What's New in the 2020 Acura ILX?

The 2020 Acura ILX carries over with no major changes. See the 2020 Acura ILX models for sale near you

Which ILX is the Best?

We think the ILX with the Technology package brings all the high-tech luxury, audio and safety features expected of this class at a price that undercuts similar cars from Audi and Mercedes-Benz. Those seeking a sportier ride should add the A-SPEC package to the mix. Find an Acura ILX for sale

How Much Does a 2020 Acura ILX Cost?

The 2020 Acura ILX comes in one model with four possible options for packages.

Standard on the ILX ($26,995) are 17-in alloy wheels, a sunroof, keyless entry with push-button start, automatic climate control, automatic LED headlights, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, an 8-way power driver's seat, leatherette seating surfaces, heated front seats, heated side mirrors, Bluetooth with streaming audio capability, a 5-in color display that controls many accessory functions (including a read-aloud SMS text feature), a rearview camera, a 6-speaker 160-watt sound system with iPod/USB connectivity, Pandora Internet Radio and active sound cancellation. The AcuraWatch package adds adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, lane-departure warning, collision-mitigation braking and forward-collision warning.

The ILX Premium package ($26,745) adds a 7-speaker, 360-watt premium sound system, leather seating, rear cross-traffic assist, a blind spot monitoring system, a 7-in multiuse touchscreen, HD and Aha Radio, Siri Eyes Free, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a power passenger seat and a 2-position driver's-seat memory feature.

The ILX Technology package ($30,645) includes the Premium package plus an 8-in display, a multi-view rearview camera and a hard-drive-based navigation system that offers 15 gigabytes of music storage and a 10-speaker ELS audio system.

The ILX A-SPEC package can be added to either the Technology ($32,645) or the Premium ($30,745) package and brings 18-in alloy wheels, sport seats with Lux Suede inserts, a black headliner, fog lights, a rear spoiler and aluminum sport pedals.

In back, the ILX has plenty of room for a couple of adults, which shouldn't come as a surprise. The Civic has been similarly roomy for quite a few years so although this is a compact sedan, your rear passengers won't necessarily feel the pinch.

You will, however, notice space limitations in the trunk, where maximum cargo capacity is a modest 12.3 cu ft.

2020 Acura ILX vs the competition

2020 Volkswagen Jetta GLI -- The Jetta GLI is more powerful than the ILX and it has a more engaging ride, better in-cabin technology and better sport seats. Its interior is equally refined and it has a lower base price but the VW name doesn't hold the same cachet as Acura.

2020 Audi A3 -- The 2020 Audi A3 costs more than the ILX but it offers more luxury features and more personality, plus the option of AWD. There's also the high-powered S3 to consider.

2020 Mercedes-Benz A 220 -- The A-Class sedan is more expensive yet smaller than the ILX and also less powerful. However, it does offer the option of AWD and has a much more sophisticated dash and interior design.

Used Audi A4 -- A 2014-2017 Audi A4 provides more power, a larger cabin and trunk, the option of AWD and better-quality materials inside the cabin.
