What Do We Know About the 2016 Acura ILX Details?

December 8th, 2014 by

You may have heard that the details of the 2016 Acura ILX were released just last month at the LA Auto Show, but if you haven’t yet had time to do your own research, we at Chicagoland Acura Dealers are here to help you out. We have a quick rundown of the details of the new Acura, though nothing will compare to a test drive—and we’ll be sure to let you know the second we get the latest ILX in stock.

Changes for 2016

One of the most notable changes we think area drivers will love is the new engine. A standard 201-hp four-cylinder engine comes paired with Acura’s 8-speed dual-clutch transmission (with built-in torque converter). Of course, while this engine is one of the most impressive updates, the first thing you’re likely to notice is the new dynamic styling. With new styling cues for the front and rear end, Acura’s unique Jewel Eye LED headlights, upsized tires and wheels, and more, you’ll be able to see the differences from the 2015 ILX from down the street.

That’s not to mention the upgraded interior materials, the new premium technologies and features that help reduce in-cabin noise and improve the sporty, fun-to-drive feel of the ILX. European style stitching on the parking brake, steering wheel, and shift knob, high-intensity silver trim, and the available premium black interior color scheme mark this as a truly luxurious vehicle. What’s more, there are several updates to safety.

The available high-tech AcuraWatch advanced safety features, complete with driver-assistive tech to bring luxury car safety up to a brand new level. Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Road Departure Mitigation, and even an enhanced Collision Mitigation Braking System that can sense pedestrians are included in the AcuraWatch package.
