2021 Acura ILX: Redesign Info & Release Date

Alex Bernstein
Senior Pricing Analyst - February 11, 2020

Redesign Info

The Acura ILX isn’t expected to arrive until at least the 2021 model year. The current car was last updated with a refresh for 2019 that introduced a new A-Spec trim with sportier styling, plus a diamond-shaped grille up front to match the rest of the Acura lineup.

While Acura’s SUVs have been considerably more popular by comparison, the brand hasn’t given up on passenger cars just yet. Last year, Acura debuted the Type S Concept featuring noticeably sharper lines and a bolder stance compared to past Acura sedans.

Engine specs for the next ILX remain a mystery, although we think it’s likely that the car may employ turbocharging like the Honda Civic to achieve peppier performance and better fuel economy. The current ILX comes with a 2.4-liter naturally-aspirated engine making 201 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque, while a 1.5-liter turbo in the Civic produces 180 hp with up to 35 mpg on the highway. Will the next ILX offer a new level of performance? That remains to be seen.

Release Date

Acura has not yet announced a release date for the next ILX. Having said that, our records indicate that the model typically begins arriving at dealers in the fall. If that proves to once again be the case, we think it’s reasonable to expect an on-sale date sometime in the fall of 2020. This page will be updated as information becomes available.

Now that the Buick Regal is slated to be discontinued, there are very few direct competitors to the ILX when it comes to price. The closest rivals currently include the Audi A3 and Mercedes-Benz A-Class.
