Spied: 2016 Acura ILX

Posted by   on September 18th, 2014 No comments

2016 Acura ILX

Edmunds.com has posted three photos listed as the 2016 Acura ILX. The images show a partially camouflaged vehicle with definite ILX design cues. Front and rear bumper updates are visible, as well as the addition of Jewel Eye Headlights and a new grille design. This could confirm a shift towards a new grille that was first seen on the Acura Concept SUV-X.

Also noted is the use of seemingly wider rear wheels, which might indicate the possibility of an AWD model for 2016. Earlier this year Autoguide.com reported that all Acura models will be getting an all-wheel-drive option by 2016.

Rumor: Acura TLX Sport Variant on the Way?

Posted by   on September 8th, 2014 4 comments

Acura TLX Type-S

Could a sportier Acura TLX model be in the works? At a recent TLX review session with an Acura team that included Chief Engineer Mat Hargett, Autoweek says a TLX sport variant was mentioned:

“A sportier version of the TLX was repeatedly hinted at by Acura personnel, but there’s no saying what might be under the hood of that. Honda’s rekindled interest in forced induction raises some interesting possibilities, though. Hey, the racing version of the TLX uses a twin-turbo V6, so we can dream.”

While this could mean a number of things, if a sportier TLX or Type-S model is indeed on the way, we hope it will be based more on performance rather than cosmetic changes.
