Acura ILX
2016 Acura ILX

When first introduced in 2012 as a 2013 model, the Acura ILX had a clear and important mission: to be Acura’s most affordable sport sedan and serve as the gateway to the Acura lineup. The versatile ILX quickly found an eager and typically young audience that embraced its sophisticated design, lively performance and upmarket quality.

For 2016, the ILX benefits from significant upgrades to its styling, powertrain, technology, luxury refinement and safety features. With freshened exterior styling, an all-new direct-injected engine and 8-speed dual clutch transmission, an expanded range of trim and option packages and signature Acura technologies, the 2016 ILX delivers more strongly than ever before on its mission.

The 2016 ILX gets numerous styling upgrades including restyled front and rear fasciae, front grille and rear LED combination lights, plus restyled 17-inch, 10-spoke aluminum alloy wheels. All ILX models come equipped with Acura’s signature Jewel Eye® LED headlights and feature upgraded interior materials, optional upsized wheels and tires, enhanced connectivity, and a host of new premium features, along with significant improvements to cabin quietness, sporty handling and collision safety engineering.
