Acura’s new 2013 baby ILX starts at $25,900

Following its production debut in Chicago, Acura has just announced the pricing for the all-new 2013 ILX compact luxury sedan.

“The 2013 Acura ILX will serve as the gateway to the Acura brand,” said Jeff Conrad, vice president of Acura sales. “At the leading edge of a new, sporty compact segment, the ILX delivers style, value, performance and connectivity to younger buyers looking to move into the luxury market.”

Powering the new ILX is a range of four-bangers. The base ILX comes with a 2.0L four-pot that produces 150hp mated to a five-speed Sequential SportShit automatic. The next level option is a 2.4L four-banger that produces 201hp and comes standard with a six-speed manual. The five-speed automatic is still optional. Lastly is the ILX Hybrid, which gets the Honda CRZ’s 1.5L four-banger and Integrated Motor Assist electric motor powertrain. That’s mated to a CVT transmission, allowing the ILX Hybrid to achieve 39/38/38 city/highway/combined mpg.

The base ILX begins at $25,900 while the 2.4L with the Premium Package as standard starts at $29,200. Topping the line out is the ILX Hybrid with the Technology Package, which starts at $34,400. For the full pricing list, see below.
