2016 Acura ILX : significant changes

The Acura ILX has always been a vehicle that appeals to consumers who are looking for a fuel-efficient and agile sedan that is affordable yet offers an extra touch of refinement.

With the Acura logo in the front, this is a vehicle that seems like it should cost more than the 29 490 $ seen on the window sticker. For 2016, the ILX gets a redesigned exterior as well as many improvements under the hood which make the ILX even more fun to own and drive on a daily basis.

Visually, we immediately recognize the 2016 ILX. The redesigned compact sedan gets standard patented Jewel Eye headlights while LED taillights are also standard. The vehicle’s front and rear bumpers have been redesigned, and new 10-spoke 17-inch wheels give the vehicle an overall more aggressive look. The new ILX looks more luxurious and unique, and also appears sportier.

Of course, the exterior look of the ILX is one thing, but if you want a vehicle to be really sporty, that starts under the hood. It’s a good thing that Acura chose to revamp what is happening in the engine compartment of the ILX. A brand new 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine now powers the 2016 ILX. Offering 201 horsepower, it is notably more powerful than the 150 horsepower engine that was offered in the previous compact sedan from Acura. Moreover, there is also a new eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that makes it easier than ever to enjoy the new power under the hood. The new transmission replaces the previous five-speed unit, and it promised to offer smoother shifts and more dynamic performance.

Other changes include an improved chassis that allows for better cornering and overall comfort, as well as modifications to the structure of the vehicle. That means that the 2016 ILX is now quieter than ever before, while also being safer should it be involved in a crash. A Top Safety Pick+ designation from the IIHS as well as a five-star rating from the NHTSA confirm the ILX’s improved safety.

There are three trim levels offered on the ILX. The most expensive version is the model equipped with the TECH package which tops out at $ 33,490. The latter offers a navigation system, a premium audio system, AcuraLink connectivity, and a host of other features. The TECH model also includes everything found in the mid-level Premium model which is offered starting at $ 31,990. Buyers get leather seats which are heated, blind sport information, cross traffic monitoring, and an eight-way adjustable driver’s seat. Back to the TECH package, you can also opt to add the A-Spec package which gives the 2016 ILX an even more aggressive overall design with added side skirts, a deck lid spoiler, racing pedals, and sportier rims.
