What You Will Like

The Acura ILX is an entry-level compact luxury car. Despite its diverse feature set and high-end badge, the ILX actually starts at under $27,000. Being smaller than traditional luxury cars means that the ILX is right at home in the city, where parallel parking a large vehicle might be problematic. Buyers who don't necessarily want or need a large car may find themselves in the enviable position of being able to get luxury appointments in a small urban-friendly package.

Introduction

The 2019 Acura ILX traces its ancestry to the Honda Civic of the recent past, but this year it receives a round of updates that give it a more contemporary feel.

The 2019 ILX now comes with new active safety and driver-assistance technology, including automatic emergency braking, active lane control, adaptive cruise control, and lane-departure warnings. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility is standard on all but the base model. With a resigned front end, the ILX now looks more like its Acura siblings, too.

Acura offers the ILX in a single trim level, but it can be fitted with one or two of the three available option groups: Premium, A-Spec, and Technology.

New features have been added to the sportier-looking A-Spec edition including Ebony or Red leather sport seats, 18-inch wheels, darkened headlights and taillights, and a gloss black decklid spoiler.

Every ILX has front-wheel drive and the same powertrain: a 201-horsepower 4-cylinder engine that produces 180 pound-feet of torque, coupled to an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Paddle shifters are standard.

The NHTSA gave the 2019 ILX a five-star rating overall. The IHHS rated the 2019 ILX “Good” in each of its instrumented crash-tests, but its headlights held it back from earning a Top Safety Pick award.

Lineup

Prices do not include $995 destination charge.

The base ILX Sedan ($25,900) comes with a moonroof, 10-way power driver’s seat, heated front seats, synthetic leather upholstery, USB port, Bluetooth connectivity, LED headlights and taillights, dual-zone climate control, 17-inch alloy wheels, paddle shifters, and keyless ignition.

ILX with Premium Package ($27,650) adds Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, an 8.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment, leather seat trim, sport seats, power passenger seat, blind-spot monitors, and satellite and HD radio.

ILX with Premium and A-Spec Packages ($29,650) adds 18-inch wheels, aluminum pedals, side spoilers, a decklid spoiler, LED foglights, and leather-trimmed seats with ultrasuede inserts.

ILX with Technology Package ($29,550) includes navigation, a 10-speaker ELS audio system, real-time traffic, and a multi-view rearview camera.

ILX with Technology and A-Spec Packages ($31,550) combines contents of the Technology and A-Spec option groups.

Walkaround

The ILX has a revamped look that works well with its basic shape—and with Acura’s other sedans and crossovers.

Seven-element LED headlights lead the way, flanking a large, angular grille, leading into a more sharply sculpted hood. Echoing front-end appearance, LED taillights are mounted at the decklid. New wheel designs have emerged, too.

Interior

The cabin is finished well, though it falls short of opulence. The front and rear seats have been reshaped, and can be fitted with high-contrast stitching. Drivers now have two-way power lumbar support.

On the dashboard, which sits relatively low, base models get a standard audio system with many buttons. Premium models get an 8.0-inch touchscreen.

Fitted with a standard moonroof, the low roofline trims some headroom, especially in the back seat. Front seats are comfortable otherwise, with eight-way power adjustment for the driver. Synthetic leather upholstery is standard in lower trim levels. Legroom is fine in the rear, for a compact sedan.

Acura has installed a new dual-screen infotainment system, finally making Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility optional or standard.

Cargo volume is 12.4 cubic feet – sufficient for a large suitcase.

Driving Impressions

Acura’s compact sedan is a willing performer, if not up to the high bar of some of its European rivals. The powertrain issues some pleasing sounds, and a hint of sportiness emerges when the ILX is pushed.

With its soft ride, the ILX makes a fine commuter car. With the 18-inch wheels included in the A-Spec package, the ILX grows more firm and insistent, thanks to a taut suspension and low-profile tires.

The ILX engine is feisty especially as it’s mated to its 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. With 201 horsepower on tap, the 2.4-liter 4-cylinder revs happily toward a high (6,800-rpm) redline. Under most conditions, it yields spirited acceleration. Whether controlled by paddle shifters or left on its own, the transmission is a delightful companion.

Fuel economy also is reasonably good, though premium gasoline is needed. The ILX is EPA-rated at 24/34 mpg City/Highway, or 28 mpg Combined.

Summary

Acura’s ILX provides reasonably inexpensive luxury. Safety technology is abundant on all but the base version. For $1,750, the Premium package turns the ILX from what is basically an economy car into a modest-budget luxury automobile.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
