Drivers are used to seeing the 2020 Acura ILX dominate Kelley Blue Book’s 5-Year Cost to Own lineup, so it’s no surprise to see it coming in at the head of the Entry-Level Luxury Car segment for the third year in a row. KBB themselves perfectly sum up this Acura ILX awards supremacy: “The ILX offers a greatest-hits list of values that make it easy to own and drive for comfortably under $30,000.”

KBB 5-Year Cost to Own Awards

While looking at the sticker price provides a good idea of upfront costs, the team at Kelley Blue Book know there’s more involved than just that one number. That’s why their Cost to Own Awards are designed to look at the cost of ownership over an initial five-year ownership period.

They consider a whole host of factors covering everything from fuel costs to maintenance projections. Once again, the Acura ILX came out on top while the Acura MDX took top-billing in the Luxury Mid-Size 3-Row class.


2020 Acura ILX KBB Review

It takes more than just manageable costs to make KBB’s exclusive list. As they note, “the 5-passenger ILX lets you afford legit luxury for thousands less than rivals from Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and BMW.”

Their glowing review covered:

  • Performance: “the ILX’s engine out-muscles most of its competition … and its slick twin-clutch 8-speed automatic is also a cut above the rest.”
  • Comfort and Features: “We also admire the ILX’s comfort with hustling along the edges of twisty roads while at the same time more than holding its own in the standard features department.”
  • Safety: “Also standard is AcuraWatch, which includes such modern safety necessities as forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control.”

As they conclude: “the 2020 Acura ILX rides four strong winds — high initial value, Honda-sourced levels of reliability, great resale value, and robust safety features — in a small 4-door sedan that never forgets to be fun to drive.”
