Acura ILX Hybrid: 39 mpg city, 38 highway

Oh, what changes in just a few model years. Not long ago, the 2014 Acura ILX range would have elicited wows by compact-car shoppers. Yet today, some might find it a little disappointing that no model in the ILX--not even the ILX Hybrid--hits the 40-mpg mark.

2.4L models come out particularly short on fuel-efficiency, with EPA ratings of 22 mpg city, 31 highway. The base 2.0L model does better, at a respectable 24 mpg city and 35 mpg highway.

The Hybrid tops them both--and outshines Lexus' HS 250h--but its 39 mpg city and 38 mpg highway are less than impressive in light of recent non-hybrid offerings from the likes of Ford, Mazda, and various non-hybrid models. Yet if you go only by City ratings, 39 mpg is still near the leading edge--especially for a car with this level of comfort.

Conclusion

The 2014 Acura ILX lineup is quite fuel-efficient as a whole; but it's the ILX Hybrid that's a standout among luxury models.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
