The 2.0-liter, aluminum-alloy i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine is remarkably smooth, making it a joy to rev up to 6500 rpm where it produces 150 hp (SAE net).
This is the same 201-horsepower, 2.4-liter, aluminum-alloy i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine that has been so well praised in the TSX for its high output and sporting character.
The 5-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift paddle shifters gives you the best of both worlds by providing the convenience of precise and intuitive automatic shifting as well as shift-for-yourself control.
For those who enjoy getting the most out of a high-revving engine, the ILX matches its 201-hp, 2.4-liter engine with a 6-speed, close-ratio manual transmission. Six ratios make it easy to keep the ILX in your favorite part of the engine’s rev band, while the smoothness of the linkage makes shifting a joy.
The ILX uses a combination of MacPherson struts for the front suspension and a multi-link arrangement in the rear. Using a strut-style front suspension makes more room available for crash reinforcement. The multi-link rear suspension helps maximize second-row seating and cargo space—all while providing outstanding handling and ride quality.
The ILX steering system is a good example of the subtle ways a luxury car differentiates itself from more conventional vehicles.
The four-wheel disc brakes are designed with several subtle enhancements to improve their performance over conventional cars of the same size.
Though not apparent to the naked eye, body structure is one of the best examples of what distinguishes the ILX from conventional cars of its size.
A variety of measures were taken to ensure the ILX delivers the refined ride of a luxury road car.
