Pros: Lots of exclusive high-tech features; fine ride and handling balance makes RLX feel agile on curvy roads but comfortable and absorbent in everyday driving; clean, sophisticated cabin has genuinely upscale ambiance
Cons: Several features are available only in most expensive model; doesn’t stand out significantly from smaller, more affordable Acura TL; limited model offerings and lack of traditional options mean that RLX isn’t as customizable as other premium midsize sedans
CG Says: Acura’s all-new flagship sedan strikes a fine balance between luxury, technology, and invigorating performance, all while maintaining the distinctive character of the Acura brand. The RLX is brimming with available high-tech equipment, including class-exclusive 4-wheel steering. However, since Acura doesn’t offer traditional stand-alone options, acquiring some features means stepping up to expensive trim packages. Still, RLX is worth checking out if you’re in the market for a premium sedan with an athletic, contemporary personality.
