The new 2022 Acura ILX should be available to purchase next year. From the information that we got, Acura is ready to make drastic changes to the upcoming model. As you probably know, the current sedan was last year updated and the manufacturer introduced a new A-Spec trim. This trim becomes one of the favorites in a quick time. It includes sportier styling, plus a diamond-shaped grille to match the rest of the Acura lineup.
This luxury sedan offers a good value for invested money. Besides, it comes with a beautiful design and even luxurious cabin that many of the rivals doesn’t have.
2022 Acura ILX Will Come With Completely New Design
We don’t know much about 2022 Acura ILX design. From what we heard, this model will feature a new grille. This means that the familiar Diamond Pentagon grille will not adore this model anymore. Last year’s makeover made this model very competitive. The manufacturer basically added plenty of updates on the front fascia.
However, because the A-Spec trim is still fresh, we can expect the same treatment on the new one. The models that wear this trim gives a sportier look thanks to exclusive 18-inch wheels, dark chrome grille, gloss-black decklid spoiler, and darkened exterior bits like the headlights and taillights. Moreover, expect the new 2022 model to bring noticeably sharper lines and a bolder stance compared to past Acura sedans.
The upcoming 2022 Acura ILX is a 5-passenger sedan that will provide a luxurious design. Like before one of the highlights of this model is comfortable and well-bolstered front seats, excellent driving position, and vast customizations. We must also mention that ILX comes with impressive color choices that include Ebony, Espresso, and Ebony-and-Red on sporty ILX A-Spec variants.
Furthermore, we got information that base models will get a new infotainment system of an 8-inch screen. If you remember, this screen until now has been part of premium trim. Other standard features will include Apple or Android phones, a two-zone climate, a better audio system, and so on.
2022 Acura ILX Powertrain Specs
The newest 2022 Acura ILX from many speculations will be a carryover model. With that, we mean it will be powered by the same powertrain as the predecessor. Acura’s ILX compact-luxury sedan uses a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder powertrain that delivers 201 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque.
However, we think that some improvements might happen and that next Acura ILX will get an output boost. We also believe that the manufacturer will use the same 8-speed twin-clutch transmission. Unlike the models in the same class as Audi and Mercedes-Benz, the ILX is offered only with a front-wheel-drive system. The current model delivers EPA city/highway fuel economy of 24/34 mpg, which is very acceptable for such fascia. However, most likely that the new model will include a start/stop system that will significantly improve efficiency.
2022 Acura ILX Release Date and Cost
The upcoming 2022 Accura ILX will arrive with refreshed styling. Depending on the trim level and equipment, the price of a new model will vary. For example, the entry-level model that comes with the basics equipment will start at $27,000. However, stepping up to the recommended Premium trim price will jump to almost $29,000.
The most equipped Tech model crosses the $30K mark. Compared to models such as Audi A3 and Lexus IS, Mercedes-Benz A 220, and CLA-Class coupe, ILX’s resale values are better.
