Review Of 2015 Acura ILX Hybrid
The exterior is stylish, Japanese architecture being predominant in this really nice-designed piece of engineering. It has an elongated hood with a short rear deck. With 17 inches aluminum alloy rims that are included in the Standard package it will certainly look more refined and elegant.
It would be a right choice for anyone wishing a new nice looking, well-equipped car that can significantly lower fuel consumption and fuel bill. We certainly do hope that one of the next models in this lineup will offer more power because this is one of the segments in which we would like to see improvements.
