With a new flagship supercar planned in the NSX Concept, Acura also unveiled a new entry-level model at the Detroit Auto Show this week. Called the ILX, it’s based on the new Honda Civic platform, but significantly modified. It also gets some distinct bodywork and three unique engine choices, including a hybrid option – the first time ever for an Acura.

    I used to love Acura's in the mid 80's and 90's but my 2000RL will be the last until Acura starts making some good cars again with styling to match.By the way Cadillac has it going on!!!

    Boring. Why another 4 door? Who is the target audience? And what about that promo article referencing the new front end. "Newish Nose". Gentlemen, it's 2012!
