2014 Acura ILX
$2,288 savings available (expires 11/4/13)
The ILX is Acura's entry-level luxury compact and shares its underpinnings with the Honda Civic. But it has different suspension tuning, as well as fancier features and nicer interior materials. Engine choices include three four-cylinder engines: a 2.0-liter base, 1.5-liter hybrid, and a higher-performance 2.4-liter. The base engine and five-speed automatic work very well. Handling is sound, but the ride is a bit choppy and road noise is pronounced, undermining its "affordable luxury" promise. For 2014 Acura upgraded the interior with more standard gear, including heated front seats, a multi-angle rear camera, and active noise cancellation.
The key to getting the lowest price on a car is to know how much negotiating room you have. That means knowing all of the current sales incentives, including behind-the-scenes dealer perks. That information is what makes the CR Bottom Line Price the best place to begin your new-car negotiations. It's calculated by subtracting any rebates, dealer incentives, or holdback amounts from the dealer-invoice price. That gives you a good idea of how much negotiating room you have below the car's sticker price. Armed with those figures, you can often save thousands of dollars when buying a new car. Get the CR Bottom Line Price on your next new car through Consumer Reports' New Car Price Reports.
