The 2016 Acura ILX comes with six different trim levels: base, Acura Watch Plus Package, Premium Package, A-Spec package, Premium and A-Spec package and Technology Plus package. You will choose the Acura ILX with adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning system, automatic braking for frontal collision mitigation, a lane departure warning, Lane Keeping Assist and streets departure reduction.
The premium package builds on standard equipment of the base car as well, but it leaves the Acura Watch Plus devices instead of blind-spot monitoring, rear cross traffic reports, leather front seats, a four-way power passenger seat, driver memory settings, an auto-dimming rearview mirror , an 8-inch upper information display, an additional 7-inch touch screen and a seven-speaker audio system with HD radio, satellite radio and Aha Radio smartphone app integration.
2016 Acura ILX Interior
While there are some enhancement for styling, the 2016 ILX interior usually carries over from the previous year. This means that the materials are still not infarct enough better than what you’ll find in top standard sedans like the Accord, when everything seems to be pretty well screwed together. In contrast, the Audi A3 feels much classier and more luxurious interior than the Acura ILX.
You can get a full set of features, though. The Premium and Tech Plus models prosperity from a new, larger touch screen on the center console. Even with the optional larger screen, however, the ILX setup not our favorite. It splits audio and navigation functions in two screens and the rotary knob in the center of the dashboard is less intuitive than the arm controllers to use in the ILX German competitors.
