2022 Acura ILX

The company’s smallest compact sedan rolls into another year without any noticeable upgrades.

Since the 2013 model year, the ILX has come a long way without the need of introducing a new generation. But the 2022 model year is just as same as the2019 facelift which makes no sense. However, it is the cheapest Acura to wear its expensive badging and in our opinion, it is still a good-looking car. So what might be the things that could have been better?

With 355 Horsepower, the 2021 Acura TLX Type-S Will Be a Strong Competitor

When Acura revealed the2021 TLX luxury sports sedan, we came right out and said that BMW and Mercedes should worry about it. In fact, you could even argue that Cadillac and Audi should worry too, despite the fact that the former is abandoning fuel-driven performance for a new naming structure and all-electric future. Well, Acura has added even more evidence that certain brands should worry with news that the 2021 Acura TLX Type-S will feature a pure-driven V-6 heart that’s good for 355 horsepower.

The Future of Acura Relies Heavily On Its Past, And That’s a Very Good Thing

Acura hit the market hard when it introduced the Integra, Legend, and first-generation NSX. The late 1980s and the 1990s represented a time when Acura was about little more than producing performance cars that looked good and felt comfortable. By the time the 2000s hit, however, the company fell into a funk that, at one time, could have pushed the company to the brink of destruction.

We’re here to tell you that it’s a very good thing, and the company is already several steps into its new master plan.

It comes with a new high-performance V-6 engine

Introduced in 2014 as a replacement for both the TL and the TSX, the TLX is Acura’s answer to the highly popular BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and Audi A4. But even though it was well-received in the U.S., it never managed to outsell its competitors. Acura is now looking to improve on that with the second-generation TLX, and based on its looks, technology, and power, Honda’s premium division should finally give BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi a run for their money.
