Acura RLX: Electrifying Performance, Sophisticated Luxury

377 Horsepower2
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 Genesis G80 Sport. 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 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid also includes a long list of standard luxury amenities not available on the 2019 Genesis G80 Sport including tri-zone climate control, a 3-D view navigation system and Traffic Jam Assist. Advanced technologies unique to the RLX such as GPS-Linked Climate Control12 and Active Sound Control further elevate the driving experience.
