Unveiled back in late 2014 at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the facelifted 2016 Acura ILX will arrive at the dealerships later this year looking and feeling as if it is the next-generation model even though still being in its first generation.

For 2016 model year, the ILX will no longer be available with the smaller 2.0-L engine, instead all the models in the 2016 ILX will be powered by one type of engine – the 2.4-L that was only available on the ILX with manual transmission.  The engine cranks out 201 horsepower at 6,800 rpm and 180 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,600 rpm.

Acura didn’t specify the reason why they decided to use one big engine for all the models.  It could be the bigger engine works better with the new transmission.  For 2016, both 5-speed automatic transmission that used to go together with the 2.0-L engine and the 6-speed manual transmission that was mated with the bigger 2.4-L have been replaced by Acura’s new 8-speed dual-clutch transmission which, according to Acura, “delivers “incredibly quick, crisp and intuitive gear changes”, allowing the ILX to achieve “smoother and more powerful” launch.

Style-wise, the 2016 Acura ILX gets multiple styling upgrades inside out. On the outside, the 2016 ILX’s front is restyled with a sportier bumper, grilles, and Jewel Eye LED headlights. The rear fascia also looks different with new taillights.  The car also rides on a new restyled set of 17-inch, 10-spoke alloy wheels.

Changes continue into the inside with noticeable stitching on various parts including steering wheel, parking brake handle and shift knob.  Cabin quietness is improved thanks to added noise-insulating materials, a thicker front-side door glass, noise attenuating wheels, and the addition of Active Noise Control technology.
