Report: ILX Coupe is not in the cards; Earth Dreams 4-cylinder may replace ILX 2.0L

Report is sourced from Automotive News (subscription required) via Motor Trend.

Criticism that the base 2.0-liter engine is underpowered may lead to a mid-cycle swap-out for the 2.4-liter, 181-hp Earth Dreams engine, or an automatic transmission for the 200-hp 2.4-liter from the Civic Si. Company sources say, in response to rumors on the Internet, that there are no plans for a coupe variant.

No coupe variant of the Acura ILX is on the way, but an Earth Dreams four-cylinder engine replacing the volume 2.0-liter ILX is a distinct possibility for the car's refresh. Depending on the ILX's sales performance, the Acura TSX could become a much lower-volume model. The report mentions the possibility of the TSX continuing as a limited-production V-6 model to remain between the ILX and TL.
