On May 22, the 2013 Acura ILX will hit North American dealerships and pick up where the iconic RSX and Integra left off. More than just a rebadged Civic, the next line of premium compacts from Honda will plenty of innovative features as well as a first for the Acura brand. With three powertrain options and four doors, the ILX will not only offer a trim for a variety of buyers, it will open the door once again for thrifty spenders to get behind the wheel of impeccable, luxury filled Honda charm. Being as it will be the gateway Acura, official pricing has been revealed to prove that the ILX is more of a car for the people with a base MSRP of $25,900.
“At the leading edge of a new, sporty compact segment, the ILX delivers style, value, performance and connectivity to younger buyers looking to move into the luxury market,” said Jeff Conrad, vice president of Acura sales. For the base price, the ILX comes with a 150 horsepower, 2.0 liter inline four cylinder and puts its power down to the front wheels via a five speed automatic. In order to make the RSX Type S and Integra Type R proud, the Civic Si donates its 2.4 liter, 201 horsepower engine and close ratio six speed manual to create the ILX Premium for $29,200. If mpgs are more important to you than near 9,000 rpm redlines and lightning quick shifts, $28,900 can be shelled out for the first Acura production hybrid ever. For this trim, the Civic once again offers up one of its drivetrains: the 1.5 liter straight four with Honda’s Integrated Motor Assist and lithium-ion battery. With this combo, 39 mpg can be had in the city while 38 mpg can be seen on the freeway.
The base cars won’t be without a wealth of standard features. Included in the starting price are items such as power moonroof, bluetooth device pairing, a new Keyless Access System and alloy wheels. Two packages will be available – the Technology and Premium – and both can be fitted to a select powertrain. For instance, the 2.0 liter can be had with either the $3,300 Premium package or $2,200 Technology package while the 2.4 only gets the Premium and the Hybrid only gets the chance to have the Tech package added. Items such as heated leather seats, satellite radio, HID headlamps, 17 inch wheels and a multi-view camera come on the Premium package while AcuraLink and navigation come with the Technology.
