Purchased a used Acura RLX with low kilometers. I was not looking for an Acura RLX but the car showed up on search parameters. I was surprised by the quality of the interior and the performance of the car. I like the quality of the seats with the soft leather and cooling/heating features The engine is very responsive, especially on the highway at high speeds. Fuel economy is impressive. The ride was quiet and composed. On twisty roads, I certainly felt the P-AWS working for my benefit. It’s difficult to explain but I felt more confident with P-AWS on curves. Lots of space in the back seat and trunk. I don’t mind the dual screens but found the info system a bit slow. Overall, I’m pleased with my purchase and will certainly consider another RLX in the future. You get a lot of luxury and tech features for less money. The options in my previous Mercedes Benz were expensive. The car feels more agile for its size too. Difficult to compare this car with BMW, Mercedes Benz, or Audi. The whole driving experience is totally different in a good way.

by Don’t be confused by automotive popularity votes! from Norfolk, VA on Wed Jan 01 2014

To compare the Acura against the what the Germans offer instead of what you are getting is a little misleading. For example, the RLX is the second strongest engine in its class among LUXURY vehicles (M37 strongest) (i.e. RLX is considered near luxury because Acura does not offer a large size vehicle; go figure!) Secondly, MSRP is just that, a suggestion. But to get RLX value in other Japanese, American or German, you will pay well over the suggested price of the RLX. Acura got it right, they chose elegance over flash. They provide reliability over liability. Necessary performance over relative performance. Bottom line. I’m canceling my subscription to automotive magazines, they go with the popular choice, not with the sane one!

This would be a great car if not for a problem with something draining the battery. I purchased the car in May 2014; Had to call Acura roadside assistance to start car in Jan 2015, and again in Sep 2015. The car was taken to the dealership to be checked out after each incident, but maintenance personnel could not find the problem. The only thing they could tell me for sure, was that there was no problem with the battery, They suggested that I might not be driving the car often or far enough, or that I might be storing the keys less than 15 feet away from the car. When I called Acura I was told the same thing, which to me suggested that because neither organization could find out what was draining the battery, they somehow figured I was doing something wrong. .It is very frustrating to be paying so much for an unreliable car. Too bad I didn’t buy a Mercedes.

by PRIOR DEDICATED ACURA ONWER from South Windsor,CT on Fri Sep 05 2014

I’m on MY 8th Acura( 6 of them being RL’s) I am shocked at that LEAP backward that Acura has taken with the RLX. My previous car was a 2011 RL that was clearly the best car I have owned.It was tech savvy and EASY to use, it had ALL-WHEEL drive,it had AIR-CONDITIONED SEATS, the navigation provided weather and ACTUAL traffic incidents and construction reports and the Bluetooth was so easy a monkey could use it.Also, when driving you could program any location or a new location into the nav system. NONE of these features exist on the new RLX. In addition the concierge service for $600 is without question a major ripoff. It’s not the price —-it’s the principle it doesn’t work for «instant» traffic. I’ve had multiple problems with the traffic system and the Link feature.My concern and complaint is that the system DOES NOT WORK. Acura subbed out this system to a third party who presumably re-wrote the software.I’m sure Acura got the cheapest price in doing so.Well it shows. I have finally complained to the Acura owner’s relations people. I am awaiting their callback. But in the meantime, I challenge ANY ACURA technical person to see my car and tell me I’m wrong about the nav /traffic system. I believe based on a review of their brochure that this would qualify with the FTC as false advertising. I know this site does not want disclosure of names/ e-mails so i’ll just say that I live in So. Windsor,Ct and I purchased the car on 10/28/13. Maybe someone from Acura reads these reviews and will contact -it shouldn’t be too difficult.

I bought mine Pre Owned with 65k miles and now have 80k on it. The rear wheel steering PAWS needs replaced and is $6000 to fix. Acura knows the rear wheel acuators go bad and each side is $2500 plus labor and alignment. Also now I am having issues with draining my battery. I looked online and many others are having the same issues and with less miles on their RLX. I am used to Lexus and Toyotas with no issues and have driven them for 300k miles. This is rediculous and Acura need to do something about it ! I should of bought the Lexus LS460 instead.

I have had my car towed twice and the first time the dealership said I left on the map light and it drained the battery. This time the dealer said the car started when they moved the car, but this was after the car was jumped. I feel there is a faulty design somewhere which is draing the battery.

by HighSierra49er from Roseville, CA on Fri Aug 15 2014

Have now had the RLX for 12 months. Battery replaced once, towed by AAA six times to the dealership with an intermittent dead battery issue. The dealership cannot locate the electrical drain causing the battery to fail. Whenever the car is jump started the computer resets and the vehicle works fine for a few days, then the dreaded weak or dead battery. Their most common suggestion is to make sure we drive the car every day to keep the battery charged and take longer trips. Supposedly if the car sits for three or four days the battery could drain far enough to not start the vehicle. Too many visits to the dealer with unsatisfactory results, yet the dealer says they cannot trace the problem, so no lemon law violations. Contacted Honda Regional in Torrance and the same response. They cannot find the problem, so sorry about the inconvenience. So the car has become a garage queen and at one year old has just 3,000 miles on the odometer. Too many accessories controlled by the computer and Honda/Acura seems baffled unless it’s a simple solution. Next time will stick to MB or BMW for a car in this price range. Previous Accords were quite reliable, upgrade to a RLX and seems Honda is over their head in trying to compete with the imports in the luxury category.

Battery on this car went bad less than 3 years. There was a recall on the headlights. Within 1 1/2 years moisture was developing behind the lens. Now my headlight is malfunctioning and to replace the bulb which is part of housing it cost $3000. So Upset.

Our Take on the 2014 Acura RLX

Sometimes automakers do things that make you scratch your head — a strange name, an odd vehicle, the discontinuation of a model that seemed successful. And in the world of automotive head-scratching, no brand has sold more dandruff shampoo than Acura.

The 2014 Acura RLX is a nice enough luxury sedan, but its place in the market — and even in Acura’s own lineup — is another in a long line of head-scratchers.

Over the past dozen or so years, Acura has abandoned such robust model names as Legend, Integra and Vigor for alphabeticals like MDX and RSX [scratch]. It went in a bizarre styling direction that temporarily turned one of the market’s nicest looking cars, the TL, into a punch line. Read More

Action shot taken during the driver-side small overlap frontal crash test.

The dummy’s position in relation to the door frame, steering wheel, and instrument panel after the crash test indicates that the driver’s survival space was maintained very well.

The frontal and side curtain airbags worked well together to keep the head from coming close to any stiff structure or outside objects that could cause injury.

Intrusion into the driver’s space was minimal, and risk of injuries to the dummy’s legs and feet was low.

Кузов и размеры авто

Дизайн кузова облегчённый, благодаря чему улучшились аэродинамические качества, что в свою очередь повлияло на скоростные параметры седана. Совместная работа новой системы I-VTEC и технологии Variable Cylinder экономит расход топлива. Американское рейтинговое агентство ЕРА высоко оценило это достижение.

Капот автомобиля, его передние крылья, двери, балка бампера, днище и рулевая колонка изготовлены из алюминия. Остальные ключевые узлы, которые составляют 55 % площади тела всего автомобиля, сделаны из стали высочайшего качества. Динамическая, боковая и статическая жёсткость кузова отвечает необходимым требованиям, возможность деформации при столкновении сведена к минимуму, соответственно и безопасность машины выше.

Базовая длина «Акура» RLX 2014 равна 2850 мм, в результате чего повышается комфортность езды и управляемость автомобилем. Пассажиры, находящиеся на заднем сидении, также чувствуют себя более уютно. Длина авто общая — 4981 мм. Вес — 1783 кг. Ширина — 1897 мм.

Очень красивый дизайн фар освещения. LED светильники в тандеме с фарами Jewel Eye™ великолепно освещают дорогу, пучок света распределяется с поразительной точностью и делает более качественным видение в ночное время. Задние фары оснащены светодиодной подсветкой с периферийным устройством.

Салон седана автомобиля

Интерьер салона полностью соответствует предназначению автомобиля — модель бизнес-класса. Панель приборов обтянута шикарной натуральной кожей, вставки из дорогого дерева дополняют общий богатый вид панели. Панель кнопок заменил современный навигационный дисплей, размер которого достигает 8 дюймов. Располагается он на передней консоли. Вся отделка салона выполнена из натуральной кожи цвета шампань.

Следует отметить супер удобные передние сидения. Здесь много пространства не только для ног и головы, комфортно чувствует себя все тело — локти, колени, спина, бедра и др. Аналогичными качествами обладают и задние сидения. Есть достаточно места для расположения ног пассажиров, сидящих сзади, благодаря чему во время длительных поездок чувство дискомфорта отсутствует.

Все сидения авто имеют подогрев и электропривод, оснащённый 8 положениями регулирования спинки и 4 положениями для поясничной зоны.

Максимальной комфортностью отличается место водителя. Компьютер с 7-дюймовым цветным сенсорным монитором позволяет управлять аудио и видео файлами, навигацией, осуществить проверку состояния авто, а также войти в интернет-систему AcuraLink, где есть много развлечений и полезная информация. Также с помощью данной системы можно сделать экстренный вызов, развернуть подушки безопасности, отследить попытку угона и др.

Технические характеристики Acura RLX 2014

Acura RLX 2014 оснащена бензиновым двигателем с 6 цилиндрами и объёмом 3,5 л с непосредственным впрыском топлива, а также 6-ступенчатой автоматической коробкой передач. Мощность измеряется 310 лошадиными силами.

Несмотря на шикарные формы бизнес-седан достаточно экономичен в потреблении топлива. Расход топлива при данном двигателе на 100 км пути будет равняться 11,8 л в условиях города, 7,6 л на трассе и 9,8 л в комбинированном варианте. Максимальная скорость, которую может развить машина, составляет чуть больше 200 км в час.

Шасси имеет систему управления All-Wheel Steer, которая обеспечивает постоянный контроль за сцеплением с дорожным покрытием каждого колеса и для более качественной управляемости равномерно распределяет мощность между ними.

Топовая модель седана Acura RLX 2014 будет оснащена системой Sport Hybrid SH-AWD. Это значит, что будут работать три электродвигателя и один бензиновый мотор V-8 с 6 цилиндрами, объёмом 3,5 литра с прямым впрыскиванием топлива. Коробка передач предполагается 7-ступенчатая, а общая мощность будет равна 370 лошадиным силам.

Безопасность

Новая модель автомобиля характеризуется высоким уровнем безопасности. Эти параметры обеспечивают качественные подушки безопасности и предупреждающая об опасности столкновения система. Последняя автоматически включает тормозное устройство, если водитель не услышал или не увидел предупреждение.

Европейский комитет по проведению краш-тестов NCAP предполагает поставить седану 5-звёздочную оценку в топовом рейтинге безопасности.

Видео тест-драйв Acura RLX 2014:

2014 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD

When the first Honda Insight beat the first Toyota Prius to market a decade and a half ago, Big H created a new vehicle segment in the U.S. and catapulted gas-electric vehicles into the mainstream. We probably don’t need to tell you that sales of such fuel sippers subsequently exploded or that the Prius became the darling of the segment, likely because it offered buyers the double bonus of having a back seat and not looking like a bionic tadpole.

But, technology aficionados that we are, we can’t help wondering if the cars’ guts had something to do with the Prius’s dominance. Honda’s hybrid system, dubbed Integrated Motor Assist, was very simple, whereas Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive was more complex. It didn’t help that, in the intervening years, Honda pretty much stood pat with IMA while the rest of the industry released ever more intricate and efficient designs similar to Toyota’s, with the Chevrolet Volt plug-in coming in as the hybrid-tech high-water mark. Well, until now.

Honda is back at the bleeding edge of hybrid technology, introducing a flurry of innovative systems across its product lineup. For starters, the new Honda Accord plug-in and regular hybrids share a groundbreaking and Honda-exclusive powertrain design that lacks a transmission. The system is anything but simple, yet it’s seamless and works very well in day-to-day operation. Further, the reborn 2015 Acura NSX will debut with its own hybrid powertrain with two electric motors driving the front wheels and a twin-turbo V-6 and another electric motor spinning the rears.

TMU Ain’t Just an Airport in Costa Rica

When the subject of this story, the Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD—or “SH SH-AWD” for short—was announced, many thought that it would share its hybrid guts with the NSX, only in reverse. That isn’t the case, except perhaps philosophically. The only common bit between the two cars is what Acura calls the twin motor unit (TMU). In the RLX SH SH-AWD, the TMU is fixed to a rubber-isolated subframe at the rear axle and is what enables the RLX hybrid to offer four-wheel drive via two identical 36-hp electric motors that are coupled together by a planetary gearset and produce 54 lb-ft of torque.

Below 78 mph, each motor can supply torque to its assigned wheel independently via yaw-inducing torque vectoring, or the two can work in concert to contribute thrust or braking. Above 78 mph, the TMU can still perform the torque-vectoring trick, but it ditches its acceleration and deceleration duties. Controlled via electronics and connected to the rest of the powertrain only via wires, the TMU means there’s no driveshaft. It’s unique among torque-vectoring differentials in that it can deliver torque to one tire while the other pulls torque (or, put another way, produces negative torque) and feeds the energy into the regenerative braking system.

As you dive for an apex, you feel the SH SH-AWD’s TMU fend off understeer and revector the car just as well as the mechanically based SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) system did in the old RL, which was replaced by the RLX. The TMU is doing the lifting at every step away from a stop; the RLX hybrid can operate as a pure electric, rear-wheel-drive car up to about 50 mph provided you’re gentle on the throttle. (So, no, you can’t do lurid drifts.) Another caveat to RWD awesomeness: Range in this mode is limited to a mile or two from the 1.3-kWh lithium-ion battery. If it doesn’t deliver fun or long, silent cruises in the moonlight, the EV mode does allow the 4350-pound Acura to score highly on the EPA’s city mileage test, where it notched 28 mpg. That’s an improvement of 40 percent over the front-drive, nonhybrid RLX. The hybrid’s 32-mpg EPA highway rating is 1 mpg better than that of its conventionally powered sibling, which is to be expected, given that a hybrid is most beneficial in urban driving where it can recapture and use electrical energy more often.

Styles

You’ll like the Acura RLX if you prefer subdued styling over typical luxury flash. Where the RLX really shines is from the driver’s seat where the sedan’s skillful suspension tuning delivers a balanced blend of bump suppression and engaging handling.

Potential RLX dislikes include comparatively low-key styling and the lack of a rear-wheel-drive option. Those looking for a super high-performance model a la AMG or BMW’s M division will have to find their kicks elsewhere.

What’s New for 2014

Compared to the departed 2013 Acura RL the 2014 RLX features…well…an X in its name. More substantive changes include a completely redesigned interior and exterior, a new all-wheel steering system, the addition of a hybrid all-wheel-drive model and a modernized 2-screen infotainment system.

2014 Acura RLX Expert Review

The 2014 RLX is Acura’s new flagship sedan (replacing the departed RL). Befitting its flagship status, the mid-size RLX is endowed with high-end interior appointments along with the latest technology, including an optional and shockingly capable lane departure prevention feature. Wrapped in restrained but distinct bodywork, the RLX is roughly the same length as the old RL but thanks to a longer wheelbase Acura’s ultimate sedan boasts segment-topping rear-seat legroom. Refined ride and handling, and a roomy, classy interior propel the RLX to heights of excellence never seen in its RL forebear. Whether that excellence will help the Acura RLX take meaningful market share from the dominant BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedans remains to be seen.

In the ways luxury car buyers actually use their cars, the Acura RLX performs brilliantly. For long commutes or short jaunts, the suspension deftly smooths the road’s imperfections. At the same time, the new electric steering system enables direct control of the vehicle while also filtering vibration and harshness that might otherwise reach the driver’s hands. Further enhancing the dynamic experience is a standard all-wheel steering system and firm but communicative brakes. Acceleration from the 3.5-liter V6 is strong and smooth, aided by the well-spaced gears and silky shifts from the 6-speed automatic transmission. Amid the free-flowing praise we should also point out that the RLX is really quiet, thanks to a vibration-reducing active engine mount, an active noise reducing sound system, and on the Tech models and above, noise-reducing 19-inch wheels along with acoustic glass that further minimizes wind and engine noise.

P-AWS (PRECISION ALL-WHEEL STEERING)
All-wheel steering is the Pauly Shore of automotive technology, persistent yet rarely popular. Unlike Pauly, we’re big fans of the RLX’s P-AWS system, which independently adjusts rear-wheel toe angles up to two degrees either direction, noticeably improving vehicle agility and stability.

BRAKE HOLD
Do you ever wish your braking foot could take a brake? Then say hello to Brake Hold, a new feature that automatically holds the RLX in place when stopped. When the light turns green just press the gas pedal with your well-rested right foot and you’re on your way!

Somebody once said “space is the ultimate luxury.” Obviously that person never owned a yacht or enjoyed a private concert from Beyonce, but those who truly relish space will appreciate the ample rear-seat legroom and usable middle seat of the RLX. That roominess extends rearward to the spacious 15.3-cubic-foot trunk. The sedan’s ample quarters are adorned in uplevel materials arranged in a contemporary but not excessively stylized layout while the dash is cleanly arranged featuring intuited climate controls, a 7-inch haptic-feedback touchscreen featuring large icons, and switchgear that moves with a premium feel.

Design is always subjective but to our eyes the 2014 Acura RLX looks a little plain. That’s not to say effort wasn’t spent injecting style into the sedan. Along the sides, you’ll find tasteful body sculpting while the RLX’s face is dominated by intricate headlights, each containing a whopping 10 LED lighting elements that we’re told (and believe) improve visibility for the driver. Though roughly the same length as the RL it replaced, the 2014 RLX is nearly two inches wider helping facilitate a slightly roomier interior.

Among the Acura RLX’s abundant standard features are a moonroof, capless fuel filler, tri-zone climate control, power tilt and telescoping steering wheel, heated front seats, and a 10-speaker audio system. Tech features include a 7-inch touchscreen, an 8-inch information screen, Bluetooth connectivity and keyless entry with push-button start. Adding to the safety of the RLX sedan are seven airbags, including a driver’s knee airbag supplemented by advanced driver aids like forward collision warning and lane departure warning.

Options for the 2014 RLX are divided into packages, each including the features of the package beneath it. First up is a voice-activated navigation system that includes AcuraLink, which bundles smartphone-like functionality, real-time news and information, a concierge service, and accident notification. Next is the Technology Package that adds leather seats, power-retractable side mirrors, acoustic glass and 19-inch noise-reducing wheels. The Krell package piles on with a Krell “ultra-premium” 14-speaker audio system and rear sunshades, while the top-tier Advance Package overflows with adaptive cruise control, heated rear seats, ventilated front seats, lane-keeping assist, parking sensors, and other niceties.

An all-wheel-drive hybrid Acura RLX will be introduced in due time, but for now the only powertrain choice is a 3.5-liter V6 spinning the front wheels. The sole transmission choice is a 6-speed automatic featuring steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters for manual control. Pushing the RLX’s «sport mode» button inspires the sedan to sportier shift behavior, throttle sensitivity, steering response, and operation of the P-AWS system for an enhanced sense of driver control. To help maximizing engine efficiency the V6 features direct injection along with the ability to run in fuel-saving 3-cylinder mode at low engine loads, supported by an active engine mount that reduces vibration when it does.

3.5-liter V6
310 horsepower @ 6,500 rpm
272 lb-ft of torque @ 4,500 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 20/31 mpg

The base 2014 Acura RLX has a starting price of $49,345 including destination, rising to $61,345 for the very well-equipped RLX Advanced Package. With the exception of the similarly priced Lexus GS, the 2014 RLX sedan handily undercuts competitors including the BMW 5 Series, Audi A6 and Mercedes-Benz E-Class when comparing models that match the RLX’s horsepower. However, one of the RLX’s biggest competitors comes from within Acura’s gates. For about $44,000, you could also buy a fully loaded Acura TL with nearly identical interior space, a slight 5-horsepower deficit, and Acura’s super-handling all-wheel drive. Something to think about. And while you’re thinking be sure to check the Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price for the most up-to-date pricing of the Acura RLX in your area. As for resale values, Acuras tend to hold their value well over the long haul, a trend we expect to carry on with the RLX.

2014 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD drive review

Acura’s second-generation Legend, released for 1991, was one of the most physically attractive vehicles of the decade, regardless of class or type. Its replacement was something called the RL, a car that’s never quite grabbed the public’s imagination and yanked the way its predecessor did. Rap star Ludacris still proudly owns his ’93 Legend. The high hats at Honda’s higher-end marque are hoping the new RLX will inspire similar levels of devotion, especially the top-spec RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD. The “SH” of course, stands for “Super Handling.” The Japanese penchant for adding “super” as an, ahem, superlative continues sans abatement.

The tech involved in Acura’s new flagship is pretty impressive. Pulling a page from the Tommy Ivo playbook, the RLX Sport Hybrid features four powerplants. Up front, there’s a 310-hp 3.5-liter V6. Behind that is a 47-hp electric motor. Connected to the rear wheels are two 36-hp motors capable of independent operation. Think of it as a hyperactive limited-slip diff, capable of underdriving the inside wheel in a corner using regenerative braking while juicing the outside wheel to hustle the back end of the car ’round the bend. All three motors are capable of feeding power back into the 1.3-kWh battery pack. Maximum combined output stands at 377 hp and 377 lb-ft of torque.

Inside the Acura RLX Sport Hybrid — likely the best interior Acura has ever done.

The interior is big-feeling and made of stuff befitting the class. It’s not quite as deluxe as a Mercedes-Benz E-class, nor as functionally lovely as the Audi A6, but it holds its own with the BMW 5 Series and betters the Lexus GS.

The styling? It’s straight out of anime. 1980s future-dystopia cop-drama anime, to be exact. The 20-eyes-total headlamps will no doubt please Glenn Danzig. In fact, we could absolutely see the former Misfits frontman bopping down to the local Ralphs for cat litter in a black RLX.

What’s it like to drive?

It’s big, softish and fast. We didn’t realize quite how fast the thing was until we climbed back in after taking a spin in the GS 450h and A6 3.0T Acura had on hand for comparison. While the Lexus and Audi offered a more planted, sporty drive, Highway 1’s corners appeared just that little bit faster in the Acura.

The seats are comfortable enough. If the car were suspended in a more taut fashion, we’d ask for more lateral bolstering. As it is, the car’s speed seems secondary to comfort, which the Acura delivers in spades. In the bends, there’s a measure of body roll, and the steering could use just a touch more heft. Everything in the RLX has the feeling of being on some sort of odd little microsecond delay; it’s as if somebody turned up the reverb on your driving experience.

One exception to that is Acura’s new twin-clutch gearbox. It’s stellar. The rev-matched shifts are nearly imperceptible, and the computer’s brain aggressively (and intelligently) swaps cogs downward during assertive driving. It may well be the next-best thing to Porsche’s justifiably ballyhooed PDK. It will, however, occasionally override the driver’s inputs in a way that Zuffenhausen’s system simply doesn’t.

I am your alien master.

Acura claims 30 combined mpg is available from the RLX Sport Hybrid, but we couldn’t get close to that figure in admittedly spirited driving. From San Francisco into Marin, we averaged under 20 mpg, rather depressing for a hybrid — especially when we were relatively sure the less-complex A6 would deliver superior numbers over the same course. And it most definitely would with the new 3.0-liter twin-turbo diesel under the hood.

Following in the steps of Germany’s Burmester, which recently began lending its knowledge and brand to Porsche’s top-spec audio systems, American audiophile favorite Krell cut a deal with Acura to do the high-end sound system in the RLX. The mids and highs are as lovely and clear as anything we’ve heard in a premium OEM setup, but the bass is a bit woofy and boomy, more appropriate for a kid in a Civic. Tigra and Bunny might be pleased. Fans of The Dan? Less amped.

Finally, if you’d like, the big Acura will drive itself, sort of. Cars equipped with the uplevel Advance package feature a semi-autonomous Lane Keeping Assist function that will steer for you on straights and through gentle bends. We didn’t find it to be quite as good as Mercedes-Benz’s similar feature. None of these systems are truly ready for mass consumption, but employed intelligently by the driver, they can work.

Do I want it?

Though Acura’s pinned its target on the rumps of the 5-series, GS and A6, as well as their respective siblings a class up, the two cars the RLX Sport Hybrid really competes with are the Lincoln MKS and Cadillac XTS. The Japanese techno-bruiser delivers a put-together cushiness that those two cars aspire to but don’t quite nail. Acura may have aimed at the segment stars, but what they’ve come up with is an ideal for the American also-rans to chase.

Car Review: 2014 Acura RLX

Acura’s new flagship is mother-in-law approved

The Jewel Eye LED headlights on the all-new 2014 Acura RLX certainly have a beguiling effect on some. They quickly won over my mother-in-law, and it didn’t take long for her to proclaim that she wanted an RLX after only a short ride – even though she was confined to the back seats.

Mind you, that is not the worst place to be since the rear occupants of the RLX are offered generous legroom, comfortable seating and, in the case of the RLX Elite tester, heated rear seats.

You wouldn’t expect anything less from the new flagship of Acura’s lineup, a mid-size sedan that replaces the RL as the brand’s top offering. What that includes is an appealing design, from those headlights on back. The Acura signature grille is front and centre, the top corners of which blend seamlessly into a crease in the hood that brings the eyes up to the steeply-raked windshield.

The silhouette of the RLX is shapely, highlighted by accent lines over the front wheel arch and another two that run the length of the body. The back end features LED tail lights and a chrome bar across the trunk lid, which opens up to 417 litres of cargo space in the Elite trim (there’s 423 litres in the base RLX).

Turning to the inside, the back bench that my mother-in-law loved so much isn’t the only good seat in the house. The front seats are a cozy place to be and leave you surrounded by a stylish interior that is a mix of traditional features and modern amenities. One of those modern features, though, had me searching for it a little at first. The location of the push-button start — which is red and should have been easy to spot — is a little low for my liking. And I probably would have opted for something other than faux-wood accents, but that overall look is rather nice.

Another pleasant amenity, the ventilated front seats on the RLX Elite, were put to use during one of Montreal’s last hoorahs of summer heat. There’s a lot going on in the centre stack of the RLX, with three separate divisions of displays and controls. From the top, you have a large display screen that serves several functions, from navigation to rear-view camera display and more.

The midsection gets yet another screen — of the touch variety — that controls the radio, ventilation and more. And below that is a more traditional knob and button setup that allows the driver to toggle through the various systems. And on the RLX Elite, the top-level trim that retails at $62,190 (plus a destination charge of $1,945), there are lots of bells and whistles. The entry-level RLX has a starting price of $49,990, and there`s an intermediate RLX Technology also available.

Among them are driving aids like adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, a collision mitigation braking system and lane-keep assist system. And for the audiophiles among you, there’s a Krell ultra-premium audio system, which has 14 speakers that are music to your ears. That’s all on top of standard features like precision all-wheel steering (P-AWS), blind spot monitoring, 12-way power adjustable and heated driver and passenger’s seats, power moonroof, keyless access and much more. The P-AWS, Acura says, monitors and calculates the correct amount of independent rear-wheel steering (toe angle) necessary to help the RLX meet driving conditions.

And for the iPhone users out there, Acura has a handy app that allows you to see the status of your vehicle from anywhere in North America. Like I said, lots of bells and whistles. The RLX isn’t all style and no substance, though. With a 3.5-litre direct injection SOHC, i-VTEC V6 engine, it’s no slouch. Offering up 310 horsepower and 272 lb.-ft. of torque through a six-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift, the setup is appealing and power is not lacking.

But if you need some extra gusto, the RLX has a Sport mode button behind the shifter that enhances the steering, cornering and stability. Fuel efficiency is estimated at 10.5 litres per 100 kilometres in the city and 6.4 L/100 km on the highway. My average, however, was 12.2 L/100 km. Thanks to the acoustic glass and other sound-deadening materials, the RLX’s cabin is noticeably quiet, with only the slightest noise intrusion under hard acceleration. That made it easy to have conversations, even with the passengers relegated to the back seats, which can accommodate three in comfort.

The headlights may draw people toward the RLX, but a quick ride in the sedan will do more to convince potential consumers that this is a vehicle worth having on their shopping list.
