Here at Acura of Barrie, we enjoy making sure that Acura’s compact sport sedans are always on your radar. The all-new 2018 Acura ILX naturally fits the mold, as it features bold, aggressively styled interior and exterior design, fantastic fuel economy, and a precision-happy powertrain. After careful consideration, we’ve come up with what we believe are the top three noteworthy features of the 2018 Acura ILX below.
New Special Edition Trim
2018’s Acura ILX has added yet another trim into its collection. The Special Edition trim features refined aerodynamic details that heighten the sporty look and feel of the car, as well as custom 18-inch alloy wheels with built-in resonators that add that much more fun and style to your driving experience.
The new Acura ILX is a model to beat. Featuring a 2.4-liter DI four-cylinder engine, an 8-speed dual clutch transmission with 201 horsepower, 180 pound-foot torque, and drive-by-wire throttle control, the ILX is a worthy example of a car that doesn’t skimp on power. As long as you use the recommended premium fuel, your 2018 ILX should remain as powerful as the day you brought it.
Sleek Interior Styling
Thanks to leatherette-trimmed seating options that can be upgraded to either perforated Milano premium leather or Lux Suede® seating with contrast color stitching, the 2018 ILX gets off to a great start in the world of luxury auto interiors. The car also features 8-way powered driver’s seats, ensuring that your drive is always as comfortable as possible. Additionally, all trims feature seats with a two-level heating system, making the ILX ideal for those cold winter days on the road.
Acura’s 2018 ILX contains an audio system comparable to that of high-end luxury car brands. While less expensive models feature the Acura six-speaker audio system, upgraded trims can enjoy the perks of a Premium Seven-Speaker Audio System that includes a subwoofer, or an ELS Studio®32 Premium Audio System with 10 speakers.
