2022 Acura ILX vs 2021 Acura ILX

Serving Memphis, TN

The current line of Acura sedans is outfitted with various beautiful options for you to consider, including the sporty ILX. This is a smaller, premium sedan that initially debuted in 2013. Now that you have your eye on a new ILX, you must know what changes it introduces in the latest model year. By comparing the 2021 Acura ILX to the 2022 version, you will not find any significant differences in features, abilities, or style. What does the ILX deliver to drivers who slide behind its leather-wrapped steering wheel?


The Acura ILX is available with the same three trim levels for 2021 and 2022, and all trims are outfitted with the same powertrain and transmission. Specifically, this is a four-cylinder, 2.4-liter engine that is connected to a dual-clutch eight-speed auto transmission. The pair produces 201 horsepower, and they are linked to a front-wheel drive drivetrain.


The Acura ILX has the same bold, athletic design for 2022 as its 2021 model year has. The ILX has a curvy, flowing profile with body-colored molding on the lower side doors from the side view. The rear has premium taillights and a spoiler. At the front, a pentagon-shaped grille angles outward to highlight the innovative LED headlights. These lights show off a line of bulbs, and the bulbs are accentuated by an LED light bar. The three-part design on the lower-front fascia completes the ILX’s sporty look.


You will find the same features in the 2022 version throughout the ILX’s trim lineup, as you may have appreciated in the 2021 version. Safety features include:

  • A lane departure alert with departure mitigation
  • Forward collision sensing with collision mitigation braking
  • Adaptive cruise control

The ILX’s lower trims come with equipment like simulated leather, a sunroof, a six-speaker sound system, heated seats in the front row, and Bluetooth connectivity. The top ILX trims for 2021 and 2022 have leather upholstery, a high-level sound system, HD and satellite radio, stainless-steel sports pedals, sport seats, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a blind-spot monitor, a rear cross-traffic warning, connected services, and a navigation system.
