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.

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.

Spy Photographer Brenda Priddy & Company has posted 3 photos of a suspected 2016 Acura ILX test mule.
“2016 Acura ILX – Lots of camo for a last update before the next generation arrives for the 2018 model year.”- Brenda Priddy & Company
The vehicle’s visible greenhouse and tail lights identify it as an ILX, but there are notable changes to the front bumper, and possibly the front fenders and rear bumper. Along with exterior updates, there have been rumors of powertrain changes for the 2016 mid-cycle model change.

Watch the latest version of the Acura/Honda NSX prototype run the Nürburgring for the first time. With some notable exterior changes, many have suggested this could be very close to being a production model.

A Chinese website has posted photos of a partially camouflaged China-spec 2015 Acura TLX. These new TLX images don’t reveal much more than previous spy shots, but they do offer more contrast and crisper lines than the last batch which were rather unflattering due to poor light. The lone interior shot shows us an electric parking brake and wood trim.
The North American TLX is set to debut on April 16th at the New York International Auto Show.

A new batch of 2015 Acura TLX spy shots have emerged today from KGP Photography:
“We caught a couple of undisguised, fresh-from-the-factory 2015 Acura TLX test cars, giving us the first look at at the truly production-spec replacement for the TL and TSX.
The TLX Concept that debuted at the recent North American International Auto Show in Detroit wasn’t exactly a complete look at a showroom-ready TLX. The black and white test cars caught on their post-build shakedown runs reveal toned-down front- and rear-fascias. The concept showcased a deeper front air-dam and more aggressive rear bumper, with flared sculpting and bold chrome accents. Those aggressive details are not found on the final production models, making for a more tame TLX that will enter Acura’s lineup after its New York Auto Show debut.” KGP Photography
UPDATE: Sources at TOV now say that this is not a North American model.

Recently posted on AcuraZine were these photos of a camo-tattered 2015 Acura TLX. Originating from a Chinese website this TLX is likely a China spec model, but usually there are minimal exterior differences from North American models. It looks like the “gap” in the lower front bumper has been closed, reminding me a bit of the third generation TL. We also get a first peek inside the TLX, and it appears to have the dual screen centre console set up found in the RLX and MDX.

A Motor Trend Editor has caught what appears to be a lightly camouflaged production 2015 Acura TLX. The three photos posted today reveal a slightly toned down version of the TLX Prototype, with less chrome and a few simplified features. Gone are the funky side mirrors which we knew wouldn’t make it, and to the dismay of many, no sign of exhaust tips.
