2019 Acura ILX Introduction

The 2019 Acura ILX traces its ancestry to the Honda Civic of the recent past, but this year it receives a round of updates that give it a more contemporary feel.

The 2019 ILX now comes with new active safety and driver-assistance technology, including automatic emergency braking, active lane control, adaptive cruise control, and lane-departure warnings. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility is standard on all but the base model. With a resigned front end, the ILX now looks more like its Acura siblings, too.

Acura offers the ILX in a single trim level, but it can be fitted with one or two of the three available option groups: Premium, A-Spec, and Technology.

New features have been added to the sportier-looking A-Spec edition including Ebony or Red leather sport seats, 18-inch wheels, darkened headlights and taillights, and a gloss black decklid spoiler.

Every ILX has front-wheel drive and the same powertrain: a 201-horsepower 4-cylinder engine that produces 180 pound-feet of torque, coupled to an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Paddle shifters are standard.

The NHTSA gave the 2019 ILX a five-star rating overall. The IHHS rated the 2019 ILX “Good” in each of its instrumented crash-tests, but its headlights held it back from earning a Top Safety Pick award.
