The four-wheel disc brakes are designed with several subtle enhancements to improve their performance over conventional cars of the same size.
- Strengthened calipers improve effectiveness while enlarged splash shields increase fade resistance.
- The pedal shape is designed to direct force onto the center of the pedal to increase response.
- All ILX models have 12.3-inch ventilated discs in the front and 11.1-inch solid discs in the rear.
- Electronic Brake Distribution uses the anti-lock brake sensors to determine the proportion of brake force to be channeled to each wheel for increased performance and stability.
