2022 Acura ILX
Acura is a luxury brand. This brand targets a slightly different market than its main competitor, Lexus. The Acura ILX offers elegant styling and comfortable interior space. Here are the specifications of the brand new 2022 Acura ILX.
The standard engine is a 2.0L four-cylinder that produces up to 201 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired with an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. This uses paddle shifters to deliver sportier acceleration and smooth shifting. It delivers combined fuel efficiency of 11.9 km/L.
The infotainment system in the ILX includes Bluetooth, a touch screen, Android Auto, Apple’s CarPlay, an eight-speaker audio system, HD Radio, a USB port, and a moonroof. The 2022 Acura ILX base model also has Siri Eyes Free integration in the infotainment system. This allows you to use your iPhone's voice control features through the vehicle's interface.
A rearview camera is standard on all trims. Other driver assistance features include:
- Front and rear parking sensors.
- Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.
- Rain-sensing windshield wipers.
Acura ILX offers a standard 10-way power-adjustable driver seat with four-way power lumbar support, a front passenger seat with four-way power adjustment, heated front seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
Seating options include available heated rear outboard seats, leather-trimmed interior, and leather-trimmed interior with Ultrasuede. In addition, the ILX has an available dual-zone automatic climate control system that allows drivers and the front passenger to choose their climate settings.
Acura has a reputation for delivering high-quality safety features. In the new 2022 Acura ILX, they're continuing that tradition. Here are some of the top features:
Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: You can find the best angle between the three camera options for your driving needs.
Lane Keeping Assist System: When your car drifts into another lane without a turn signal, it will gently guide it back into its intended lane and provide audible alerts.
Blind Spot Information System (BSI): If there's a vehicle in one of your blind spots, BSI will display an alert light on the corresponding side mirror. It also provides audible alerts when you use your turn signal and there's a vehicle in your blind spot.
The ILX comes with accents and textured chrome, which creates a glistening effect on the car's surface when it’s wet. The ILX also comes with a headlight equipped with sensors that detect when it's raining and automatically apply a layer of mud to the windshield, thereby slowly eroding it to allow you to see clearly through the windshield while driving in any weather condition.
The interiors have been designed to feel luxurious and well-appointed. The seats are made from materials developed for use in spaceships, so they’re comfortable and have excellent breathability for those long days spent driving. The dashboard is made of mahogany and features an ergonomically designed steering wheel covered in plush leather.
The new Acura ILX is a class above its competition in the small car segment. It's not a luxury sedan priced at $33,900, though it could be mistaken as one with its quiet cabin, rich leather seats, and elegant styling.
