The ILX is the small executive sedan of Acura, which was introduced in 2012. The vehicle has experienced a mid-life lifting in 2015 and apparently it will not choose much longer. Given that Honda launched the latest Civic a little earlier, it is inevitable to imagine that the next 2018 Acura ILX is not considered.
The next 2018 Acura ILX should change all that. Instead of the 2.4-liter engine, the US market is likely to receive a fuel of 1.5 liters four good for just over 200 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque. This would be more than its predecessor with the added benefit of having a lot more torque at much less RPM. The smaller engine should also be able to use less fuel than before, and with the help of a new automatic speed of ten speeds, the car will probably feel pretty fast too. Some also suggested that the new ILX will also receive a second engine option. It seems that Honda could install its new 2.0-liter turbo four which is known to make more than 300 horsepower in some applications. This engine would allow the ILX to compete with its European competitors without much hassle. A hybrid is also a real possibility, but so far Acura has been silent about it. We know that they are preparing something, especially since their models are not really the most effective on the market.
Since the ILX underwent a major upgrade last year, we believe we will not see any major changes in the exterior of the 2018 Acura ILX. However, you can be sure to keep its luxurious appearance And elegant. The new 20168 Acura ILX should feature an elegant and wider stretch of headlights, as it should already use LED technology both on the front and on the taillights. The new grid seems to have more details incorporated, which makes it more prominent and distinct. In terms of exterior colors, you can choose the Basque Red Pearl, Metallic Chandelier Graphite, Bellanova White Pearl, Black Crystal Pearl and Silver Metallic Slate.
The interior of 2018 Acura ILX remains comfortable, as on the previous version of the model. The seats are well designed and include 8 different adjustable positions. In addition, they are wrapped by leather that gives them a superior touch. Inside the 2018 Acura ILX, you’ll also find a multi-purpose on-demand (ODMD) touchscreen that you can also use as navigation. But there is much more you can do by using this 5-inch color display. The air flow and temperature settings can be easily modified by the front seat passengers or the driver and they can use the adaptive climate control of the dual zone The audio system included on the 2018 Acura ILX is compatible with FM / AM with RDS playback, has a USB interface for iPod, has an auxiliary input jack and also covers MP3 and WMA compatible with the CD player.
Prices are unknown at this time, but we expect a slight increase in prices over the price of the 2017 model, which varies from $ 28,930 to $ 35,920 (including delivery charges). This will put the new ILX in competition with the Mercedes-Benz CLA250 ($ 33,335 to $ 35,325) and the Audi A3 Sedan ($ 32,150 to $ 35,150).
We expect to see the 2018 Acura ILX in dealerships in 2017.
