To make the new 2018 ILX more attractive, Acura decided to launch a special edition which includes  18-inch wheels, side sills and a rear spoiler from the A-Spec package. The new model is called A-Spec Sport Appearance Trim and features sporty side sill garnishes, a decklid spoiler, front fog lights, 18-inch 10-spoke machined alloy wheels, and exterior A-Spec badging in three locations: left and right front fenders and trunk lid. 

Inside, A-Spec trims enhance the cabin appeal with an exclusive Premium Black interior color scheme including a black headliner, perforated black Lux Suede seat inserts, red instrument illumination, exclusive gray interior stitching and aluminum brake and throttle pedals.
