The 2016 Acura ILX Is Built for Style and Safety

2016 Acura ILX

The 2016 Acura ILX is designed not only for luxury and style, but for beautiful drivability. It’s one of the best luxury sedans you can buy. Just what is it that makes the ILX so special? Let’s take a look…

Exterior Features

One of the most innovative features of the new ILX is its Keyless Access System. Plenty of cars have some form of keyless entry. The car senses when the key fob is close to it, and unlocks automatically, so that you can open it without digging through your purse or pocket for the keys. However, the ILX’s Keyless Access System takes things a step further. For your safety, it only unlocks the door when your hand touches the handle. And it has a built-in failsafe protocol to use the fob to start the car even if its battery has died. The ILX also comes with a multi-view rear camera that provides three different image options to give you the clearest possible view when backing out of a tight space. And Jewel Eye LED headlights give you the brightest, clearest illumination at night, while lasting longer and using less energy than traditional halogen bulbs.

Interior Features

Now that we’ve covered the outside of the 2016 Acura ILX, what’s the inside like? Its spacious interior features plush, dual-level heated seats, which are standard on all models. The Premium package also features leather trim and seat position memory for up to two different drivers. It also comes with hands free Bluetooth capabilities, audio-based SMS text messaging, and a 5-inch color display for music information, messages, and more. As an optional feature, you can even get voice recognition—a system which Acura has been developing and refining for over a decade, for maximum sophistication. Over 600 different voice commands allow you to control the radio, navigation, interior climate, and much more.

Safety Features

One of the ILX’s most important standard safety features is Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA). With a variety of sensors, it constantly monitors your individual wheel speed, steering angle, throttle position, and more, to determine when you may be oversteering or understeering. When that happens, the VSA automatically reduces the engine’s torque and applies the brakes to each wheel as needed, to help make the car stable again. The ILX also comes with a blind spot information system, to let you know whether or not it’s safe to change lanes, and a rear cross traffic monitor, to help you when backing out of a space with low visibility, by alerting you to the presence of oncoming vehicles. The 2016 Acura ILX lets you drive in both safety and luxury, wherever you go. Stop by Jay Wolfe Acura today, and let us customize the ILX that will best meet your family’s specific automotive needs.
