Acura announces availabilty of the 2015 ILX
 Date: June 17, 2014 09:50
 Submitted by:  JeffX
 Source: Acura Press Release
 Credibility Rating: Not Specified


The ILX returns for the 2015 model year with pretty much everything carrying over. About the only thing that has changed is a paint color swap - Modern Steel Metallic replaces Polished Steel Metallic. Pricing remains unchanged. 2016 should bring a mid-cycle model change for the ILX. We are expecting Acura to address the ILX's powertrain, likely introducing Earth Dreams technology to the equation. Competition in this arena is fierce nowadays and the ILX has not been a strong seller for Acura. It's not clear that even a significant MMC would be enough to reverse the ILX's fortunes.

2015 ILX Offers Two Powertrain Options plus Premium Features on Acura’s Gateway Luxury Sports Sedan

The feature-packed ILX offerings, including an exhilarating 2.4-liter, 6-speed manual pairing and a fuel-efficient 2.0-liter automatic, provide the Acura experience to entry luxury customers

06/17/2014 - TORRANCE, Calif.
Going on sale June 18, 2014 the 2015 Acura ILX lineup provides new luxury buyers with numerous ways to join the Acura family with a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP1) starting at $27,050. The ILX is available in four grade levels offering different blends of performance and premium features plus Acura refinement and quality in a sleek, sporty and luxurious package.

The ILX is available with two powertrain choices:
  • ILX 2.0-liter i-VTEC®, five-speed automatic transmission (5AT), 35 MPG rating (highway)2, available in standard trim, Technology Package or Premium Package
  • ILX 2.4-liter i-VTEC®, six-speed manual transmission (6MT), 31 MPG rating (highway)2, with Premium Package


With multiple new features and upgrades applied last year to the 2014 model, the 2015 ILX continues to offer enhanced styling, comfort, and driving enjoyment along with excellent value on a luxury scale. Standard features include 17-inch alloy wheels, projector beam headlights, leather seating surfaces with heated front seats and 8-way power driver's seat, a Keyless Access System with smart entry and push button start, a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera and Active Noise Cancellation (ANC). The 2.0-liter direct injected engine produces 150 horsepower3 and is paired with a Sequential SportShift five-speed automatic transmission. For a more dynamic driving experience, a 2.4-liter engine that pumps out 201 horsepower4 is mated to a close-ratio, six-speed manual transmission. The identically outfitted 2014 Acura ILX earned the Intellichoice 2014 "Best Overall Value of the Year" award in the Premium Compact Passenger Car category, with the lowest total ownership cost in its class.

The ILX 2.4-liter and 2.0-liter models with the Premium Package come equipped with a premium sound system including XM® Radio, USB port and AUX jack connectivity, Bluetooth® Audio, Pandora® interface, SMS text messaging feature, speed-sensitive volume control, 7-speakers with subwoofer and 360-watt amplifier. The ILX 2.0-liter model with the Technology Package includes the ELS Surround® audio system with Note function music reminder, AcuraLink® Satellite Communication System, Acura Navigation System with Voice Recognition™, AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic with Traffic Rerouting™, AcuraLink Real-Time Weather™ with radar image maps and HomeLink®.

For the 2015 model year Modern Steel Metallic replaces the Polished Metal Metallic exterior color, all other color options carryover from the 2014 model year. View, build and price a 2015 Acura ILX at acura.com/ModelLanding.aspx?model=ILX.
