2015 Acura ILX Hybrid, Review, Price and Concept – Welcome to Neocarsuv.com, we will provide the latest information about the Acura ILX. 2015 Acura ILX hybrid is one brand new car from Acura that was released in 2015. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2015 Acura ILX.
Now, the 2015 Acura ILX is a well-rounded compact premium sedan for those who want features and comfort, but don’t mind sacrificing performance. With many luxury brands now dipping into the accessible end of the entry-level premium market, can Acura compete with a vehicle that is both affordable and desirable?… That’s exactly what the 2015 Acura ILX aims to do attract hip retirees and up-and-coming young professionals with its somewhat sporty, fuel-efficient small sedan. And, it comes with the service you’d expect from a luxury brand, too.
The 2015 Acura ILX is barely a luxury car if you go by its sticker price. And for that reason we don’t hold it against the brand that they’re not offering some of the higher-end items you’ll find in slightly more expensive sedans, such as radar-adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and heads-up displays. Granted, the brand is making big steps to head up-market with its RLX flagship sedan and future NSX super car, but there’s still room for the ILX, which no only offers the slow-selling Hybrid model for 2015. With that in mind, the ILX holds its own as a well-equipped, pleasant-driving, and comfortable compact sedan.
2015 Acura ILX Price. | Pricing for the new 2015 Acura ILX has been set at $27,050 – $29,350 based on current exchange rates. If there are changes on the 2015 Acura ILX we will notify you as soon as possible, so keep follow our blog.
The 2015 Acura ILX is among the least expensive luxury cars on the market, so we don’t begrudge the brand for not offering some of the technologies reserved for its flagship RLX sedan. And otherwise, for the most part, the ILX is a well-equipped small sedan, and you don’t need to pile on expensive options to get a desirable car.
As of last year, leather upholstery and active noise cancellation are among the new features added to all models of the ILX. An eight-way power driver’s seat, heated front seats, and a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera system have also all been added as standard. Two primary packages are available to upgrade from the base specification, the Technology Package and the Premium Package. Add the Technology Package and you get premium audio with USB and Pandora integration, a navigation system with voice recognition, a rear-view camera system, and real-time traffic and weather info. With the Premium Package you get leather seating surfaces; eight-way power adjustable driver seat; two-way heated front seats; an auto-dimming rearview mirror; a multi-view rear camera; a premium sound system with Bluetooth, USB, and Pandora functionality.

The ILX includes a long list of standard features such as keyless access with push-button ignition, heated exterior mirrors, aluminum wheels, speed sensing wipers, leather steering wheel and shift knob, Bluetooth cellular and audio connectivity, Pandora internet radio, power glass sunroof and a rearview camera. Standard safety features include electronic stability and traction control, active front head restraints, tire pressure monitoring, six airbags and anti-lock brakes with panic assist. Premium and Technology packages provide even more luxury features such as a navigation system with real-time traffic, HomeLink and a 10-speaker Acura/ELS sound system.
Going by the exterior look, the ILX carries no sign of the Civic. With its low and wide proportions, long hood, and short rear deck, the ILX already sets itself aside. Add in the aerodynamic character lines and Acura’s signature front-end look and this is a sedan that has nice proportions and lots of crisp detail and more nuance to the sheetmetal.
Inside, the center stack is placed high for good eyes-up visibility, while there are focused, easy-to-read instrument and information displays carrying across the main panel. The rear-seat area is more plainly finished, but nonetheless feels part of the overall cabin.
The ILX is available with two powertrain choices: a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine linked to a five-speed automatic transmission or a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine linked to a six-speed manual transmission.
There are two versions of the ILX available, named for their drivetrains: the 2.0 and the 2.4L. The 2.0L offers a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine rated at 150 horsepower and 140 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed automatic with paddle shifters is standard. It scores an EPA-estimated gas mileage rating of 24 mpg city and 35 mpg highway.
The 2.4L is the sporty model, with what is essentially the Civic Si’s 201-horsepower, 170-pound-foot 2.4-liter four-cylinder mated to a six-speed manual transmission–no automatic is offered with this model. What’s disappointing is that the suspension in the 2.4L is essentially the same as the rest of the ILX lineup, and it’s not as sharp as we’d like in spirited driving. Across the lineup, you get handling that’s crisp and responsive, but nothing approaching the driving experience of, say, Acura’s outgoing, half-size-larger TSX sport sedan.
