The Acura ILX is an entry-level luxury car for Honda's luxury brand Acura. It replaces the Canada-exclusive Acura CSX and is a new model for the U.S. Like the preceding CSX, the Acura ILX is related to the Honda Civic.
The concept version of both the gasoline and hybrid models was unveiled at the 2011 North American International Auto Show. The production versions were presented in the 2012 Chicago Auto Show. Mass production commenced on April 23, 2012 at Honda's assembly facility in Greens burg, Indiana and U.S. sales began in May 2012.
The EPA fuel economy rating of the hybrid version is 39 mpg (6.0 L/100 km; 47 mpg) for city and 38 mpg(6.2 L/100 km; 46 mpg) on highway driving.
Major options are grouped into Premium and Technology packages and include leather upholstery, 17" alloy wheels, navigation system, premium audio system with Sirius XM satellite radio, and high intensity discharge headlamps. Both option packages include a multi-view rear camera with regular, wide-angle, and top-down modes.
The ILX's body in white utilizes 59% high strength steel ranging from 440-980 MPa yield strength grades, aluminum is used for the hood and front bumper beam. Compared to the Civic the ILX uses Acura's "Amplitude Reactive" dampers and a larger more rigid steering shaft for improved handling and ride quality characteristics.
