2018 Acura ILX Taillight

Chicagoland’s drivers don’t have to break the bank to find a luxury sedan with high-end features and satisfying performance. Pricing for the 2018 Acura ILX Standard starts at just $28,100 MSRP*, and according to the writers at Kelley Blue Book, it’s the best entry-level luxury car available today! KBB’s 5-Year Cost to Own awards are consistently referred to by drivers who want more for less, and as part of this year’s proceedings, they’ve determined that the ILX will cost just $38,293 over the first five years of ownership! This cost estimate includes possible repairs, scheduled maintenance, fuel expenditures, and more.

ILX Features and Highlights

The ILX is certainly an affordable option, but drivers may still be wondering what technologies and capabilities it’s really offering for the price! Skeptics can rest assured, because no matter which ILX trim level you choose, there’s almost nothing the ILX can’t do.

  • Powertrain: The Acura ILX comes standard with a 2.4-Liter Engine, an 8-Speed Dual Clutch Transmission, and Front Wheel Drive. Intelligent Variable Valve Timing, a Drive-by-Wire System, and Direct Gas Injection can help you get the most out of the ILX’s 201 hp. The ILX gets an EPA rated 25 mpg city, 35 mpg highway, and 29 mpg in combined settings**.
  • Technology Features: Drivers who upgrade with the Technology Plus package will receive an Acura Navigation System, an ELS Studio Premium Audio System, GPS-Linked Solar Sensing Climate Control, and much more.
  • A-SPEC Package: Acura’s new A-SPEC package features 18-Inch Wheels, Side Sills, Fog Lights, Red Interior Lighting Accents, perforated Lux Suede Seats, a Trunk Spoiler, and more! It’s based on Acura’s vision for the future of the luxury segment, and can be equipped on any ILX which also includes the Technology Plus or Premium packages.
  • Intelligent Safety: ACE Body Structure, Vehicle Stability Assist, and many other features come standard on every Acura ILX. Drivers who equip the AcuraWatch Plus or Technology Plus packages will also receive a Lane Keeping Assist System, Adaptive Cruise Control, a Collision Mitigation Braking System, and more.
