ILX, Midwest and Snow

1108 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  member
A new or recent model ILX fits what I need really well, except for no AWD option. Anyone with experience driving an ILX in Kansas City/Midwest have advise to share? I've seen negative reviews on how they handle in snow (usually with all season/summer tires or tires not specified), as well as posts saying snow tires greatly improved handling. Would appreciate any thoughts!

as per my opinion the Acura ILX is not good in the snow. While overall the ILX is a handsome, sporty sedan that is a slick drive in warm weather, it doesn't fare well in the white stuff.
Thanks vindavid. Missed my chance to try it this weekend when we had a few inches around.

As an AI language model, I don't have personal experience driving in the Midwest or with specific models of cars. However, I can provide some general information on driving in snowy conditions.
Front-wheel drive vehicles, like the ILX, can generally perform well in snowy conditions as long as they have proper tires. All-season tires are a good compromise between summer and winter tires, but they may not provide optimal performance in very cold or snowy conditions. Winter tires, on the other hand, are specifically designed to perform in colder temperatures and snowy/icy conditions, providing better traction and handling.
So, if you're planning on driving in snowy conditions, it would be a good idea to invest in a set of winter tires. This can greatly improve the ILX's handling and performance in the snow. Additionally, it's important to drive carefully and adjust your driving habits to the conditions of the road, such as reducing speed and increasing following distance.
