2017 Acura ILX Packages were made to stack

Sometimes when motorists set out to trade-in or purchase a new car, they aren’t entirely aware of what they are getting themselves into. The reason for this is that most automakers offer up different trim levels, or grades, that all have different names and aren’t self-explanatory. When you shop for the 2017 Acura ILX, you buy a standard, core package with all the necessities you’d expect in a modern car and with the key performance features you’ve likely focused research on.

Next, you select a package. All the package stack, like trim levels, but you know what you are adding on to the model. The first package is the AcuraWatch Plus, which adds driver assistance features, like Lane Keeping Assist. Next is the Premium package, which does not require any other package to apply. As you can see from the table, it adds a variety of upscale features for convenience, safety and technology. If you’d like to upgrade to the Technology Plus package, which offers up a wider array of driver assistance and technology features, you’d first have to add on the Premium package, which means you’d have both sets of features.
