Acura being one of our favorite automobile brands has always allured us with its luxury vehicles, all these years. Now that the 2022 model year cycle is at the corner, we found our most reliable Henderson Acura dealership preparing for a grand auto show, with some major highlights focused on the 2022 model year version of the Acura ILX. It was again one of our most favorite model, and we have already experienced many luxury rides with its earlier versions, and that is yet another reason, why we were curious to experience a luxury ride with the latest version of our favorite luxury sedan 2022 Acura ILX.
Our test drive with the 2022 Acura ILX reminded us of our ride experiences with the models of BMW 2-Series, Audi A3 series, and Mazda 3 series, all sharing more or less the same specifications and overall impressions. But we must say that the Acura counterpart had something special to cast a longer spell on our minds.
Power Behind the Luxurious Rides
The 2022 Acura ILX is a luxury segment sedan model that has translated a performance car into a luxury one. For this the automaker has made good use of a 2.4-liter inline-4 engine that is paired to an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission to generate 201-hp when driven with the front wheels. The combination of the said engine and the gearbox has a magical effect, allowing the drivers experience a lot of drive fun, while honing their driving skills. With this powertrain loaded under its hood, the 2022 Acura ILX sedan models can keep up to the expectations of the buyers who go for a luxury car not only to enjoy a luxury cabin, but also a luxury ride, where the external disturbances find little scope to infiltrate into the serene interior atmosphere. For this, Acura has also installed the most effective noise cancellation feature that shuts up the external noises every time they crop up.
With the above-mentioned standard powertrain working under its hood, the 2022 Acura ILX can earn a decent fuel-economy figure of 24 mpg in the city roads and 34 mpg on the highways, as estimated by the concerned authority, namely, EPA. It is a score at par with most of other sedan models of this segment.
Interior Comfort and Cargo
Inside of every 2022 Acura ILX model, lies a cabin lavishly designed. It is wrapped in high quality materials and leaves enough space for every traveler to sit comfortably while enjoying the engaging ride.
All the cabins of the 2022 Acura ILX luxury sedans are roomy, especially for the driver and even for the front-seat passenger. But that doesn’t lead to any deprivation of luxury and comfort for the back benchers.
Rather we can say, irrespective of where in the 2022 Acura ILX sedan you are seated, you can enjoy the luxuries of the huge number of standard luxury equipment like a dual-zone automatic climate control system, a sunroof, power sport seats with heating facility, and plenty of cubby storage to keep the interior space clean of multiple items.
To sum up we can share our test drive and ride experience with the 2022 Acura ILX sedan at the Henderson Acura dealership turned out to be much more than just impressive.
