Base 4dr Sedan
2020 Acura ILX

2020 ILX Photos
Positioned somewhere between mainstream and luxury, the 2020 Acura ILX premium compact sedan looks impressive enough-and it's priced right, too.

Beneath its smooth skin lies the running gear of the last-generation Honda Civic. Acura has kept the ILX fresh with a mild makeover in 2018. Little has changed for the 2020 model year. All told, the 2020 Acura ILX isn't dramatically different from the introductory model, which debuted for 2013.

Acura's sweet-running 2.4-liter inline-4 engine produces 201 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque, driving an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The ILX has front-wheel drive.

Only one trim level is offered, but the 2020 ILX can be equipped with either a Premium or Technology option packages. Acura also offers an A-Spec option group, which incorporates a variety of sporty appearance details, inside and out. A-Spec sedans roll on larger (18-inch) wheels, but the collection of sporty elements has no discernible impact on handling or performance. The A-Spec group is available only when coupled with the Premium or Technology package.

Every ILX contains a bountiful suite of active-safety and driver-assistance technology. Standard features include automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and active lane control. All but the base model also have blind-spot monitors.

Crash-test scores from both federal government and independent testers have been good, but short of perfect. The NHTSA gave Acura's ILX a five-star crash-test rating overall, and for side-impact. Only a four-star score was achieved for frontal collision, as well as rollover resistance (a calculated figure).

The IIHS rated the ILX 'Good'? in every instrumented test, but LED headlights were deemed 'Poor.'? That score kept the ILX from earning a Top Safety Pick designation. Standard automatic emergency braking system earned the ILX a 'Superior'? score for frontal crash prevention (vehicle-to-vehicle)..
