The 2014 Acura ILX Sedan is a compact sedan offered in 3 trims, starting off at a base MSRP of $26,900. For that price, it mainly competes with the Honda Civic, the Buick Verano, and the Toyota Corolla. Between 3 trims, the ILX offers 2 powertrains. The base engine is a 2.0L inline 4 capable of making 150 horsepower and 140 lb-ft of torque. If more power is required, there is also a 201 horsepower-making a 2.4L inline 4 motor. While the base engine comes equipped with a 5-speed automatic transmission, the more powerful engine is only offered with a 6-speed manual. The ILX reaches 60 MPH from zero in 8.3 seconds on its base engine, which gets pumped up to 7 seconds with the bigger engine. Depending on the powertrain, the ILX can manage a combined fuel economy between 28 and 25 MPG. While we’re on the topic of choices, the 5 striking colors the ILX comes in really pull you towards itself.
