Acura has made a fine tune to its specs for the most part by doing away with the old auto’s 4 cylinder, 150-hp, two liter and five-speed automatic gearbox engine for a direct-injected 2.4-liter that makes 201 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. Acura’s unorthodox dual-clutch automatic transmission with a torque-converter now exchanges eight forward gear levels and decreases cruising revs to a manageable level, an awesome change over the old car’s sort of «mechanical» power train. With this new blend it is gauged that the 2016 ILX ought to hit 60 mph over two seconds faster than the 2.0-liter model. The engine therefore gives a high-performance driving experience while improving fuel efficiency and producing lower emissions, all this via an “intelligent” valve control system.
Body (Chassis) enhancements come as extra body propping and bracing that increases torsional firmness by a large percent, upgraded springs and shock absorbers, more rigid suspension bushings, thicker back antiroll bar, re-tuned steering for a more immediate reaction and more braking power. Adjustment to the electric steering makes the 2016 ILX’s steering slower, weightier and more straightforward than before.
The Display is an easy to understand touch screen that aggregates all the controls you need in a seven-inch, touch screen. The audio system, climate and your programmed shortcuts can thus be controlled from here.
The adaptive cruise control is a safety feature that lets you set a requisite speed and set distance from the detected car in front of you making it easy for cruising in light traffic. The collision mitigation braking system uses radar to eliminate the risks for accidents by tagging the seat belt and automatically braking.
