Improving on the 2013 model year, Acura's 2014 ILX luxury sports sedan is now on sale and comes with a host of new standard features. These features come in the form of 17-inch alloy wheels, and several interior improvements including leather seating, leather door liners, eight-way power driver's seat, heated front seats and a multi-angle rearview camera. Also improving the driving experience is a new audio-system subwoofer and Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) system, which also comes standard in the 2014 model.
The ILX comes with two powertrain choices including the standard 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder engine with 150hp and a 5-speed automatic trans. But for the sportier buyer, there is also the option of a 2.4-liter 201hp engine mated with a close-ratio six-speed manual trans.
Built on safety and luxury, the ILX uses 59-percent high strength steel (HSS) in the body structure, while the chassis uses fully independent MacPherson strut front and a multi-link rear suspension system. Giving superior ride comfort are the Acura signature Amplitude Reactive Dampers along with the Motion Adaptive Electric Power Steering (EPS) for better steering.
Other features include a standard Keyless Access System with smart entry and pushbutton start. And appealing to the younger crowd is the Pandora interface and SMS text message function. Other available packages include the Premium and Technology Packages.
