  • Precision All-Wheel Steer™
    Standard Feature (FWD)

    Precision All-Wheel Steer™ (P-AWS®) is designed to deliver an unprecedented level of handling precision and control. It’s the first system that enables the rear wheels to adjust toe angles independently of each other. Working in concert with Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®)12 and the Agile Handling Assist™ dynamic braking system, P-AWS helps enhance vehicle stability, maneuverability, and control.

  • Sport Hybrid 3-Motor System
    Sport Hybrid SH-AWD Feature

    The RLX Sport Hybrid uses a modified version of the 3.5-liter, V-6 engine found in the front-drive RLX, but combines it with a 47 horsepower electric motor located in the transmission housing and two additional 36 horsepower motors mounted side by side between the rear wheels. The engine and front motor drive the front wheels while the twin motors power the rear wheels. The engine and three motors combine to produce 377 horsepower66 and the power to the rear motors varies to enhance handling all while achieving EPA Fuel Economy Ratings2 of 28/ 32 / 30 mpg (city /highway/combined).

  • Jewel Eye® LED Headlights
    Standard Feature

    All RLX models are equipped with Jewel Eye® LED headlights which provide a whiter, brighter beam than HID or halogen headlights, while using less energy and lasting significantly longer.

  • On Demand Multi-use Display (ODMD)
    Standard Feature

    Acura has long been at the forefront of audio and information technology. But as the number of features have grown, so have the number of buttons on the center panel. The RLX designers, however, devised an intuitively easy way to use a touch screen with all the controls you need at any given time. What could have resulted in over 30 buttons is now a mere nine.

  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow
    Advance Package

    Conventional cruise control has always been welcome on long highway trips, but can be of little use on an urban driver’s daily routine. As with a conventional system, the available Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow53 system allows you to set a desired speed, but it will also keep a set space from the car ahead of you so you can enjoy cruise control even in light traffic conditions.

  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
    Advance Package
