The 2014 Acura ILX Hybrid is meant for those who want to flaunt a stylish luxury car but do not want to spend too much on it. The USP of the car is its looks and the negligible carbon footprint it leaves. Thus it is ideally meant for the ecologically conscious, flamboyant young corporate. The car gets its power from the 1.5 liter inline for engine which comes with an integrated motor assist electric motor connected to a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). This combination generates a power of the magnitude of 111 HP at 5,500 RPM. The car saves on fuel every chance it gets. The mileage is of the order of 35 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on highways. As mentioned earlier, the appeal of the car lies in its exteriors.

The car is smartly designed. The drag coefficient is low owing to its aerodynamic engineering. The headlamps are like wings and sweep to the sides. A center strip made of chrome enhances the styling of the front grille. The front bumper seamlessly mixes with the rest of the body of the car. The rear bumper is around the contours of the car. The wrap around taillights begins from the rear fender and continues to the back.

The interiors are not a letdown either. The gull winged dashboard increases the leg space inside the car. The infotainment display is present both at the top and at the center of the dashboard. There are steering mounted controls that allow the driver to control various parameters without taking his eyes off the road. Premium features like real time weather updates, updates on real time traffic conditions, rerouting capabilities, a navigation system with the ability for voice recognition and an ELS surround sound audio system come at an extra price.
