Now, the 2015 Acura ILX ranks 13 out of 13 Upscale Small Cars. This ranking is based on our analysis of published reviews and test drives of the Acura ILX, as well as reliability and safety data.

If you’ve looked at new-car pricing recently, you’ve probably noticed that entry-level luxury sedans (think BMW 3 Series) aren’t so “entry” anymore. To compensate, many automakers are coming out with smaller, less expensive sedans that still provide premium amenities and entertaining performance. The Acura ILX was one of the first sedans to pioneer this trend, and for 2015 it’s still going strong. But it also faces some upstart rivals.

As is the case with other Acura products, the ILX’s appeal lies in its ability to deliver solid quality and superlative value. The sedan comes with a long list of standard features, including leather upholstery, keyless ignition and entry, heated front seats and a reasonable price that makes it one of the more affordable models in its segment. We also like its balanced approach to ride comfort and handling: In an Edmunds.com “B” rating, we found that it offers the control and engagement you’d expect from a sport sedan, but there’s also a forgiving ride quality that makes this Acura easy to live with.

The 2015 Acura ILX is barely a luxury car if you go by its sticker price or its not-so-distant Honda Civic roots. And for that reason we don’t hold it against the brand that they’re not offering some of the higher-end items you’ll find in slightly more expensive sedans, such as radar-adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and heads-up displays. Granted, the brand is making big steps to head up-market with its RLX flagship sedan and future NSX super car, but there’s still room for the ILX, which no only offers the slow-selling Hybrid model for 2015. With that in mind, the ILX holds its own as a well-equipped, pleasant-driving, and comfortable compact sedan.

The 2015 Acura ILX is formed with many of the internal bits and pieces of the Honda Civic, but you’d never know it from the appearance of this significantly more attractive sedan. It never looks econo-car, but it all fits in with the aesthetic of luxury done with an eye on price.

Cargo space is average, according to reviewers, but some complain that the trunk has a narrow opening. They also report that the seat back doesn’t split to allow cargo to pass through with a passenger or two in the back seat. Some auto writers think the ILX’s dashboard has too many buttons, but most note that the infotainment system is easy to use. A rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button start, leather seats, Bluetooth, a USB port and Pandora Internet radio compatibility are standard. A Technology package that features navigation and a 10-speaker ELS surround-sound audio system is available.

Two primary packages are available to upgrade from the the base level: the Technology Package and the Premium Package. Add the Technology Package and you get premium audio with USB and Pandora integration, a navigation system with voice recognition, a rear-view camera system, and real-time traffic and weather info. With the Premium Package you get leather seating surfaces; eight-way power adjustable driver seat; two-way heated front seats; an auto-dimming rearview mirror; a multi-view rear camera; a premium sound system with Bluetooth, USB, and Pandora functionality. The Premium Package is available on all ILX models (and is standard on the 2.4L), while the Technology Package is available only on 2.0L models.

As of last year, leather upholstery and active noise cancellation are among the new features added to all models of the ILX. An eight-way power driver’s seat, heated front seats, and a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera system have also all been added as standard. Two primary packages are available to upgrade from the base specification, the Technology Package and the Premium Package. Add the Technology Package and you get premium audio with USB and Pandora integration, a navigation system with voice recognition, a rear-view camera system, and real-time traffic and weather info.

The 2015 Acura ILX entry-level luxury sedan comes in four trim levels: 2.0, 2.0 with Premium package, 2.0 with Technology package and 2.4 with Premium package.

Standard equipment for the base 2.0 includes 17-inch wheels, a sunroof, automatic headlights, heated mirrors, full power accessories, keyless ignition and entry, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, leather upholstery, an eight-way power driver seat, heated front seats, a fold-down rear seatback, active noise cancellation, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 5-inch information display screen, a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, and a seven-speaker sound system with a CD player, a USB/iPod audio interface and Pandora radio smartphone app integration.

The ILX’s interior is well-constructed, but the materials used aren’t really a step up from top non-luxury sedans. Similarly, the design features Acura’s typical high-tech vibe, but it’s nowhere near as luxurious as in the classy A3. You do get a fair amount of features, though. There is a 5-inch display screen topping the center stack for the myriad infotainment functions, and smartly placed buttons and knobs to control them. A 6-inch screen comes with the navigation system, as do voice command functionality (navigation and audio) and a nice-sounding ELS audio system.

The ILX Hybrid has been discontinued for 2015, due to slow sales. That leaves two different powertrains, both of which are pinned on balanced, lightweight platforms, offering a nice blend of comfort and sport. Don’t count the ILX as a sport sedan, though. It’s not.

The Acura ILX has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that some auto critics say has enough power for city driving. However, a few say that the ILX could use more power for highway passing. A few reviewers say the standard five-speed automatic transmission is outdated, and that the ILX would have better acceleration if it had a transmission with more gears. The ILX also offers a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that test drivers think provides significantly more power, however it is only paired with a six-speed manual transmission, which some critics say may be a detriment for some drivers. According to the EPA, the 2015 ILX gets up to 24/35 mpg city/highway, which is good for the class. While some report that it’s not the most athletic car in the class, many test drivers say the ILX offers a comfortable ride and controlled handling, with accurate steering and minimal body lean.

As the sportiest variant, the ILX 2.4L packs the Civic Si’s 2.4-liter, 201-horsepower four-cylinder engine under the hood, as well as a six-speed manual gearbox only (there’s no automatic available, which to some will limit its appeal). While this engine makes its power and torque over a relatively broad range, it lacks much in the way of character, and its punchy driving feel seems a bit at odds with the ILX’s driving character.

Still, the 2015 Acura ILX falls short of certain rivals in a few areas, particularly in regard to what’s under the hood. With the base 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, the ILX is quite a bit slower than its peers a notable deficiency, since this is, after all, a sedan with sporty aspirations. An upgrade is available with the ILX 2.4, which is guided by a more muscular 2.4 liter powertrain. However, the sole transmission choice with the 2.4 is a six-speed manual, which greatly limits its appeal.

There are two versions of the ILX available, named for their drivetrains: the 2.0 and the 2.4L. The 2.0L offers a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine rated at 150 horsepower and 140 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed automatic with paddle shifters is standard. It scores an EPA-estimated gas mileage rating of 24 mpg city and 35 mpg highway.

The 2.4L is the sporty model, with what is essentially the Civic Si’s 201-horsepower, 170-pound-foot 2.4-liter four-cylinder mated to a six-speed manual transmission–no automatic is offered with this model. What’s disappointing is that the suspension in the 2.4L is essentially the same as the rest of the ILX lineup, and it’s not as sharp as we’d like in spirited driving. Across the lineup, you get handling that’s crisp and responsive, but nothing approaching the driving experience of, say, Acura’s outgoing, half-size-larger TSX sport sedan.
