Acura welcomes a whole new generation of drivers with the Acura ILX.  This inclusive luxury model invites drivers to experience all that Acura has to offer in luxury performance, technology, and comfort.

The Acura ILX delivers powerful driving control and handling.  Thanks to the all-aluminum frame, the lightweight model is built to balance power and control for better handling and agility on the road.  The ILX glides through curves with an effortless sense of grace.  The model comes in three powertrain options including:

–          2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine with i-VTEC variable valve technology.  Capable of 150 horsepower, this engine packs the power in but still maintains an impressive fuel efficiency rating of 35mpg average on the highway. 

–          ILX 6MT engine that delivers an impressive 201 horsepower for increased power on the road. 

–          1.5 liter Hybrid gas/electric engine that averages 39mpg city / 38 mpg highway for those looking to cut gasoline costs and emissions to the highest level.

In addition to a powerful line-up of engines, the ILX also features an aggressive, wide-rear design and optional xenon high-intensity headlamps for added visibility.

The interior features of the care are as luxurious as the exterior design.  The ILX features available leather seating, heated front seats, and power driver seat controls.  Each model comes standard with ambient lighting, a 5” color information display, and a leather wrapped steering wheel, shift knob, and hand brake.  Dual climate control is also available with optional GPS linked solar sensing climate controls to track the sun’s position and adjust the interior climate accordingly.

Technology features are prevalent throughout the vehicle.  Each model is equipped with hands-free Bluetooth technology and drivers can select the optional SMS text messaging function which reads texts aloud and permits drivers to vocally select a pre-programmed response.  Pandora internet radio, XM Satellite radio, and USB connectivity are also available on select models.

Moreover, the optional voice-control navigation system on the Acura ILX helps drivers find their destination more easily and even features access to Zagat Survey® restaurant reviews for selected areas.  Available push-button start and intuitive controls make the entire experience a pleasure.

In all, the Acura ILX expertly integrates exciting power, luxury performance and styling, and progressive safety and technology seamlessly into one unique sedan.
