The performance of the 2018 Acura ILX transports you to a higher level of driving, where even daily commutes are a venue for exhilaration. Just a few of its top-tier features include:

  • 8-Speed dual-clutch transmission
  • Up to 25 mpg city/35 mpg highway*
  • Performance-focused A-SPEC package

Let’s explore how they refine your drive to the cutting-edge of modern performance.

Powertrain and MPG Ratings

At the heart of Acura ILX performance is a state-of-the-art powertrain:

  • 2.4L Direct Injection 4-Cylinder: Produces up to 201 @ 6,800 rpm and 180 lb-ft of torque @ 3,800 rpm for an inimitable sense of spirit.
  • 8-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission: Developed for racing, dual-clutch transmission holds the next gear up or down ready for faster and smoother shifts. Sequential SportShift paddle shifters let you take manual control.

Such sophisticated engineering allows the new ILX to blend track-like road behavior with up to 25 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway.*

2018 Acura ILX A-SPEC Package

Bolder exterior and interior details mark the Acura ILX A-SPEC as something different from rival luxury sedans around Plainfield and Aurora. The A-SPEC Package includes:

  • 18-Inch Noise-Reducing Wheels: Resonators absorb the sound of air that bounces between the tires and wheels.
  • A-SPEC Rear Spoiler: Sharpens the ILX’s style while improving driving dynamics.
  • Side Sills: This smart aerodynamic enhancement reduces downforce for a tighter ride.

Further features include:

  • Red instrument panel illumination
  • Perforated Lux Suede seating surfaces with contrast stitching and ebony headliner
  • Aluminum pedals 
  • Fog lights
