The 2018 Acura ILX has the goal of delivering drivers with a comfortable ride, and the ILX achieves this goal. Under the hood of the ILX you will find a inline-4 paired to a 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. This engine and transmission combination is then matched with a chassis which elevates the comfort of the ride.
