Ehhhh. They sorta over done under doing it the first time and now they just threw odd shapes at the rear.

I will say the wheels are better and wheel gap is much much better (though likely accessory wheels are shown). I'm sure the front is great in contrast to the rear.

Overall improvement. Not sure what is under the hood, but overall, better.

It looks like they hid the exhaust outlets, again.

Looks pretty good considering the terrible stance on the Civic. If I was in the market for a car this sized, this thing would definitely be on the radar. Too bad about the corny Acura taglines though, particularly when the products don't meet the expectations set out by the tagline.

Interesting! It looks like the chipmunk cheeks of the Civic coupe found their way to the lower rear bumper of the ILX.

I think "Sport Pkg" would be better than A-spec.

Good to see. It's apparently also getting an A-Spec package. It's only cosmetic stuff, but still.

Oh, and the manual is dead.

Yup. Cross another Acura product off the shopping list.

I like what the A-Spec package offers. I am a big fan of all black interior (headliner, pillars, etc.) Love the suede+leather combo as well.

I wish they updated the interior, but it is only a refresh so I don't blame them.

Bummed there is no manual, but at least it isn't a CVT! The 201 with the DCT in this small car will be quick!

Turn signal indicators are neat, unless they are just for show, but they come on after the guy gets out the car in the video.

You're right, Acura really doesn't care about driving enthusiasts at all. Sucks doesn't it?

aspec looks nice, loving the new grille design! jewel eyes look nice too and its something different. tech being up to date is a plus too.

8DCT + 2.4 in ILX will really make this a quick car. That blue colour is really attractive and reminds me of the ABP from the first gen tsx which is a good thing.

Wheels are meh not a fan of multispoke on the ASPEC but easily fixed in the aftermarket.

overall im really liking the car in ASPEC guise.

Wow, huge improvement in styling and finishing details. What the ILX should have been when it first came out.... Wish it had turn signal indicators on the side mirrors but I guess the new light pipes make it looks pretty nice as shown in the video above....

Interesting that the ILX also has an LED strip alongside the Jewel Eye LED headlamps... first Acura to have that I think...

Best iteration of the Jewel Eye so far! IMO. Looks very sporty

Looks a bit more polished than before but is it enough? The competition (A3/CLA) is fierce and will only get more competitive with updates. New competitors like the FWD base 1 Series sedan just add to the ILX's list of challenges. I hope this MMC is enough to hold it over until the next generation.

Sorry, I was trying to quote this message. But yeah, Osaka, you can see it too, that Acura doesn't care about offering engaging drivers cars anymore. Of course they will not lose any sleep, all these boring vehicles they have surrounding them would put me right out cold as well.

Yes, maybe so, but I bet this re-do just doubled their ILX sales, if not more.

New colors for the ILX: Catalina Blue Pearl, Silver Slate, Graphite Luster - maybe more are coming but the blue is nice.

Yup, there's no ambiguity anymore, Acura is making it very clear, they no longer have any interest in attempting to offer anything for the enthusiast driver, no manual being offered on any trim for any vehicle, and a-spec is just some slapped on cosmetic changes, not even including a simple change to a "sport suspension package"

This new power train should make it the quickest 4 cyl Honda / Acura ever sold in the US. In a straight line, anyway. Maybe even a sub 6 second 0-60...
