The ILX gets its explosive power from a 2.4-liter, 4-cylinder, direct-injection DOHC i-VTEC® engine. This engine is the best of both worlds as it delivers high-performance speed and power (up to 201 horsepower), while still maintaining an impressive fuel economy (an EPA estimated 36 highway mpg). The ILX stands out from the masses with the world’s first 8-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission with torque converter and Sequential SportShift paddle shifters which delivers rapidly smooth transitions between gears. In layman’s terms: the ILX is fast, responsive, and just plan thrilling to drive.

The 2018 MDX is loaded with features that deliver, performance engineered around you, offering superior command of whatever path you’re on.
We were always told it’s not polite to stare, but when it comes to the redesigned 2016 ILX it would be rude not to. The new ILX features exterior design cues like standard Jewel Eye® LED headlights and taillights which add to the aggressive and sporty feel of the ILX. Inside it’s all about luxury. As much as you rev the mean engine of the ILX, you won’t hear a sound thanks to Active Sound Control. For those that seek an even sportier look for their ILX, Acura offers the A-SPEC® appearance package. This package comes with side sills, a rear spoiler, 18-inch wheels, fog lights and even more features on the interior like sport pedals and suede-trimmed sport seats.
We live in a world where connectivity matters. The ILX keeps you connected with GPS navigation, AcuraLink, and an On-Demand Mulit-Use touchscreen display. Acura puts safety first though, and all these great tech features are accessible through Siri Eyes Free so you can stay focused on the road ahead. If you are a music buff, you’ll never want to leave the ILX. Acura partnered with Elliot Scheiner to develop the ELS Premium Audio System and we promise your music will never sound the same.
