Stay Updated on the 2016 Acura ILX

December 26th, 2014 by

If you’re like us, you’ve been following any and all news for the upcoming 2016 Acura ILX, refreshing the official Acura page at least a couple of times a week to see if anything new came out. Would you believe that you can just add our blog to your bookmarks and check back here periodically for the latest news? It’s true! Because we want to know about the new ILX just as badly as you do, we’ll be updating this blog with any and all official news when we have it.

And right now, we thought you could use a refresher about just what we know about the ILX.

What We Know So Far

Acura has done well to update the ILX inside and out, in the cabin and under the hood, and while we have yet to learn everything about the new model we are quite excited for some of its features, including:

  • A 201-hp four-cylinder engine paired with an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission complete with a torque converter. This automatic transmission is designed to shift gears faster than you, but that shouldn’t stop you from taking control with a paddle shifter for that old school feel.
  • Acura’s Jewel Eye LED headlights become standard for the 2016 ILX. When matched with the sedan’s lowered front end, new grille, and new rear profile, it delivers an eye-turning look befitting a luxury sedan.
  • State-of-the-art safety features found on AcuraWatch include a rearview camera system, a radar backup that has your blind spot covered, a futuristic tape measure that alerts you if you’re getting a bit too close to another car, and an automatic braking system that takes over and slows/stops the ILX if you can’t.

This is just the tip of the iceberg, and we can’t wait to uncover the rest for you.
