This should be interesting.............but they need to make sure that the top-end variant is not stick only.

Automatic or CVT please

A lot of MDX design elements, but suprisingly good looking sedan.

Default 2013 Acura ILX Revealed in Production Form

However, the production lines remain true, minus some of the chrome showy bits from the concept.

Motivation will be provided by either a 150-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder working through a five-speed automatic, a 201-hp, 2.4-liter with a six-speed manual, or the first Acura hybrid with a 111-hp, 1.5-liter four-cylinder getting help from Integrated Motor Assist and a CVT, good for fuel economy estimates of 35/38 miles per gallon, city/highway. Follow the jump for a press release with more information, and look out for live pics from our team at the Chicago Auto Show.

Love the interior, exterior is not so much. Not offensive other model but a bland. This will be lost in a crowd exterior wise

Is this an April Fools joke?
201hp from Civic Si...Acura TSX had that 8 years ago
150hp volume model gets 24/32 MPG? That cannot be correct.
111hp hybrid? That gets Mid 35 MPG? When everyone else has jumped to the 40s?

Looks like a last gen Mazda 3 with a beak. Built in Ohio to boot.


And Paul, now that is serious wheel gap

I cannot believe this is their plan for success and this replaces the TSX. Talk about setting the bar low.

The list below is cars a level or two above the ILX, all more powerful with better MPG with auto or manual. The 111hp ILX hybrid makes the MPG of a 185hp HS 250h which is not the pinnacle of hybrids. WTF? The 138hp CT makes 42 MPG and the 200hp new Camry hybrid makes 43 MPG.

I like the exterior very much. I think there was another thread about this car recently and we all thought it look like the IS in the rear

It's really an entirely different car. ISX is based on the Civic, TSX was on the Euro Accord.

EL/CSX was a Canadian only model. Both were Civics re badged as Acuras and no longer exist.

TSX seems to be discontinued. Supposedly the Euro and US Accord lines will merge to one car, hence no place for a TSX.

Sedan picture for the future looks like ISX, TL, and new RL/flagship.
