2018 Acura Ilx Picture, Release date, and Review

Sponsored Links

In regards to price and feature content, the 2018 Acura ILX undercuts other entry-level luxury sedans by a considerable margin. That alone should get shoppers’ attention. Unfortunately, the notion of value begins to fade when you realize that the ILX falls well short of the standards set by its more expensive rivals. The ride quality is overly stiff, the interior lacks refinement, the engine is comparably weak and the infotainment system leaves much to be desired. For these reasons, we don’t consider it worthy of competing against Audi, Mercedes or BMW. Instead, we think of the ILX as a slightly nicer Honda Civic.

what’s new

A new Special Edition package with minor cosmetic additions debuts. Otherwise, the ILX returns unchanged.

we recommend

Acura’s collision alerts tend to be overly sensitive and annoying, so we suggest skipping the AcuraWatch package in favor of the Premium package that delivers more useful features. We also caution against the A-Spec package’s 18-inch wheels that can hurt ride quality without any appreciable gains in performance.

trim levels & features

The 2018 Acura ILX is an entry-level luxury sedan that is available in seven different trims: base, a new SpecialEditionAcuraWatch PlusPremiumPremium A-SpecTech Plus and Tech Plus A-Spec. All trims are powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine (201 horsepower, 180 pound-feet of torque) that sends power to the front wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission.

2018 Acura Ilx New Interior

trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the 2016 Acura ILX Technology Plus Package (2.4L inline-4 | 8-speed dual-clutch automatic | FWD).


The ILX is available with only one powertrain, a 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 201 horsepower mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. It’s about midpack acceleration-wise. Handling is decent, but at-the-limit responses should be better for a sport sedan.


Although the ILX’s front seats are comfortable and should fit a wide variety of bodies, they’re completely lacking in lateral support, which is odd for a luxury or sport sedan aimed at enthusiastic drivers. Ride quality can be surprisingly bad over bumpy surfaces.

Honda/Acura keeps clinging to its central dual-screen infotainment setup. And we keep disliking having to look at two different screens. Headroom is lacking front and rear, partly because the ILX comes with a sunroof. Outward visibility is excellent for the segment.
