Red 2020 Acura ILX driving on city street

The 2020 Acura ILX boasts stellar MPG ratings, especially considering how its efficiency doesn’t impact its track-ready performance. The 2020 ILX reaches an EPA-estimated 24 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway*.

The 2020 ILX utilizes on one of the luxury sedan world’s finest powertrains to deliver a combination of race-car power and fuel-saving driving dynamics that’s rarely found – even in this immensely competitive segment.

2020 Acura ILX Fuel Economy

The Acura ILX’s 2.4L 4-Cylinder engine perfectly complements it 8-Speed DCT (Dual-Clutch Transmission) with Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters. DCTs get one clutch for odd-numbered gears (1, 3, 5, 7) and a different for even gears (2, 4, 6, 8), so the gear one up or down from the one you’re on is always preloaded. Eight ratios help your engine run at or near maximum efficiency across the speed spectrum.

This design was originally used for racing, so you can expect faster, more fluid shifts alongside impressive efficiency scores with a negligible loss of torque between gears when driving a 2020 ILX. Some DCT models have been known to shift roughly, so Acura added a torque converter for smoother launches on its models.
