All right, Mission Viejo, you can stop holding your breath now because the all-new 2016 Acura ILX is finally here, which means it's time for another Norm Reeves Acura vehicle review.

Along with drivers from Aliso Viejo to Lake Forest, we've been dying to check out the new ILX and see if its promise of power, intelligence, and elegance lives up to the Acura name. In short, they don't just live up to it-they completely redefined what it means to drive an Acura.


2016 Acura ILX Design

The look and feel of the new ILX is incredibly sleek and sophisticated. Unique design packages help drivers unlock the full style potential of the 2016 ILX, including Lux Suede seat inserts and red interior lighting accents.

The ILX's signature Jewel Eye LED headlights feature 10 LED lamps that work to mimic natural sunlight. The result is enhanced illumination and a reduction in fatigue when driving at night.

Acura ILX Performance Specs

The engine of the 2016 Acura ILX is a surprisingly powerful 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, which many drivers may find hard to believe considering the ILX's responsiveness.

The secret behind the ILX's performance is its Intelligent Variable Timing and Lift Control. Keeping the intake valves open for longer and deeper, the ILX can increase horsepower while direct gas injection into each cylinder improves fuel consumption and performance.

The ILX's handling also is impeccable. The Drive-by-Wire system increases throttle response and driving comfort, especially when working under difficult conditions. 

ILX Technology

If driving the 2016 ILX wasn't already fun enough, this Acura also features standard and premium entertainment equipment inside the cabin. The optional Acura/ELS Surround Premium Audio System provides touchscreen operation and 10 speakers for surround sound audio.

To help you get to where you're going, the new ILX has an optional navigation system that can be controlled by hand or using voice recognition. Add on AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic and drivers will be able to keep an eye on traffic conditions, helping to save time and avoid delays.


ILX Safety Features

The 2016 Acura ILX has improved safety features to help keep drivers in Mission Viejo, Lake Forest, and Aliso Viejo safe. Particularly the Road Departure Mitigation System and the Lane Keeping Assist are especially notable. Both of these technologies help to make sure you stay within the lane while driving, but they accomplish it in different ways.  

The Lane Keeping Assist System uses a sophisticated camera to track painted lane lines and other road markings to determine the lanes, while the Road Departure Mitigation System can identify objects such as trees or parked cars to designate the driving lane. This way, whether driving on a busy highway or a small one-way street, the ILX can help keep drivers safely in the correct lane.
