The 2016 Acura ILX represents a significant step forward from its predecessor. The new premium subcompact further differentiates itself from the Honda Civic by way of unique powertrain, chassis, and design features.
Check out Nathan’s interview with Gary Robinson, head of Acura product planning, to find out almost everything you ever wanted to know about the 2016 Acura ILX.
Powered by a new direct-injected 2.4-L four-cylinder engine and eight-speed, dual-clutch transmission, the ILX has become more of a driver-focused machine. The four-pot is good for 201 HP and 180 lb-ft of torque and returns 25 mpg city, 36 mpg highway and 29 mpg combined.
The 2016 Acura ILX also gets numerous styling upgrades including restyled front and rear end, plus new 17-inch, 10-spoke aluminum alloy wheels. All ILX models come equipped with Acura’s signature Jewel Eye® LED headlights and feature upgraded interior materials, optional upsized wheels and tires, enhanced connectivity, and a host of new premium features, along with significant improvements to cabin quietness, sporty handling and collision safety engineering.
The 2016 Acura ILX will start at $27,900, and top out around $35,810.
