2016 Acura ILX

Official release from Acura Media Newsroom:

Nov 20, 2014

Mike Accavitti, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Acura Division

Good morning and thanks for joining us.

It’s been an exciting show so far, and we’re thrilled to be with you today to showcase a thoroughly redesigned, refreshed and reborn Acura ILX sports sedan.

Acura is on the move, step by step, we’re executing on our vision for the Acura brand, adding more performance, more luxury prestige, and more dynamic proportion in design. And we’re gaining energy and strength with every new model launch.

It started two years ago on the SUV side of the lineup with the second-generation RDX, which has run its race at a torrid pace, turning in 25 consecutive months of sales records. It was followed to market by an all-new, third-generation MDX, which is not only the sales leader in its segment, it’s the best-selling 3-row luxury SUV of all time.
