2021 Acura ILX Wins Kelley Blue Book 5-Year Cost To Own Award
For the fourth year in a row, the Acura ILX has been awarded a 5-Year Cost to Own award from Kelley Blue Book in the Entry Level Luxury Car category!
Kelley Blue Book uses its data to find and award vehicles whose cost of ownership is lowest in their respective segments, respective segments, taking depreciation, insurance, fees, maintenance, state fees, and fuel costs into consideration.
The ILX offers a reasonable starting price and low maintenance costs which made it the perfect choice for the Entry-Level Luxury Car category title.
With a tidy business plan of offering one front-wheel-drive drivetrain — a 201-horsepower 2.5-liter 4-cylinder with an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission — and an interior that breathes comfort and convenience, the ILX brings its best game to the entry-level luxury market.
In addition, the ILX offers impressive EPA ratings with 24 miles per gallon city and 34 miles per gallon highway. Heated front sport seats with 8-way power adjustability and dual-zone climate control are also notable features inside of the ILX.
“Not only is the 2021 Acura ILX compact luxury sedan a gateway into the premium world of Acura ownership, but it might also serve as an introduction to luxury motoring in general,” is how Kelley Blue Book Expert Reviewers put it.
“It’s one of the least expensive brand-new luxury cars on sale in the United States. Yet it can still compete with sophisticated European rivals like the Mercedes-Benz A-Class and Audi A3. The ILX is a completely convincing premium vehicle with a comfortable cabin full of many luxury and safety features.”
