Acura offers the ILX in four trim lines, which are all basically just advanced package offerings on the already well equipped ILX Standard. Prices start at $25,900 for the base model, which includes LED headlights, a power moonroof, leatherette trimmed sports seats with 8-way power adjustment on the driver’s seat, heated front seats, a reverse camera, dual-zone climate control, and Bluetooth connectivity. In the most expensive format, the ILX A-Spec with Technology Package will set you back $31,550, but for the money, you get sportier interior and exterior trimmings, 18-inch alloys, a 10-speaker premium audio system, navigation with traffic information, and AcuraLink connected services.
Getting behind the wheel of the 2019 Acura ILX is as affordable as $25,900, nearly $5,000 cheaper than premium rivals like the Audi A3 and Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedans. The base ILX Standard is well equipped for the money, but if you want Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and leather upholstery you’ll need to get at least the Premium model for $27,650. Higher models can get pricey for the offering, with a fully loaded model including premium paint options, accessory wheels, body accessories, and other options, in the range of $37,000 including a $995 destination charge.

The Standard model ILX is well equipped, with three main packages that can be added. The Premium Package at $1,750 adds leather upholstery, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality, SiriusXM satellite radio, power adjustment for the front passenger, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and blind spot monitoring. If you’re going to opt for anything more than the Standard model, this is the must-have package for the leather and connectivity features. The addition of the Premium Package also gives buyers access to a special paint option of Canyon Bronze Metallic.
The Technology Package is an over-and-above option for the Premium Package and adds navigation, an ELS Studio 10-speaker sound system, GPS-linked climate control, traffic information, and voice recognition for an additional $1,900 on top of the Premium Package.
The A-Spec package is a styling pack had in conjunction with either the Premium Package or both the Premium and Technology Package, that equips 18-inch alloys, LED fog lights, black chrome accents, dark chrome details, A-Spec badges, A-Spec side sills, a gloss black decklid spoiler, gloss black rear bumper trim, A-Spec seats, A-Spec steering wheel, sport pedals, a black headliner, and red instrument gauges.
The A-Spec package costs $2,000 excluding the Premium and Technology packages that must also be optioned. The A-Spec also comes with a special $400 paint option, Apex Blue Pearl.
