TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the 2016 Acura ILX

2016 Acura ILX Real 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. see full Acura ILX review
