A surprising little car
Nothing as of yet.
The ILX is a very quick and snippy car that you wouldn't know until you drive it. The 2.4L iVTEC 4 cylinder is sedate at low RPMs, but is a total screamer up high in the rev range. All while being super smooth.
It has a good looking exterior, if on the conservative side, but it looks upscale and looks more expensive than the asking price.
The interior is put together very well and fits in well with the rest of the Acura line. Noise levels are on the higher side, but it adds to the sporty nature of the car.
The seats and overall comfort of the interior are very good. Stereo system on the premium package could be more powerful, but it's OK.
The transmission (6 speed manual) is an utter joy to row through the gears. It has a mechanical feel, and coupled with a slick and light clutch, it makes shifting so much more fun than an autobox.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
