The Difference Between the Acura RLX and Other Luxury Sedans

2018 Acura RLX Interior Front Seating and Dashboard

The Acura RLX may not be the first name that comes to mind when you think of luxury sedans, but it definitely should be. While other luxury sedans may have more name brand clout, the RLX stands out from the pack as a truly one-of-a-kind model that beats out the competition on several levels. Here are just a few reasons why.

Performance

In terms of sheer fun and control, the RLX beats out similar models such as the Lexus GS 350. Much of this comes from the pairing of the Precision All-Wheel Steering with an all-new 10-speed automatic transmission, allowing for enhanced acceleration and superior passing ability. Few other luxury sedans can boast similar equipment. And the available RLX Hybrid brags a cutting-edge three motor system that delivers 377 HP*, far more than you’ll find most anywhere else.

Standard Features

Given the kind of investment that most luxury sedans require, one would expect them to boast impressive features without charging extra. But the Acura RLX has a range of standard features that you’d be hard-pressed to find standard elsewhere in New Haven, such as:

  • GPS-Linked Climate Control
  • Active Sound Control and Active Noise Cancellation
  • Two Intuitive Touchscreen Displays
  • Multi-View Rear Camera

As an example of just how rare this is in the luxury sedan segment, the Lexus GS 350, or other models in the luxury segment, don’t offer any of these features as standard.
