2014-2020
2014 Redesign Year
Acura's flagship falls well short of its competitors. The ride is jumpy and unsettled, and the lack of handling agility makes the RLX feel ungainly.
Its responsive 310-hp V6 and six-speed automatic powertrain is a high point. Our tested front-wheel-drive model averaged 23-mpg overall. A pricey all-wheel-drive hybrid is available, and gets an EPA-rated 30 mpg combined. The cabin is spacious and well-made, and includes a raft of electronic and connectivity features, but it isn't particularly luxurious and the controls are overly complicated. 2014-2015 models offer forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking, but only on top-trim Advance models. 2016 models bring that AcuraWatch safety suite down to the mid-level Technology trim, as well as adding cross-traffic alert. A surround-view camera system was added to the top-trim Advance. 2016 made AcuraWatch standard on all trims.
