The Precision Concept-inspired exterior design makes an undeniable performance statement. All-new LED Taillights, exposed dual exhaust and a gloss black rear diffuser make a sport statement. It's the second Acura sedan to adopt our signature Diamond Pentagon Grille, and the first Acura sedan to offer premium paint in Brilliant Red Metallic and Majestic Black Pearl. Shown: RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD in Silver Metallic, New Acura Signature Grille & Hood, Restyled Lower Body, Front & Rear Bumpers, 19" Wheels, Comprehensive LED Lighting.
A centerpiece of the RLX is the signature Diamond Pentagon grille. The bold shape with intricate detail results in a clean appearance that signals an uptick in attitude.
An all-new rear fascia includes a diffuser flanked by integrated Chrome exhaust outlets. Additional Chrome accents accompany taillights redesigned with LED "pipe" lighting for a distinctive signature when braking.
The 2018 RLX provides two new vivid color options. The paint process behind Brilliant Red Pearl and Majestic Black Pearl involves the use of successively tinted clear coats that result in a noticeably rich luster. Premium Paint +$400.
All RLX models sport 19-inch wheels. An exclusive design for P-AWS™ and Sport Hybrid SH-AWD® models, each feature a combination black paint and machined finish for a high-contrast appearance.
Bold new front styling is carried along the hood toward the rear with dramatic sweeping creases from the upper grill corners to the windshield pillars. A structural backbone is implied by the strong centerline.
The ultimate in personal space and comfort for driver and passenger.
A soft, double-hinged armrest enables easy storage access for both driver and front passenger. The illuminated center console also has a convenient sliding smartphone tray with easy access to USB and charging ports.
The restyled 2018 RLX seats state performance. Now available in four premium colors, each offers contrast stitching and piping as well as soft perforated Milano Leather that extends to the upper bolsters.
Tactile elements heighten the RLX experience. Wood-grain and metallic finishes complement each interior color with supple leather sweeping the cabin. Contrast stitching and illuminated storage round out the refinement.
An open, elegant space for the driver and front passenger is possible in part thanks to a minimally intrusive transverse engine layout. Combined with premium materials, the flat design of the Electronic Gear Selector rounds out cabin craftsmanship.
This midsize luxury sedan provides exceptional rear passenger legroom exceeding European and Asian competitors and even rivaling many full-size luxury sedans - all without sacrificing trunk space.
Enjoy either the unparalleled Krell® Audio System or the exclusive ELS Studio® Premium Audio System, each with a 14-speaker layout. Designed for the true audiophile, creating a truly immersive sound experience.
A range of technology features designed to improve the experience of every drive.
A GPS-linked solar sensing system measures the sun's position and intensity to adjust cabin temperatures. Tri-zone automatic climate control lets the driver, front and rear passengers adjust settings for personalized comfort.
A high-mounted 8-inch LED screen lets you find destinations and directions using the Voice Recognition System. Avoid delays on busy streets and freeways using AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic™ with Advanced Traffic Rerouting.
Every aspect of the RLX has been masterfully orchestrated to ensure a smooth, quiet ride. Without increasing weight or thickness, the acoustic windshield and door glass reduce wind noise to tame the sound of the road.
Tuned by Grammy Award-winning producer Elliot Scheiner, the ELS Studio®Premium Audio System transforms your RLX into a personal soundstage with extended frequency range, lower distortion and enhanced clarity.
Find AcuraWatch™ driver assist technology in every RLX. With Collision Mitigation Braking System™, Road Departure Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist and new Traffic Jam Assist, your RLX puts safety first.
The Jewel Eye® LED headlights carve out their own space in the RLX profile. Brighter, whiter and longer-lasting than traditional headlights, they cast a precisely focused beam far into the future.
Fog Lights can be invaluable in navigating poor weather conditions, including not only dense fog, but also rain and snow. Integrated design for a factory-installed appearance and fit, Precision optics provide a highly controlled light pattern that enhances visibility, Plug-in connectors eliminate wire splicing and cutting for greater reliability.
In wet conditions, Vehicle Stability Assist™ can reduce the dangers of over and under steering and loss of traction by applying brakes at each wheel as needed and when necessary, reducing engine power.
If the RLX detects a vehicle in the next lane's alert zone while going over 20 MPH, an indicator appears on the side mirror. If you signal in the direction of that vehicle, the mirror indicator flashes and a warning beep sounds.
Giving you the ability to see more, the Surround View Camera system delivers an unparalleled vantage point while parking. Six camera angles positioned around the vehicle assist in uncovering potential obstacles.
Agile Handling Assist® uses the components of the Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) system to help improve handling. Active braking, usually on an inside wheel, helps you trace the line through a curve with smaller steering inputs. VSA is not a substitute for safe driving. It cannot correct the vehicle's course in every situation or compensate for reckless driving. Control of the vehicle always remains with the driver.
Our innovative parking sensors, in the front grille and flush with the rear bumpers, detect when the RLX is getting close to an object with a series of beeps, which sound more rapid as you get closer.
Go wireless with Bluetooth® streaming audio. Launch Pandora® or Aha™ from your smartphone or tune SiriusXM® Satellite Radio to one of 140+ channels of digital programming. Operate your device through the audio system controls.
All RLX models now come with a sleek, convenient Electronic Gear Selector. Intuitive transmission operation uses pushbuttons for Drive, Neutral and Park, and pull-levers for Reverse and the Parking Brake.
The RLX is well connected. Among the AcuraLink® suite of services, you can send a point of interest directly from your smartphone (or home computer) to the RLX navigation system as a ready-to-drive route.
