The Acura ILX is Dead. Long Live the Integra

ILX makes way for reborn Acura Integra

  • Acura confirms ILX no more after MY 2022

  • Compact sedan will be replaced by new Integra hatch


It’s not much of a surprise, but the Acura ILX is dead after 2022. The entry-level Acura sedan is being replaced by the 2023 Acura Integra, though really the whole thing is largely a rebranding rather than a replacement.

“The 2022 model year is the final model year for the ILX, in anticipation of the new Integra,” an Acura spokesperson told Motor1. They added that “the new Integra was developed from day 1 to deliver on the original lineage that began with Integra back in 1986. It is a continuation of that formula that brought so many first-time buyers into the Acura family and will be the new entry point to the brand.”

The Acura ILX arrived in 2013, the first compact from the brand in Canada since the end of the CSX in 2012. For the U.S. market, it was the first since Acura discontinued the Integra way back in 2002.

Acura’s ILX was based on the ninth-generation Honda Civic sedan, though it shared no bodywork or interior components. The Civic is currently in its 11th generation, showing just how long the ILX had been on the market with little more than a facelift.

The automaker will start taking orders for the 2023 Acura Integra starting March 10th. Based on the 11th-generation Civic, it should offer a much more modern driving experience and improved passenger comfort. Still, some may miss the 2.4L naturally-aspirated four-cylinder, one of Honda’s last high-revving NA small motors, which will be replaced by a 1.5L turbo-four in the Integra.
