Queens Acura ILX | Long Island City Luxury Dealer
The Queens Acura ILX is Acura’s most affordable luxury sedan, first manufactured in 2013. Based on the Honda Civic but with enough upgrades to make it all Acura, it starts with polished exterior style and moves into the elegant upgraded interior. This results in an entry-level luxury car that is both the most compact and most fuel-efficient option in the Acura brand. For drivers searching for a budget friendly yet sophisticated small sedan, the ILX may be a great choice. It is an agile vehicle which will easily transport you around town in style.
The New York Acura ILX is offers both a gas-only model and a hybrid. A 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine which generates 150 horsepower and 140 pound-feet of torque energizes the gas model; while the five-speed automatic transmission helps the wheels turn. The performance-driven ILX 2.4 utilizes a 2.4-liter four-cylinder capable of 201 horsepower and 170 lb-ft, paired with a close-ratio six-speed manual. The Acura ILX Hybrid model utilizes the team of a 1.5-liter four-cylinder, electric motor and continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) to get you on the road. Looking to the Hybrid’s numbers, you can expect 111 horsepower, 127 lb-ft, and the combined EPA rated mileage in the high 30s will keep you driving more and filling up less.
When considering an ILX – either gas or hybrid – you can expect standard keyless ignition and entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, a sunroof, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity and a six-speaker audio system with Pandora Internet radio control. Features such as xenon headlights and a rearview camera can be found on the Premium trim, but are not available on the Hybrid. Moving up the line, optional niceties include a voice-controlled navigation system, digital music storage and a 10-speaker surround-sound audio system. Feature availability across trim levels may change between hybrid and gas-only models. New for 2014 were standard17-inch wheels, leather upholstery, a power driver seat and heated front seats, but only on the gas models.
Overall, the ILX is a great entry level Acura which represents its family name well. Contact our Long Island City used luxury dealer today for more information. You can also get started online by checking out our NY car financing options.
