For the money of an ILX you could easily slide into a loaded GLI or get a nice lease on a VW CC.
I am not pushing my own car, but there is nothing that really makes the ILX stand out. It looks meh, it performs meh, and is marketed towards the entry level businessman. Sorry but I know of nobody in that market who would want this car.
I've seen one in the flesh. One. It looked nice, nicer than the pictures show. But it wasn't anything special.
