There is no law that says a compact sedan can’t exist in the luxury class or that it must exhibit sedate performance. This is exactly the role played by the latest Acura ILX, which is currently available for sale or lease at the Acura of Modesto showroom. A comparison of the 2021 Acura ILX vs. 2021 Mazda 3 will show how much disparity can be found between these two sedan platforms. Acura offers the 2021 ILX in four trims, ILX (base), ILX Premium, ILX with A-Spec® and ILX with Technology. Buyers will need to choose the A-Spec® package if they want the features offered by the Technology package.
Independent reviews have praised the 2021 Acura ILX for its extensive list of standard and available features customers can have access to, given the sedan’s competitive pricing structure.
