A New Design for the 2018 Acura RLX
February 21 2018, Acura Sherway
There were already a thousand and one reasons to love the Acura RLX, but now Acura’s most refined and prestigious sedan gets even better. With a stunning new design and wide range of other improvements, the 2018 Acura RLX will certainly turn even more heads while giving its owners even more of what they expect from Acura’s top-of-the-line model.
With its redesigned headlights and a new grille that is much more aggressive than before, the Acura RLX is now sharper, and packed with personality. In addition to being an example of power and luxury in the automotive industry, the RLX now makes an even more impactful statement out on the road.
The 2018 Acura RLX Shares the DNA of an Exotic Car
It's not just the design of the 2018 Acura RLX that inspires performance. Under its hood is a state-of-the-art hybrid engine. Paired with three electric motors, the RLX's 3.5-litre i-VTEC V6 engine delivers 377 horsepower. And since two of the three electric motors are located towards the rear wheels, the Acura RLX is an AWD vehicle with all the advantages that come with it, particularly in winter.
Unique to the Acura brand, this sporty engine is directly inspired by the superb NSX, a hybrid high performance exotic that is one of the most advanced vehicles on the road today. Thanks to this technology, the 2018 Acura RLX promises exemplary road handling, all the passing power you could ever want, and impressive fuel economy. The power is sent to all four wheels through a dual-clutch 7-speed automatic transmission.
Safety is Paramount in the 2018 Acura RLX
Performance is one thing, but full-size luxury sedan buyers also want the latest and greatest safety features as well. That’s what you get with Acura’s AcuraWatch system which comes standard on the new RLX.
Consisting of several driving assistance technologies such as forward collision alert with automatic braking, lane departure warning and prevention, adaptive cruise control, and a lot more, AcuraWatch looks after you at all times. For 2018, the RLX adds a new function that will assist you with driving in traffic. That’s a first for Acura.
