Performance

Under the hood sits a proven V-6 engine, which churns out a potent 310 horsepower. A new 10-speed transmission gives the RLX an additional fun factor. The sedan’s quick acceleration and reassuring handling are destined to keep you engaged. Acura’s responsive All-Wheel Steer system inspires everyone with a great deal of confidence. If you are looking for even more driving excitement, check out the new Sport Hybrid model. Featuring several race-bred technologies derived from Acura’s NSX sports car, the 377-horsepower RLX Sport Hybrid promises to get your adrenaline pumping. As always, bulletproof reliability helps set the RLX apart from the competition.

Interior

Count on the 2018 Acura RLX to offer a luxurious driving experience. Heated and ventilated leather seats reward you with a high level of comfort. Class-leading interior space makes the RLX an especially rewarding family vehicle. Acura also decided to revamp the cabin’s styling. Not only does the RLX’s new electronic gear shifter help provide a more modern look, but it also eliminates wasted space. As expected, a number of premium components are available. Featuring smartphone integration, Acura’s dual-screen infotainment system enables you to quickly locate your favorite apps. A GPS-linked climate control system comes standard as well. Music fans will definitely love the 14-speaker ELS Studio sound system.

Safety

Acura engineered the new RLX to provide superior impact protection. Several advanced safety innovations are available. While the standard backup camera works well, the optional 360-degree parking camera further enhances your visibility in congested areas. For 2018, Acura introduces a new Traffic Jam Assist feature. It works in harmony with the adaptive cruise control system to keep you at a safe following distance. When approaching a stopped vehicle, the automatic emergency braking system will immediately take control if you fail to react. Road Departure Mitigation and lane-keep assist are also included in the AcuraWatch safety suite.
