Acura ILX review - Dealership in Vancouver
The 2020 Acura ILX is one of the best deals among small luxury cars. Its attractive price and long list of standard features make it a great entry-level sedan for those looking to step into the luxury car market. With a complete redesign occurring in 2019, the recently updated Acura ILX cuts a sporty figure as it glides effortlessly across town, keeping drivers wrapped in comfort the whole way.
2020 Acura ILX Overview
Starting at $30,490, the ILX comes in four model variations: ILX, Premium, Premium A-Spec, and Tech A-Spec. The 2020 Acura ILX is available in only one powertrain option--a 2.4-litre 4-cylinder engine that produces 201 horsepower. The engine pairs well with a 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, which allows it to react quickly and be responsive to the driver's slightest signals. With sport-tuned steering and a precisely engineered suspension, the ILX is a joy to drive, whether you are speeding down the highway or zipping through city streets.
In terms of handling, the ILX is poised and confident, gripping tightly to the road and obeying any adjustment to the steering wheel. Paddle shifters on the steering wheel provide a more direct connection to the ILX's drivetrain for those who want more race-inspired control. The engine revs easily, and while it is not the quickest car in its class, it definitely has power. It also has excellent brake-pedal feedback, cutting down stopping distance and responding to the lightest touch. The ILX offers decent fuel economy with 9.9 city / 7.0 highway / 8.6 combined L/100km.
2020 Acura ILX Interior
The ILX is a small sedan, and while its size does not limit the spaciousness of the roomy front row for the driver and passenger, the back row becomes cramped very quickly. However, it seems to be the only small space in the car as the trunk offers a respectable 350 litre capacity. The cabin is spacious and well-designed, featuring many standard upgrades, such as a sunroof, synthetic leather upholstery, heated seats with power adjustments for the driver, and dual-zone automatic climate control.
Another standard upgrade on the ILX is that the bi-directional key fob features lock, unlock, and remote engine start. With the number of upgrades that come standard on the ILX, drivers can see how it is a good value for their money.
One item that does not come standard on the base model ILX is a touchscreen infotainment system. However, the upgraded models feature an 8-inch unit that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability.
2020 Acura ILX Safety
Every 2020 Acura ILX model comes standard with a host of driver-assistance technology led by AcuraWatch, which is designed to give drivers more freedom to enjoy the drive. Standard on the ILX, AcuraWatch includes such safety features as adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, collision mitigation braking system, lane departure warning, and more. Even more specialized safety features are available at an additional cost, such as a blind spot information system and rear cross traffic monitor system. The 2020 ILX earned a perfect five-star crash-test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
