The RLX is all-new for 2014, and replaces its long-running predecessor, the Acura RL. The full-size RL sedan ran from 1996 to 2012. Acura also announced the upcoming addition of a Sport Hybrid RLX model in late 2013.
The RLX houses a 3.5-liter V6 with a six-speed automatic, and has the latest comfort and technology features in the cabin. It is a well-equipped and reliable luxury vehicle, but does not make a strong impression among more status-conscious competitors, despite distinctive "jeweled" headlights.
