The 2014 Acura ILX’s exterior has been described as “subtly elegant.” There has often been negative feedback towards Acura’s shield-style grille, but this feature fits better with the ILX body type. The 2014 ILX also employs a more contemporary body style, eschewing the somewhat offputting futuristic luxury car concept.
The 2014 ILX has plenty of room up front and comes pretty nicely equipped throughout with quality materials and attractive designs. However, there is limited leg/headroom in the back seats. The ILX has a wide range of standard amenities, like keyless entry, dual-zone climate control and a power tilt/slide moonroof, Bluetooth capability, an iPhone-compatible USB port, text messaging and Pandora radio. New in 2014 is leather seating, and also an 8-way power driver’s seat.
Additional technological features include dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless ignition and entry, Bluetooth and audio connectivity. There is also a 6-speaker audio system with a USB/iPod interface, and Pandora integration as noted above.
The ILX 1.5L Hybrid is by far the most fuel efficient version of Acura’s ILX, clocking in at 39 mpg/ city, and 38 mpg/ highway. It comes equipped with a 1.5L inline-4 + electric motor, that produces 111 hp @ 5,500 rpm, 127 lb-ft of torque @ 1,000-3,500 rpm.
The ILX comes equipped with a variety of safety features, including emergency brake assist, and dusk sensing headlamps too. The 2014 Acura ILX also scored a 5-star rating from NHTSA for driver protection during an accident. The ILX also earned 5 stars overall in collision protection from the NHSTA, showing how safe this vehicle is.
