2014 Acura ILX Hybrid Priced
The 2014 Acura ILX Hybrid joins the rest of the Acura lineup for the new model year, boasting a price tag under $30,000. Generation Y shoppers have made the ILX the only luxury model out of the top ten vehicles they purchase, according to J.D. Power and Associates. Powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine with an Integrated Motor Assist electric motor and continuously variable transmission, the 2014 Acura ILX Hybrid produces 111 horsepower, 127 pound-feet of torque, all while maintaining an EPA-estimated 39 mpg city/38 mpg highway. Pokey, sure. Fuel-efficient, absolutely. The 2014 ILX Hybrid comes loaded with standard features--as a not-so-cheap compact luxury sedan should--including keyless entry and ignition, Pandora radio, SMS text messaging capabilities, as well as Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, power moonroof, and 16-inch aluminum alloy wheels. When equipped with the Technology Package, the ILX receives an ELS Surround audio system, AcuraLink communication system with real-time traffic and weather, Acura Navigation with Voice Recognition, and HomeLink. Exterior features include folding and heated side mirrors, integrated turn signal, speed-sensing windshield wipers, heat-rejecting window glass, and sport-minded rear spoiler. The interior offers a leather-wrapped sport-style steering wheel, manual cloth-trimmed seats, rear seat with armrest, and carpeted floor mats. The base model 2014 Acura ILX Hybrid starts at $28,900 before destination charges, while the ILX Hybrid with Technology Package is priced at $34,600. Destination and handling charges are an additional $895. The 2014 ILX Hybrid is on sale now. Source: Honda
