2017 Acura ILX

Pros: Surprisingly hospitable rear seat; competitive pricing; good range of available luxury and safety features; improved quietness; nice ride/handling balance

Cons: Only one powertrain available; cabin ambiance and materials a bit drab for the class; engine occasionally feels coarse to some testers

CG Says: After a major freshening last year, the 2017 Acura ILX is unchanged. The ILX is positioned between regular compact cars and the majority of premium compacts. The numerous improvements for 2016 made ILX a more credible contender in its segment. This junior Acura still doesn’t quite match the premium ambiance of some of its class rivals, but competitive pricing and a long list of desirable available features make it a worthwhile choice.
