Given its affordable starting price and excellent external appearance, the 2024 Acura ILX appears to be one of the best values in the luxury sedan segment. This model looks attractive and is a rebadged Honda Civic with a less appealing list of standard amenities. In general, it lacks the aggressive driving qualities we anticipate in this class, but it finally has an updated interior.
Like before, the new model will be powered by a potent 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 201 horsepower. On top of that, it has good fuel economy, and the ride is comfortable. The Audi A3, the BMW 2-series Gran Coupe, and the Mercedes-Benz A-class are models that cost much more, but neither of them provides better value for money than the ILX model.
2024 Acura ILX Design
The advantages or disadvantages of the 2024 Acura ILX’s external appearance are immaterial because everyone has their own preferences. The present corporate style strategy, however, has more to speak for itself than the previous one, which is a positive thing, in our opinion.
A-Spec upgrades like a black mesh grille and gray alloy wheels unquestionably give the vehicle more presence. There is also some new colors, and you can get premium pearl-effect paint finishes in white, black, blue, or red for about $500.
There are many good things about the upcoming 2024 Acura ILX luxury sedan, but there are also a few bad things. First of all, there is a lot of room up front, the seats are comfortable, and you can choose from a few nice color schemes.
It’s hard for us to believe that we’re actually saying this, but the display on the basic infotainment system is still outdated despite updates. However, there is now Apple CarPlay or Android Auto smartphone integration, which is a big plus. As for legroom, the new sedan offers only 34 inches in the back, which isn’t very much. The back seats do, however, split and fold, giving you a little more room to carry things.
2024 Acura ILX Engine Specs
The only propulsion system is a four-cylinder engine capable of producing 201 horsepower and coupled to a silky smooth eight-speed automated gearbox. Front-wheel drive is standard. Although the ILX isn’t the fastest vehicle in its class, but its engine revs effortlessly.
Fuel efficiency statistics for the ILX is 24 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the interstate, making it comparable to front-wheel-drive models of the A3 and A-class. Visit the website of the EPA for further details on the ILX’s efficiency in terms of fuel consumption.
How Much Will Cost the New 2024 Acura ILX?
The base model costs $27,300, including a destination charge, while the Premium package is an additional $2,000, as does the A-Spec package. The Technology and A-Spec packages cost the most, at $33,200.
This is still less expensive than the entry-level Mercedes-Benz A-Class, which starts at about $34,000. The new Audi A3 is in the same ballpark, while the Genesis G70 begins at a little over $37.5k. As far as we know, the new 2024 Acura ILX will hit stores sometime next year, probably after summer.
