Review: 2019 Acura ILX

November 17th, 2018 by

For 2019, Acura brings a fresh update to the ILX. Drivers will see the ILX is sporting fresh new styling that’s eye-catching and sporty. Along with the look, Acura added some new technology features to the ILX menu. Though the appearance has changed, the heart of the 2019 ILX remains the same reliable vehicle consumers have come to rely on.


We would love to get you into your new luxury sedan at Friendly Acura. Come in and test drive the 2019 Acura ILX and our Middletown, New York dealership.



The engine within the 2019 Acura ILX remains the same engine that was offered in 2018. This is the only engine offered for the S90 and it is a 2.4-liter inline-four delivering 201 horsepower. This engine is paired up to an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The EPA estimated fuel efficiency is 24 mpg city, 34 mpg highway, 29 mpg combined.*


Features & Technology

The 2019 Acura ILX gives drivers options when it comes to features inside the sedan.  The Premium package offered by Acura will give drivers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, four-way power passenger seat, Sirius XM satellite radio, HD radio, garage door opener, a seven-speaker stereo with subwoofer, leather upholstery, blind-spot monitoring, and an updated dual-screen infotainment system. Another package offered for the 2019 Acura ILX is the Technology package. The Technology bundle delivers navigation, 10-speaker stereo, and Acura link apps.


The ILX model also had an overall update to the exterior appearance of the sedan. The ILX now features a diamond pentagon grille headline, LED headlights, and the backend of the ILX gets a new trunk lid, restyled taillights, and a new bumper. The A-Spec package is an additional package drivers can add that contributes to the appearance of the ILX. The A-Spec package adds on a new 18-inch wheel design and more options for while there are more exterior and interior colors.



We’re happy to report that, the ILX previously had optional safety features but in 2019 they have now become standard. These features include a forward-collision warning, active cruise control, and lane-departure warning. Acura making these safety options standard for 2019 shows drivers that Acura values their customer’s safety.


At Friendly Acura that value is evident, come to visit us in Middletown, New York and we will get you into the 2019 ILX for a test drive.
