2016 Acura ILX  Review

2016 Acura ILX has been released for quite a bit of time but the production model will come on the market by the mid of 2015. However, take into account that the base model doesn’t have too many changes when it comes to exterior design. This model is clearly improved over last year’s model, but producer is still faced with the underlying problem that there’s not enough space between its mass-market products and those sold by its luxury brand. It does have the jewel eyes headlights with the LED lighting and the LED tail lights, that’s about it. New model offers six different colors: Basque Red Pearl II, Bellanova White Pearl, Catalina Blue Pearl, Crystal Black Pearl, Graphite Luster Metallic and Slate Silver Metallic. The buyer will have to pay extra for the LED fog-lights, for the 18 inch alloy wheels and even for the small rear spoiler. 2016 Acura ILX is actually a made very good job mostly because the interior who is nice and well equipped. As standard it comes with an infotainment system, electric seats and windows, partial leather upholstery as well as a dual zone automatic climate control. The aluminum trimmings are also standard which a nice touch for this price. The only drawback we see here is that in the back the space is quite limited for people taller than 6 feet which may prove troublesome.
