Calgary, Get Ready for the 2016 Acura ILX Sedan
2016 Acura ILX Performance & Economy
Like a newly elected politician with a mandate, the 2016 Acura ILX has taken steps to distance itself from its predecessors. 2016 will mean something different than 2015: a lone engine powers each new ILX, specifically a 2.4L direct-injection I-4 that sets the bar high at 201 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. An 8-speed automatic transmission completes the powertrain, with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters giving you the option to direct your performance further. And you might expect this large engine to be less fuel efficient than its slightly smaller predecessor, but early EPA estimates of 36 mpg on the highway are so far showing anything but.
2016 Acura ILX Interior
The Acura design team has long been known for balancing a sporty feel in their automobiles with the type of inner refinement that remains tasteful throughout the years, even as design aesthetics evolve. What it has are fine materials, supportive seats, lots of near and considerate storage spaces, and plenty of what is perhaps the greatest luxury in a smaller car, room. Still, the new ILX delivers on the technology front, with available navigation, an SMS text-messaging feature that will read your texts out loud to you, a universal garage door opener, and a whole host of additional amenities that may encourage you to take the scenic route more often.
2016 Acura ILX Safety
In the past, critics of the ILX routinely pointed to its lack of advanced safety features like blind spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control when comparing it to its competition. But the new 2016 Acura ILX takes away this convenient argument and leaves the reviewers with nothing to offer but their respect and praise. With a multi-view backup camera and many other active safety technologies like lane keeping alerts, forward collision mitigation, and rear-cross traffic alert, the new ILX gives you eyes on the back of your head when all other eyes will be on your new ride.
