2020 Acura ILX: 5 Reasons to Buy

The 2020 Acura ILX is a luxury subcompact sedan that's also highly functional. If you appreciate the finer things in life but still have to pay attention to the practical, here are five reasons to buy the 2020 Acura ILX sedan.

1. Low Base Price Offers Value

First, the price of a new 2020 Acura ILX can't be ignored. The sedan is priced well below what many of its competitors cost and offers an excellent value to budget-conscious drivers. MSRPs for the model may be even less than what some non-luxury cars cost. Of course, incentives often make the initial MSRPs even more attractive.

2. Long List of Standard Features

Second, the 2020 Acura ILX comes with a long list of standard features, even though it's so affordably priced. Some of these are vital safety items, which are included in AcuraWatch, and others add conveniences. Among the conveniences, there's:

  • Keyless entry and push-button start
  • Heated front seats and leatherette upholstery
  • 160-watt audio system with USB and iPod connectivity
  • Pandora Internet Radio and active sound cancellation
  • Bluetooth streaming connectivity and read-aloud SMS text receiving

There, of course, also are many optional features that can be added. Leather upholstery, premium audio, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and in-dash navigation are just some of the available upgrades.

3. Excellent Projected Long-Term Reliability

Third, you can trust that this sedan will run well for a long time because it's an Acura. Acura has an established reputation for long-term reliability, and the 2020 Acura ILX is expected to run smoothly well after an initial purchase. There aren't any changes from the 2019 Acura ILX, so dealerships already have a year of records on how the sedan should perform.

4. Solid Future Resale Values

Fourth, the value and projected long-term reliability that 2020 Acura ILX sedans offer mean that they'll retain their value well into the future. Whenever the time comes to sell or trade in one of these cars, drivers can anticipate getting a good price for their used car.

5. Large 2.4-Liter Engine

Finally, no luxury sedan would be able to compete in this segment without a powerful engine. The 2020 Acura ILX has a large one that produces plenty of oomph, delivering 201 horsepower and 180 pound-feet to get the sedan going. One the highway, this generator manages to still maintain an economical 34 miles per gallon.

See the 2020 Acura ILX

To see this sedan in person, come to McGrath Acura of Downtown Chicago and take one for a test drive. There are lots of 2020 Acura ILX sedans in stock right now at the dealership's 1301 N. Elston Ave., Chicago location, and you're welcome to test-drive them (or other Acura vehicles) Monday through Saturday. Make the short trip over from Des Plains, Berwyn or any other nearby neighborhood, and you might be asking to go back home in a different car.
