Wednesday, October 19th 2016. | Acura

Back to Detroit Auto Show in 2016, we could say that Acura ILX was one of new cars which impressed public even better than the four-door Precision Concept Acura could introduce. It came out with long wheelbase and low-slung stance just like the concept. Many of us expected that the concept could be the base for its upcoming models. It is no wonder that right now there are so many people started anticipating the coming of 2018 Acura ILX which will keep the current design. It should compete with other compact-sized of luxury cars. Its initial debut was started in 2013 as 2012 model and this was a first compact car that Acura could present after spending about 7 years. In fact, this new car is the first model with hybrid engine.

The ongoing reports mentioned that 2018 ILX will get a total redesign after a long time we didn’t see it. Although the exact details are totally hard to get unveiled, it is still predictable for its possible changes. Thankfully, Honda just released the Precision Concept that will be the base for this upcoming car. It is no surprise that some elements on the concept will be used for this car. We expect that they don’t remove the basic characteristics for this car. In addition, it will also borrow some components and features from Civic. It can be designed with the same platform that will lead to some good changes such as lightweight bodywork.

The shared platform might change the cabin too. It will be more spacious than before. Many report strongly suggested 2018 Acura ILX to get a complete redesign. It would be good if the company will use new styling cues for its more advanced technology features. They also have big concern for its ultimate comfort.

The current engine is 2.4 liter and four-cylinder engine but we wouldn’t see this one for future. 2018 Acura ILX likely will receive the 2.0 liter and inline-four that is basically the same as Honda Civic. By using this engine, it is capable to generate the amount of output about 240 hp. The power will be sent to the new eight-speed auto transmission.

Release Date and Price

2018 Acura ILX is still hard to predict for its release and price. Only some reports mentioned that it should be ready in the late of 2017 or it can be in 2018 for any delay. Rumors suggested that the cost shouldn’t be more than $30,000 for the base.
