    2016 Acura RLX OVERVIEW

    Acura's largest and most luxurious sedan, the RLX distinguishes itself with a boatload of standard technology and outstanding interior room for its class. While the RLX might not carry the cachet of its European competitors, it soundly uncuts them in price.

    What's New for 2016

    The RLX now comes in just two trim levels, both of which carry an updated version of the AcuraWatch technology suite. The suspension has been softened for a more luxurious ride.

    Choosing Your Acura RLX

    The front-drive RLX is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that develops 310 horsepower, matched to a six-speed automatic transmission. Every example gets Acura's signature "jewel eye" LED headlamps, bright-finish 19-inch wheels and a four-wheel steering system.

    Although the RLX is positioned as a midsize luxury sedan, its leather-lined interior comes within a hair of full-size dimensions. The cabin boasts solar-sensing tri-zone climate control, 12-way heated front seats with driver memory, Bluetooth phone and audio, and a 14-speaker Acura/ELS sound system with satellite and Internet radio. You also get navigation with real-time traffic data, rain-sensing wipers and a sunroof.

    The RLX's most impressive standard feature is the AcuraWatch safety system, which includes adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation with automatic braking, lane keeping assist, road departure mitigation, blind spot monitoring and more.

    The RLX is offered in two well-equipped trim levels this year:

    RLX with Technology Package

    The "base" RLX contains all the features mentioned above, many of which were optional last year.

    RLX with Advance Package

    Adds a bundle of premium equipment such as ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, rear sunshades, front and and rear parking sensors, remote start, surround-view cameras and a premium Krell sound system.

    There are no individual options for the RLX beyond the usual dealer-installed accessories.

    CarsDirect Tip

    Now that features like navigation, premium leather and AcuraWatch come standard, the RLX is a complete luxury car right out of the box. The Advance package makes things even more luxurious inside, but it's more of an indulgence than a necessity -- especially at its steep $6,000 price tag.
