2015 Acura ILX Overview


TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability And Durability of the 2015 Acura ILX

2015 Acura ILX Reliability And Durability: Neutral
YearComment
2016 Acura should have an easy win over Audi in reliability. But in recent years Audis have been doing much better, while Acuras have often been glitchy. During the warranty period their reliability could be about the same. The records of past generations of cars suggest that the Acura will be a much more solid bet after the warranties end, but the long-term records for the current cars won't be compiled until the 2020s. So the jury's still out on ILX vs. A3 reliability. full 2016 Acura ILX review
 

TrueDelta Reviews the Gas Mileage of the 2015 Acura ILX

2015 Acura ILX Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2016 High-revving largish fours aren't the fashionable route to fuel efficiency. But the 201-horsepower 2.4-liter engine when mated to an eight-speed dual clutch automated manual transmission (DCT) returns EPA ratings of 25 mpg city, 36 mpg highway--better than the 2013-2015 ILX managed with a 150-horsepower 2.0-liter engine. The Audi with its au courant 180-horsepower turbocharged 1.8-liter checks in a little lower, with 23/33. But the Acura isn't quite best-in-class. The Mercedes-Benz CLA250 manages 26/38. Notably, both the Audi and the Mercedes also have DCTs, though with "only" six and seven speeds, respectively. Then there are hybrids and diesels. The ILX used to be available as a hybrid. But the ILX Hybrid's fuel economy wasn't stellar (39/38) and its performance was so uncompetitive even compared to the Prius-based Lexus CT 200h (43/40) that Acura killed it after just two model years. The Audi A3 TDI, the segment's lone entrant with a diesel, rates 31/43. For a combination of performance and fuel economy, it's hard to beat. Except that as I write this Audi dealers can't sell them, pending an investigation into whether they violate EPA regulations. A final note on fuel economy: the TLX's EPA figures are only a single mpg lower than the ILX's. full 2016 Acura ILX review
