On October 12, Honda announced that it plans unveil a custom model of the 2016 Acura ILX at the 2015 SEMA Show in November.
The Acura ILX made its debut at the Chicago Motor Show in February, 2012, as a new entry model for its Acura brand based on the Civic. While the mechanisms were based on the Civic, it had its own original body design.
The 2016 ILX made its debut at the Los Angeles Motor Show in November, 2014. Now, two-and-a-half years later, it’s being presented with its first large-scale changes. The front grille and bumper design has been changed, giving it more consistency. The headlights are the same “Jewel Eye” jewel-like lights used for the latest Acura models. The rear tail lamps are also new.
Acura plans to bring out a customized model for SEMA. The customization was done by US company Galpin Auto Sports. According to Acura, major modifications have been made.
Acura has released one image taken from the side. Acura says, “We plan to inspire SEMA attendees with the custom ILX and a fully restored 2nd generation Legend.”
