  • Millennials choose ILX at a greater rate than any other model in segment

Acura ILX

The 2017 Acura ILX goes on sale tomorrow, April 13, retaining the popular enhancements introduced last year that helped make it one of the most popular models in the entry luxury segment. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP)2 of the 2017 ILX starts at $27,990.

As Acura’s most affordable sport sedan and serving as the gateway to the Acura lineup, the ILX has captured a higher rate of under 35 year olds than any other vehicle in the entry-luxury sedan segment since 20101. Also, with naming Acura as the luxury brand with the lowest projected 5-year cost of ownership and voting the brand as the 2015 Best Retained Value® Luxury Brand, the ILX is a wise choice for gateway luxury vehicle customers.

Acura ILX

The ILX received significant upgrades for the 2016 model year including styling, powertrain, technology, luxury refinement and safety features. The 2017 ILX carries over the freshened exterior styling including Acura’s signature Jewel Eye® LED headlights, 201 horsepower3 2.4-liter direct-injected DOHC i-VTEC engine paired with an 8-speed dual clutch transmission with paddle-controlled Sequential Sport Shift, and signature Acura technologies such as the available AcuraWatch™ suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies. The 2017 ILX is available in three new exterior colors, Lunar Silver Metallic, Modern Steel Metallic and San Marino Red. The ILX is also available in Bellanova White Pearl, Crystal Black Pearl and Catalina Blue Pearl.
