2021 Acura ILX Review

Is the ILX your introduction to luxury performance or is luxury performance your introduction to the ILX? Either way comfort and precision come standard. There’s one model: the ILX. Add Premium or Technology packages for even more luxury and convenience; then add the A-Spec package for more performance. Talk about design—that low wide stance says Let’s go find some corners have some fun. And those Jewel Eye LED headlights don’t just look cool; they simulate the sun. A powerful 2.4-liter engine comes with every ILX. So does an Eight-Speed Dual-Clutch Automatic Transmission—the first one ever designed with a torque converter. And Sequential Sport-Shift Paddle Shifters mean ILX drivers are masters of their domain. Every ILX comes with AccuraWatch Safety and Driver-Assist features to help you avoid trouble and Acura Navigation with 3-D view is available to make sure you get where you’re going. Choose from a variety of colors options and Acura Genuine Accessories and build an ILX that’s all yours. The Acura ILX. It’s a luxury-performance prodigy.
The Acura ILX is loaded with technology. Available AcuraLink Connected Services keeps you connected to the world so you can access the internet check emails and texts lock and unlock doors remotely get directions—you get the idea. Add AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic and steer clear of traffic jams forever. Available GPS-linked dual-zone climate control that uses solar sensors to measure the intensity and position of the sun. The temperature stays where it’s set—inside outside and on both sides of the cabin. The Acura ILX. Precision-crafted technology.
The Acura ILX is so safe it earned a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Standard AcuraWatch advanced driver assist systems alert you to things you might miss—like that car Cslamming on its brakes in front of you. Available features include Blind-Spot Information System and Rear Cross-Traffic Monitor. And if worse comes to worst Acura Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure evenly distributes frontal crash energy reducing forces transferred to the passenger compartment. The Acura ILX. Precision-crafted safety.
The Acura ILX is your gateway luxury performance sedan. Feel over two hundred horsepower push you back into a bolstered sport seat as the ILX’s direct-injection system delivers more power and better efficiency—up to 34 miles per gallon. Pull a sequential SportShift Paddle Shifter with your right fingertip and grab another of the eight-speed dual-clutch transmission’s gears. Or pull the left one and downshift. Embrace every corner with the precise feel of Electric Power Steering and Amplitude-Reactive Suspension Dampers. The Acura ILX. Join the fun.
