2019 Acura ILX in Edmonton
West Side Acura presents the 2019 Acura ILX Edmonton, Canada, and the world have been waiting for. With a redesigned exterior for 2019, more standard technology features, and thrilling performance, the ILX proves that a small-sized luxury sedan need not be entry-level. Every ounce of this car is infused with Acura's Precision Crafted Performance philosophy. Yet with a base price of only $29,990, it dramatically undercuts its rivals from Germany and elsewhere.
For 2019, the ILX's exterior received a thorough redesign that incorporates Acura's newest cutting-edge design language. From the black chrome "diamond pentagon" grille in the front--Acura's new signature grille--to the jewel-eye LED headlights, to the ILX's sleek, sculpted sides, the new design delivers looks to match performance. A low, wide stance clearly indicates that this is a car made for carving up the corners. Other aggressive design elements include available side skirts, a deck lid spoiler, LED fog lights, and standard 18-inch alloy wheels. And the beauty isn't only skin-deep; the ILX's interior delivers a dynamic experience for drivers and passengers with sport seats that cradle you in luxury while still letting you feel the road.
Performance is the ILX's mission statement. Acura's Precision Crafted Performance philosophy infuses the driving experience from the moment its 201 horsepower inline-four-cylinder i-VTEC engine purrs to life. With a terrific power-to-weight ratio, this motor this motor combines with sport-tuned steering and a nimble suspension to deliver an instinctive driving response. An eight-speed dual-clutch transmission with torque converter, an industry first, provides fast and smooth shifts. Together the elements of this powertrain turn highway commutes and twisty mountain roads into a thrilling and visceral experience.
If you like your horsepower delivered with a dose of attitude, step up to the ILX's A-SPEC edition. In addition to distinctive exterior enhancements such as Shark Gray 15-spoke alloy wheels, the A-SPEC provides driver-centred upgrades. Drilled stainless steel sport pedals communicate the road feel, while sport seats trimmed in Ultrasuede hold you in place with race-day certainty. A darkened headliner accentuates the A-SPEC's red-illuminated instrument panel, adding an extra spark of visual excitement when the sun goes down.
Technology has been Acura's calling card from Day One, and for 2019 the ILX raises its high-tech game. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now standard, connecting your ILX to your digital world as never before. You can make hands-free calls, bring up your music playlists, and access your favourite apps. The optional AcuraLink system also connects you to a world of media and information, including trip planning services and a Concierge that can assist with everything from reservations to choosing the best route. An optional ELS Studio Premium Audio System turns the ILX's cabin into a concert stage for your playlists. And finally, the AcuraWatch network of safety sensors augments the driver's eyes and ears, offering a Forward Collision Warning feature, a Collision Mitigation Braking System, Lane Departure Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control, and an optional Blind Spot Information System.
