    Acura ILX Coupe Unlikely to be Built


    Those hoping that Acura will produce an ILX coupe variant may be in for some disappointment.

    Sluggish sales of the ILX sedan mean that a coupe variant is highly unlikely despite what Acura fans may be clamoring for. The ILX sedan is selling slowly and the Japanese automaker has reduced production and shifted it over to the Honda Civic, which is built at the same plant as the ILX.

    It’s unfortunate considering Acura hasn’t had a sporty coupe since the RSX was discontinued in 2006. Though the RSX wasn’t as big of a success as the Integra, it was still part of the automaker’s lineup to give it variety. And of course, there’s the Acura Integra Type-R that has grown even more infamous over the years due to its rarity and performance capability.

    It almost seems that Acura is overdue for a sporty coupe, but unfortunately, it won’t be the ILX.

    I think we all knew this was happening. Honda doesn't seem interested in producing coupes for now, aside from the Acura NSX and the rumored mini-nsx. Previous Acura luxury coupes didn't do so well. specifically the CL coupes.

    Current Civic Si coupes are just too nice for me to ever want a heavier version with leather and typical acura stuff.
