Acura will stop selling the ILX after the 2022 model year. As a result, there will not be a 2023 Acura ILX here in the United States. Fortunately, entry-level luxury car buyers will have a new choice to consider in the form of the 2023 Acura Integra, a new four-door, coupe-like sedan comparable to a Honda Civic Si.
The first ILX generation debuted in 2013 and saw minor changes over the years. The most significant one came with the restyled 2019 Acura ILX, which adopted a new front grille akin to the larger TLX. Now that the ILX is being discontinued, car buyers will have a choice between the reborn Integra and the TLX.
In terms of price, the current ILX starts at just $28,345 including destination, making it one of the few premium cars you can buy under $30,000. At that price, the ILX is a little over $10,000 cheaper than TLX pricing. Whether or not the new Integra will bridge that gap with a price increase remains an open question.
If you're in the market to buy an ILX, you may want to act fast. Dealers tend not to stock the small sedan in large numbers and finding one can be challenging. The new Integra is set to go on sale this spring. Like the ILX, early criticisms of the 2023 Integra have drawn comparisons to the redesigned Honda Civic Si.
