The Acura ILX 1st Generation is a subcompact executive car produced by Honda's luxury brand Acura. All ILX variants are based upon the ninth-generation Civic Sedan. The ILX became Acura's first compact model in the United States since the RSX was discontinued after the 2006 model year, and their first compact sedan in the United States since the Integra was last produced in 2001. The ILX was also Acura's first gasoline-electric hybrid vehicle. In September of 2018, Acura revealed another facelift for the ILX. This time, the entire exterior has been redone. The ILX follows Acura's new design language, and incorporates the company's new "Diamond Pentagon" grille. The new jewel-eye headlights are more sleek and so is the new front bumper. In the rear of the ILX, the taillights are now more angular, and the license plate has been dropped from the trunk, to the rear bumper of the ILX. Stepping into the interior, the overall design has remained the same. Although, they are new seats, with the availability of red leather (only on the A-Spec), and an updated infotainment system. It is still the same system as before, but it is 30% faster. AcuraWatch is now standard on all ILX's. The powertrain has remained the same for 2019. The A-Spec now makes the exterior look more aggressive. It comes with 18" Wheels, Red or Black leather seats with ultrasuade inserts, aluminum pedals, and more.
