2016 Acura ILX First Impressions

The 2016 Acura ILX is a mid-cycle refresh of the brand’s entry level small sedan. Visually it’s a small upgrade, with a new grille, new LED headlights and taillights and a new trim with a body kit. Under the skin the Acura ILX is a whole new story with a brand new engine and a funky new gearbox that combines the smooth operation of a torque converter from a conventional automatic with the sporty feel of a dual-clutch automated manual.
