Acura announces ILX price - $25,900

According to Autoguide, Temple of VTEC etc., Acura announced last night that the starting price of the ILX would be $27,000. With the premium or technical packages added (leather or navigation, back up camera....) That will likely bring the price close to $30,000. Not much room between that and the base TSX which comes equipped with leather.

RE: Acura announces ILX price - $27,000

Here's another link. It looks like the journos just finished the press launch. This means we will have reviews soon.

AutoGuide's Colum Wood notes that the Buick Verano, which is the ILX's closest competitor, starts at a far lower sticker price – $22,585.

According to Wood, Acura staff who were asked about the difference seemed unfazed, and suggested that the two cars didn't really compete with one another.

The ILX, as well all know, is heavily based on the current Honda Civic, and shares the same engine as the Civic Hybrid and Civic Si, as well as offering a 150 horsepower 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. It seems rather audacious for Acura to start pricing at such a level – the level of content or refinement better be able to justify such an enormous gulf, as even the Verano, with its improved engines and substantially improved sound deadening and interior, is able to maintain a smaller pricing delta relative to the Cruze.

The all-new 2013 Acura ILX will go on sale at Acura dealerships May 22, 2012, with a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP*) starting at $25,900 Acura announced today. The ILX offers remarkable value for the money with robust feature content and premium appeal.

"The 2013 Acura ILX will serve as the gateway to the Acura brand," said Jeff Conrad, vice president of Acura sales. "At the leading edge of a new, sporty compact segment, the ILX delivers style, value, performance and connectivity to younger buyers looking to move into the luxury market.
"The all-new Acura ILX features a windswept exterior design with 5-passenger cabin, a choice of three powertrain options, including Acura's first-ever gasoline-electric hybrid, and a well appointed interior that is smart, spacious and sporty. It will offer a number of new, premium features including a standard Keyless Access System with smart entry and pushbutton start, along with Pandora® internet radio interface and SMS text message function for smart connectivity with the world. Like all Acura models, the ILX is equipped with a rich list of standard features including a power moonroof, aluminium wheels and Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®.

The entry-level ILX (starting at $25,900) is powered by a 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder engine producing 150 horsepower paired with a Sequential SportShift 5-speed automatic transmission. For those seeking a more dynamic driving experience, the ILX can be equipped with a 2.4-liter engine ($29,200, includes the Premium Package) with an output of 201 horsepower featuring a close-ratio, six-speed manual transmission. The ILX Hybrid (starting at $28,900) makes use of a 1.5-liter inline engine and an Integrated Motor Assist® electric motor. Paired with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), the ILX 1.5L Hybrid has an EPA estimated** city/highway/combined fuel economy rating of 39/38/38 mpg.

As with all Acura models, the ILX will have a long list of standard features, multiple trim levels (a Premium Package and Technology Package), and excellent standard safety features- including Acura's acclaimed Advanced Compatibility EngineeringTM (ACETM) body structure, front, side and side-curtain airbags, 4-channel anti-lock brakes and Vehicle Stability AssistTM (VSA®). Although yet to be tested, Acura anticipates that the ILX will achieve top crash safety ratings from both NHTSA and the IIHS.

The Premium Package (available as a $3,300 option; not available on the ILX Hybrid model) features leather seating surfaces, heated front seats, a power driver's seat, an upgraded 360 watt stereo system with XM® radio, HID headlights, foglights, 17-inch aluminium wheels, a multi-view rearview camera and an Active Sound Cancellation system to make for a quieter cabin.

Building on the Premium Package, the Technology Package (available on the ILX with 2.0-liter engine for $2,200) adds Acura's award winning ELS Surround® audio system and a full complement of relevant technologies, including AcuraLink® Satellite Communication System, Acura Navigation System with Voice RecognitionTM, AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic with Traffic ReroutingTM, AcuraLink Real-Time WeatherTM with radar image maps and HomeLink®. The navigation system makes use of a hard disk drive (HDD) with 60 gigabytes of storage capacity- including 15 gigabytes that can be specifically allocated for music storage. The Technology package is also available on the ILX Hybrid for $5,500 and includes all Premium Package features except 17-inch aluminium wheels.

The Acura ILX will be manufactured (using U.S. and globally sourced parts), exclusively at the company's state-of-the-art Greensburg, Indiana plant, one of only three plants worldwide to receive J.D. Power and Associates' 2011 Platinum Award for outstanding product quality, and the top award for any factory in North America.
