2013 Acura ILX gets pricing details
Pricing for this entry-level sedan in Honda's luxury brand begins at $25,900 for the 2.0-liter base model and goes to $31,400 for the 2.0-liter Technology Package and $34,400 for the 1.5-liter Hybrid with the Technology Package.
The concept for the new sedan debuted at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit back in January and within a month had been finalized as a full offering for 2013, with the surprising note that the new model would also offer the Acura brand's first hybrid.
The ILX will come with three engine packages, a 2.0L standard engine, a 2.4L sportier option with a manual transmission, and a smaller 1.5L hybrid option for better economy thanks to the electrical boost.
Positioned as a gateway model into the luxury brand's offerings, the 2013 ILX is aimed at the younger crowd and its package options showcase that. Based on the Honda Civic model's chassis, the ILX is a upfitted version of that venerable car with styling points to make it unique as well. Base and premium models come with a 5-speed automatic transmission which gives way to a 6-speed manual in the sportier 2.4L engine package.
