2013 Acura ILX Premium review by CNET
CNET's take on the Acura ILX:
The good: The 2013 Acura ILX Premium's cabin features comfortable heated leather seats with power adjustment and a full array of digital audio sources. The 2.4-liter's performance is everything we'd expect from a car based on the Civic Si.
The bad: The ILX lacks the Civic Si's limited-slip differential. Its seats don't offer much lateral support. The tall dashboard is difficult to see over. The Bluetooth hands-free system features poor voice command. It's pricey for what's basically a Civic. There's no navigation available on the 2.4-liter model.
The bottom line: The 2013 Acura ILX offers everything that's great about the Honda Civic in a more luxurious form, but it doesn't really fix any of its tech shortcomings and is probably a bit too expensive.
