Ignore the automotive writers and just drive one yourself

2014 Acura ILX 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5A)
I own the 2014 ILX base 2.0L 5-sp auto. First off, the 150 hp engine is just fine, thanks. I can cruise at 80 mph on the interstate all day long. I've had no issues running at very high altitude climbing fairly steep grades, and getting up to speed is quick at about 8 sec 0-60 -- once the engine is broken in. It's also economical. I'm averaging 30 mpg with ~8K miles of mixed driving. The differences between the 2014 and 2013 are not minor. The 2014 now comes standard with heated leather seats (driver's is powered), rear-backup camera, 17" alloys, and additional sound deadening, including active noise reduction. I'm 6'1" and I fit in the car just fine. Go test drive one yourself.
Excellent stereo; great outward vision (unlike too many new cars that put you down in a hole, peering out over a high belt line through tiny slits for windows); economical to drive, comfortable.
