Back in April 2012, Acura was releasing the ILX entry-level luxury sedan which is basically a Civic with an improved running gear, better interior components, and a more polished ride quality. This is a car that worked for Acura as it offers all the bells and whistles of its more expensive models at a fraction of the cost. The 2017 Acura ILX is their latest offering, a slightly updated car which will continue on the market for at least a couple more years. This is a bit surprising considering that Honda already released their new Civic but the Acura is still a great car for the price and it wouldn’t make sense to change anything.

So far one of the largest problems with the ILX has been the infotainment system. This is because it uses two separate LCD screens which might get a bit too confusing sometimes. However, leaving this aside, the build quality is great, the driving position is good while the materials are well above those on the base Civic.
