Choose the 2014 Acura ILX for You

May 15th, 2014 by

At Chicagoland Acura Dealers, we know that you want to get the best variety in your new car search, and while we think that the Acura brand is perfect for that, the fact is that you can find great variety in even just a single model like the 2014 Acura ILX.

Whether it’s the basic 2.0L engine, the 2.4L, or the ILX Hybrid, it’s easy get an ILX that fits your needs.

The ILX 2.0

Named for its engine size, the ILX 2.0 features a 2.0L engine rated at 150 hp and 140 lb-ft of torque and paired with a five-speed automatic transmission. Standard on the entry-level ILX are features like:

  • Sunroof
  • Heated front seating
  • Active noise cancellation
  • Five-inch touchscreen display
  • Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio

Acura also includes a seven-speaker sound system and upgrade options like the Premium and Technology Packages. While the Premium Package adds on xenon headlamps, a rearview camera, and an auto-dimming mirror, the Technology Package gives you a 10-speaker ELS audio system, navigation with voice commands, and more.

The ILX 2.4

Upgrading the engine of the ILX to the 2.4L four-cylinder brings the power up to 201 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque, giving you control with a six-speed manual transmission. While many of the same amenities of the ILX 2.0 are available to you, the optional Technology Package is only found on the 2.0.

The ILX Hybrid

For drivers looking to be a bit more fuel conscious, there’s the ILX hybrid. The 2014 ILX Hybrid has earned an EPA-estimated 39 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway,* for a fuel-efficient luxury sedan.

The ILX Hybrid distances itself from the other ILX models by offering a different features package that combines many of the elements of the Premium and Technology Packages into one add-on, featuring xenon headlamps, a 10-speaker sound system, and more all in one package.
