News analysis of reliability and safety data.

The 2013 Acura ILX is stocked with standard features and offers several engine choices. Still, reviewers think the all-new compact sedan blends into the crowd because competitors have better performance, gas mileage and cargo space.

The new 2013 Acura ILX is the smallest sedan in Acura’s lineup. Reviewers say that the base engine is solid for everyday driving, but recommend the more powerful four-cylinder engine that’s paired to a manual transmission for shoppers who prioritize performance. If green driving is important to you, the hybrid model trades power for fuel economy.

Regardless of the powertrain you select, there’s no need to upgrade to a higher trim for features like Bluetooth, a USB port and voice text messaging because all of these are standard on the ILX. Though it’s well-stocked, the ILX doesn’t have the most cabin space. The rear seats will be tight for tall passengers, but this is common among compact cars.

The ILX’s trunk space is respectable, but other sedans in the class have more cargo room.

Overall, reviewers say the 2013 Acura ILX has good performance and a lot of standard features, but they think the ILX still manages to blend in among its rivals. Several critics say that competitors are better choices because they match or surpass the ILX’s cargo space, performance or fuel economy ratings, all for about the same price. But if you choose the ILX, they say the ILX’s posh persona and impressive tech features won’t disappoint.

There’s only one other hybrid among upscale small cars, and that’s the Lexus CT 200h, which costs about as much as the ILX Hybrid. Neither model has a sporty, engaging ride, but the Lexus CT 200h comes out on top with higher fuel economy ratings. The CT 200h has a similar list of standard interior features that includes a USB port and Bluetooth, but it stands out with two knee airbags, which the ILX doesn’t have.

Test drivers agree that the Buick Verano prioritizes comfort. They found that the Verano’s quality materials, high-tech features, comfortable seats and hushed cabin make it one of the most refined cars in its class. If you want a smooth-riding sedan with comfortable front seats and impressive trunk space, auto critics say the Verano should be a good fit for you.

The 2013 Acura ILX is an all-new compact car. There are six models available: a base five-speed automatic, five-speed auto with premium package, five-speed auto with technology package, six-speed manual with premium package, Hybrid and Hybrid with technology package.
