2018 Acura ILX Gets Special Edition

A-Spec lite

The 2018 Acura ILX gains a new special edition that offers up select features from A-spec models for a lower price.

Special edition ILX sedans receive 18-inch wheels, unique badging, and aerodynamic updates like aggressive side sills and a rear spoiler from A-spec models.

Like all other ILX cars, the Special Edition also comes with a one-touch power moonroof, keyless entry and push-button start, rearview camera, LED headlights, an 8-way power driver's seat, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter.

The 2018 Acura ILX Special Edition starts at $29,850, or $800 more than the base model. Compare that to the Premium A-Spec that runs from $33,050 and the top-of-the-line Tech Plus A-Spec that goes for $36,050. In addition to the features shared with the Special Edition, A-Spec models receive a Premium Black interior scheme with a black headliner, aluminum pedals, red instrument illumination, Lux Suede seat inserts, and gray interior stitching.

Acura last refreshed the ILX for the 2016 model year, giving it a new look and reducing the engine lineup to just one option. All ILX models are now powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder making 201 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed dual-clutch is the only available transmission.

The 2018 Acura ILX is now on sale.

Marcel Lech used to think 450 hp was all he needed to enjoy his Supra. Instead, he ended up with nearly 1,000 hp that, at best, gets used, weather permitting, only a few of days and just 2 seasons out of the year.
