The 2020 Acura ILX

 

 

With Acura’s signature Precision Crafted Performance and sleek lines, the Acura ILX attracts attention everywhere it goes. Simply put, it delivers a complete experience from when you first set eyes on it to the moment you slide into the driver’s seat. You’ll notice that seat is available in the same perforated Ultrasuede seat inserts that you would find in the NSX supercar. The ILX is also designed with the Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure to distribute crash energy evenly so as to protect you in the event of a collision.

 

You’ll also find your own personal command centre inside the Acura ILX. Human-centred technology abounds, like the Automatic Climate Control that uses GPS to track the sun’s position and a solar sensor to measure its intensity in order to maintain your set temperature. There’s also Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to keep you connected and entertained including giving you access to your music, apps, and messaging without having to take your eyes off the road.

 

Under the hood you’ll find the impressive 2.4 L i-VTEC engine that boasts 201 horsepower and offers a remarkable power to weight ratio. Pair that with sport-tuned steerings and you’ll have an Acura ILX that responds instinctively with you. It’s practically a match made in heaven. Standard paddle shifters give you race-inspired control and a direct connection to your 2020 Acura ILX. Meanwhile, Amplitude Reactive Dampers provide a comfortable, composed ride and precise handling while operating in two unique performance zones as part of the suspension.

 

The 2020 Lexus IS

 

 

The Lexus IS, on the other hand, has been engineered for exhilarating performance and is equipped with some of the most advanced and intuitive technologies from Lexus. The IS is available in two AWD modes and a turbocharged RWD. There is also your choice of F SPORT Series 1, 2, or 3 packages.

 

The Lexis IS 300 RWD model is powered by the 2.0 L twin-scroll turbocharged 4-cylinder that provides 241 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque while steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters allow you to take control. IS 300 AWD and 350 AWD give you added exhilaration with the 3.5 L V6 boasting 260 horsepower on the IS 300 and 311 horsepower on the IS 350.

 

Take advantage of the advanced All Wheel Drive system to help you maintain control no matter what the weather or road conditions are. The system will automatically allocate engine power between the front and rear axles to help you maintain optimal traction without sacrificing drivability. It’s available on the IS 300 and IS 350.
