A few more higher resolution photos of that same vehicle have now emerged on AutoGuide.com showing even more detail. Again, there are exterior changes all around with the Jewel Eye Headlights and new grille design being some key points.

2016 Acura ILX

Official release from Acura Media Newsroom:

Catch the Debut of the 2016 Acura ILX at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show

10/20/2014 – TORRANCE, Calif.

Big Changes in Store for Acura’s Sport Sedan

Acura is preparing to unveil a substantially new 2016 ILX at the L.A. Auto Show next month as the brand aims to raise the stakes again in the entry-premium sedan segment. Already bringing in more buyers under the age of 35 to the segment than any other entry-premium model, the new 2016 ILX stands to solidify and broaden its appeal with a comprehensive update that includes a potent new powertrain, more forceful, sporty exterior styling, and substantially upgraded interior design.

Much like its hot new stable mate—the brand new TLX—the 2016 ILX will bring a sharper performance focus while delivering a greater set of high-value comfort, convenience and safety features that consumers desire in the increasingly competitive entry-luxury field.

Catch the unveiling of the ILX on Thursday, November 20, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. in the Acura booth at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Rumor: Acura Considering New All-wheel Drive Strategy

Posted by   on October 13th, 2014 No comments

Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD

Speaking with Honda Executive Koichi Fukuo in Japan, Automotive News has reported Acura is considering a new long-term plan, one that could see all-wheel drive as a standard feature on all future models.

Fukuo specifically mentions the success of Subaru, which offers AWD standard on all its models except the BRZ Coupe. “Looking at Subaru, I felt that we have to have a strong, clear direction as a brand… What’s important is to have the technology, styling and performance to evolve all together. Otherwise, I don’t think we can increase the number of loyal customers, so-called Acurists.” Fukuo told Automotive News.

Automotive News says the AWD plan is one of many ideas to “rethink the brand” and that nothing has been finalized. While a transition to an all-AWD Acura lineup could take a few years, the idea of having an AWD option for every model isn’t far away. Currently the only Acura model without AWD as an option is the ILX.
