its not terrible
The air-flow vents inside the cabin looks HUUUUUUUUUUUGE!
Interesting how they detuned the K20A base engine. The CSX in Canada offers 160hp, albeit it "recommends" putting in premium (which nobody does). Will wait for pricing before I pick this car apart. If pricing is close to CSX pricing, then do want!
Wait, what? 111 hp total (gas + electric motor) in the hybrid? Wonder how slow that biatch is gonna be
And how is it that the 150hp engine only gets 24/32 city/highway? WTF?

Acura is down on power but then if you jump a class the Buick Regal is much slower than a VW CC but each car directly competes.
The engine is likely the R20. Old technology still which means a new DI engine could be around the corner. Peak torque seems rather low so I assume the ILX will be geared to feel peppy at the expense of fuel economy.
Looks bland, this should've been the new Civic, of course the one shown here being the highest trim level. The new RDX crossover looks even more bland, for entry level premium cars I say not good.
Acura (and Honda) has lost it's mojo, interiors look like higher end Hondas and exterior styling is as bland as ever and IMO, unable to compete with either Lexus, Infiniti, Audi, Mercedes, etc.
