Very fast and performance is great!!

2018 Acura ILX

My vehicle is a reliable vehicle. I use it for all my daily task. Such as work, all my shopping, vacation trips. It has been very good on gas and has never given me any problems. All my friends and coworkers love my vehicle. They want to know where I got my vehicle from. Because they are very interested in getting the same one. They really like the design and the color of my car. I get lots of compliments from my car everywhere I go. I am very proud of my vehicle and I am so glad that I purchased this one. And when I am done with this one. I will get the same one again. It is very comfortable to drive. Very smooth. It feels like your riding on air. I have GPS and Sirius radio. This is all included with my package. I would highly recommend this car to car buyers. The performance is great. The best car I have ever owned.

The Acura I Recommend For You

2018 Acura ILX w/Premium Pkg

My Acura ILX overall is a very good option to go with, since Acura is owned and made by Honda, reliability is 10/10. Driving the car is very smooth, put holes are a problem where I live and the suspension does a good job keeping me from feeling them severely, the interior looks great and is comfortable, all with excellent gas mileage! Only thing I would add is some more power but I understand they go for luxury instead. An excellent feature that has become a must, is the keyless entry and push to start, I can be at ease with my key in pocket knowing the car will unlock automatically and start with a push of a button, makes life easy! Overall I'd recommend the car to anyone that's looking for a good daily driver that's has a great look.

Blind spot system that lets you know if you are about to get it hit.

2018 Acura ILX

The ilx is little more than a fancier Honda Civic, but updated styling for 2019 at least has its exterior looking sporty and fresh. The sole powertrain is a 201-hp 2. 4-liter four-cylinder with front-wheel drive mated to a smooth dual-clutch eight-speed automatic transmission. Apple carplay and android auto are newly optional, and active-safety features are now standard, but the interior still looks and feels dated. An a-spec package adds sharper visuals but does not back those up with any mechanical changes.
