2019 Acura ILX Review
It’s sleek, sporty, and ready to tackle the day in Warwick, Providence, and Coventry. It’s the 2019 Acura ILX, and it’s a car you’ll find right here at Speedcraft Acura. Our Rhode Island owned and operated dealership will help you get behind the wheel of this compact luxury sedan.
We’ve put together this car review, which covers various topics, so you’re able to visit us already knowing what the ILX is all about. When you’re here, our sales professionals will answer any further questions you have and set up a test drive.
Lively Acura Performance
Coming standard with a peppy 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine, the 2019 ILX engine is mated to an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. This was originally a car developed for racing purposes, so the dual-clutch design is meant to shift quickly, delivering 201 horsepower in the process. This engine gives you noticeable power on those daily drives, and it also carries that extra kick when out on the highway.
The paddle shifters, another standard feature, are certainly a nice touch. Control engine speed when out on winding roads, and then get that lightning-quick acceleration when coming out of a turn. It’s possible to enjoy those roads without spending too much time at the gas station, either. The 2019 ILX earns an EPA-estimated 24 MPG city/34 MPG highway.1
Feeling at Home Inside the Acura ILX
When buying or leasing a new car, it’s important to be able to feel like you have a home away from home. After all, we spend a lot of time in our cars, and it’s comfort that matters most. You will feel at home inside the ILX, with seating for up to five people and a power-adjustable driver’s seat capable of providing that lived-in, welcoming feeling you’re looking for.
Heated front seats are a standard feature, perfect for a chilly early spring evening or cold winter morning. If you upgrade to one of the advanced packages in the ILX, you’ll have premium leather seating which looks great and feels great.
Standard interior features include a 5-inch display screen, with available Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration. Your smartphone features are just a touch away.
AcuraWatch™ Safety Features
The 2019 refresh of the ILX includes more standard AcuraWatch™ safety and driver-assistive features than found in previous editions of this car.
The Collision Mitigation Braking System™, for instance, is able to alert you to potential obstacles up ahead. If you aren’t able to react in time, the brakes will be activated for you.
There’s also Adaptive Cruise Control technology, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of cruise control even in light traffic. Once you’ve set a speed, radar maintains a time interval behind the car ahead and balances throttle and braking when appropriate.
