Electric Power-Assisted Rack-and-Pinion Steering (EPS)

The ILX steering system further improves the unique performance experience you’ll enjoy behind the wheel.


  • Notably rigid mounting for the steering assembly enhances linear feel for greater steering precision, while reducing low- and high-speed vibration.

  • The rack-and-pinion is tuned to provide a smooth, linear transition between generous power assist at low speeds and a firmer feel at higher speeds.

  • Electronic – rather than hydraulic – power assist doesn’t draw mechanical power from the engine. This further increases efficiency.
