2016 Acura ILXIf you’re looking for a luxury sedan that has all the features you love in the Chicagoland area, you might be considering getting a 2016 Audi A3.

The 2016 Acura ILX comes with the exclusive AcuraLink telematics system. This lets you contact live Acura operators with just the touch of a button at any time of the day or night. AcuraLink lets you contact first responders, roadside assistance, and more via our live operators.

Voice-Activated Controls

Acura’s voice-activated controls give you hands-free control of your AcuraLink system. You’ll be able to order your AcuraLink system to place hands-free calls, as well as find destinations and change your music with just a few simple voice commands. Keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road when you take advantage of voice-activated commands.

Noise and Sound Cancellation

Only the Acura has unique sound and noise cancellation that makes your cabin whisper-quiet. The insulation and active noise cancellation system uses materials, carefully tuned engine lines, and an acoustically engineered cabin to make sure that outside road and wind noise doesn’t bother you. Only the Acura ILX can boast a cabin this serene.

Push-Start Ignition

The Acura ILX comes with a push-button start system for your convenience. Your key fob comes with a proximity chip, which lets the engine know when you’re inside the car. Even if your key fob is buried in your purse or your pocket, you’ll be able to push a button to start the Acura without having to fish for your keys—or leave them dangling inside the car. Only the Acura can make starting your car this convenient!

Paddle Shifters

Hands free has a new meaning with the Acura ILX’s paddle shifters. You’ll be able to shift gears easily and smoothly from your steering wheel with these shifters, making it easy to get your car into just the right gear without having to take your eyes off the road to check your gears.

LED Headlights

LED headlights are the new choice in luxury lighting. LED lights cast a brighter, clearer light than traditional halogen lights, and use less energy than the traditional halogen lamps you’re used to. Improve your visibility and energy use with the Acura ILX’s headlights.

Other Amenities

The Acura ILX is made for luxury. Inside, you’ll find heated front seats for those chilly days, as well as seatback storage for keeping your personal items organized. Little touches like this put the Acura head and shoulders above the competition.
