What to Expect From the 2018 Acura RLX
For 2018, the Acura RLX comes with a strikingly elegant design that dramatically enhances the performance of the car. Acura considers the RLX to be the most sophisticated and best-performing sedan they have yet produced. The car is a 377 horsepower Sports Hybrid with 7-speed DCT or 310 horsepower Precision All-Wheel Steer paired to an all-new ten-speed automatic transmission. The vehicle is their flagship car and their biggest sedan.
All New and Exciting
You will find the Acura RLX has all-new LED Taillights, an exposed dual exhaust and a gloss black rear diffuser that makes a statement. It's the second Acura sedan to adopt the signature Diamond Pentagon Grille, and the first Acura sedan to offer premium paint in Brilliant Red Metallic and Majestic Black Pearl. Emphasizing the athletic stance of the car are the deeply sculpted sides sweeping over the rear wheel arches and 22-inch wheels. Signature lighting jewel constellation LED headlights and floating taillights, as well as the absence of a B-pillar further compliment the continuous sweeping design.
The Acura Watch driver assistance expanding technology now includes Traffic Jam Assist. This system operates from a complete stop and at low speeds to help keep your car in the lane in which you are travelling. It is an Acura first and comes standard on all 2018 RLX models.
Dramatic Eye-Catching Interior
The modern details of the Acura RLX interior are expressed by the detailed double-layered instrument panel against the contrasting redesigned front sports seats that come with aggressive bolstering and high-contrast piping and stitching. A new light colour option of Espresso is also available. The thin floating rear seats give the impression of relaxing in a lounge rather than being in a car. The large door rocker panel flows into the interior side sill, transitioning into a cantilever for the floating rear seats and then flowing down to help form the structure for the metal airfoil shape of the rear headrests.
Added to this, is the pleasing appearance of the exotic wood hand-crafted audio speaker grilles. There is a sport-styled steering wheel, with paddle shifters, integrated dynamic system controls and a heads-up display. The ultra-wide and curved centre screen operated by a floating touchpad suspended on the cantilevered centre stack, all further contribute to the ambience found by passengers in the interior of the car.
