  • 2019 Acura ILX

    Acura's ILX enters the 2019 model year with a fresh set of clothes, representing the second time the compact luxury sport sedan has been updated since its 2013 debut. The latest tweaks inject the ILX with some much-needed aggression and adds the corporate “diamond pentagon” grille that we first saw on the Acura Precision concept unveiled in 2016 and already featured on most of the brand's lineup. There's also the availability of an A-Spec appearance package that gives the ILX its sportiest look yet. The exterior of the ILX A-Spec is distinguished by dark chrome accents and 18-inch...

    If you own a newer Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch running iOS 6, you probably already know how helpful Siri can be. Though far from flawless, Siri is like a virtual assistant standing by to answer (almost) any question. Apple has been developing a Siri feature called Eyes Free that takes the service to the next level behind the wheel of a car. With Eyes Free, you can use you vehicle’s voice control system to have Siri make calls, play selected music, read or compose texts, dictate directions and even remind you of upcoming appointments. To avoid distraction, Siri Eyes Free even keeps...

    Acura Shows Its 'Street Build' ILX At SEMA

    Acura bills its gateway-to-the-brand ILX sedan as the ideal blend of sport and luxury, but our experience with the car tells us it’s lacking in the sport department. Even with the 201-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine (the largest available), the car lacks the kind of thrust we...

  • 2013 Acura ILX

    Hey, that's one fancy Civic there! Calling the 2013 Acura ILX a gussied-up Civic is, in many ways, completely fair, but in truth, Acura has come up with a mix of near-luxury style and feel crossed with a sporty-ish sensibility that is almost completely missing from the market at the moment, and that may be where it finds its success. In the late-1980s through the mid-1990, small, sporty mostly-luxury sedans were pretty common items--from the BMW 3-Series (particularly in the E30 generation) to the Volvo S40 to even Acura's own Legend and Vigor, and of course the Integra and RSX. While the...
