Is This the Face of the 2016 Acura ILX?

2016 Acura ILX Teaser

It looks like a new teaser image of the 2016 Acura ILX has surfaced. The image was posted on AcuraZine and to my knowledge it has not yet been released by Acura’s official channels. All the design elements seem to match up with the spy shots we’ve seen so I would say this is the real deal. The original file dimensions suggest it’s ready to be posted on Instagram, so expect to see it officially from Acura soon.

The only other thing I can add is that so far it’s looking really good.

LA Auto Show Design Challenge: Acura Human/Machine Interface Concept

Posted by  on October 30th, 2014 No comments

Acura Human/Machine Interface Concept

This year’s LA Auto Show Design Challenge theme asks the question: “How Will Cars Interact with Us In 2029?” Honda USA’s entry, the Acura Human/Machine Interface(HMI) Concept explores the possibilities of shape-shifting surfaces controlled by the passenger through mental and physical connections.

DESCRIPTION

2029: Technology and human beings have converged to allow a deeper level of interactivity between human and machine. Implants are common – they allow humans to connect with objects and modify them mentally and physically; they enable an enhanced experience when it comes to comfort and efficiency. This allows technology not only to cater to the needs of a passenger, but also to anticipate them. The future interior of the autonomous Acura car will be a sandbox for creativity and usability, giving our vehicles a greater role in passengers’ everyday lives. Our concept is comprised of an exterior and interior shell, connected through a modular adjustable mesh that can flex and shape to custom-fit a passenger’s needs. The interior is also constructed out of a fabric-like material that can be changed by simply pushing or pulling on surfaces that can accommodate one or two passengers. With the help of biometrics and after repeated use, the vehicle will learn the preferences of each user and anticipate their needs by changing its shape.

Gallery: Acura TLX Full Wrap in Blue and Yellow

Posted by  on October 28th, 2014 No comments

Acura TLX Full Wrap

Here’s something different from Acura of North Toronto. Looking to stand out in a bright and bold way, the dealership took a pair of Crystal Black Pearl Acura TLXs and wrapped one in matte yellow, the other in metallic matte blue. To add contrast and a little more style, they kept the roof and side mirrors black, tinted the windows, and wrapped the grilles in matte black. The look is very polarizing, but it should definitely turn some heads.

Thanks to Michael from Acura of North Toronto for sharing the photos.

2016 Acura NSX Prototype Nürburgring

It seems the 2016 Acura/Honda NSX Prototype has returned to the Green Hell for more testing in a video posted today. The vehicle’s plate numbers and a few other minor differences suggest this is indeed separate footage from the batch that was previously posted in July.

Recent reports state that the second generation Acura NSX is on track for a 2015 launch in North America.

Spied: 2016 Acura ILX Part 2

Posted by  on October 22nd, 2014 No comments

2016 Acura ILX

Last month we posted a link to an Edmunds.com gallery that had three images of a partially camouflaged 2016 Acura ILX. 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.

Acura promises to deliver “a new powertrain, more forceful, sporty exterior styling, and substantially upgraded interior design” for the 2016 model year.See the rest of the spy photos on autoguide.com – 2016 Acura ILX Spotted Playing in the Sun.
