2017 Acura ILX – Yet again, the newest Aura ILX comes as a sensible choice for anyone shopping for a compact luxury sedan. Although the segment being awash with better alternatives than itself, it still offers a plethora of reasons why buyers should give it a second chance in their garage. The Acura ILX release date is expected sometime in the first half of 2017.
The 2017 Acura ILX redesigns have brought about a spacious interior accommodation, a reduction in the base MSRP, a sporty driving feel, and generous standard features. On the flipside, though, buyers will have to contend with it because its infotainment system isn’t user-friendly as those of its rivals, road noise is significant, and the interior material quality rather unrefined vis-à-vis German rivals.
While there is no denying the fact that the 2016 Acura ILX changes were for the betterment of the model, the efforts Acura made didn’t amount to anything significant relative to its history. For 2017, however, Acura hopes to turn around its misfortunes by staging a well-orchestrated plan to bring it to par with other vehicles in its class. This, it hopes, will be achieved by the changes and redesigns the model is hyped to come with.
New driver aides have been introduced in addition to the existing ones. The 2017 Acura ILX interior is phenomenal thanks to the premium materials plastered on its surfaces. Also, the convenience, and infotainment technologies have been spruced up relative to the previous model. Throw in the rock-bottom price tag and you’ve got yourself an excellent option for everyday usability.
Foibles, nevertheless, exist as previously mentioned above. Hopefully, the 2017 Acura ILX isn’t the only vehicle in its class that offers an array of talents. German rivals include the 2017 Audi A3, 2017 Ford Fusion, 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, and the 2017 Honda Accord.

For an MSRP starting from $36,600 for the A3 Convertible, expect features such as a superior cabin quality and design, top crash test scores, nimble handling, fuel-efficient and punchy engines, and ample standard equipment. The 2017 Acura ILX release date should be expected before this fall as a 2017 year model.
The 2017 Ford Fusion price starts from an MSRP of about $22,495, and that alone makes it a viable choice in terms of finance relative to what the competition offer. The Ford Fusion refresh offers fuel-efficient turbocharged engines, an available all-wheel drive system, an improved touchscreen interface, hush cabin, sharp handling, and advanced technologies. The 2017 Acura ILX release date should be expected mid-this year.
