2017 Acura ILX Review - New Car Test Drive

INTRODUCTION

The Acura ILX is a luxury front-wheel-drive compact with simple options compared to some of its rivals: one locomotive, one communication, and three trim tiers.
Edgy and sporty, it use a sharp 2.4 -liter four-cylinder locomotive and paddle-shifting twin-clutch 8-speed automatic drive. It acquires 201 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. The ILX cabin is a sugary blot to spend time, with contoured skin-deeps and instruments that are easy to speak.
The Acura ILX competes most directly with the Audi A3 and Mercedes CLA.
For 2016, it got a light update, with LED headlamps, better interior materials, and more available connectivity including a dual-screen infotainment arrangement. The 2017 Acura ILX is unchanged.
The NHTSA dedicates it five wizards for gate-crash safe, and the IIHS dedicates it top ratings including in the small overlap frontal impact measure, which very few gondolas ace. Acura's available boosted safe systems were rated Superior, to return it a Top Safety Pick+ rating.
The 2017 ILX is rated by the EPA at 25/35 miles per gallon City/ Highway, or 29 mpg Mixed. Premium fuel is recommended, so that elevates the fuel expense. That's 2 mpg more than the A3 and 1 mpg less than the CLA.

LINEUP

The 2017 Acura ILX ($ 27,990) be coming back Premium ($ 29,990 ), and Technology Plus ($ 32,990) decoration tiers. There's an A-Spec box ($ 2000) that lends a spoiler, foglamps and 18 -inch 10 -spoke pedals.
Standard equipment includes influence moonroof, influence driver's seat, a multi-view rearview camera, and Bluetooth. The Premium lends leather, influence passenger posterior, dual-screen infotainment, satellite radio, blind-spot observes and rear cross-traffic alerting.

WALKAROUND

The ILX is moderately handsome. It might not turn fronts, but it won't swerve stomachs, either. It's got some sharp-witted perimeters, down low-grade at the bottom of the figurehead fascia, and the rockers along the side below the doors. Its front bumper is V-shaped, in accordance with the V of the grille, and looks like a timed chin. The flat pitch-black plastic bordering the round foglamps is dull and awkward. The 18 -inch 10 -spoke rotates are distinct, kind of like 10 legs with big paws on them, and look like they should be moving( not like they are moving) when they are standing still. They seem better moving, because then they're a blur and you can't see how ugly "they il be".

INTERIOR

The instrument panel isn't as sporty as the rest of the car; it's very basic, with a spare look to the plastic and ventilates, and a simple boundary. We'd like a little bit more glamour, and wish there were more coloring and clevernes in the materials, although they are of good quality, and the fit and finish is very good. Events are laid down by neatly and comfortably, ergonomically, instinctively. It's easy to operate the dominations without making your eyes off the road. Except for the infotainment organization, and that's a sore point.
The refinement and quietness is good, with fairly thick glass and standard active sound deletion organization that absorbs small but ruffling resonates from the powertrain or street. It uses the sound system's orators, a room microphone, and a sophisticated processing algorithm.
The front seats are supportive and awfully adjustable for the driver, although the front fare seat requirements height change. Lower, that is, as headroom is close-fisted, while still being a bit more than adversaries. In back, astonishingly there's enough leg area and knee area for six-footers.
The overall interior infinite is superb, with batch of area for small-time personal items. Unlike in the thwart Audi A3, there are well-planned buckets and cubbies everywhere. The 12.4 -cubic-foot stalk can hold two large suitcases, or a large jug, or even a wheelchair. The split rear seatbacks can be flip-flop forward for access to the stalk with extended infinite.

DRIVING IMPRESSION

We haven't driven the 2017 ILX hitherto, but these are our thoughts of the 2016.
The direct-injection 2.4 -liter locomotive, shaping 201 horsepower, delivers strong and satisfying achievement. It's the same engine as in the next biggest Acura model, the TLX.
The wonderfully responsive 8-speed, dual-clutch transmission is the perfect friend. It use a torque converter for low-speed smoothness, while it alters very rapidly with the paddles, when driving the ILX aggressively, including rev-matched downshifts in boast mode.
The A-Spec performance package implementations 18 -inch rotations that are 7.5 inches wide-ranging, with very low-profile tires that perform the go harsher on choppy arteries. We got a lot of seat time in a 2016 A-Spec, and don't believe the harder cornering allowed by these rotations and tires is worth the compromise in convenience.

SUMMARY

The Acura ILX isn't for everyone, although it can be enjoyed. The styling isn't peculiar, the engine isn't special, the room is mundane; better stuff about it is the 8-speed dual-clutch transmission.
