The industry’s first 8-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission with torque converter is standard on every ILX. The design enables lightning-fast shifting and smooth response. It’s particularly impressive when using paddle shifters to control engine speed on curved or mountain roads.
Active noise cancelation listens to ambient engine and wind noise, and produces an equal but reverse sound through the audio system. The two sounds cancel each other out for a smooth and quiet ride.
Permission to stare: Granted. Performance-driven details such as side sills, rear spoiler and fog lights elevate the overall appearance. Complemented by Jewel Eye® LED headlights and LED taillights, each leaves an impression — both coming and going.
To avoid a crowded center panel, we developed an available intuitive touchscreen On Demand Multi-Use Display™ (ODMD™) that consolidates the controls you need at any given moment. Up to 10 different audio sources can be directly accessed so you no longer need to repeatedly hit a button to select your desired audio source. Every panel can be quickly operated and each display is uniquely designed for a particular task. A shortcut button delivers quick access to your favorite audio presets, navigation locations or contacts. When valet parking, another shortcut lets you disable access to various locations and functions. These include the trunk, glove box, navigation, phone and audio controls. The ODMD™ can instantly display current status for audio and climate functions without disturbing the upper display screen. This feature is particularly useful when using the navigation system.
The ELS Studio® Premium Audio System reproduces studio quality sound. Surround sound fills the car from any digital source. Get extended range, lower distortion and enhanced clarity for an audio experience like no other.
The A-SPEC Package takes style to the next level. Choose 18-inch wheels, side sills, trunk spoiler, fog lights, aluminum pedals, red interior lighting accents, gray contrast stitching and black headliner. Plus, perforated Lux Suede® seat inserts share similar refinements as those in the NSX.
Acura’s Jewel Eye® LED headlight technology mimics the natural sunlight using ten separate LED lamps. The intense, focused beams of light help you to view colors more vividly and reduce fatigue at night.
The Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® System helps reduce the potential for driving distractions. Use voice commands to make and answer calls through the sophisticated ILX audio system. Directional microphones ensure your voice is clearly heard. A simple one-time pairing process automatically syncs your phone’s contacts.
The first line of defense in collision safety is in the structure of the car itself, our Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ body construction is integrated into every Acura model, including the ILX to help reduce and disperse forces in front crashes with virtually any sized car.
Distractions happen, so the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ can alert you to obstacles detected ahead. It's programmed to provide visual alerts when it determines a crash is possible- and if you don't react, it can brake for you.
