By reading this article, you’ll see why a lot of drivers think that the Acura ILX is the best luxury sedan for commuters.

2017 Acura ILX Power & Efficiency

The Acura ILX features a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that’s paired with an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission. This engine features direct-injection, which is a fuel delivery system that supplies your engine only with the fuel that it needs so it can cut down on unnecessary waste. Because of this system, the Acura ILX gets an EPA-estimated 25/35 city/highway MPG* while being able to reach 201 horsepower with 180 lb-ft of torque.

Acura ILX Interior Comfort & Technology

Whether you have a lengthy commute, or your office is right around the corner, you’ll want a vehicle that offers you a great deal of comfort. The Acura ILX features leatherette-trimmed seating, providing you with an 8-way adjustable seat, letting you maximize your comfort with your desired seating position. You can relax and get comfortable with the 38 inches of headroom and the 42.3 inches of legroom offered to you.

What might be the most fun part of your commute is the audio entertainment. Whether you’re a fan of morning zoo radio or NPR, you can easily listen to your favorite stations through the 6-speaker sound system. These speakers feature speed-sensitive volume control, which prevents the loud engine performance from interfering with your listening pleasure. You could also listen to your external devices through the auxiliary input or the USB port.

This sedan also features Bluetooth®, which lets you stay connected during your commute. This system also sends incoming text messages to the 5-inch screen through the SMS/MMS Text Message Reading system; you can choose one of six pre-set responses. 

Safety Features

The Acura ILX features 4-wheel anti-lock brakes with Vehicle Stability Assist™. This feature activates when the vehicle experiences wheel slip. It applies brake pressure to the effected wheels while diverting more torque to the wheels with the most traction.

If you’re looking to add a little ease and convenience to your daily commutes, you may want to consider getting the AcuraWatch Plus or Technology Plus packages. These packages include Adaptive Cruise Control, which lets you set your speed and distance from the vehicle ahead. The Collision Mitigation Braking System™ is also helpful because it uses front sensors to measure the distance from the vehicle ahead. It’ll notify you if it detects a possible collision, while providing enough brake pressure to give you time to come to a complete stop.
