Luxury with athleticism

2017 ILX

Chicagoland drivers expecting premium materials, elite tech features, and responsive handling will not be disappointed with the 2017 Acura ILX. Now, factor in dominant fuel efficiency and a highly competitive starting price tag, and this is a luxury sedan you can’t afford to overlook.



Power, efficiency, and fun

The 2017 Acura ILX helps you live life in the fast lane without sacrificing efficiency, thanks to a 2.4L, 4-cylinder, direct-injection DOHC i-VTEC engine. This gives the ILX plenty of performance and low emissions using an intelligent valve control system. The standard 8-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission with torque converter offers smooth shifting that is responsive and quick when you need it most. With paddle shifters, drivers experience immediate response during turns, braking, and more.

    The ILX borrowed the base 2.4L four-cylinder engine of its sport sedan sibling, the TLX. It’s an aluminum block engine with direct injection that delivers 201 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque (SAE net). All of that power comes from a traditionally designed engine featuring immediate throttle response instead of the delay that comes from turbochargers.

    8-Speed Dual Clutch Transmission

    We think a transmission that was originally developed for racers fits the ILX just fine, offering smoother and faster shifting with improved efficiency over a traditional automatic transmission. This DCT was designed in-house at Acura, specifically to pair with the ILX engine.

    Performance Pedals

    There’s something about the look of polished aluminum pedals with a raised black grip that begs a driver to see what a car is truly capable of. We already touched on the accelerator response, but when you need to brake, strengthened calipers respond to a tap of the brake pedal. The shape of the pedal is even designed for superior vehicle response.

    Through a combination of MacPherson struts (front) and multi-link (rear), the 2017 ILX brings some of the most responsive handling to the table. The strut suspension allows for more crash reinforcement on the front end while the multi-link design increases rear seating and cargo storage in the trunk, mixing and matching to optimize the ILX all over.

  • 2017 Acura ILX Steering System

    Steering System

    The ILX already had a rigid steering assembly mount for tighter control, and the new model strengthens it further. The result is an increased, linear steering feel that should reduce overall vibration and offer superior precision that accounts for what speed you’re cruising at.

  • 2017 Acura ILX Body Structure

    Body Structure

    The 2017 ILX is wrapped in dynamic lines built to turn the heads of pedestrians and drivers, but the most impressive part of its body can’t be seen. Reinforced joints in the frame and the replacement of multiple components with single pieces has smoothed the overall stress flow. You’ll feel the stiffened response of the ILX’s reinforced body once you get behind the wheel, though.


Illuminating features

The road ahead never looked better, thanks to Acura’s Jewel Eye LED headlights. Thanks to the separate illumination of 10 individual LED lamps, your view ahead mimics natural sunlight. With the intensity and focus of these headlamps, you’ll enjoy a reduction in eye fatigue and the vivid expression of color in a wide range of natural lighting situations.

    Keyless Access

    Unlock the 2017 ILX and start the engine without ever taking your keys from your pocket or purse with the Keyless Access System. Your car can detect when the key fob is near and will unlock the doors as you put your hand on the handle. Then it’s just the push of a button, and you’re on your way.

  • 2017 Acura ILX Jewel Eye LED Headlights

    Jewel Eye LED Headlights

    Jewel Eye LED headlights give this luxury sedan the distinctive look of an Acura. With five LEDs per headlight, the ILX broadcasts a brighter and wider beam than traditional headlights, while also using less energy than halogen or HID bulbs.

  • 2017 Acura ILX Rearview Camera

    Rearview Camera

    Every 2017 Acura ILX comes with a standard multi-angle rearview camera that automatically displays on the 5-inch color display when you shift into reverse. Choose from a top-down, wide-angle, or standard rear view for peace of mind when backing up.


Tech on demand

Intuitive technology is at your fingertips with the On Demand Multi-Use Display, which offers 7 inches of color touchscreen access. You can program shortcuts, access audio, control climate, and more at the swipe of a finger.

  • 2017 Acura ILX Interior Front Seating

    Front Seating

    The plush seating of the ILX is enough to make you want to just take a load off of your feet and relax whether you have somewhere to go or not. Eight-way power-adjustable seating on the driver’s side takes behind-the-wheel comfort to new heights. And when those bitter Chicago winters set in, the standard dual-level heaters will keep you and a front passenger comfortable.

  • Chicagoland Acura Dealers

    Automatic Climate Control

    When you drive a 2017 ILX, you can stop adjusting the temperature controls every few minutes. The standard dual-zone automatic climate control helps ensure no one is too hot or too cold. The available Technology Plus Package adds on a solar sensor and GPS that adjusts heating and cooling automatically.

  • 2017 Acura ILX Interior Rear Seating

    Rear Seating

    The flat rear floor gives all three seats an equal amount of legroom, letting all of your passengers stretch out and get comfortable. If you don’t need to fill the back seat, a center armrest folds down and features built-in cup holders for your passengers.

  • Chicagoland Acura Dealers

    On-Demand Multi-Use Display

    Rather than try to load up the center console with controls for all different kinds of audio and climate systems, Acura designers have the available On Demand Multi-Use Display (ODMD). This customizable interface streamlines the look of the ILX interior and gives you direct, intuitive control over all vehicle settings.

  • Chicagoland Acura Dealers

    Advanced Steering and Controls

    The 2017 ILX is loaded with the latest in sophisticated controls, and in addition to the standard touchscreen, you’ll find steering wheel-mounted audio, phone, and cruise controls. Of course, with the available voice controls, you need only speak a word, and the system will respond to one of 600 different commands with navigation, music, and more.

  • Chicagoland Acura Dealers

    SMS Texting / Siri Eyes Free

    It’s impossible for an automaker to eliminate the desire to check a text message while driving, so Acura did the next best thing: integrate SMS texting. The 2017 ILX is designed to make full use of the Siri Eyes Free technology of iPhones, using voice controls for important settings, including texting. Don’t worry, though, non-iPhone users can have their SMS texts announced (with the option to have them read aloud).


Accident prevention and protection

AcuraWatch Technology puts your safety at the forefront with innovative technologies that help you prevent accidents before they happen. Tools like Lane Keeping Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control give you the space you need to respond in a wide range of driving conditions. A radar transmitter in the grille of the ILX is your key to the Collision Mitigation Braking System, which detects the distance and closing speed of objects in your path and begins braking before you react.

  • 2017 Acura ILX Active Seat Belts

    Active Seat Belts

    Within milliseconds of impact, the tensioner system on the ILX’s front seat belts automatically tightens and secures the occupant in place to reduce the risk of injury. And all seating positions feature three-point seat belts and head restraints to help reduce the risk of neck injury in an accident.

  • 2017 Acura ILX Child Safety

    Child Safety

    In order for a child to be truly safe in a car, he or she needs to be secured properly. Each 2017 ILX comes with sophisticated sensors to deactivate airbags for children in the front seat as well as pull-up LATCH-compliant anchors to secure a child safety seat in place. Even the windows are designed to notice if a hand or finger is in the way, stopping short and letting a child take their hand back in.

  • 2017 Acura ILX ACE Body Structure

    ACE Body Structure

    The ILX uses an Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure underneath all of its style and class to help keep passengers safe. In addition to featuring crumple zones designed to direct damage away from passengers, the whole frame is built to more evenly distribute accident energy. There are even extra braces added to the front corners to better protect during off-center collisions.

  • 2017 Acura ILX Collision Mitigation Braking

    Collision Mitigation Braking

    With AcuraWatch Plus, the 2017 ILX has its own set of eyes on the road. With a radar transmitter and a front-facing camera, the ILX can detect if a collision is likely and alert you. It can even engage the Collision Mitigation Braking System to begin slowing you down.

  • 2017 Acura ILX Lane Keep Assist

    Lane Keeping Assist

    The ILX with AcuraWatch Plus can keep track of your lane position with a forward-facing camera mounted in front of the rearview mirror. If it detects you drifting without signaling, Lane Keeping Assist will gently nudge the steering wheel until you are centered again.

  • 2017 Acura ILX Blind Spot Information

    Blind Spot Information

    You should always check your blind spot, but the available Blind Spot Information system is a second set of eyes. By using radar, it can detect if a vehicle is in an “alert zone” that indicates you might be unable to see it. Not only does it light up an indicator as warning, if you switch your signal on to move into that lane, the corresponding side flashes and a warning beep will sound.
