Beauty, meet Beast. Sophisticated and quick for life in the fast lane, the ILX has sporty innovations from the iconic NSX. With special supercar DNA that delivers lightning-quick gratification from a precise powertrain, the ILX is a lightweight powerhouse. The impressive 201-hp, 2.4-liter, i-VTEC® engine in the ILX gives it one of the best power-to-weight ratios in its class.

The ILX is equipped with amplitude reactive dampers that give you the best of whatever the situation demands. They operate in two unique performance zones, offering both a composed, comfortable ride and precise handling. The ILX further redefines the compact sport-sedan category. Its aggressive styling makes a bold statement, while the high-revving standard 201-hp engine turns every road you encounter into a driving revelation. New to the ILX is a world’s first 8-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) with torque converter. The 8-speed DCT is always a step ahead, delivering rapid yet smooth transitions. Lightning-fast responses quicker than you can say “shift.” With paddle shifters on all trims, you’ll experience total control and a more direct connection to the car.

Whether on the track or on the street, we apply the same focused passion toward creating vehicles that deliver superior performance that is technically audacious and reassuringly precise. The redesigned ILX comes with standard Jewel Eye LED headlights and LED taillights—an aggressive style to match the confidence you feel behind the wheel.

And the ILX is perfect for when you want to get away. AcuraLink® can send destination information directly to your car and reroute your journey based on street and freeway conditions.
