The 2018 Acura ILX is a suitable entry-degree luxurious car, however a loaded-up mainstream mannequin just like the Honda Civic delivers extra features and refinements for much less cash.
The 2018 Acura ILX is likely one of the least costly methods to step as much as a luxurious model, however it’s straightforward to see why it’s priced at beneath $30,000.
This yr’s ILX is definitely based mostly on an maintain Honda Civic.
That is not a nasty factor, the Acura ILX has pleasantly, upscale features and a superb warranty, however its basic sedan roots present via slightly greater than we might like. We fee it at a 5.eight general. (Learn extra about how we price automobiles.)
The ILX is on the market in a single trim degree with Particular Version, Premium, and Tech Plus packages for a complete of seven configurations. The ILX Particular Version package deal is new this yr and, for $800 over the bottom ILX, it provides 18-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, and a particular physique package. The ILX’s styling is convincingly Acura and never dressed-up Honda, however that’s not essentially an asset. Final yr, the ILX gained standard LED headlights, nevertheless it nonetheless sprouts one thing of a beak-like entrance fascia that a lot of the Acura lineup has moved away from.
Beneath each ILX sits a 201-horsepower 2.four-liter inline-four paired to an eight-velocity twin-clutch automated transmission. Entrance-wheel drive is standard. The ILX’s four-cylinder engine delivers good acceleration and it’s nicely-matched to the sporty transmission. We’ve discovered the ILX to journey pleasantly and it advantages from appreciable sound deadening in comparison with the previous Civic on which it’s based mostly, however this 4-door is tuned extra for consolation than for nook carving.
That theme is echoed inside with a smattering of sentimental-contact supplies and convincing artificial leather-based upholstery on base and Particular Version packages. Actual leather-based hides are included as you’re employed your approach up by means of the hierarchy. The ILX’s entrance seats are snug, however the standard energy moonroof’s housing cuts into head room for taller passengers. It’s the identical story within the second row with good leg room however restricted head room.
Most variations of the ILX may be fitted with the model’s AcuraWatch suite of collision-avoidance tech, which incorporates automated emergency braking, lane-departure warnings, lively lane management, and adaptive cruise management.
