Some of the new features in the Acura ILX are very nice and can make your decision on buying an Acura easier. 

The ILX features classic sport sedan proportions- an elongated hood with a short rear deck. An upward-sweeping character line stretches from the front fender to the muscular haunch. 17” aluminum alloy wheels are standard on all models and complete the sporting look. 

The 2015 Acura ILX is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 150 horsepower. A 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 201 horsepower is available. Front-wheel drive and a five-speed automatic transmission come standard. A six-speed manual transmission is standard with the 2.4-liter engine. The base 2015 ILX earns an EPA-estimated 24/35 mpg city/highway, while the more powerful engine achieves 22/31 mpg.

Settle in to 8-way adjustable heated leather seats. Grip the wheel and note the perfectly placed steering wheel controls. Choose your station or voice-command a playlist, then see it displayed at nearly eye-level on a color screen. Legroom is actually more generous in the ILX than its most direct competitor: the Lexus CT200h.

Acura/ELS Surround® Premium Audio System
Your favorite song: It takes a circuitous route from the recording studio to your ear to your soul. Thanks to Grammy® award-winning producer and engineer Elliot Scheiner—brilliant developer of the available Acura/ELS Surround® premium audio system—nothing gets lost on the journey. And thanks to Pandora® integration with your paired smartphone, it could play right when you need it most.

Multi-view Rear Camera
Standard equipment on every ILX, the multi-view rear camera50 lets you worry less about scratching your (or someone else’s) bumper. The system activates automatically when “reverse” is engaged. Three views can be displayed on the color screen—Regular, Wide Angle and Top-Down—while yellow gridlines on each help guide your parking.

The ILX comes with a 2.0 liter engine. The 2.0-liter, aluminum-alloy i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine is remarkably smooth, making it a joy to rev up to 6500 rpm where it produces 150 hp (SAE net).

-The vehicle has an EPA fuel economy rating of 24 miles per gallon city, 35 highway and 28 combined.38
-Low-friction piston rings and the ability to run on lower viscosity oil and transmission fluid help improve both engine response and fuel efficiency.
-Intelligent Variable Timing and lift Control (i-VTEC®) increases horsepower by advancing valve timing relative to engine rpm. High-rpm airflow is enhanced by opening intake valves longer and deeper at approximately 4500 rpm.
-The all-aluminum engine improves front-to-rear weight distribution to improve handling and agility.
-The Drive-by-Wire™ Throttle system enables a smooth, powerful response with just the right throttle sensitivity in every driving situation.
Dual balance shafts turn in opposite directions at twice the engine speed to reduce vibration.
