2020 Acura ILX Review
Looking for a small luxury car that you can whip around Jenkintown, Abington, and Lower Southampton Township in? Check out the 2020 Acura ILX, a luxury car that combines class with convenience and capability, inside this review by our team at Sussman Acura. Let’s get started by taking a look under the hood to see what makes this model move!
Pep, Efficiency, & Excitement
Leading the way in the 2020 Acura ILX is a 2.4L aluminum-alloy 4-cylinder engine that pairs with an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Together, this duo works hard to maximize fuel economy, so you can get everywhere you need to go efficiently. At peak performance, this duo achieves an impressive EPA-estimated 24 city/34 highway MPG.1
This vehicle is able to achieve such incredible fuel economy thanks to its intelligent-Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (i-VTEC®) technology. By varying the valve timing, it makes precise gear shifts, reduces emissions, and maximizes efficiency.
Executive-Level Interior Design
As a luxury vehicle, the 2020 Acura ILX comes with the best of the best interior furnishings. You’ll get standard sports seats with leatherette trimming that can be swapped out for high-end perforated Milano leather trimming. Additionally, you can opt for heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and knob, and power lumbar support for both front passengers.
You’ll also get a standard Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control system with humidity control and air filtration. Take convenience to the next level by combining the capabilities of this system with available GPS-Linked Climate Control. This feature comes with an exterior solar sensor that measures the intensity of the sun and automatically adjusts the internal temperature of the vehicle to keep everyone comfortable.
Advanced Technology Features
The 2020 Acura ILX offers a comprehensive lineup of technology features that will make you feel more confident in all types of driving conditions. For starters, you’ll get a variety of AcuraWatch™ driver-assistive technologies including:
- Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)2
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)3
- Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)4
- Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) System
These features are designed to help you prevent accidents before they happen, so you and your passengers can enjoy the ride. Each one works with a system of exterior sensors and cameras to monitor your surroundings at all times. Enhance your exterior senses even more with a Multi-View Rear Camera, which assists in backing up, parallel parking, and more.
The Acura ILX doesn’t stop there, though. You’ll also get an Acura Navigation System that comes with an 8-inch color display. Use this system to do all kinds of things like get directions using the built-in Voice Recognition System, get real-time traffic updates from AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic™, and access all your smartphone apps thanks to Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration.

ACC should not be used in heavy traffic, poor weather or on winding roads. ACC only includes a limited braking function. Driver remains responsible for slowing or stopping the vehicle to avoid a collision.

FCW does not apply braking, and CMBS only is designed to mitigate crash forces. Depending on the circumstances, CMBS may not go through all the alert stages before initiating the last stage of collision mitigation. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.
4 LKAS only assists driver in maintaining proper lane position when lane markings are identified without a turn signal in use and can only apply mild steering torque to assist. LKAS may not detect all lane markings; accuracy will vary based on weather, speed and road condition. System operation affected by extreme interior heat. Driver remains responsible for safely operating vehicle and avoiding collisions.
