TrueDelta Reviews the Available Features of the 2016 Acura ILX

2016 Acura ILX Available Features: Pros
YearComment
2016 Both the Acura ILX and the Audi A3 have scored well in crash tests, and both are available with the latest safety features, including forward collision warning, automatic braking, lane departure warning, lane departure prevention, and blind sport warning. The Acura is more nearly able to steer itself, and its auto-braking was more effective in tests by the IIHS. But what really sets the Acura apart is the ability get the most valuable safety tech as part of a $1,300 Acurawatch Plus package on an ILX with no other options. To get the same features on the A3 you must also spring for the top option package, bumping the car's sticker $11,000 above the Acura's. If you want a compact sedan with all the latest safety features and a premium brand, but little else, the ILX dramatically undercuts its competition. see full Acura ILX review
