2015 Acura ILX
Fuel Economy and Power Under the Hood
Acura has always been known for a level of attention to the details that make car ownership a joy. Not only does Acura deliver luxury, but the Acura engineers also deliver the subtle touches that allow true luxury to fit your budget and your life.
The New Acura ILX is one of those cars that is priced just right, but carries so many more outstanding features than the competition. The Lexus CT200h is well known for its legroom and comfort. But the Acura ILX has more legroom that the CT200h and the Acura price tag comes in under the Lexus’ cost. When put side by side with any of the competition, the Acura ILX turns out to be the luxury vehicle with more of the advanced features that luxury shoppers want while being the most affordable of them.
The Acura ILX comes standard with a 2.0-liter, four cylinder i-VTECH engine. If 150 hp is not quite enough for you, then you can get the optional 2.4-liter, four cylinder i-VTECH engine that has 210 hp No matter how you look at it, the Acura ILX is going to go easy on your wallet when it comes to the gas consumption.
Tame The Power of the ILX Your Own Way
Both the New and Used Acura ILX comes standard with a five-speed automatic transmission. Acura has also included its Sequential SportShift paddle feature in the ILX that allows you to change from the “Drive” setting to the “Sport” option. The “Sport” option makes accelerating up hills smoother and easier. The “Drive” option allows you to enjoy standard driving conditions in comfort.
If you are more of a standard transmission kind of person, then get the six-speed manual transmission option for the ILX. The Acura engineers made certain that shifting from one gear to the next is extremely smooth and they even made the clutch softer to make shifting easier on your legs. Once again, Acura thinks of every possible way to make your driving experience custom to your driving preferences.
With The ILX, You Are In Control
There are several standard control options with the ILX that make it a premium luxury vehicle. For the road warriors and people who have to stay in contact while on the road, the ILX has a standard Bluetooth feature that is universally compatible. You can also use the SMS text message function on the five-inch color dashboard display to stay in touch as well.
The dashboard display is positioned in such a way that it is easy to see even when the sun is shining brightly. The lighted dashboard features make keeping track of your speed and RPMs easy and convenient. The ILX also has a keyless door lock and a push button ignition that help deter theft. If you want to make things even more convenient, then you can add the voice recognition option that allows you to manage all of your controls without ever taking your hands off the wheel and your eyes off the road.
Safety is Always Covered with the Acura ILX
The Acura engineers know how important safety is to every driver on the road and that is why the ILX comes standard with the latest in driver safety technology. The ILX comes with a rear view camera system that allows you to see anything that could present challenges when backing up. As for the drive ahead, you can get the optional high-intensity discharge headlights and never be surprised by anything the road throws your way.
The airbag system in the ILX is intuitive enough to know if the person in the front passenger seat is too small to benefit from the use of an airbag. In these instances, the front passenger airbag is deactivated to prevent additional injuries in case of an accident.
Families will appreciate the engineering that goes into the child safety features of the ILX. There are sensors behind each of the front seats that can tell of there is a child safety seat installed in the back seat area. If the ILX detects a child protective car seat, it will disengage the side airbags to prevent injury to the child. It is the kind of protection every family wants and deserves and it is the kind of protection your family gets in an Acura ILX.
