With Acura recently announcing the 2013 ILX would start at around $27,000 for the base 2.0-liter 150 hp model, the Honda luxury arm has now revealed more pricing details about the remaining two versions.
While official pricing hasn’t been confirmed, at the car’s launch presentation in Scottsdale, AZ, Acura has said both the 2.4-liter performance model and the Hybrid version will start at around $30,000 – a modest $3,000 price increase for either a significant performance or fuel economy gain. Acura’s 2.4-liter 4-cylinder model, borrowing its engine from the Civic Si makes 201 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque and comes exclusively with a 6-speed manual transmission. The ILX Hybrid also borrows its powertrain from the Civic Hybrid using a 1.5-liter gasoline engine and lithium-ion battery pack and gets an average 38 mpg rating.
All ILX models will come standard with keyless access, a power moonroof, Bluetooth, 16-inch aluminum wheels, as well as a USB and iPod hookup.
To compare, the 2012 Civic Si sedan is priced at $22,405 and the 2012 Civic Hybrid at $24,050.
