Honda has officially kicked off production of the all-new 2013 Acura ILX compact sedan at its plant in Indiana." Acura has a sparkling reputation and we are thrilled to build the gateway vehicle to this brand at our Greensburg facility," said Jun Nishimoto, president of Honda Manufacturing of Indiana. "As the exclusive builder of the ILX, HMIN has a big responsibility. Our associates meet this challenge by working together as one team and today we are ready for our customers to share our pride in this beautiful new product."
The 2013 Acura ILX will be available next month with a starting price that is set at $25,900. Acura's new entry-level model will be available in three versions: the 150-horsepower 2.0L model, a 201-horsepower 2.4L model and the ILX hybrid with a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine.
"This all-new Acura luxury sedan is closely linked to the future of Acura," said Jeff Conrad, vice president and general manager of Acura for American Honda. "Just as the Acura ILX is the gateway to the Acura brand, Honda Manufacturing of Indiana is a gateway to Acura customers."
