The Features of the 2016 Acura ILX Impress Us
We’re just a few days out from the 2014 LA Auto Show, and we already can’t wait to put you behind the wheel of the 2016 Acura ILX. The fact is that Acura has somehow found a way to make their entry-level luxury sedan one of the most compelling cars in the auto world, and while we can’t cover the whole vehicle here today—we can never cover a while vehicle in a single blog post—we have a quick review of the features for you until we can show it to you in person.
Features Define the ILX
Really, features define almost any modern car, but the ILX is particularly exciting. Here’s what Michael Accavitti, General Manager and Senior Vice President of the Acura division, had to say about the new car:
“Top to bottom, from dynamic design to luxury features, and leading-edge safety technology to sport sedan athleticism and sophistication, ILX is now a true gateway to Acura’s performance luxury sedans. ILX was always a great idea. Now it’s a great idea fulfilled—a luxury vehicle for the next generation.”
We think that sums it up quite well, but you probably want to know what kinds of features you can expect on the new model, right? Let’s start with the engine:
- Under the hood of the 2016 Acura ILX will be a 201-hp four-cylinder engine.
- Paired to that engine is an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission with a torque converter, not unlike the one on the 2015 TLX.
Acura also has their new AcuraWatch safety features available on the ILX, including accident prevention technologies that help put it in a whole new league as far as auto safety is concerned.
And we haven’t even gotten to the new technology features, but it looks like we’re running short on space already. Check back in the future to learn more about the new ILX, including a release date when we have it.
