Acura RLX Introduced Ahead of Monterey Debut

2018 Acura RLX refresh packs a new face and NSX DNA

Inside, the 2018 Acura RLX receives upgraded materials and touchpoints including a completely redesigned seat featuring high-contrast piping and stitching, as well as a new Espresso interior option, which adds sophistication to an interior with class-leading space and comfort.

"This redesign of the 2018 Acura RLX is transformational, creating road presence and styling that better reflect underlying performance capabilities of the vehicle", said Acura vice president and general manager John Ikeda. Chief among the changes is the new signature diamond pentagon grille design which is incorporated into a new front clip that features a more sculpted hood surface.

Honda's near-luxury arm unveiled the 2018 RLX on Thursday ahead of its formal debut during Monterey Car Week in California. Completing the aggressive makeover are new wheel designs. Instead of the front axle, however, two of those motors are on the rear axle and they give the vehicle all-wheel drive. Both models use a 3.5-liter direct-injected V6, though the Sport Hybrid backs that up with three electric motors. Acura brags that this driveline shares componentry from the NSX supercar's hybrid setup, but it produces less power than that mid-engined stunner does-196 horsepower and 135 lb-ft less, to be specific, for totals of 377 horsepower and 341 lb-ft.

Look for the 2018 Acura RLX to hit USA dealerships this November. He played basketball for ten years and he was also a coach for two. The V-6 is mated to a new 10-speed automatic transmission.

The 2018 RLX is available in two new premium shades - Brilliant Red Metallic and Majestic Black Pearl - and will go on sale in November.

Standard features on the Sport Hybrid will include heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats and steering wheel, a Krell audio system, an around-view camera system, parking sensors, LED fog lights, and remote starting. In addition, there is Traffic Jam Assist which will help you out when you are driving in slow-speed situations. Working together with the adaptive cruise control with Low Follow, the Traffic Jam Assist helps in keeping the vehicle in its lane and a set interval behind the auto ahead in highly congested traffic situations. It includes forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warnings, active lane control, adaptive cruise control, and road departure mitigation.
