Under the Hood

In terms of engine offerings, the 2017 ILX models are each powered by a 2.4L direct injection DOHC i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine that produces 201 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque—plenty of power to get you where you want to go and turn heads, as well!

This powerhouse engine comes mated to an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission with a torque converter, which was the very first of its kind in the automotive industry.

The dual-clutch design of this pioneering transmission enables amazingly smooth responsiveness and incredibly quick shifting ability. The eight gear ratios keep the engine operating at or near peak efficiency at almost all speeds. The torque converter was added to provide a smoother launch than has typically been experienced with dual-clutch transmissions in the past.

Sequential SportShift paddle shifters come standard and further help drivers realize the true potential of the 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, letting them shift in milliseconds rather than the approximate half-second of a traditional manual transmission.
