There’s a lot to consider when you’re buying a new car, but if you are in the market for an affordable, entry-level, luxury sedan, the 2019 Acura ILX may be just what you’re looking for. The ILX has always been a great choice for anyone looking for a sleek and luxurious automobile without breaking the bank. The good news is Acura recently announced a price drop of over $2000 for the 2019 model. With a sleek new design, improved technology, and a starting price of 26,895, it may be hard to find a better deal among comparable vehicles. (1) The price drop didn’t come out of nowhere as Acura has had a tough time keeping sales on pace with the competition, namely the Audi A3 and Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class. Acura is taking a gamble that the price decrease will drive sales.
The 2019 ILX comes standard with many of the features you’ve gotten use to from Acura, including heated seats, remote entry with push-button ignition, dual zone climate control, power sunroof, and a power driver’s seat. All models are equipped with the full complement of the newest AcuraWatch self-driving and safety technology, but for those looking to add more features, there are premium and technology packages available for an additional 1,750 and 3,650 respectively. Additional features include leather interior, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and more. The technology package goes from 30,545 and is equipped with 3D navigation, real-time traffic updates, and a user-friendly rear camera (2).
Additional cosmetic upgrades are available on the Premium package and the Technology package, including larger wheels and new styles of headlights, taillights, and spoilers. As for safety, the driver assist technology includes lane change and collision mitigation warnings and braking comes standard on all models(3).
There are a lot of great new 2019 model vehicles to choose from, but if you’re looking for a dependable, entry level, luxury sedan at a reasonable price, it’s hard to do better than the 2019 Acura ILX. With a long list of style and tech upgrades and a reduced sticker price that comes in lower than the Honda Civic Touring ($28,195)(2), the ILX is now one of the best values among all 2019 vehicles in its class. If you like sleek, compact, sedans, take a good look at the ILX before making your next car purchase.
