Luxury Hybrid Cars - 07 - 2013 Acura ILX Hybrid
The 2013 Acura ILX Hybrid represents the very first luxury hybrid car from Honda's premium brand. The Acura ILX Hybrid is a brand new model, one which aims to capture the demographic seeking a compact sedan that is long on features and frugal at the fuel pump. The ILX Hybrid borrows Honda's Integrated Motor Assist setup, which consists of a 1.5-liter, four-cylinder gasoline engine and a single electric motor that together churn out 111 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque. Managed by a continuously-variable automatic transmission, the small Acura returns fuel mileage of 39-mpg in stop and go driving and 38-mpg on the highway, which are top-notch figures for a premium four-door.
