http://cnet.co/M1AJAzAcura channels the Integra in a new entry sedan.
This is the ilx to get. Has the civic si motor
The usual formula for Acura. Take a civic make it a ilx plus $30k. Take a crv, turn it into a rdx $40+….yawn……..
Good looking car!
It looks too much like a civic, which is a cheap car, and when you buy an Acura, you rlly don't want ppl getting that impression.
crv doesnt come with a v6,back up camera sh-awd, or alot of the other things the rdx has to offer
This car seems like it replaces the older, smaller tsx.
Does it also come in 2door?
Acura Civic Si……
Do these sell much in the us?
Honda just needs to ship over the Civic Type R. Everywhere else in the world gets it except the USA. What kind of nonesense is that? We obviously need it.
Ha ha! 3.24- they forgot to put the gas cap on.
lol, saw the gas cap too…..hmmmm….what happened there?
Note to Acura stop with the letter cars and bring back luxury and the old name plates
No 2 door and no 2.4 auto option on any model limits the sales big time. The last strike is it's price is too high for what it is…
Its a the Side View GoPro Camera. You later see it's angle @ 4:51
gas cap open
Why do 5 hour energy commercials want to make me take a nap?
This thing is horrible!!!
So far, i'm not impressed at all. I much rather buy a Buick Verano in bas or the new 2.0L Turbo model with 49 more hp and 90 more lbs ft of torque and you get ALL the options for the model and you can get it with a 6speed auto/manual. Yea…. thinking Buick looks good now. And its cheaper!!!
I seriously hope Acuras executives pay attention to all of these negative reviews of their ILX… and bring back the integra…
Honestly… this should be the Honda Civic lol
is it just me, or is a manual ILX pointless? If i'm looking to get the 2.4l with a manual I'll save myself 5-10 grand and go with the 4 door SI..
The 2.4 should be standard engine, and come out with a better type-s version later down the road. I think the TSX might over shadow this model.
The integra was never a Luxury model!
you could, but the Civic's interior is cheap and its missing tech like HID lights, push button start, back up camera… etc
I completely agree, although I think both cars are targeting different audiences. I think the tsx, with the bigger engines available, is an entry level acura for men while the ILX is a 'cute' little entry model for the women out there..
all good points, the civic is definitely missing some little touches that would make it more luxurious. I gotta say though, I don't really understand why you can't get everything you just mentioned on the SI, considering it's the highest trim level for the civic. At least make them a la carte options..
What is freaking stupid is how you can't get NAV on this ILX model but you can on a Civic Si…
i agree that's a bit absurd, but it's a marketing gimic, it allows them to say the car will still cost right around 30k with all available options
I am always disappointed to see this washed out guy doing his reviews. He always has some cheap shot to make against the reviewed car
isnt that amazing? crazy
"cheap shots" as in, things that he found unappealing about the car?
I wish Honda made this the civic
This car is pointless. Way to go, Acura.
NO the gas cap was not open. That was a camera mount with the camera on it.
Acura ILX 6 spd or Buick Verano, which is better?
The Acura, since the Buick is more destined to fall apart sooner.
The back of the car looks like an infiniti… :/
This guy sounds like an ass hole!. Get a new guy !. This car is Great!!!!.
Hahahahahaha!!! Good one.
This car is a waste of money.
$30,000.000 wow that's a lot of money!
Drive the 2L with tech and Its gutless. Also it's not very comfortable for a XXL guy
Can you review the 2013 Honda accord ex-l
i see this as a great premium commuter car
So basically a Civic Si with slightly nicer interior? Now that the 2013 Civic is getting a new exterior and a better interior, why would you spend $8k more for this?
I really think a lot of people are missing the point of this car…. many people have stated the cost of the vehicle as being very high however I think people need to drive the car #1 and #2 if you lease like me you will notice an amazing value as Acura/Honda have been very aggressive in terms of lease rates and residual value. I will agree that no Navi on the 2.4L is silly but this is to push people to pick up remaining TSX's. I' m certain the 2014 or 2015 ILX will have Navi in the 2.4L then.
Nice car, but priced about $4,000 too high.
I want this car so bad. But it might be out of my price range. $15k – $20k…
The 2013 ILX hybrid doesn't have an Atkinson cycle engine like other full hybrids like the 2013 Accord hybrid, that's why it's only rated at around 39MPG combined. Honda/Acura, Earth Dreams engines would be nice to have across the Acura and Hona lineup. It'll have Atkinson cycle and OTTO cycle combined in one engine, where in the case of a high load the engine will be in OTTO cycle mode and when you are driving economically, the engine will be in Atkinson cycle mode, so hybrid like MPG
they guy is reallyyyyyyy annoying
Lol you just use that as a down payment…Put 10K down and your monthly for 5 years will be low as shit…
Agreed, its overpriced considering, Honda is using the SAME exact civic platform for this car. Meaning, the true value should be around 23K…Not fucking 28K
Yea But I'm trying to pay for the car fully with no monthly payments… We'll see what happens though…
you sir are an idiot..this guy is the best car reviewer since myself
this car sucks!!!!
i used to think the same thing. trust me u dont want this car! i just bought a 2013 civic EX-L for $21,000. best car ive ever owned! its awesome! check it out
Well I'm trying to get a Luxary Car. Yea I could just get a Civic or Accord and be happy, but I really want an Acura just for the quality and name recognition.
ohh I see. Just to let you know they're planning on refreshing the 2014 ilx. So you might want to wait to see the changes for the new model. hopefully they make some good changes. good luck with your decision!
Well this is perfect, because I won't be back in the states until the summer of 2014…
I can't even listen to this guy.
Personally I lease a ILX with the 2.4L manual trans. I added the "Launch Kit" which is basically the "Aero Kit" with the addition of multi-spoke Acura branded rims and Michelin Super Sport summer tires. It added an additional $4000 and change to the cost of the car. Like I stated in my original comment, I lease so the overall cost to me in my monthly lease payment was nothing stupid. Acura's leasing program is fantastic, people who just look at costs rather than options are missing the boat.
Yea you pretty much pointed out a few of the reasons I want to get this car. If I do end up getting the Acura, it would be the cheapest model and the features would be minimum. But I definately have a "hard on" for this car…
Acura has no name recognition. This car is horrible. Ugly, boring, lacking features. Why does Acura send boring silver cars to be reviewed.
Much prefer techless style rather than gutless style in this case lol.
better then the civic , it doesnt have that ugly ass digital speedo that civic has
…you're just a crappy driver or a drunk!!" Lmao
Within 20 miles of me there is a 2013 ILX 2.4L Premium Package for sale for $26K. It will have better resale value than the civic and 1000% more style and amenities. The $5k difference is totally worth it.
Nothing an $80 Garmin can't do.
that guy is annoying. he is tooooooooo picky. i dont even care about those fine details
His complaints regarding the drivetrain and navigation system are what you call "fine details"???
All this d!ckhead wants to talk about it a NavScreen in every video.
CNET should dump this annoying douchebag!
I totally agree. Not to mention that the honda civic is a economy car, however the ILX and all other acura products are luxury car. I personally prefer the TSX over the ISX though.
"we never should've killed off the integra"truer words have never been spoken.
I'm still waiting for the two door hatch to replace the RSX. That with the 2.4L 201hp engine would be pure, unadulterated magnificence.
Did he just say "California's crappy pavement"? Come to northeast Ohio and let's talk about crappy pavement…
About the same price as the CLA but the CLA is way nicer looking.
What is the RPM flow that he mentioned at 3:55? I own this car and I always feel that the transmission a little different than the earlier car i drove.
Rpm float..means the revs hang between gear change
Is this worth an almost $5,000 increase in price over the Honda Civic SI sedan? Just curious, but doesn't seem like you get much more; plus with the Civic, the price that I was making this calculation off of included Navigation.
Needs dual exhaust.
The front looks like the old Camry!
22/31 is pretty bad, and the smaller engine and auto aren't much better.
0:29 "Latest version of Acura's Might Morphin' Power rangers breast plate" that one just killed me.
go go power rangers nuh nuh nah nuh nuh nuh
"Duck tape the phone there" Brian is just awesome with his logical sarcasm
Getting mine Saturday wohooo
Horrible review this guy acts so negative uuuugh thumbs down
this guy is the biggest douche that's ever douched.
Does the Bluetooth system work with Android
Acura with below comment. They should have never dumped the RSX either.
Power rangers 0:29 lol
Ending your review with “so…good luck with this” … there truly is no one like Brian Cooley. Love it.
“We never should have killed off the Integra” well its 2022, and they brought back the Integra name for the ILX’s replacement.
