Acura's aging lineup has undergone a radical transformation, and there's more to come. Over just the past year, the TLX midsize sedan and MDX three-row crossover were put on all-new platforms with fresh interior and exterior styling.
Up next are a replacement to the ILX compact sedan and the introduction of the brand's first electric vehicle — a crossover of undisclosed size being developed with General Motors. Acura is also working to keep its NSX supercar fresh by adding new features and colors.
ILX: The compact sedan continues selling well despite its age, relative to rivals. The ILX is still in its first generation, introduced for the 2013 model year, although it received a fairly heavy freshen for the 2019 model. Acura is working on a new compact sedan to replace the ILX, according to a leaked dealer presentation that suggests it could get a different name. Acura is committed to its current three-letter naming scheme, so the new sedan could come as an RSX or TSX, which are names used on past Acuras. The new sedan is expected in 2022. A freshen should come in 2025. Acura has also confirmed a sporty Type S trim for the coming compact.
