Every ILX feature is designed to heighten the synergy between car and driver, giving you a space that's inherently commanding.
Acura's Jewel Eye® LED headlight technology mimics the natural sunlight using ten separate LED lamps. The intense, focused beams of light help you to view colors more vividly and reduce fatigue at night.
The aggressive stance of machine-finished, 18-inch alloy wheels is impressive beyond looks. Resonators absorb the sound of air bouncing between tire and wheel to deliver you a quieter, more connected drive.
Permission to stare: Granted. Performance-driven details such as side sills, rear spoiler and fog lights elevate the overall appearance. Complemented by Jewel Eye® LED headlights and LED taillights, each leaves an impression - both coming and going.
The A-SPEC Package takes style to the next level. Choose 18-inch wheels, side sills, trunk spoiler, fog lights, aluminum pedals, red interior lighting accents, gray contrast stitching and black headliner. Plus, perforated Lux Suede® seat inserts share similar refinements as those in the NSX.
A prominent rear spoiler and aerodynamic side sills give ILX an aggressive stance. Unique 18-inch alloy wheels add to the driving experience with built-in resonators that give you a quiet, connected drive.
With performance-inspired details like those in the NSX, exhilaration begins the instant you get in. In the ILX, soft yet gripping Lux Suede® seats, contrast color stitching, Ebony headliner, red instrument panel illumination and race-inspired aluminum pedals assert a sleek, dynamic appearance.
The standard Keyless Access System with pushbutton ignition lets you unlock the ILX doors, enter the car and start the engine without ever taking the key from your pocket. It also remembers the preferred seat position and side mirror settings for you and another driver.
The sophisticated ILX interior is further refined by Perforated Milano Leather Sports Seats. Both front and rear seats are ergonomically designed to keep you and your passengers comfortable and secure.
The On Demand Multi-Use Display™ (ODMD™) is an intuitive touchscreen that combines all the controls you need in one striking 7-inch color system. It puts shortcuts for audio and climate at your fingertips.
GPS tracks the sun's position relative to the car while a solar sensor measures its intensity and adjusts system output to keep the set temperature for each of the system's dual-zones. You and your front passenger enjoy temperature and airflow that suits each of you best.
The Acura Premium Audio System is integrated into the intuitive On Demand Multi-Use Display™ (ODMD™) touchscreen. Seven surround speakers, including a subwoofer mounted in the rear cabin, produce a dynamic sonic experience.
The ELS Studio® 32 Premium Audio System reproduces studio quality sound. Surround sound fills the car from any digital source. Get extended range, lower distortion and enhanced clarity for an audio experience like no other.
The industry's first 8-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission with torque converter is standard on every ILX. The design enables lightning-fast shifting and smooth response. It's particularly impressive when using paddle shifters to control engine speed on curved or mountain roads.
Active noise cancelation listens to ambient engine and wind noise, and produces an equal but reverse sound through the audio system. The two sounds cancel each other out for a smooth and quiet ride.
The first line of defense in collision safety is in the structure of the car itself. Our Advanced Compatibility EngineeringTM body construction is integrated into every Acura model, including the ILX, to help reduce and disperse forces in front crashes with virtually any sized car.
In wet conditions, Vehicle Stability AssistTM can reduce the dangers of over and under steering and loss of traction by applying brakes at each wheel as needed and when necessary, reducing engine power. VSA is not a substitute for safe driving. It cannot correct the vehicle's course in every situation or compensate for reckless driving. Control of the vehicle always remains with the driver.
Gearshift in Acura ILX with Ebony Black Pearl andTechnology Plus and A-Spec Packages. Every ILX is equipped with the industry's first and only 8-Speed DCT with torque converter. Originally developed for racing, the dual-clutch design shifts faster, smoother and with greater efficiency than conventional automatic transmissions. A perfect fit for the high-revving inline-four engine to really shift what's standard.
The ILX further redefines the compact sport-sedan category. Aggressive styling makes a bold statement, while the high-revving standard 201-hp engine and rapid-shifting 8-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission turn every road into a driving revelation.
In the time it takes to read this, the ILX will be gone. In an instant, the 8-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission directing over 200 horsepower has driven past the stodgy, cliched world of luxury sedans and found its own path.
We go above and beyond government standards for your safety. Features associated with AcuraWatch™ can improve situational awareness and even intervene to help avoid a collision.
The Acura Navigation System is an intelligent driving companion with a high-mounted 8-inch LED screen and frictionless driver-centric technologies. Find your destination and directions using the Voice Recognition System. Avoid delays on busy surface streets and freeways using AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic™ with advanced Traffic Rerouting.
This GPS-enabled approach to climate comfort uses a solar sensor to measure the intensity and position of the sun, so the temperature of your cabin's two temperature zones remain as you set them. Part of the Automatic Climate Control System.
Integrated cellular triangulation makes AcuraLink® significant. In an emergency, it can pinpoint your location and diagnostics. On a whim, a live concierge can make dinner reservations and send directions to your navigation. At a touch, the streams app powered by Aha™ delivers cloud-based podcasts, internet radio stations and more.
The ILX Blind spot information System can detect and alert you to vehicles in the alert zone of the next lane. The Rear Cross Traffic Monitor can sense approaching vehicles to help check your surroundings - especially useful in parking lots and driveways.
The Road Departure Mitigation System uses a camera to identify lane lines and even objects on the side of the road. If it senses the ILX veering, it can warn you - and even brake as it assists you back into your lane.
Adaptive Cruise Control is the intelligent way to enjoy cruise control even in light traffic. Once you set a desired speed, radar maintains a set time interval behind the car detected ahead by balancing the throttle and braking where appropriate. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) cannot detect all objects ahead and may not detect a given object; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and other factors. ACC should not be used in heavy traffic, poor weather or on winding roads. ACC only includes a limited braking function. Driver remains responsible for slowing or stopping the vehicle to avoid a collision.
The Lane Keeping Assist System uses a forward-facing camera above the rear view mirror to identify lane edges to proactively keep the ILX centered. If you begin to drift to the side, it will gently guide the car back to the middle of the lane. The system/LKAS/Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)] only assists driver in maintaining proper lane position when lane markings are identified without a turn signal in use and can only apply mild steering torque to assist. LKAS may not detect all lane markings; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and road condition. System operation affected by extreme interior heat. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.
