2016 Acura ILX First Impressions

The 2016 Acura ILX is a thoroughly enjoyable car with great driving dynamics, strong power and a crisp new transmission. The minor gripes are slow-to-respond interfaces, which may grate on the nerves of impatient, tech-savvy millennials. However, if they live near any decent roads at all, the ILX will more than redeem itself.

The 2016 Acura ILX is a mid-cycle refresh of the brand’s entry level small sedan. Visually it’s a small upgrade, with a new grille, new LED headlights and taillights and a new trim with a body kit. Under the skin the Acura ILX is a whole new story with a brand new engine and a funky new gearbox that combines the smooth operation of a torque converter from a conventional automatic with the sporty feel of a dual-clutch automated manual.
