Use our research information to learn more about the complete line-up of New Acura Vehicles available at Radley Acura in Falls Church, VA. Serving Washington DC and Northern Virginia.
The same powerplant found in the TLX sport sedan is now in every ILX model. The aluminum block, direct-injected 2.4-liter inline-four delivers 201 high-revving horsepower, 181 lb. ft. of torque (both SAE net) and best-in-class thrills per mile. Unlike turbocharged engines, throttle response is immediately impactful while the engine's light weight makes handling nimble and fuel economy notable.
Along with the new engine, all 2016 ILX models are equipped with the sophisticated 8-speed DCT transmission. Originally developed for racing, the dual-clutch design shifts faster, smoother and with greater efficiency than conventional automatic transmissions. Designed in-house, drivers will find it a perfect fit for the high-revving inline-four engine.
The ILX uses a combination of MacPherson struts for the front suspension and a multi-link arrangement in the rear. Using a strut-style front suspension makes more room available for crash reinforcement. The multi-link rear suspension helps maximize second-row seating and cargo space—all while providing outstanding handling and ride quality.
The ILX steering system is a good example of the subtle ways a luxury car differentiates itself from more conventional vehicles.
The four-wheel disc brakes are designed with several subtle enhancements to improve their performance over conventional cars of the same size.
Though not apparent to the naked eye, body structure is one of the best examples of what distinguishes the ILX from conventional cars of its size.
A variety of measures were taken to ensure the ILX delivers the refined ride of a luxury road car.
All models are equipped with a multi-view rear camera50 that automatically gives you a choice of three different images of the area behind the vehicle when "reverse" is engaged.
Stunning, highly illuminating Jewel Eye® LED headlights are standard on all ILX models. Five low-profile LEDs per headlight provide a whiter, brighter beam while using less energy and lasting significantly longer than HID or traditional halogen headlights.
The Keyless Access System with smart entry and pushbutton ignition allows you to walk up to the ILX, unlock the doors, and start the engine without ever having to take a key out of your pocket.
The sophistication of the ILX interior begins with the plush feel of the seats, which are ergonomically designed to provide comfort and support and feature 8-way power adjustment for the driver's position.
The ILX comfortably seats three passengers in the back, while a generously sized door provides them with easy access.
The ILX trunk is a large and easily accessible area with plenty of usable space.
The ILX has many easily accessible storage areas throughout the cabin to make life more convenient on the go.
To maximize passenger comfort all ILX models feature dual-zone, adaptive automatic climate control allowing the driver and front passenger to adjust their own temperature and airflow settings. With the combination of the Technology Plus Package, a solar sensor measures the sun's intensity to determine its impact on interior temperature while the GPS receiver on the Acura Navigation System10 even tracks the sun's position relative to the car.
The ILX dashboard sports the dual-cockpit design found on all Acura models. With its elegant shapes, refined materials and intuitive functionality, it was smartly designed to enhance your driving enjoyment.
In addition to the sophisticated new touchscreen and versatile steering wheel-mounted controls, the voice recognition feature allows you to perform the most frequently used audio, climate, and navigation functions without ever lifting a finger. Simply speak and it will be done.
Leading the way in audio and information Technology Plus has its advantages-and its challenges. So as the number of features and music sources have increased, Acura designers foresaw a very crowded center panel. The solution is an intuitive touchscreen called On Demand Multi-Use Display™ (ODMD™) that consolidates the controls drivers need at any given moment. What could have been more than 30 buttons has been simplified to nine.
Check in with the office without taking your eyes off the road. The Bluetooth®11 HandsFreeLink® system works with most Bluetooth-enabled cell phones to let you initiate and receive calls using the ILX audio system. For more details, please visit the Acura Bluetooth HandsFreeLink minisite.
Handheld texting while driving is illegal in most states and highly dangerous in all states. The integrated SMS text message function44 enables you to respond to incoming text messages while following the law and minimizing the potential driver for distraction. The Premium Package allows you to receive and listen to email as well. Drivers with paired, Siri-equipped iPhones®8 can also use voice-command to perform these (and other) functions.
Models without the navigation system are equipped with a 5-inch, full-color, center display screen that offers a variety of information.
Audio & Navigation
The easy-to-operate standard ILX audio system offers clear, dynamic sound with six speakers around the cabin while the display at the top of the instrument panel provides detailed audio information. The system can accommodate a wide variety of audio sources, which include:
As part of the Premium Package, the Premium Audio System is operated through the intuitive On-demand Multi-use Display (ODMD) touch-screen. The system has all of the standard audio system's features but the six speakers are now joined by a sub-woofer mounted at the rear of the cabin. The ODMD also allows easy access to all audio sources including added sources such as:
Grammy® award-winning recording engineer and producer Elliot Scheiner helped design the ELS Studio®32 Premium Audio System to reproduce music the way it is heard in the recording studio. As a result, surround sound fills the car from any stereo digital source. In addition to all the source inputs of the standard ILX audio system, features of the ELS system include:
In the ILX, you can take your digital music library along for the ride on your iPod, USB7 flash drive or compatible phone. You can even have your own personal DJ with Pandora®45 loaded on an iPhone®8.
The Song By Voice® feature uses the voice recognition system to help the ILX driver find music from the hard disk or a USB7-connected iPod®8 simply by voicing a preference.
The Technology Plus Package includes the Acura Navigation System10 which in conjunction with AcuraLink®, is perhaps the best driving companion since the invention of the car radio.
The AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic™57 feature helps you steer clear of gridlock by providing continuously updated traffic information in major metropolitan areas across the 48 contiguous United States.
A whole new generation of AcuraLink®70 graces the ILX. Thanks to an embedded cellular device, the AcuraLink system now features two-way communication making it even more versatile. In an emergency, location and diagnostic information can be sent and retrieved from the car. Greater interaction with your smartphone enables even more available services. While many AcuraLink features are complimentary others require a subscription. Some of the systems highlights are:
The Acura Navigation System10 has an extensive database of addresses and points of interest for a variety of handy information.
Safety & Security
Seat belts are the first line of defense in a collision. That's why all ILX seating positions have 3-point belts and head restraints. The front seats also have a load-limiting tensioner system and each airbag features a highly sophisticated deployment system.
The ILX has several features addressing child safety, from sophisticated airbag sensors to anchors that secure child seats.
To enhance occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions, the ILX features next generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure.
ILX disc brakes are complemented by several sophisticated electronic systems that enhance stopping performance in almost any circumstance.
A standard feature that makes every driver a better driver. The Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®)12 system uses an array of sensors, along with ABS to reduce the dangers of oversteer or understeer.
To help reduce the likelihood or severity of a frontal impact, the AcuraWatch Plus features the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)61.
The highly capable, road-hugging ILX prefers pavement.
It's the best kind of backseat driver. Using a forward-facing camera mounted above the inside rear view mirror, the Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)59 works proactively to keep the ILX inside a detected lane.
Conventional cruise control has always been welcome on long highway trips but is of little use on an urban driver's daily commute. Available Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) allows you to set a desired speed but also maintain a desired interval to the car ahead so you enjoy the benefits of cruise control in light traffic.
The Blind Spot Information (BSI) system20 is your second pair of eyes during lane changes.
Whether backing out of parking space or onto a busy street, the ILX has your back.
Since an under-inflated tire impedes handling and can be a safety hazard, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) uses a sensor to determine if a tire's pressure is outside an acceptable range.
Like every Acura model, the ILX comes equipped with a security system. In the event of a break-in, the following events will occur:
