Model Preview

Though it hasn’t been through a full redesign since hitting the market in 2013, the Acura ILX went through a significant refresh in 2019. The 2019 ILX gained new front and rear ends, a revised interior, new packages, and more. With all these changes still fresh, we expect the 2020 Acura ILX to roll in unchanged.

The refreshed Acura ILX boasts new front and rear ends inspired by the Acura Precision Concept. Up front, there are new fenders, hood, Diamond Pentagon Hood, and seven-element Jewel Eye LED headlights. In the rear, the Precision Concept cues continue with a new trunk lid, updated fascia, revised taillights, and a new lower diffuser with exposed exhaust outlets. With this design still fresh, we expect it the 2020 Acura ILX to arrive with the same look.

Inside, this refresh brought only small changes to the 2019 ILX. These updates included slightly modified front and rear seats, new high-contrast piping and stitching, and upgraded silver-finish dash trim. We expect no changes inside the 2020 ILX.

With no changes coming, we also expect the ILX’s long list of standard features to remain the same in 2020. If this proves true, the 2020 ILX will come standard with leatherette sport seats, eight-way power front seats with heat, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless ignition, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, a six-speaker audio system, a 5-inch display, and more.

Under its hood, we also expect the 2020 Acura ILX to continue with a standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that will produce 201 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. We also expect its standard eight-speed dual-clutch transmission to remain the only cogswapper available. Front-wheel drive will also remain the only driveline setup.

The 2019 Acura ILX aced all the IIHS crash tests and even earned a “Superior” rating in the front-crash prevention test thanks to its standard automatic emergency braking. Despite these great ratings, it still missed on being an IIHS Top Safety Pick due to its “Poor” headlight tests. With no structural changes coming, we expect these ratings to carry into the 2020 ILX unchanged.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official release date set for the 2020 Acura ILX, but we expect to see it in late-fall 2019.

Pricing is not set yet, but we don’t expect a big swing from the current model’s MSRP range of $26,895 to $32,545 (destination fees included).

The 2020 Acura ILX will compete with the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, Audi A3 and Buick Regal.
