Acura ILX and NSX to be Discontinued for 2023  

Acura has announced that the ILX and NSX will be discontinued after the 2023 model year. Instead, the decision was made to focus on new and upcoming models. The NSX has been in production since 2016, while the ILX was introduced in 2013. Both models have been met with mixed reviews, with the NSX praised for its performance, and the ILX criticized for its high price tag and lack of features.

Saying Goodbye to the IXL and NSX

Acura ILX

The ILX compact luxury sedan is being discontinued after the 2023 model year. While it is not an official replacement, the new 2023 Integra will be the entry point into the Acura lineup. It is a sportier model. The original Acura Integra was a stylish two-door coupe popular with young buyers. It was offered in standard and Type-R trim levels and was known for its sharp handling and impressive performance.

The new Integra will be a four-door sedan that will compete with the Audi A3 and the BMW 2 Series. A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine will power it. It will be available with a six-speed manual or a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Acura NSX

The NSX wasn't as fast as a Ferrari or luxurious as a Lamborghini. Still, it blended the two uniquely and appealingly.

It's a shame to see it go, but it's not entirely surprising. The NSX has been on the market for a while now, and it's starting to show its age. So Honda is probably betting they can make more money by focusing on new projects rather than updating older ones.

Still, it's a shame it has to go. The NSX was a landmark car for Acura, and We will miss it.

The advanced hybrid speedster brought back for 2017 is the two-seater Type S. It's bowing out with a limited-production model that produces a brisk 600 horsepower.

While you might think it is terrible news for the automaker, this decision has some significant benefits.

First and foremost, it allows Acura to focus on developing new and more exciting vehicles. The ILX and NSX were aging models, and it was time for a change. By focusing on new models, Acura can stay ahead of the curve and keep up with the competition.

Another significant advantage is that it frees up resources they can put toward other projects. For example, with the ILX and NSX no longer in production, Acura can allocate those resources elsewhere, such as developing new technologies or expanding its sales operations.

Overall, the discontinuation of the ILX and NSX is a positive move for Acura.
