  • ILX starts at $26,795 including destination
  • Hybrid version is available from $29,795
  • Honda Civic based ILX goes on sale next month

The upcoming Acura ILX compact luxury sedan will start at $26,795 including destination when it begins arriving in dealerships early next month. That's the latest from Honda's premium brand, which recently began production of the Civic-based ILX at a manufacturing facility in southeastern Indiana.

While the starting price of $26,795 buys only a base-level ILX, many car shoppers will find that it offers an impressive level of standard equipment. All versions of the ILX include remote keyless entry, leatherette upholstery, a power sunroof, automatic climate control and even a center-mounted touchscreen audio system that can be paired with smartphones to access Pandora Internet Radio and read text messages aloud. A 150-horsepower 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine and 5-speed automatic transmission, both borrowed from the Civic, serves as the sedan's standard powertrain.

While the base-level ILX is fairly well equipped, those wanting a little more luxury may be interested in two optional packages. For an extra $3,300, the Premium package adds leather upholstery, 17-inch alloy wheels, a multi-angle reversing camera and heated seats. The $2,200 Technology package includes a navigation system, Homelink garage door opener and an upgraded 10-speaker sound system.

Car shoppers who want more power can get a 201-horsepower 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine borrowed from Acura's TSX sedan available for $30,095, while those looking for better fuel economy can opt for the ILX Hybrid for just $29,795. Based on the Honda Civic Hybrid, the ILX Hybrid includes a standard continuously variable automatic transmission and is expected to get around 40 mpg in city or highway driving.

Although a Civic-based Acura sedan has been available in Canada for several years, the ILX is the smallest Acura vehicle offered in the U.S. since the RSX was discontinued in 2006. Rivals include the hybrid-only Lexus CT200h and HS250h, both starting above $30,000, the new Buick Verano sedan, from $23,500, and the Audi A3, which starts at $28,145 and offers a fuel-efficient diesel option.

What it means to you: The upcoming Acura ILX is the latest player in the growing premium compact segment.
