2019 Acura ILX Review Snippets

  • “The 2019 Acura ILX comes with good standard safety gear.” – The Car Connection
  • “The ILX’s below-average base price and lengthy list of standard and optional features make it an appealing vehicle.” – U.S. News & World Report

What Do Top Publications Have to Say About the 2019 ILX?

CNET praised the Acura ILX’s revised design dues. While the outgoing model adopted the more sedate styling you might expect from a premium sedan, the 2019 model goes for something fresher. Everything from the A-pillar forward has been reworked, and the ILX now showcases the sharp face that’s come to mark out the Acura brand.

You’ll immediately notice a Diamond Pentagon grille sitting front and center, Jewel Eye headlights to the side, and aggressively creased body panels — it’s like the car was designed to turn heads around St. Clair Shores.

The team at Car and Driver enjoyed the Acura ILX’s ability to bring plenty of top-tier features as standard, including the following AcuraWatch driver assist technologies:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)
  • Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW) System
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW) System
  • Further standard features include:
  • Automatic Headlights
  • Heated Front Seats
  • Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control
  • 8-Way Power Driver’s Seat
  • Proximity Entry and Push-Button Start

Edmunds.com admired the “unique trim and interior colors” of the A-Spec trim, which gives your ILX a bolder appearance inside and out.

Select interior and exterior A-SPEC features include:

  • 8-Inch Shark Gray Wheels
  • A-Spec Badge on the Front Fenders and Trunk
  • Gloss Black Rear Bumper Trim
  • Sport Pedals
  • A-Spec Exclusive Red Instrument Panel Illumination
