Acura’s premium sport compact sedan offers a high-revving 201hp DOHC i-VTEC® engine with 180 ft-lb of torque, a race inspired 8-speed dual clutch transmission, and innovative technology like ELS STUDIO® Premium Audio, Apply CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, and the AcuraWatch™ suite of safety and driver assistance. Rated No. 2 in the luxury subcompact sedans, the top auto analysis resources distill the 2021 Acura ILX’s most prominent features.

Affordable Luxury

With MSRP starting at just $26,100, Car & Driver notes that you’ll get the biggest bang for your buck with this make and model. “The 2021 ILX is one of the best deals among subcompact luxury sedans. We think that value is optimized with the optional Premium and Technology packages.” Car & Driver adds that “standard equipment is plentiful and includes a sunroof, heated sport seats with power adjustments for the driver and dual-zone automatic climate control. [And this] smallest Acura sedan has excellent brake-pedal feedback.” Edmunds highlights its good fuel economy.

Punchy Performance

Based on the previous-generation Honda Civic platform, the ILX boasts tight and agile dynamics. MotorTrend says, “Acceleration feels zippy thanks to its naturally aspirated engine and smart-shifting dual-clutch automatic transmission. A smooth and quiet ride isn't sacrificed for the ILX's sportiness.” In MotorTrend testing, the ILX reached 60 mph in 6.4 seconds. The publication also emphasizes its comfortable front seats with supportive bolstering and ample legroom.

Sophisticated Safety Technology

The ILX earned a five-star crash-test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Key safety features that stand out to Car & Driver include standard forward-collision warning, automated emergency braking, lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist in addition to the available blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. Edmunds underscores the new navigation system that adds real-time traffic information.
