Taking the Scenic Route Through Alberta’s Rockies
Anyone who has spent some time in the province of Alberta, Canada will likely have travelled between its two largest cities, Edmonton and Calgary. The road most travelled is Highway 2, at under three hours it’s the most direct route if you want to quickly get from one city to the other.
After picking up a 2014 Acura MDX loaner from Acura Canada’s Calgary office one June morning, I hopped onto Highway 2 towards Edmonton, only to exit off after just a few minutes. I had already decided weeks beforehand that I wouldn’t be taking Highway 2 North. I was Westbound, towards the majestic Rocky Mountains of Alberta. This detour would eventually lead me to Edmonton, but not before experiencing a road trip through one of the most scenic drives in in the world: Banff to Jasper via Highway 93, also known as the Icefields Parkway.

Here’s another take on a refreshed ILX exterior from graphic artist Hondatalover. The render incorporates Acura’s Jewel Eye headlights and an updated, more aggressive front bumper. Overall I think these changes work really well for the ILX. We expect both exterior and powertrain changes for the 2016 mid-cycle model change. Click here for a 900×450 image.
