The Sporty, Confident 2017 Acura ILX Performance
If you’re looking for a luxury compact that’s a strong performer, then look no further than the 2017 Acura ILX performance. The ILX is a high-energy, streamlined piece of machinery. With its simple, focused powertrain, finely-tuned suspension, and superior handling, the ILX should be at the top of your list. Check out all the details:
The ILX comes with a 2.4L i-VTEC engine that puts out the perfect amount of strength and power—201 hp at 6,800 rpm and 180 lb-ft of torque at 3,600 rpm. The direct injection system distributes fuel that’s been pressurized at up to 2,900 psi, which means the engine is working at a higher level of power and efficiency. Acceleration is solid and reliable, which is exactly what you need.
The engine is paired with an eight-speed, dual-clutch transmission that applies the power of a torque converter. The result is quick, sporty shifting that’s smooth and perfect for high performance situations. Paddle shifters are included on all ILX trims, which gives you more connection to the car and the road by letting you shift gears when you feel the time is right. This feature helps achieve a true sports car feel behind the wheel.
Suspension and Handling
The ILX’s four-wheel independent strut suspension is brilliantly engineered with Amplitude Reactive Dampers that operate in two different “zones.” Based on the zone, the car will respond with the right precision and comfortable response to the road. The ILX achieves superior handling through its responsive, defined, and sport-tuned steering. Your driving decisions are more accurate and dynamic, giving you more control and making you feel more secure.
The ILX is extremely competitive when it comes to fuel efficiency. Its Government of Canada’s estimated 9.4 city, 6.8 highway, and 8.2 combined L/100 km will keep you on the road and away from the pump for long stretches of time.
