2017 Acura ILX Type S
The ILX is a compact luxury sedan which came in 2012 as all-new model. It is the first compact model of Honda’s luxury division since CSX, which was discontinued in 2006. After few years of production, refreshed model was presented at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show and went on sale this February as 2016 year model. If you consider that next-generation model could come already in 2018, it seems logical that we won’t see any changes until redesigned model come. However, company will probably decide to release new, high-performance version, which will come as 2017 Acura ILX Type S.
2017 Acura ILX Type S specs
It is expected that 2017 Acura ILX Type S will be based on the refreshed model that came recently. This model came with several changes such as new front fascia, which includes new “Jewel Eye” headlights, similar to those that can be found on models like RLX, MDX etc. It also came with new A-spec trim level, which features sportier appearance, both outside and inside the car. When it is about 2017 ILX Type S, it will come with one big change compared to refreshed model. It is a new engine. This version will be powered with 2.0 liter turbocharged engine, same that is used for Civic Type R. This engine should be offered with either 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic transmission and it should have maximum output of more than 300 horses.
When it is about other changes, we don’t expect to see too much, since this model was redesigned just recently. The basic look should remain pretty much the same and only some cosmetic changes are expected. The 2017 Acura ILX will probably come with some “Type S” badges or new color details. On the other side, changes like modified bumper or similar things that will emphasize cars sporty character aren’t expect because it is hard to believe that company will make some body modifications only year after mid-cycle refresh.
2017 Acura ILX Type S release date
This model isn’t confirmed yet so it is hard to tell something more about release date and price. We can only presume that 2017 Acura ILX Type S will come somewhere in late 2016/early 2017 period.
