Why you're all of a sudden not the last one to be picked for the kick-ball team:
With the 2016 Acura ILX in your driveway, you'll see a marked increase in your popularity quotient.
What the draw is:
The impressive 201-hp, 2.4 liter, i-VTEC engine in the ILX gives it one of the best power-to-weight ratios in its class, making you more nimble and quick on the road. New to the ILX is a world's first eight-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission with torque converter. The eight-speed DCT is always a step ahead, delivering rapid-yet-smooth transitions. Lightening-quick responses pair perfectly with amplitude reactive dampers that give you the best of whatever the situation demands. They operate in two unique performance zones, offering both a composed, comfortable ride and precise handling.
Where you can take one for a test drive:
Valencia Acura, of course. 255-3000
