Interesting. Most people have decidedly negative opinions about the ILX. I think it’s fine, but the olde platform is noticeable from the 10th gen Civic. I do agree the DCT is great though.Oops I did it again … sold my 2017 Sport Touring ... Just worked out the math … I was able to sell my Civic to Carmax and get into an Acura ILX for $200 less per month. … yup you read right. The Sport Touring was almost $30G new, the 2016 ILX $15,999 (from OffLeaseOnly) It's one year older, but has same mileage as Civic ($25k). & I do like it better. The electronics work better, the stereo sounds better, It has leather, GPS, technology package, a solid 200 hp K24 motor, 8 speed dual clutch automatic with torque converter, etc.
BEST of all, on the Acura, the f'ing Collision Mitigation crap stays off when I turn it off!!!! YUP (unlike the Civic which turns itself back on every time I switch off the car,)... that shyt nearly killed me a couple times on the Civic. This feature alone is worth the change!!!
Plus, the $30k Civic was in the dealer twice to fix the GPS - & it was still fuct up when I sold it. You never know what's gonna happen with cars! The Civic was a good car, But I love the ILX
PS: I took ILX to the autocross with some Federal RSRR tires - it handles shockingly well!!
Exceeded all expectations. I got complimented by one of the Miata drivers.
No kidding, that's how good it ran!
