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

    The RLX Sport Hybrid uses a modified version of the 310 horsepower 3.5-liter, V-6 engine found in the front-wheel drive models. Joining the engine in powering the front wheels is 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 result is an overall 377 horsepower66 combined with a significant increase in city and combined fuel economy ratings.

  • Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD)
    Sport Hybrid SH-AWD Feature

    In addition to providing more power, the twin rear motors in the rear operate so power can be directed to the outside rear wheel in a curve while the inner wheel creates resistance, helping rotate the vehicle through the turn. With the front tires no longer bearing the full load of changing the car’s direction, the sharp turn-in response makes the RLX shockingly nimble and responsive, particularly for a car of its size. At the same time, the system is just as effective as conventional AWD systems in helping keep the vehicle sure-footed in poor weather.

  • Precision All-Wheel Steer™
    Front-wheel drive model feature

    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.

  • 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
    Standard Feature

    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 interval behind a car detected ahead of you so you can enjoy cruise control even in light traffic conditions.

  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
    Standard Feature

    Using the same forward camera as the Lane Departure Warning system, Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)59 works proactively to keep the vehicle inside the detected lane.
