Acura has officially taken the covers off of the production version of the 2013 ILX, the brand’s all-new compact sedan. First shown at the Detroit Auto Show in January, the production model at the Chicago Auto Show this week hasn’t changed much, aside from a few different chrome bits.

Based on the same platform that underpins the latest Honda Civic, the new Acura ILX is powered by a either a 150-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a five-speed automatic, a 201-hp 2.4-liter engine mated to a six-speed manual, or a 111-hp 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that combined Integrated Motor Assist and a CVT. The latter, which is Acura’s first hybrid is capable of delivering 35 miles per gallon in the city and 38 mpg on the highway.

“We are excited to be launching these two new luxury models as the gateway of Acura’s revitalized product lineup,” said Jeff Conrad, vice president and general manager of Acura. “As we embark on our second 25 years as a premium luxury-performance automobile brand, we are excited about the role these two vehicles will play in welcoming a new generation of luxury car buyers to the Acura brand.”

The 2013 Acura ILX is squarely aimed at attracting successful 20 and 30-somethings moving into the luxury car ranks. While what’s under the hood may not impress these folks, the ILX will certainly deliver on the value front. Buyers will also be enjoy a well-appointed interior that boasts standard Keyless Access System with smart entry and pushbutton start, along with Pandora internet radio interface and SMS text message function for smart connectivity with the world. Available goodies include Acura’s award winning ELS Surround audio system, nav system with 60 gig harddrive, and a new multi-view rear camera.
