2013 Acura ILX - Honda Motor Co. is shaking off a really shitty 2011 year. Poor sales mixed with Momma nature on the rag and no money anywhere leaves the company’s overall sales figures down. In order to boost up sales they took my advice as I called them and told them to remove that ugly grill style, then they hung up on me. So Acura is trying to go with a now smaller global grill just like their Alfa Romeo, or Bugatti. I personally don’t understand it or like the style and I am a diehard Honda/Acura guy who has owned three of them. I do think the 2013 Acura ILX looks better than the TL, RL and especially the ZDX though.
So as they continue on with the ultra contemporary styling they are introducing a Honda Civic based entry level Acura that will be the first 2013 Acura Hybrid. The 2013 Acura ILX is a little longer and wider than the Civic but should get up to 39/40 MPG’s like the Civic. The 2013 Acura ILX is supposed to be priced just a few thousand above a comparable Civic as well.
The engine for the 2013 Acura ILX is going to be of thrice choices.
2013 Acura ILX – 2.0 Liter I4 with 5 speed auto and flappy paddles and 140 HP
2013 Acura ILX-S – 2.4 Liter I4 with 6 speed robot penis (manual) hopefully they can deliver 240 Horsies as that would make this a fun car to drive especially if they use the SH-front dif. But instead it will offer 201 HP and no SH dif.
2013 Acura ILX Hybrid – 1.5 Liter I4 with CVT tranny and should deliver 43 MPGs
