Keyless access, push button start, and Pandora radio are also offered in addition to the tech and premium packages.
The chassis of the ILX uses a fully-independent MacPherson strut setup in front with a multilink rear and Acura’s Amplitude Reactive Dampers, which -- according to Acura -- offer more comfort and better handling. An electric power steering system is standard.
Acura builds the ILX at its Greensburg, Ind. plant.
