Good bang for the buck

Great entry level luxury sedan, from the sporty look and feel to the excellent handling. We opted for all the upgrades, A-spec, premium and technology packages. Nice jump off the line, but not as robust once going 60 or more, but that is a tradeoff. The voice navigation system is well done, allowing for hands free lookup and routing to restaurants, shopping and other points of interest. Lots of upscale features for safety and comfort, including lane assist, collision warning with auto braking, a myriad of air bags, auto sensing rear view mirror and 2 driver seat memory positions. If you are looking for a lot of luxury features, but want to stay under the 35k price tag, this car is a solid choice. We love it.

Excellent car, particularly for the price!

An excellent car - top notch performance and looks. Even with the fully upgraded packages, still cheaper than other entry level luxury car base models with no upgrades (Lexus, Mercedes, BMW, Audi). Great entry level luxury car for the price. Infotainment system is outdated and could look better - my one con.

BANG FOR YOUR BUCK

This car comes with a lot of features that other cars don’t come close to having in this price range. If your looking for a small, nice, luxury commuter this is the right car for you. Dealer also took a big loss selling me this one, sales were very slow. The DCT transmission for this car is just phenomenal I truly am lost for words about the driving experience. It is very impressive for what it’s set out to be. Acura is if not more as reliable as Lexus and Toyota, but Acura’s are made for performance and precision. Toyotas are slow compared to this thing. I would definitely take a look at this car if you’re in the market.

I bought the Aspec for $33,000 it was worth every penny. I really don’t understand why some are saying it’s an ok car? It has good power,great safety features,great looks and awesome reliability! Any other in its class is $10,000 to $15000 more!

Piece of junk

The 2021 ILX absorbs bumps like a Trabant. Worst suspension of any modern vehicle I have driven or ridden in. Extremely inconsistent throttle response. Sometimes it is perfectly linear and responsive. Other times, it struggles altogether to maintain a consistent speed. Nobody can figure out why. Various clunks/noises accompany acceleration and breaking. These aspects would make the Trabants envious. Cheap is expensive. Never forget!
