Acura RLX: Electrifying Performance, Sophisticated Luxury

377 Horsepower3
7 SPEED DCT

The 2019 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid is the ultimate high-performance luxury sedan, boasting DNA from the NSX supercar – something you won’t find on the BMW 530e. 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 the BMW 5 Series sedan. A soft leather trimmed interior with heated and ventilated front sport seats keep front-row occupants comfortable; rear outboard seating positions and a leather-wrapped steering wheel are also heated.
