  • Acura ILX A-SPEC Package

Acura ILX Horsepower and Torque

At the heart of the Acura ILX sits a 2.4L Aluminum-Alloy 4-Cylinder engine that can summon:

  • Up to 201 hp
  • Up to 181 lb-ft of torque.

It’s light enough to ensure nimble handling, and further engine features include:

  • Drive-By-Wire system for excellent throttle response.
  • Intelligent Variable Timing and lift Control (i-VTEC®) for increased horsepower.
  • Direct Gas Injection for a precise air/fuel mixture.

Whether accelerating from standstill or changing into the fast lane, the Acura ILX will respond perfectly to your every command.

Acura ILX Fuel Economy

The Acura ILX delivers exceptional mileage ratings for such a powerful model. Engine output is refined through an 8-Speed DCT (Dual-Clutch Transmission) with Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters to deliver:

  • Up to an EPA-estimated 24 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway*

Dual-Clutch Transmissions provide smooth shifting and seamless power delivery since they use one clutch for odd gears and another for even ones – that means the next gear up or down will always be pre-loaded for instant response. You might have heard that some are known to shift roughly, so Acura fitted a torque converter to make certain that’s not a problem.

Acura ILX Performance Features

The commanding ride of your Acura ILX will come from more than just the engine and transmission. You’ll also find a diverse suite of performance features working to sharpen handling and optimize your drive through every twist and turn.

Performance features include:

  • 4-Wheel Independent MacPherson Strut Front/Multi-Link Rear: Provides outstanding handling and ride quality without impacting interior space.
  • Front and Rear Stabilizer Bars: Helps control body roll as you head into tight corners and curves.
  • Electric Power-Assisted Rack-and-Pinion Steering (EPS): Provides generous power assist at lower speeds and a firmer feel at higher ones.
  • Ventilated Front Disc Brakes: Ventilation helps reduce brake fade for dependable stopping power.

Active Safety Features

The first responsibility of active safety features is keeping you protected, but they make sure that happens by refining performance.

Features include:

  • Vehicle Stability Assist® (VSA®): Fitted with Traction Control and Motion Adaptive Steering, VSA uses an array of sensors to detect and correct oversteer and understeer.
  • Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD): When you hit the brakes, braking force will be divided intelligently between all four wheels.
  • Brake Assist: Your ILX will provide additional braking force when an emergency braking situation is detected.
  • Hill Start Assist: The clutch is held down for a few seconds on an incline to prevent your vehicle rolling downwards before you can hit the gas.
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TMPS) with Location and Pressure Indicators: Having too much or too little air in your tires can impact performance, so the ILX tells you when they need attention.
