2014 Acura ILX Styling

Styling

The 2014 Acura ILX is closely related to the Honda Civic, but for the most part you'd never know it by appearance, outside or in.

The ILX is its own car, going by exterior styling. With its low and wide proportions, long hood, and short rear deck, the ILX already sets itself aside. Add in the aerodynamic character lines and Acura's signature front-end look and this is a sedan that has nice proportions and a technical, detailed look.

The Honda Civic platform underpins the 2014 Acura ILX; but you probably wouldn't guess it based on this sedan's modern, tech-detailed look.

Inside, the ILX's cabin is youthful and carefully detailed, at least in comparison with the competition, with cascading layers of surfaces in varied textures creating a flowing, connected feel across the dash and through the cabin. A center stack is placed high for good eyes-up visibility, while there are focused, easy-to-read instrument and information displays in the main panel. The rear-seat area is more plainly finished, but nonetheless feels part of the overall cabin, and it all fits in with the aesthetic of luxury done while watching the bottom line.
