First shown in concept form a month ago at the Detroit Auto Show, Acura has revealed its new entry-level ILX sports sedan at the Chicago Auto Show today.

Based on the Civic platform it certainly doesn't look it, though it does share some very familiar powertrains. With a base 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, there's also a 2.4-liter performance version and a 1.5-liter hybrid for the greenies.

Get all the details on the 2013 Acura ILX in our first look video below:

Acura did a much better job on the ILX than I expected. Didn't think they would make the ILX look this far off from the Civic. Cars that the ILX replace, Acura CSX & Acura EL look a lot like their Civic versions. This could be the next best selling compact luxury sedan!

They did do a great job on it, esp with the styling, this time they didnt make the 2 cars look 100% identical... for once...

Yup, impressed with this one. Can't even spot any Civic design features in it. But with the new 9th gen 2013 civic redesign on the way it could look closer to the ILX, and I hope it doesnt. It'll just make our ILX's seem cheaper.
