Introduction

The 2018 Acura RLX sedan features subtly revised styling that improves its looks and upgraded interior materials. The standard V6 model gets a new 10-speed transmission.

RLX offers two drivetrains: front-wheel-drive V6 or all-wheel-drive hybrid gas-electric.

The standard engine is a 3.5-liter V6 that’s been in the RLX since 2014, making 310 horsepower. It’s front-wheel drive, and for 2018 gets a new 10-speed automatic, replacing the previous 6-speed. It gets an EPA-rated 20 mpg City, 29 Highway, or 23 Combined.

The available hybrid powertrain borrows technology from the spectacular Acura NSX sports car/supercar. The all-wheel-drive RLX Sport Hybrid combines the 3.5-liter V6 with a paddle-shifting 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and three electric motors for a total of 377 horsepower. The hybrid rates 28/29/28 mpg, indicating it’s much more efficient around town.

Premium gasoline is required for both models.

Safety equipment includes rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking, and lane departure warning. RLX Sport Hybrids add a surround-view camera system and parking sensors. For 2018, there is Traffic-jam Assist, which provides some autonomous driving by following the car ahead at speeds up to 40 mph. Safety scores are top-notch with five stars in every test from the NHTSA, and a top Good score in every test from the IIHS, who make the RLX a Top Safety Pick.

Lineup

The 2018 Acura RLX ($55,865) comes with leather upholstery, heated power front seats, keyless ignition, navigation, ELS premium audio, and the safety equipment.

The RLX Sport Hybrid ($62,865) adds surround-view camera system, heated rear seats, cooled front seats, front and rear parking sensors, and 14-speaker Krell audio with crystal-clear sound.

Walkaround

The new hood has more character lines, and the new grille has a handsome diamond pattern. The grille and LED lighting resembles that on the MDX sport utility vehicle. In the rear, LED taillamps trace a ribbon of light around the corners. It’s the most dramatic thing about the styling. There’s also a rear diffuser in glossy black plastic. Liberal use of brightwork adds flash.

The styling is improved, but it’s banal, resembling the last-generation Honda Accord. You have to park a 2018 RLX beside a 2017 RLX to recognize a difference. Competitors like the Audi A7 hatchback and Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan flaunt extravagant curves to make the RLX forgettable.

Interior

Compared again to the Audi A7 and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the wide cabin of the RLX falls short in the lavish department. Fit and finish are good, but the cabin lacks passion. The low dash is a design of twin arcs around the center console, but there’s no design theme apparent.

The front seats are more supportive for 2018, and they are cozy, with contrasting stitching; there’s a new shade we like for 2018 called Espresso. The front seats are heated and have 12-way power support. On the Sport Hybrid, the front seats are cooled.

In the front, there’s excellent kneeroom and headroom, while the passenger footwell is wide and flat.

The rear isn’t so good. Wide door openings make entry and exit easy, and the seat cushions are supportive and shaped well, but the sloped roofline limits rear headroom. Tall passengers graze the headliner, a problem uncommon to sedans this size.

There’s good storage space in the cabin, but the trunk is small, at 14.9 cubic feet. The Sport Hybrid has even less, 12 cubic feet, although that’s more than last year, thanks to a reshaped battery pack.

The dual-screen infotainment system is aged, if not ancient. With the two screens functioning differently, it’s neither fluid nor intuitive. The good news is there are a lot of buttons and switches, so it can be largely avoided. RLX models do not offer Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Driving Impressions

The V6 comes with a new 10-speed automatic. With 310 horsepower, the RLX accelerates with just a small amount of urgency.

As for handling, the front-wheel-drive RLX leans into corners casually. At low speeds, it uses rear-wheel steering, as sensors on the rear wheels turn them in the opposite direction of the front wheels.

It absorbs bumps without fuss. It’s not the kind of car that needs an adaptive suspension as found on some rivals.

The Sport Hybrid takes the 3.5-liter V6 and combines it with three electric motors, two 27-kw motors in the rear differential to drive each rear wheel, and the third for the front wheels, thus all-wheel drive. The powerplant makes a combined 377 horsepower and 341 pound-feet of torque. It responds quickly, and accelerates with the thrust of an electric car; the zoom feel endless. The electric motors seem to make the shifts of the 7-speed dual-clutch transmission smoother.

The power perpetually shifts between wheels, as determined by sensors, for optimum traction and grip, amounting to torque vectoring. We found the traction in rain with the all-wheel drive outstanding.

The steering in the 2018 RLX Sport Hybrid that we drove felt heavier than the 2017 RLX models with V6 engines we have driven. The light touch at higher speeds was gone. It remained light at low speeds, thanks to that rear-wheel steering, but got heavier and stayed that way on the highway, including in corners.

The well-tuned suspension on the hybrid is excellent at damping a wide range of bumps, again without being electronically or otherwise adaptive. The creamy ride comes on soft springs and absorbent tires.

Summary

The Acura RLX is a smooth and comfortable sedan for the daily commute. It doesn’t stand out in the class, however, with unexciting looks, a dated, uninteresting cabin, and a less-than-thrilling V6. Ride quality is great, handling is benign. The Sport Hybrid stands out for its mechanical ingenuity.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
