2017 Acura ILX Premium vs Technology Plus Package

If there’s one thing we know, everyone’s needs are different. Families tend to lean toward bigger vehicles, while single drivers might want a speedy sedan. But the differences don’t end there. Things like cruise control, Bluetooth and infotainment systems, once considered luxuries, are now expected. Some shoppers believe driver assistance functions to be mandatory, while others prefer not to have too many complicated bells and whistles. All these differences in opinion have led Acura to offer standard, core models, with available packages so that shoppers can choose just what they like for their own needs.

Those comparing the 2017 Acura ILX Premium vs Technology Plus Package are seeking features that go above and beyond the base requirements. Acura is already known as a premium brand, so even the base 2017 Acura ILX is an attractive option, but packages allow for opportunities to pack in even more.

Choose from the 2017 Acura ILX Packages

You don’t need to add on a package to experience the potent 2.4-liter engine that offers up 201 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. Paired with it is an efficient and smooth 8-speed dual-clutch transmission. Clearly, the 2017 Acura ILX is a fine piece of machinery even in its core package.

Acura packages work much like trim levels, except you get a better idea of what’s included. When you choose the AcuraWatch Plus package, you receive a number of driver assistance features. The Premium and Technology Plus packages aren’t quite as self-explanatory, but as you can see in the table, the Premium puts a focus on a wide category of extras, while the Technology Plus primarily upgrades technology. Keep in mind that you can’t get the Technology Plus package without adding on both the Premium and AcuraWatch Plus packages first.
