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, engine choices include two four-cylinder engines: a 2.0-liter base and a higher-performance 2.4-liter. The hybrid has been dropped. The base engine 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 multi-angle rear camera, and active noise cancellation. A low owner-satisfaction score is noteworthy.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
