2016 Acura ILX rump teased ahead of LA Auto Show 2014 reveal

Acura has given the world a sneak peak at the rear of the facelifted ILX, which will debut at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, as a 2016 model year car.

It’s fair to say that the Civic-based Acura ILX hasn’t really been the sales or critical success that Acura had hoped, but Honda’s upscale marque is persisting with its small car.

To wit, Acura will unveil an updated version of the ILX at the LA Auto Show, which takes place in the latter half of November. The 2016 model year model is said to feature a “potent new powertrain … and substantially upgraded interior design”.

From the image supplied by Acura, the revised ILX’s “more forceful, sporty exterior styling” will include new alloy wheels and a reworked tail-light design. Although the shape of the tail-light cluster seems to be unchanged, they do seem to feature new LED lighting elements and a clear/smoked finish for at the least indictors.
