Grip the steering wheel with excitement every time you rev this engine. The 2018 Acura RLX’s standard 3.5-liter V-6 cranks out a healthy 310 horsepower and 272 lb-ft of torque and is well-matched with the new ten-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive system. With this configuration, you’ll get precision control and top-notch power on demand.

But if you’re looking for something more, the premium Sport Hybrid model with Acura’s Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive utilizes a hybrid system similar to the NSX’s that includes the above 3.5-liter V6 paired to an electric motor (47 hp) and backed by a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Two additional rear electric motors (each 36 hp) power the rear wheels for a total system output of 377 horsepower and 341 lb-ft of torque. Get more than just your average car with this trim.

Inside, you’ll love the spacious seats with ample legroom and high-quality materials on every surface. The 2018 RLX cabin is an open, elegant space with Milano leather available in four colors and each with their own contrast stitching options so you can customize it to match your style. Enjoy either the unparalleled Krell® Audio System or the exclusive ELS Studio® Premium Audio System, each with a 14-speaker layout. Designed for the true audiophile, so you can hear your favorite songs with perfect clarity.

Take the guesswork out of every turn with the new Head-Up Display. With this intelligent new feature, you can view the speedometer readings, power distribution on the hybrid, safety alerts, and more without taking your eyes off the road. It’s a transparent image projected onto the lower windshield so you can quickly see the most important info and stay focused on the car ahead of you.
