2020 Red Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD® Front View Driving on a Highway

Acura RLX: Electrifying Performance, Sophisticated Luxury

377 Horsepower2
7 SPEED DCT

The 2020 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid is the ultimate high-performance luxury sedan, boasting DNA from the NSX supercar – something you won’t find on the 2019 Audi A6. It features a powerful iVTEC® V6 paired with a revolutionary three-motor Super Handling All-Wheel Drive® system. The motors provide instant torque, at any speed, while separate motors for each rear wheel rotate the car through turns. The result is incredible acceleration and handling with impressive fuel efficiency.

Beyond its jaw-dropping performance capabilities, the RLX Sport Hybrid includes a long list of standard luxury amenities you’ll have to pay extra for on A6. Heated and ventilated front sport seats keep front-row occupants comfortable; rear outboard seating positions and a leather-wrapped steering wheel are also heated. Advanced technologies such as Head-Up Display and GPS-Linked Climate Control12  further elevate the driving experience. And with more legroom and shoulder room than the Audi A6, the RLX Sport Hybrid offers plenty of space for everyone to stretch out.
