Compact with charisma

2017 ILX

Most luxury automakers want you to think it’s nearly impossible to find a high-end vehicle for a low-end price, but the 2017 Acura ILX does just that. Redefining the segment, even a base model ILX offers the performance and features that sneak into the mid-size category. Successfully blending 201 horsepower with a combined 29 mpg city/highway,** maybe it’s the ILX’s noise cancelling technology that is quietly making this luxury car one of the best kept secrets in Colorado.



Supercar DNA

Don’t let the bold styling of 2017 Acura ILX fool you. It’s just as much fun to drive as it is to look at. Declared a “featherweight contender” by Acura, the ILX is equipped with a 2.4-liter, inline-four engine, giving it one of the best power-to-weight ratios in its segment.^ Smooth shifting and instant acceleration come courtesy of the industry’s first and only 8-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission. For a more dynamic driving experience, switch gears using race-inspired paddle shifters, standard on all ILX trim levels.

  • 8 Speed Dual Clutch Transmission

    8-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission

    Full potential is realized thanks to the world’s first and only 8-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission (DCT). Initially developed for race cars, this 8-Speed DCT changes gears via clutches, similar to a manual transmission which allows for faster, smoother, and more efficient gear shifting.

  • Vehicle Stability Assist

    Vehicle Stability Assist

    In conjunction with ABS, the Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) system uses a multitude of sensors positioned throughout the ILX to reduce the risk of under and over steering during wet conditions. If oversteer or understeer is detected, the VSA system will apply brakes to each wheel as needed to help regain traction and stabilize the vehicle.

  • Engine Powertrain

    2.4L 4-Cylinder Engine

    The ILX is changing what it means to be a car in the compact sport sedan category. Featuring a 2.4-liter, i-VTEC engine, the ILX refuses to trade efficiency for power, producing 201 hp while still achieving an impressive 25 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway.**

  • Struts

    Advanced Suspension

    Many factors contribute to a smooth, comfortable ride. The ILX employs 4-wheel Independent MacPherson struts in the front and a multi-link arrangement in the back for precise handling. Amplitude reactive dampers are included for good measure.

  • Steering System

    Steering System

    The rack-and-pinion of the ILX has been fine-tuned to create a linear transition between higher and lower speeds, while the steering assembly sports a rigid mount in order to reduce vibration. Further evolving, the ILX has opted for a more efficient electronic power assist, as opposed to hydraulic which relies on mechanical power from the engine.

  • Performance Pedals

    Performance Pedals

    Available with the 2017 ILX A-Spec Package, these race-inspired aluminum pedals nurture performance with a shape and texture that keep your foot centered on the pedal for maximum response time. Not only that, but they take the term “sport sedan” to a whole new level.


Statement maker

The 2017 Acura ILX carries a distinctive look without resorting to the styling gimmicks that beset some of its competitors. An athletic frame paired with subtle contours, the ILX is refined without too much effort. [Add A-Spec] The statement is made at the front, as the grille treatment emerges from the Acura badge like spread wings, flanked on either side by Acura’s signature Jewel Eye LED headlights. Exterior elements such as a rearview camera and keyless access system truly compliment the ILX’s sophisticated design, technology that is standard on all trim levels.

  • Keyless Entry

    Keyless Access System

    Never has a driver held this many vehicle functions in the palm of their hand. Without taking the key fob out of your pocket, you may turn on/off the engine and auxiliary controls, lower the windows and open the moonroof, unlatch the trunk, and utilize smart entry–unlocking the door only after you touch the handle.

  • Jewel Eye LED headlights

    Jewel Eye LED Headlights

    The cornerstone to every Acura vehicle is the Jewel Eye LED headlights. Both refined and functional, this signature light profile is unlike any other luxury car on the market. The diamond-like LEDs not only use less energy than traditional headlights, but they also generate a brighter beam for enhanced safety.

  • Multi-View Rear Camera

    Multi-View Rear Camera

    All 2017 Acura ILX models are standard equipped with a multi-view rear camera. Monitor your surroundings on a 5-inch crystal clear display, complete with yellow guidelines for increased accuracy. Choose from three dynamic angles, including a regular view for backing up, a top-down view for parallel parking, and a wide angle view to check for oncoming vehicles and pedestrians behind you.


Sophisticated surroundings

Who ever said beauty is only skin deep couldn’t have been referring to the 2017 Acura ILX. Attention to detail is at its highest with quality materials and state-of-the-art technology flowing throughout the cabin. From the ODMD touchscreen and ELS Studio Premium Audio System to the power moonroof and heated front seats, luxury is the name of the game inside the ILX. One of the most quiet rides in its class, the ILX’s standard active sound control and noise-reducing wheels keep the outside world where it belongs: outside of the cabin.

  • Active Sound Control

    Active Sound Control

    Perhaps one of the most notable features inside the ILX cabin is active sound control. This technology cancels engine and wind noise by producing a reverse sound through the car’s audio system. As RPMs increase, active sound control jumps into action to create a constant state of quiet.

  • Automatic Climate Control

    Automatic Climate Control

    The driver and front passenger will both, undoubtedly appreciate the GPS-linked automatic climate control, which utilizes a solar sensor to detect the sun’s position and intensity, automatically adjusting controls to the perfect temperature.

  • ELS Studio Premium Audio

    ELS Studio Premium Audio System

    Acura enlisted the help of Grammy Award-winning recording engineer and producer Elliot Scheiner when designing the ELS Studio Premium Audio System. Included with the 2017 ILX Technology Plus Package, this 10-speaker audio system replicates studio quality sound using six isolated channels of audio source material from the center, left front, right front, left rear, right rear, and subwoofer.

  • Steering Wheel Mounted Controls

    Steering Wheel-Mounted Controls

    Distracted driving is one of the most serious problems on our roads today, but thanks to steering wheel-mounted controls, you can keep your hands on the wheel where they belong. With the press of a button, drivers have the ability to receive/place phone calls, manage the cruise control, adjust audio volume, and change songs or stations.

  • On Demand Multi-Use Display

    On Demand Multi-Use Display (ODMD)

    Gone are the days of an overcrowded dashboard that is littered with unnecessary knobs, buttons, and levers. Acura has centralized all audio and climate controls into a 7-inch, full-color touchscreen known as the On Demand Multi-Use Display (ODMD). Create shortcuts to manage your music, smartphone functionality, and security settings.

  • Siri Eyes Free

    Siri Eyes Free

    Apple iPhone users are sure to love the Siri Eyes Free feature on the 2017 ILX, which allows drivers to access their smartphone without ever having to take their hands off the steering wheel. Perform tasks such as sending and receiving text messages, scheduling calendar appointments, checking the weather, and finding out sports scores and stock quotes–all via Siri voice commands.


Cool, calm, & collected

Imagine driving a car that automatically detects vehicles in your blind spot or alerts you if you’ve drifted outside of your lane? Although it may sound like technology from the future, we like to call it AcuraWatch, available on the 2017 ILX. In addition to driver assistive technology, the ILX is structurally sound from the ground up thanks to Acura’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body construction and Collision Mitigation Braking System. The world moves fast, and you need a car that will stay the course. Protect and prevent with the 2017 Acura ILX.

  • Active Seat Belts

    Active Seat Belts

    Your seat belt is the easiest and most effective way to protect yourself in the event of an accident. No matter where you find yourself seated within the ILX, all five seating positions are equipped with 3-point safety belts and head restraints. For added protection, the front seats feature a load-limiting tensioner system that secure occupants upon milliseconds of a significant impact.

  • Adaptive Cruise Control

    Adaptive Cruise Control

    Standard cruise control is great while driving on the open road, but during light to heavy traffic, having to make constant adjustments can be cumbersome and distracting. With Acura’s Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), not only can you set your desired speed, but you can also set the distance between your ILX and the detected vehicle in front of you.

  • Collision Mitigation Braking

    Collision Mitigation Braking System

    One of Acura’s most intuitive accident prevention features is the Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) which employs a radar transmitter and forward-facing camera to detect obstacles ahead of you. If/when a potential accident is identified, the CMBS will beep and flash a message to alert you. If no action is taken, CMBS will apply light braking.

  • ACE Body Structure

    ACE Body Structure

    Intelligent engineering is front and center when it comes to Acura’s ACE body structure. Designed to increase occupant protection during a front-end collision, ACE distributes the impact of a crash more evenly throughout the vehicle. The 2017 ILX features a new generation of ACE that utilizes extra braces on the front corners to further absorb and distribute crash energy in the event of a collision that occurs on only one side of the front end.

  • Lane Keeping Assist

    Lane Keeping Assist System

    Not designed to completely steer the vehicle; rather, the Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) works proactively to prevent any unintended lane changes. With the help of a forward-facing camera mounted on the rearview mirror of the ILX, the LKAS will provide audible and visual notifications if you begin changing lanes without a turn signal. If no action is taken, the system will gradually guide the steering wheel back into place.

  • Blind Spot Information

    Blind Spot Information System

    Acura’s Blind spot information (BSI) System is an unobtrusive piece of technology that notifies you when the “alert zone” or blind spot is occupied. If you switch on the turn signal in the direction of a detected vehicle, an indicator will flash on the corresponding side mirror and a beep will sound.
