Acura ILX Overview

Acura's entry-level luxury compact shares its underpinnings with the Honda Civic but has different suspension tuning as well as fancier features and higher-grade interior materials. For 2015 the base engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder. The stronger 2.4-liter four-cylinder uses a six-speed manual. The 2.0-liter and five-speed automatic work very well. Handling is sound, but the ride is a little choppy and road noise is pronounced, undermining its "affordable luxury" promise. The interior has lots of standard gear, including heated front seats, a rear camera, and active noise cancellation. Reliability has been above average but the ILX scores too low to be recommended.
