The 2018 Acura ILX received an Initial Quality Power Circle Rating of five out of five from J.D. Power, topping its class and receiving a quality award in the Small Premium Car segment in the most recent J.D. Power 2018 U.S. Initial Quality Study (IQS).

Serving as an automotive industry benchmark study for over 30 years, the annual J.D. Power Initial Quality Study measures design and defect problems in new vehicles.

People who have purchased or leased a new vehicle and have owned it for at least 90 days respond to a survey, telling J.D. Power what has gone right and what has gone wrong with their cars, trucks, SUVs and vans.

The ILX produces 201 hp and 180 lb/ft of torque and has an EPA fuel economy rating of (US) 25 mpg city/35 highway/29 combined2.

New for 2018, the Acura ILX adds a Special Edition trim, which includes 18-inch wheels, side sills and a rear spoiler from the A-Spec package, making it an excellent value in its class.
