Luxury and performance

2017 ILX

The 2017 Acura ILX has been designed to represent the Acura brand, giving Houston drivers an entry-level sedan that is both luxurious and affordable. Enjoy the good life while climbing up the corporate ladder with the ILX, the luxury sedan for the young professional.



Powerful and agile

Each ILX sports a 201-hp 4-cylinder engine under the hood, showing drivers that this compact sport sedan has power to match its style. Features like the standard 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and performance pedals help you get the most out of the 2017 Acura ILX performance.

  • 2017 Acura ILX Engine

    2.4L 4-Cylinder Engine

    The 2.4L 4-cylinder engine of the Acura TLX is under the hood of the ILX as well, bringing 201 hp and 180 lb.-ft. of torque. A traditional engine design delivers immediate throttle response instead of the lag often found on turbocharged competitors, and that’s without compromising on power.

    8-Speed Dual Clutch Transmission

    The standard dual-clutch transmission features a smooth response and lightning-fast shifting. There’s no need to worry about a manual transmission on the ILX, either; either let the transmission take care of itself or take charge with the steering wheel–mounted paddle shifters.

  • 2017 Acura ILX MacPherson Struts

    Advanced Suspension

    A front suspension supported by MacPherson struts works in combination with a rear multi-link suspension for smoother riding and a more responsive handling. The rear suspension design also opens up the rear part of the cabin, giving passengers more legroom.

    Vehicle Stability Assist

    This feature works in combination with the ILX’s antilock brakes to reduce the risk of over- or understeering. By monitoring speed, lateral G-forces, and other specs, this system can sense if the torque needs to be adjusted and apply individual wheel brakes automatically to keep the ILX stable.

  • 2017 Acura ILX Steering System

    Steering System

    A tight steering system leads to improved control behind the wheel with a linear response to turns whether driving in town or on the highway. It’s these little enhancements, ones that come from days of testing steering column rigidity and mount assembly, that lead to a superior car like the ILX.

    Performance Pedals

    Steering wheels are designed to feel just right in your hands, but the proper sport sedan requires just as much attention be paid to its pedals. Polished aluminum pedals with a black grip keep you in control during even the most spirited of driving maneuvers.


Turn heads

Classic luxury fuses with aggressive sport styling to create the ILX, one of the sleekest sedans in and around Houston. Acura elegance can be seen in every curve, from the front end’s Acura-exclusive Jewel Eye LED headlights to the distinctive styling of the rear wheel overhangs. The ILX’s standard and available advanced safety features are integrated seamlessly into the design, too.

    Jewel Eye LED Headlights

    These Acura-exclusive headlights are standard on the ILX, giving the front end a distinctive look with the lights on or off. Five LEDs in each headlight offer a bright road ahead while the reflectors sparkle in the sunlight, earning them their name and jewel-like appearance.

  • Houston Acura Dealers

    Multi-View Rear Camera

    Each ILX has a multi-angle rearview camera as standard. Just shift into reverse and the camera displays one of three views—standard, top-down, or wide-angle—complete with guidelines for peace of mind when backing up.


Well-Appointed comfort

Features like Active Noise Cancelation and smart design make the cabin of the ILX spacious and inviting. With seating for up to five passengers and some of the latest in connectivity and infotainment features available, Acura’s entry-level sedan gives drivers a true look at what the luxury car world is like.

    Automatic Climate Control

    Dual-zone climate control ensures the ILX is kept comfy, just as warm or cool as the driver and front passenger need. An available GPS-linked system actually tracks the location of the sun and adjusts climate settings to account for the warmth of its rays.

    ELS Studio Premium Audio System

    Enjoy studio-quality audio in the ILX with the available ELS Premium Audio system. Engineered by Grammy Award–winning sound engineer Elliot Scheiner, this stereo elevates your driving soundtrack to bold new heights with enhanced clarity and an extended frequency range.

  • 2017 Acura ILX On Demand Multi-Use Display

    On Demand Multi-Use Display (ODMD)

    The ILX puts you in direct control of vehicle and media settings with its On-Demand Multi-Use Display (ODMD). Rather than have a button for every feature, cluttering the dash, this touchscreen streamlines the ILX console and makes it intuitive, providing the buttons you need for when you need them.

  • 2017 Acura ILX Siri Eyes Free

    Siri Eyes Free

    It’s not only unsafe to text and drive; it’s also illegal in most states. Acura knows some drivers need to stay connected, though, and iPhone users can take advantage of their familiar digital concierge Siri with the standard Siri Eyes Free connectivity. Android users, don’t worry, SMS texting for Android has you covered.


Engineered for safety

The latest Acura models are always going to represent some of the safest cars on the road, and that’s true about the standard ILX, with Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure and the AcuraWatch Plus package with available driver assistance and accident prevention features. These amenities enhance safety alongside auto staples like three-point seat belts and a suite of airbags.

    Collision Mitigation Braking System

    A key part of the AcuraWatch Plus package, this safety feature can apply the brakes automatically if it senses a possible collision.

  • 2017 Acura ILX ACE Body Structure

    ACE Body Structure

    Acura starts with safety from the beginning, with the very frame of the ILX built to redistribute accident energy during a collision. Crumple zones help to keep the cabin a safer space and reduce the risk of injury.

  • 2017 Acura ILX Lane Keeping Assist

    Lane Keeping Assist

    By monitoring the markings on the pavement, this advanced safety feature can detect if the ILX is starting to drift from its lane. After warning the driver of a potential drift, it can give the wheel a slight nudge to keep you centered in your lane.

  • 2017 Acura ILX Blind Spot Information

    Blind Spot Information System

    You can know if a car is in your blind spot without turning your head thanks to the ILX Blind Spot Information system. Radar at the rear of the vehicle detects cars in the blind spot and lights up a warning on the front windshield pillar.
