Based on Acura.com’s Future Vehicle page, a refreshed 2019 Acura ILX is just around the corner.
While the current generation ILX feels like it should be nearing the end of its lifecycle, new patent images uncovered by Car and Driver suggest it will be getting an extended lifeline with a facelift for the 2019 model year.
The images show a revised ILX with the diamond pentagon grille and restyled headlights. The updates appear to be grafted onto the body of the 2013-2015 ILX design, which means there will likely be other changes – exposed exhaust perhaps?
With new turbocharged engines already available in the current Honda Civic, we can only hope the ILX would be getting some big changes sooner rather than later.
