Gallery: Acura China’s 2013 ILX

Acura China’s 2013 ILX

The 2013 ILX has recently been added to the model lineup on acura.com.cn, joining the RL and TL as the third sedan offered by Acura China. From what I can tell, the ILX will be offered in China as a Hybrid model only. It receives some of the usual Chinese spec updates: clear corners for the front headlights, headlight washers, and modified tail lights. It also gets a nice little feature that I know some people noticed were absent in the North American ILX: side mirrors with turn signal indicators.

Acura NSX Patent Images Revealed

Acura NSX Patent Images

I hope everyone loved the NSX Concept that Acura unveiled early this year, because there is a good chance what we saw is exactly what we’ll get. According to several several sites, recent images filed by Honda from China’s patent office show an identical design to the NSX Concept. The Acura grille remains in place, as the new NSX will be branded and sold in China with Acura badging.

Whether or not the Chinese patent images are legitimate,  this past week there have also been rumors spreading that a “production” NSX will be revealed at the upcoming 2013 North American International Auto Show in January, and that the styling will stay true to the Concept.

The next-generation NSX is expected to go on sale within three years, likely as a 2015 model.

Gallery: Acura China’s 2013 RDX

Acura China's 2013 RDX - Basque Red Pearl

The new formula for the 2013 Acura RDX seems to be working well in North America having posted record sales for the last few months. This year the RDX will also take a crack at the Chinese market as it joins Acura’s lineup as the new entry-level crossover.

Take a closer look at the Chinese RDX in this gallery from automotive site xgo.com.cn. You might notice the Basque Red Pearl RDX is decked out with OEM accessories available here in North America: Roof Rail, Cross Bars, 18” wheels, and Sport Running boards. But, like most Chinese-spec Acuras, there are some subtle exterior differences. The front headlights get clear corners and are accompanied by headlight washers. In the rear, the missing amber from the front headlights seem to have found its way into the tail lights. Also on the rear bumper there appears to be parking sensors and a fog light(thanks junior) centered between the two lower reflectors.

Check out the photos below and let me know if I’ve missed anything.

Acura recently announced that the upcoming 2013 ZDX will get a few changes, including some exterior styling updates, new technology, and some pricing adjustments. Having spent some quality time with the 2012 model this past winter season, I can honestly say I’m a huge fan and I look forward to seeing what the refresh brings.

The updated 2013 ZDX is expected to go on sale October 2012, until then enjoy July’s desktop wallpaper featuring the current ZDX from Acura China.
