Pros

Acura luxury in an entry-level premium package; available technology; spirited performance; hybrid availability

Model Highlights

Acura's newest offering, the entry-level premium ILX sedan, offers enough luxury, performance and eco-friendly options to make the car appealing to anyone shopping the segment.

Although based on the Honda Civic compact sedan platform, the new ILX is 100 percent Acura and comes clad in sleek, aggressive sheetmetal, while the sharp front fascia bears the familiar Acura face. Acura calls this styling theme "Keen Edge Dynamics."

Four-wheel disc brakes are standard and handling is thanks to MacPherson struts in the front and a multi-link setup in the rear, with stabilizer bars over both ends as well. Paired with the car's unit body construction, the effect is an athletic, exciting ride.

Three trim levels are available--base, Premium and Technology Package--and all come powered by a variety of i-VTEC 4-cylinder engines. Base ILXs come standard with a 150-horsepower 2.0L. That engine powers a Premium model and the ILX Technology Package model as well. Premium models can also be specified with the sporty 201-horsepower 2.4L. The 110-horsepower, 1.5L ILX hybrid model is available in base trim and hybrid tech package, which tops the range at $34,400.

All ILX 2.0L engines are paired with a 5-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift and paddle shifters. The 2.4L ILX Premium utilizes a quick, exciting short-throw 6-speed transmission, while Hybrids are outfitted with a continuously variable transmission.

In addition to goodies such as power windows, locks and mirrors, base ILX models offer 16-inch alloy wheels, cloth sport seats with a fold-down rear seatback, a 6-speaker stereo, steering wheel-mounted audio, cruise and Bluetooth hands-free controls and automatic climate control.

Premium models add 17-inch alloy wheels and Xenon HID headlights, with heated leather-trimmed seating and 10-way power driver controls, a 360-watt, 7-speaker sound system, a 5-inch display with rear camera and remote entry. Premium-trim ILXs with the 2.4L engine also feature contrast seat stitching, stainless steel pedals and red gauge lighting.

The ILX Technology Package steps things up inside the car with Acura navigation, real-time traffic and weather, a 10-speaker, 415-watt sound system with hard-drive storage, XM satellite radio, and more.

All ILXs come loaded with standard safety features like anti-lock brakes, stability control, and six airbags.

Model News

For 2013, Acura introduces a new model to its lineup: the entry-level premium ILX sedan. The car is based on the Honda Civic platform, but the similarity end there. With three impressive trim levels and as many i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine choices--a 150-horsepower 2.0L, a sporty 201-horsepower 2.4L and a 110-horsepower, 1.5L hybrid electric with Integrated Motor Assist--the ILX offers something for every buyer in the market for a smart, fun, affordable premium sedan.

Mfg's Report Date:
JUL 18, 2012

Component:
LATCHES/LOCKS/LINKAGES:DOORS:LATCH

Potential Number Of Units Affected:
172,837

Summary:
Honda is recalling certain model year 2012 Honda CR-V and model year 2013 Acura ILX vehicles. If the manual or power door lock is activated while an interior front door handle is being operated by an occupant, the cable connecting the interior door handle to the door latch mechanism may become loose and move out of position. There is a possibility that the cable can move far enough out of position to prevent the door from properly latching.

Consequence:
If the door is not fully latched, the door may open while driving or in a crash, increasing the risk of personal injury to the vehicle occupants.

Remedy:
Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front door latch assemblies in the affected vehicles, free of charge. Additionally, the interior front door handles in certain Honda CR-Vs will also be replaced, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on, or about, August 16, 2012. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-800-999-1009.
