New for 2016 is the fearless 2.4L i-VTEC engine, a very lightweight engine that delivers power to spare. With a favorable power-to-weight ratio, the Acura ILX stays light on its feet and out-maneuvers most other cars in its class. Also new for this year is an eight-speed automated manual transmission that says, ?Welcome to the future.? It?s the world?s first eight-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) with torque converter and, when used in conjunction with the standard race-inspired steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, gives you unparalleled response and control.
2016 is a banner year for luxurious Acura interiors, and the ILX is no exception. In fact, if you sit back in the richly-upholstered ILX, and squint your eyes a little, you may picture yourself in a large luxury limousine. That?s because the Acura ILX has had a complete interior makeover using high-end materials, quality stitching, and intuitive technology. It now seats five comfortably, and every seat is easily accessible. Included as standard fare are an eight-way power-adjustable driver?s seat and heated front seats. The seats are plush and inviting, and the 2016 Acura ILX will make everyone inside feel like a VIP. And with a generous 12.3 cubic feet of trunk space, you will have more than enough room to take along all the important stuff that VIPs need ? like golf clubs and designer shopping bags. Among the great standard amenities are Bluetooth, Siri Eyes Free phone integration, push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, a moonroof, a 5-inch display screen, a multi-view rearview camera, a USB port, Pandora Internet radio compatibility and a six-speaker stereo system. For the ultimate in cabin convenience, treat yourself to some of these cool options:
Back in the day, if you wanted to buy the safest car, you shopped around for a bland Swedish import. Today, the 2016 Acura ILX contains the top safety features known to man. Setting the stage is Acura?s renowned Advanced Compatibilty Engineering (ACE) body structure, designed to absorb impact energy in collisions, and re-direct it away from the vehicle?s occupants. The amazing AcuraWatch driver assistance features not only keep your ILX out of harm?s way, they help make you a better driver. For example, the blind spot information system lets you know when it?s safe to change lanes, and will soon train you to overcome impulses in favor of safe driving habits. The Forward Collision Warning feature alerts you to objects ahead and, if you don?t heed the warning, it applies the brakes automatically. Even when driving in reverse, the new Acura ILX is forward-thinking, with a state-of-the-art Rear Cross Traffic Monitor that partners with the Multi-View Rear Camera to give you the big picture behind you. AcuraWatch also keeps you from drifting out of your lane, carefully monitors the road around you, and generally reduces the stress of driving in traffic. No, it does not drive the car for you, but it is a lot safer than having a back-seat driver.
Are you ready for the best news of all? The 2016 Acura ILX is quieter than a closed library. While the new ILX is making big noise in the auto industry, it produces virtually none on the road. Firstly, the ILX has aerodynamic properties that cut down on wind noise, and new noise-reduction wheels keep the road noise to a minimum. The real secret to the whisper-quiet ride, however, is the innovative Active Sound Control (ASC) system. It detects any mechanical noises leaking into the cabin, and then emits a special frequency to cancel them out. Wow! If they could only do the same to cancel out your Uncle Larry?s grating voice! For your own test-drive of the new Acura ILX on the q.t., come to Northeast Acura at 942 New Loudon Road in Latham, NY, where our knowledgeable and friendly staff can show you the ropes of the sporty Acura ILX. We hope to see you soon!View Inventory
