2016 Acura ILX – First Drive



Today is Monday, February 8th, which is also the first day of Chinese New Year! This is the year of the Monkey. I would like to use this opportunity to wish everyone who celebrates Chinese New Year a very prosperous, happy and healthy year!

As for MoVernie on the MOVE, my team and I will continue to be on the MOVE to bring you the latest happenings around our beautiful city of Toronto as well as hot events/parties around the world.

What a great way to start off the Year of the Monkey, Acura Canada has just handed me with the keys to the brand new 2016 Acura ILX. This will be a super busy week for the MoVernie crew as there will be lots of events happening throughout the week. There will be Chinese New Year celebrations, NBA All-Star Toronto, Canadian International Auto Show, my mom’s birthday, Valentines Day and Family Day.


It’s going to be a crazy week but I am glad the Acura ILX will be on the MOVE with me throughout the adventurous journey.

From the first glance, this Acura ILX is a nice compact size car that looks luxurious, sporty and modern. In particular, I really like the Acura signature jewel headlights. I was told that the predecssor comes with the 2.0L 150hp engine. But for this new 2016 mid-facelift, they have made a heart transplant and provide this ride a 2.4L 201 hp engine. That’s about 50 more hp. For a compact car like this , I am sure it will be super quick! I can’t wait to give this ride an acceleration test.


Follow me on Instagram (@RealMoVernie) and Twitter (@MoVernie) as I will be posting awesome photos and videos of this 2016 Acura ILX throughout the entire week at events such as the NBA All-Star Week and Canadian International Auto Show (CIAS). Stay tuned!

And MoVernie is outta here!
