ILX is a critical gateway to the Acura brand, capturing the most first-time, millennial and multicultural buyers of any model in the Acura lineup.

Just a year ago, Acura completed a design transformation of its lineup - introducing a significantly updated ILX with sportier styling, standard AcuraWatch(TM) technology as well as updated cabin tech, including available Apple CarPlay(R) and Android Auto(TM) integration.In the first eight months of 2019, ILX has picked up more than nine points of retail segment share1 and captures the largest percentage of sales from under-35 buyers of any model in the premium compact sedan segment.
Additionally, for the past two years, ILX has earned the top spot in Kelly Blue Book's 5-Year Cost to Own rankings among entry-luxury cars, indicative of the Acura brand's strong reputation for high quality and strong value retention.
