Editor's Overview

The 2019 Acura ILX is the entry-level car from Honda’s luxury division. As Acura’s smallest and most affordable sedan, it competes with rivals like the Audi A3 and the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class. Making it even more tempting are updates to its design, technology and safety features, and a $2,200 price drop.

It is durable and reliable.

It can be too compact at times. I desire more space. My AC tends to go out. I desire a bigger truck like vehicle.

- Kayla C

it is very economical. I also like the throttle response a lot. It gives me a piece of mind how safe the car is too.

The car is fantastic
