Acura ILX Compact Sedan

Acura has unveiled a simplistic compact sedan at the 2012 North American International Auto Show held in Detroit. This sedan was one of the brand's newest models and this is referred to as the "ILX" luxury compact sedan. Just like the other Acura vehicles that were unveiled on the event, the ILX obviously looks good and its external appearance speaks of Acura's expertise in producing luxury vehicles. Although the ILX is dominated by modest features, these were not able to conceal the car's prestigious and capable aura.

The Acura ILX compact sedan is expected to be launched in North America this spring and the model is almost production ready. Acura is currently on the process of checking and ensuring that the vehicle will provide a smoother and impressive performance as soon as it hit the dealerships.  The ILX is based on the platform used by the latest version of the Honda Civic sedan. Its body as well as the exterior layout was designed as a compact sedan. In addition to this, Acura has implemented a number of design twists into the vehicle to make it look more appealing to the buying public. Due to this, most car experts are assuming that the ILX will eventually become popular for its pronounced wings on the rear, unique body matched with a raked greenhouse, and front grille that resembles the single-tooth design.

According to Acura, the engines that they would be using on the ILX were also sourced from the Honda Civic. This includes the 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder that would serve as the model's entry-level engine, a high-performance 2.4-liter 4-cylinder mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, and a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine attached to an electric hybrid powertrain. The 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine backed by an electric motor and a hybrid powertrain will serve as Acura's first offering of a hybrid car model.

Aside from its attractive design and impressive engine line-up, the Acura ILX will also be offering an upscale interior that suits its image as a luxury compact sedan. In addition to this, the ILX will be available with a number of exciting features such as the smart entry keyless access system as well as the push-button start. A number of equipments such as the internet radio interface and the function SMS text message function from Pandora are also found in this model. Given these features, the Acura ILX will have a starting price that is below $30,000.
