Compact Sport Sedan

2020 ILX

Loaded with first-class features and supercar-inspired design, the 2020 Acura ILX brings distinction to the compact sport sedan. ILX boasts an impressive power-to-weight ratio which means that, for its size, it’s one of the most powerful cars in its class. Faster, smoother, and more efficient, ILX’s race-inspired 8-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) was engineered for optimal agility. It’s perfect for those who like an exhilarating ride while maneuvering through the day.



Supercar Influence

When you’re focused on performance, your imagination sees possibilities everywhere. That perspective created the ILX, a driver-centric approach to engineering Acura calls Precision Crafted Performance. The 2020 ILX is available with three distinct packages: Premium, Technology, and the popular A-Spec sport appearance package – each powered by a 201-horsepower (SAE net), 2.4-liter, DOHC i-VTEC® engine and the industry’s first 8-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT) with a torque converter. This technology was born on the racetrack and the quick-shifting of the DCT directly connects the driver to the car and road. It’s a connection that optimizes not just horsepower, but also every curve in the road, every parking garage ramp, every tight roundabout, and every wide-open passing lane is an opportunity to enjoy a premium performance experience. Welcome to one of our most spirited vehicles, the 2020 Acura ILX.

    2.4-Liter Aluminum-Alloy Engine

    The aluminum block, direct-injected 2.4-liter inline-four delivers 201 high-revving horsepower, 181 lb-ft of torque and best-in-class thrills per mile. Unlike typical turbocharged engines, throttle response is immediately impactful. The engine’s light weight means nimble handling and notable fuel economy.

  • Rocky Mountain Acura Dealers

    8-Speed DCT (Dual-Clutch Transmission)

    Every 2020 ILX is equipped with a sophisticated 8-speed DCT with torque converter and Sequential SportShift paddle shifters. Originally developed for racing, the transmission changes gears through clutches – much more like a manual transmission – rather than simply a torque converter for faster, smoother shifting with greater efficiency than conventional automatic transmissions.

  • Rocky Mountain Acura Dealers

    Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters

    The true performance potential of the 8-Speed DCT is realized by paddle shifters that enable lightning-fast shifts that take only milliseconds versus a typical manual shift of about a half second. This makes lively acceleration out of a turn or engine braking down a mountain road particularly satisfying.

  • Rocky Mountain Acura Dealers

    Sophisticated Suspension

    The 2020 ILX uses a combination of MacPherson struts for the front suspension and a multi-link arrangement in the rear. Using a strut-style front suspension makes more room available for crash structure. The multi-link rear suspension maximizes second-row seating and cargo space – all while providing outstanding handling and ride quality.

  • Rocky Mountain Acura Dealers

    Greater Steering Precision

    Notably rigid mounting for the steering assembly enhances linear feel for greater steering precision, while reducing low- and high-speed vibration. The rack-and-pinion is tuned to provide a smooth, linear transition between generous power assist at low speeds and a firmer feel at higher speeds. Electronic – rather than hydraulic – power assist doesn’t draw mechanical power from the engine. This further increases ILX’s efficiency.

  • 2020 Acura ILX Braking System

    Braking System

    The four-wheel disc brakes are designed with several subtle enhancements to improve their performance over conventional cars of the same size, while Electronic Brake Distribution uses the anti-lock brake sensors to determine the proportion of brake force to be channeled to each wheel for increased performance and stability.


Forward-Thinking Design

The 2020 ILX sets the stage for premium performance well before you enter the driver’s seat. Its low, wide, athletic stance communicates the corner-hungry nature of the sport sedan. A focus on performance is furthered through 17-inch Glitter Silver Y-Spoke, noise-reducing wheels, while up front the bold Diamond Pentagon Grille flanked by chiseled Jewel Eye® LED headlights welcomes all with a face that says “Let’s go find some corners.” Escalate your driving experience with the available A-Spec Package with confidence that creates performance. It begins up front with a dark headlamp treatment and black chrome accents, as well as a matte graphite insert. Style is furthered along the sides with underbody spoilers and exclusive 18-inch Shark Gray 15-spoke wheels. And in the back, a piano-black diffuser and a gloss-black decklid spoiler add to the sporty design.

Prevent, Avoid, and Minimize Threats

The Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure of the 2020 ILX is designed to absorb and disperse frontal impact energy so less force is transferred to what really matters: the people inside. Crash compatibility is designed into the structure as well, so in the event of a frontal collision, the occupants of all vehicles involved are better protected. But Acura didn’t stop there. ILX’s Vehicle Stability Assist® (VSA®) system helps make every driver a better driver by using an array of sensors, along with ABS, to reduce the dangers of oversteer/understeer by continually monitoring vehicle speed, throttle position, individual wheel speeds, steering angle, lateral G-force, and yaw rate. Now, factor in a Multi-View Rear Camera and the AcuraWatch™ safety package as standard equipment on every trim level. Is it any wonder why the 2020 ILX earned a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)?

  • 2020 Acura ILX Adaptive Cruise Control

    Adaptive Cruise Control

    Conventional cruise control has always been welcome on long highway trips. But it’s of little use on a daily urban commute. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) changes that. You can set a desired speed while maintaining a set time interval between you and the car detected ahead — allowing you to enjoy the benefits of cruise control in light traffic conditions.

  • 2020 Acura ILX Collision Mitigation Braking System

    Collision Mitigation Braking System

    The Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) helps reduce the likelihood or severity of a frontal impact. Powered by a combination of radar transmitter and forward-facing camera, the system determines the distance and closing speed of detected objects that lie directly ahead.

  • 2020 Acura ILX Road Departure Mitigation System

    Road Departure Mitigation System

    In the event you unintentionally drift off the road, the Road Departure Mitigation System is there to assist. When the system detects the ILX is about to leave the road, it warns you with an MID warning message, an amber heads-up warning and a tightening of the seat belt.

  • 2020 Acura ILX Lane Keeping Assist System

    Lane Keeping Assist System

    Using a forward-facing camera mounted above the inside rearview mirror, the Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) works proactively to keep the ILX centered in a detected lane. If you drift away or steer out from the center of a detected lane without signaling, the Lane Departure Warning gives you an audio alert and message on the MID. If the LKAS system has been engaged, it will then gently tug the steering wheel and help guide the car back to the center of the lane.

  • 2020 Acura ILX Blind Spot Information System

    Blind Spot Information System

    The Blind Spot Information System is your second pair of eyes during lane changes. If the ILX detects a vehicle in the next lane’s alert zone while going over 20 MPH, an indicator appears on the side mirror. If you signal in the direction of that vehicle, the mirror indicator flashes and a warning beep sounds.

  • 2020 Acura ILX Rear Cross Traffic Monitor

    Rear Cross Traffic Monitor

    When in reverse, sensors in the car can detect approaching vehicles from either side. With the Multi-View Rear Camera in Normal or Wide mode, you’re alerted to approaching vehicles by a chime and amber arrows in the rear camera monitor.
