Acura ILX
Top Safety Pick
Front Crash Prevention: Superior (5 points)
The ILX is the lowest-priced entry in the Acura lineup, which can reach as high as $65,000 for the flagship RLX or $156,000 for the exotic NSX. The ILX falls from the top TSP+ rating only because it’s headlights earn a “marginal rating. But the entry-level Acura does quite well in collision avoidance when equipped with the optional Acura Watch, which includes a Collision Mitigation Braking System with Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist System, Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Departure Warning. Acura Watch makes use of a windshield-mounted monocular camera and front grille-mounted radar system, providing enhanced sensing that can anticipate a collision and serve up warnings or — in certain instances — initiate emergency braking and steering.
Additional Costs: Acura Watch adds $1,300 to the base ILX price.
