2013 Acura ILX
2013 Acura ILX

New For 2013

The ILX is a new addition to the Acura model line, one priced and sized to attract young buyers to the brand for the first time.

Overview

There isn’t a single automotive luxury brand today that isn’t looking to capture the hearts and minds of a younger generation of buyers. Acura hopes its 2013 ILX resonates with that demographic. On sale since spring 2012, the ILX shares its underpinnings with the Honda Civic, but it’s hard to call it a badge-engineered product. Every inch of sheetmetal is unique to the Acura, as is the cabin, which is awash in premium materials. In spite of the shared Civic underpinnings, the ILX drives rather differently than its Honda brethren. Dual-rate dampers and unique rear suspension geometry help improve ride quality over rough surfaces. Body roll is kept in check, and the car is surprisingly neutral when pushed hard into corners. The base model bundles a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with a five-speed automatic transmission. Those seeking more pep can opt for a 2.4-liter four, which is only available with a six-speed manual. Fuel-conscious buyers can also opt for the 111-hp Hybrid model, although its sedate acceleration will hardly set any pulses racing. Standard equipment on all ILX models includes keyless entry and ignition, a power moonroof, Bluetooth phone connectivity, and a Pandora Internet radio interface. The optional Technology Package adds ELS surround sound and navigation, but it’s not available on the 2.4-liter model.

Safety

Front, side, and side curtain air bags; ABS; traction and stability control; electronic brake distribution; brake assist functions; and a tire pressure monitor are standard.

You'll like:

  • Not just badge engineering
  • Surprisingly balanced chassis

You won't like:

  • Nearly costs TSX money
  • Limited options on 2.4-liter model
  • Hybrid feels anemic under hard acceleration

2013 Acura ILX Front Left View
The Acura Integra was one of the seminal sporty compacts and a star of the brand's early lineup. The Integra eventually went away, and when Acura's most recent entry-level model, the TSX, floated up in size and price, it left space once again for a youthful entrée into the brand. It was with fond memories of the Integra that we ordered a new Acura ILX for a yearlong test. Maybe things were simpler back in the late 1980s and early '90s (which is starting to feel like a long time ago), but the notion of a Honda Civic made nicer and sportier doesn't seem so complicated, really. Our year with the ILX, however, suggests that it is.

Summary
Honda is recalling certain model year 2012 Honda CR-V and model year 2013 Acura ILX vehicles. If the manual or power door lock is activated while an interior front door handle is being operated by an occupant, the cable connecting the interior door handle to the door latch mechanism may become loose and move out of position. There is a possibility that the cable can move far enough out of position to prevent the door from properly latching.
Consequences
If the door is not fully latched, the door may open while driving or in a crash, increasing the risk of personal injury to the vehicle occupants.
Remedy
Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front door latch assemblies in the affected vehicles, free of charge. Additionally, the interior front door handles in certain Honda CR-Vs will also be replaced, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on, or about, August 16, 2012. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-800-999-1009.
