Acura is refreshing its current US range with the introduction of the 2015 ILX. The new version of the Japanese sedan comes with few aesthetic changes, replacing the old Polished Metallic Paint with the new Modern Steel metalic color.
There are also modest changes inside, where the plastics will be different. Important changes under the hood, where the ILX Hybrid disappeared. Acura motivates its action as the most clients considered the eco friendly version being underpowered.
We remind you that the ILX Hybrid used a 1.5 liter four-cylinder engine combined with an electric motor and a 144 volt lithium-ion battery. It offered only 111 hp and 172 Nm, a little to less for US standards.
The engine will be replaced by a new entry-level version, powered by a 2.0 liter petrol engine, delivering50 hp and 190 Nm. The prices for the 2015 Acura ILX will start from 27.050 USD.
