2020 Acura ILX Overview

The ILX is a premium compact sedan, similar to the Lexus IS, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Genesis G70, and Audi A4. It got a substantial facelift for 2019, so it has no major changes for this year.

All ILXs come with a 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder engine that develops 201 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. An 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (DCT) and front-wheel drive (FWD) are also standard. Fuel economy stands at 24 mpg city, 34 highway, 28 combined, albeit on premium fuel.

The ILX’s standard roster of features include 17-inch alloy wheels, LED exterior lighting, a power sunroof, an acoustic windshield, sport front seats with leatherette upholstery and heating, an 8-way power driver’s seat, a folding rear seatback, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless start and access, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, ambient lighting, the Acura Audio system, and a dual-screen infotainment system.

The Premium Package bundles perforated leather seats, 2-position driver’s memory, a 4-way power passenger seat, premium 17-inch alloy wheels, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and Acura Premium Audio with 7 speakers and a subwoofer.

The Technology Package comes with Acura/ELS Studio premium audio system featuring 10 speakers and a subwoofer, navigation with 3D view, real-time traffic, and a color instrument-panel LCD.

Finally, the A-Spec package includes a unique body kit, A-Spec badging, 18-inch gray alloy wheels, LED fog lights, a dark-chrome grille, piano black exterior trim, premium leather-and-Ultrasuede seats, an A-Spec steering wheel, a black headliner, a unique instrument panel, stainless-steel sport pedals, and A-Spec door-sill trim.

The ILX includes the entire AcuraWatch suite of features as standard. They consist of forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, road-departure mitigation, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and a multi-view rear camera. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic detection are also standard. The Acura ILX received excellent scores for crash prevention and safety, but a Poor headlight rating kept it out of the running for any awards.


Kyree has always been fascinated with the automotive world, especially when it comes to premium European cars. But regardless of the vehicle—whether it's an efficient hybrid or the latest luxury sled—he's always ready to dispense information and advice. These days, he enjoys doing that here at CarGurus.
