing is down throughout the entire ILX lineup, which makes Acura's compact sedan more competitive than ever. Going with a base ILX makes it more affordable than the Audi A3, Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe, Lexus IS, and even the range-topping Honda Civic Touring.
