About Acura ILX
The refreshed 2016 ILX was unveiled during November 2014 at the Los Angeles Auto Show, and went on sale in February 2015. It comes with the “Earth Dreams” direct injected 2.4-liter four-cylinder DOHC i-VTEC engine mated to an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, a very closely related powertrain to that of the TLX, first introduced in 2014 (as a 2015 model). “Jewel Eye” LED headlamps (low and high beams, DRL pipe and amber turn signals) similar to those on other Acura models (RLX, MDX and TLX) are standard, along with new LED tail lamps. A new “A-Spec” trim was offered, which included sporty exterior and interior styling enhancements. Production of the 2016 ILX began during January 2015 moving to the Marysville Auto Plant in Marysville, Ohio.
In September 2018, Acura revealed another facelift for the ILX. The ILX follows Acura’s new design language, and incorporates the company’s new “Diamond Pentagon” grille. The jewel-eye headlights are more sleek and so is the new front bumper. In the rear of the ILX, the taillights are more angular, and the license plate has been dropped from the trunk to the rear bumper. In the interior, the overall design has remained the same, although there are new seats, with the availability of red leather (only on the A-Spec), and an updated infotainment system. It is still the same system as before, but it is 30% faster. AcuraWatch is now standard on all ILX’s. The powertrain has remained the same for 2019.The ILX A-Spec now makes the exterior look more aggressive. It comes with 18″ wheels, red or black leather seats with ultrasuade inserts, aluminum pedals, and more. Pricing for the 2019 model is less than the previous model year, starting at $25,900.
Honda has offered several different four-cylinder gasoline engines in this model, similar to those in the CSX, TSX, and Civic Si.
