Acura RLX Overview
Acura's flagship falls well short of its luxury competitors. The ride is jumpy and unsettled, and the lack of handling agility makes the RLX feel ungainly. Its slick and responsive 310-hp V6 and six-speed automatic powertrain is a high point. Our tested FWD model averaged 23-mpg overall. A hybrid version adds electric motors to power the rear wheels for all-wheel drive and gets a claimed 30 mpg. The cabin is spacious and well-made, and includes a raft of electronic and connectivity features, but it isn't particularly luxurious and controls are overly complicated. First-year reliability has been average, but the RLX scored too low to recommend. No less noteworthy, it also fared rather low in our Owner Satisfaction Survey.
