- Which should you buy, 2013 or 2014? The 2014 gets more features for a minimal price increase.
Acura launched its new entry-level sedan in 2013, but it hasn't exactly been lighting the sales charts on fire. For 2014, the base ILX gets more standard features, "providing more content and value for the luxury brand's gateway sedan," the automaker said in a statement.
The compact sedan gets eight new standard features for an extra $1,000. Model-year 2014 base models start at $27,795, including an $895 destination fee; model-year 2013 models started at $26,795. New standards include 17-inch alloy wheels, new leather seating surfaces and leatherette door liners, an eight-way power driver's seat, heated front seats, a multiangle rearview camera, a new audio-system subwoofer and a noise cancellation system. These features were previously available as part of the Technology or Premium packages.
Model-year 2014 lineup pricing is below and includes destination; the compact sedan goes on sale Tuesday. Acura says information on the 2014 Acura ILX Hybrid will be announced at a later date.
