Editor's Overview

Acura stumbled out of the gate with the Civic-based ILX, but a thorough do-over last year made this little sedan worth another look. We like the new, more powerful engine, and the refreshed styling, stiffer chassis, and tech upgrades make it worth a close look for shoppers searching for a premium brand, but without a ton of money to spend.

Sunroof, heated seats, smooth ride, decent trunk space.

The Acura ilx is absolutely wonderful. It is the perfect size for me being the only driver. With having the base package, it comes with a sunroof and heated seats standard which is what I love for the winter or summer months. The car runs great the only problem is I didn't get a spare tire and already had a flat that required a new tire completely.

- Katherine R

Mega options standard and the look is sportier than most competition.

I wanted a compact car. . . The ilx has a lot of great standard features and is reliable. The service department is fabulous and I did not want to give them up. The transmission is awkward shifting and the ride is a bit rocky. I miss the sunglasses holder from my previous tsx but the trunk is wider which works well for bigger items.

- Caroline S

Smooth riding in an Acura ilx.

I love the way my vehicle drives, it is such a smooth ride. As of right now, I do not have any problems with it. One of my favorite features is the backup camera and the ability to speak through my car, I have never owned a car with those features, it really helps to keep you from being distracted and causing accidents.
