About Acura ILX
Acura is hitting the reset button with the 2016 Acura ILX. The first iteration of the compact luxury sedan stumbled out of the gate – while it was a good looking sedan, the driving experience was far too similar to its corporate cousin, the Honda Civic. So Acura went back to the drawing board, adding a new drivetrain, updating the exterior and interior styling, offering new technology, and making the car quieter on the road. The result is overwhelmingly positive: The 2016 Acura ILX is a substantially improved car, one that breaks the tie it had to the Honda Civic, and one that deserves consideration against competitors, not just the Buick Verano, but Mercedes-Benz CLA250 and Audi A3 as well.
