If you see the image of the new 2018 Acura ILX, you will agree that this ride is definitely a handsome ride that won’t disappoint you. Besides the good looking and the sleek design, you can see all the muscles and the hidden power covered in the sleek curves and lines of the ride. Ready to know more about the compact premium package?
The first ILX was launched in 2012 and it was the first ever Acura with compact design and hybrid technology. Because of the design and the performance, it is considered a luxury compact with elegant lines, top notch trim and comfort, and also an impressive performance. And with the upcoming release of the 2018 model, rumor has it that the new 2018 Acura ILX will be coming with Precision concept which means that you can expect a greater refreshment for the new vehicle.
Price and Release Date
If everything goes as planned, the new 2018 Acura ILX will be set for the public introduction at the end of 2017. However, a lot of people have predicted that it is most likely that it will happen at the beginning of 2018 so we should wait and see. Although there hasn’t been any official confirmation about the price, it is predicted that the base trim will start from below $30,000 while the higher end trim will reach around $35,000. We don’t know more until we get the official release from the company.
So, what’s going on with the redesign plan, after all? There have been two versions of it. First of all, rumor has it that there won’t be any major updates, just a minor grille redesign or the LED headlights. But the other rumor says that the new ILX will be coming with a completely new style and design. To be honest, it should fall in between – for a better outcome, really.
It is possible that the new ILX will be coming with smaller engine. The I4 turbocharged 2.0 liter engine will be replacing the four cylinder 2.4 liter engine but with a better boost of power – around 240 bhp paired with automatic eight speed transmission.
All in all, we should wait and see for the upcoming refreshment features from the new ILX. Hopefully the new 2018 Acura ILX won’t disappoint and it will be as good as promised.
