What Features in the 2020 Acura ILX Are Most Important?

The Acura ILX comes standard with a power moonroof, LED headlights and taillights, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, heated front seats, and push-button start. The standard AcuraWatch suite of active safety features includes forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane-keep assist and adaptive cruise control.

Should I Buy the 2020 Acura ILX?

The ILX performs well and offers a lot of features for the money, but it has a loud cabin that doesn’t offer a lot of headroom. The field of entry-luxury cars continues to expand, so checking the competition before you buy is a good idea.
