Acura Tops Affordable Luxury Cars List

June 13th, 2013 by

One of the toughest things to convince drivers of is the idea that “luxury” does not mean “expensive,” at least not when you’re looking at Acura vehicles. That said, drivers who have been to a Chicagoland Acura dealer are probably unsurprised by the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA)’s assessment that results in naming Acura to’s list of 2013’s Most Affordable Luxury Cars.

What was the Number One Affordable Acura?

Although it hasn’t been out too long, when Acura put forth the 2014 ILX as their flagship sedan, it became pretty clear that they were putting one of their best options forward, and seeing it at the top of this list feels pretty fitting.

One of the biggest points made in the listing of affordable luxury sedans is that the idea of “luxury” is a subjective one, one that is often tied in with an emotional impact of the vehicle. With Acura working hard to dismiss notions that luxury vehicles need to be expensive, it’s little wonder that so many drivers are happy to find the luxury sedan or SUV they want in the Acura lineup.

Some of the features that are sure to attract drivers to the new ILX include:

  • Leather upholstery
  • Five-inch information display screen
  • Bluetooth phone and audio streaming
  • Heated front seats
  • Seven-speaker sound system

And although power may not be a top priority for some drivers, we know that others expect their luxury sedans to give up a bit more oomph than you would find on your average car. Don’t worry, though, you’ll have the option between a 2.0L and a 2.4L four-cylinder engine, with 150 hp and 201 hp, respectively.
