The first new 2016 ILX has rolled off the assembly line at the Marysville Auto Plant in Ohio, marking not just the launch of the Honda Civic sibling but also a manufacturing milestone for the company. The Acura brand is celebrating sales in the U.S. of the 2 millionth North American-made Acura vehicle, 20 years after Acura production began in the U.S.
Pricing on the 2016 ILX will be announced later, said Honda spokeswoman Jessica Fini in response to a query.
All 2016 ILX models feature a 201-horsepower 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder engine paired with an eight-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission.
On the outside, the ILX gets a mild face-lift with a new grille, front and rear fascias, headlights and taillights. The cabin gets improved materials and an optional secondary infotainment screen.
Edmunds says: Car shoppers in this popular category will soon be able to get up-close-and-personal with the 2016 Acura ILX at their local Acura showroom.
