|My Week with the ILX|
If you've been following me on Twitter and Instagram, you've probably seen bits and pieces of my week with the Acura ILX. Acura was kind enough to lend me a shiny new black 2013 ILX hybrid to drive around. I took it to visit family, run errands, a blogger event, dinner with my best friend, shopping, and work, so it definitely got around the greater Los Angeles. I fell in love hard, and I fell in love fast. Not only was it gorgeous and handled beautifully, but it had all the bells and whistles too! You can even talk to it (it has voice controls!). It's a lovely entry level luxury car that feels safe, is super efficient, and comes equipped with enough technology to please the music lovers and techies alike. Here are some highlights from driving the car:
|The car is a nice size (I like driving smallish cars) and is visually striking. It looks sporty and made me feel instantly cool while driving. And yes, it has a sunroof.|
|The keyless entry was a nice touch, as was the push-button for the engine. Everything in this car just felt modern and high-tech to me.|
|Driving in the rain was a breeze. The car feels safe and sturdy.|
Overall, the Acura ILX was such a pleasure to drive. I felt so spoiled at first, and once I drove it around a little more, it felt like I always had it. It was a little overwhelming with all the buttons, controls, and gadgets, but I'm sure I would've gotten used to them over time. If I had the means, I'd definitely get one. It just fit in with my lifestyle so well and was impressive in almost every way possible--looks, safety, mileage, efficiency, and technology. I even found creative uses for the cup holders (ahem--camera lenses and rolled up ballet flats). Sigh. I miss this car so much.

If I won a #weekwithILX, I'd [do something really cool, obviously] @iamericaleigh
Acura will be rewarding the best answers with $50 or $100 gift cards.
You can even win your very own ILX for a week, so be creative!
Disclosure: Acura has invited me to test the new ILX and share my honest thoughts through social media.
