2016 Acura ILX Review, Performance, Engine
Acura always to enter the world of the luxury sedans but they so far didn`t made it as they`ve wanted it, but now, with new 2016 Acura ILX they think that this is going to be right car for that kind of market. Surely, this car can`t be compared to the cars from Germany, like BMW, Audi or Mercedes but Acura is playing on the affordable card, they think that with the lower price and the lower fuel consumption can attract bigger number of customers. In the past, the biggest problem for Acura`s vehicles was lack of safety features so now they tried to improve that. We will have to wait a little longer to see how the customers will respond.
2016 Acura ILX Exterior and Interior
At the first sight, you can`t say that they didn`t improved new ILX, it really looks like the old version had really mature and now 2016 Acura ILX looks really grown up. Acura will try to aim for some specific interesting details like their Jewel Eye LED headlights which have ten separate bulbs that will mimic natural sunlight as much as possible. Under the headlights there will be fog lights now to give new ILX sportier look than before. One more thing that will be changed on the front part of the car is refreshed grille look. On the sides there will be newly designed side mirrors. For now, every change that Acura now give to new ILX reminds us slightly on the bigger TLX, and we can`t say that they didn`t put a lot of effort to make this one look this great.
There aren`t that much thing that changed in the interior of the 2016 Acura ILX, biggest change is that now Acura give new ILX dual screen infotainment system and now they`ve used finer materials to make more luxury cabin. Inside of the 2016 ILX there is more space than before even though the dimensions didn`t changed at all. As we mentioned before, main goal for Acura is that they try to give him more safety features, so they did it. Now, 2016 Acura ILX have collision mitigation braking system, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist, Rear view camera, stability and traction control, antilock brakes and a lot of airbags.
2016 Acura ILX Engine
Engine for new Acura will probably remain the same as in the previous model of ILX because customers likes it. 2016 Acura ILX should be equipped with 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with a power of 201 hp and 180 lb/ft of torque. This engine will go in pair with 8-speed transmission system as well in the last version. Fuel consumption for new Acura ILX is expect to be 25 mpg in the city and 36 mpg at the highway.
2016 Acura ILX Release date and Price
We expect that this new successful attempt of luxury sedan from Acura hit the markets at the end of this year or, what is likely at the beginning of the 2016. Price for the basic model of 2016 Acura ILX will be $27.000 and it can go up to $34.000 for some expensive model.
