What You Will Like

Distinguishing oneself among the crowded luxury sedan segment is not easy. The Acura RLX's refinement and capabilities are among the many virtues that let the RLX more than holds its own. A powerful V6 and smooth-shifting transmission provide spirited performance, while Acura's Precision All-Wheel Steer system gives the RLX a sure-footedness not found in front-wheel-drive cars. With loads of impressive amenities and safety features and a base price under $50,000, the RLX gives buyers a contender to consider against competitors like the BMW 5-Series, Audi A6, Cadillac CTS and Mercedes-Benz E350.

What's New For 2016

For 2016, the Acura RLX base trim has been discontinued, and 19-inch wheels are now standard and mounted to an improved suspension and slightly tweaked chassis. Most notably, the RLX now includes the AcuraWatch suite of aids, like adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, collision warning, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross traffic alert. Later in the model year, the RLX Sport Hybrid will debut, featuring a 3-motor hybrid system capable of 377 horsepower, with EPA estimated fuel economy at 30 mpg combined, compared with the 24 mpg combined figure for standard RLXs.

Introduction

The Acura RLX is a polite front-wheel-drive sedan with subtle luxury. It’s not flashy nor especially powerful for a class that includes the Lincoln MKS and Cadillac XTS. It’s handsome but understated outside, not slinky like the Audi A7 or Jaguar XF. It’s classy and understated inside. It’s well composed. There’s a smooth growl from its V6 engine, with acceleration from 310 horsepower that’s steady not neck-snapping, unlike the 429-horsepower Hyundai Genesis, another car in its class.

For 2016, the RLX suspension has been retuned with softer shocks and springs, and 19-inch wheels are now standard. RLX was all-new for 2014, replacing the RL sedan.

The 2016 Acura RLX leads its class in fuel mileage, with 20/31 mpg City/Highway and 24 mpg Combined.

Safety is a focus, including a driver knee airbag and Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Warning systems, all standard equipment. RLX gets five stars from the federal government in every crash-test category, as well as Top Safety Pick in every category from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

The AcuraWatch system includes road-departure mitigation that uses steering correction when a camera detects wandering. This system can help drivers who aren’t paying attention, but found it annoying. This system will also steer the car at lower speeds behind another car, meaning stop-and-go traffic. But the calibrated following distance is so wide that other cars cut in front, and then it slams on the brakes. AcuraWatch is not standard, so you can avoid it or switch it off every time you start the car.

The RLX Sport Hybrid model leaps fuel mileage to 28/32 mpg City/Highway, while being considerably more powerful and handling better, and equipped with all-wheel drive. RLX Sport Hybrid uses three electric motors and lithium iron batteries along with a 3.5-liter V6.

Lineup

The Acura RLX retails for a base price of $50,950 MSRP and comes fully equipped, including AcuraLink. For another $4000 there’s a Technology package, including fancier leather and the AcuraWatch safety suite including adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, forward collision warning, collision mitigation braking, lane-keeping assist, lane-departure warning, a multi-view rear camera with dynamic guidelines, road-departure mitigation, and cross-traffic monitoring. The Advance Package ups the price another $5500 and adds all the fancy stuff including a 14-speaker Krell audio system with crystal clear sound. The Sport Hybrid price is announced but it’ll be well over $60k.

Walkaround

The RLX is subtle and graceful, with smooth and handsome lines that suggest muscle at the front fenders. It’s also nondescript and forgettable, a car that blends into the background. The only risk that Acura took with the styling is in the jeweled LED headlights, which don’t rescue the bland front end with an Acura boomerang of chrome on it. It doesn’t measure up to the individuality in the styling of the Jaguar and Cadillac it competes against.

Interior

The interior is like the exterior, elegant but uninspired. The materials are point-perfect, but the design lacks the sense of drama that’s required in cars like this, never mind the multiple shimmering screens. Refinement is down pat but seems orchestrated. The cabin is nicely detailed, a functional place to perform the tasks of driving, although those multiple screens mean multiple guesses. The musical jingle that plays when the door is opened is a rare display of emotion from Acura.

There’s good passenger room in rectangular spaces that read more like building architecture than car design. It’s not modern like an Audi or opulent like a Jaguar, it’s in between. The front seats have the best leather we’ve ever seen in an Acura, and fit like large executive desk chairs. Acura says the shoulder room is better than the German cars, without mentioning Cadillac, Lincoln or for that matter the Chrysler 300.

Large rear door openings make it easy to slide in and out of the wide and long seats if you’re not tall; the sloped roofline makes tall folks duck, and rub their heads on the ceiling. There’s less shoulder room back there than we expect. The rear seats don’t recline like the big German sedans can do.

There’s a lot of storage for small items. The center console is wide without taking up people space; its sliding lid opens from either side. The trunk is a different story; the floor is flat, and that’s good, but its 14.9 cubic feet is a couple gym bags smaller than the Lincoln MKS. The available Krell audio system takes up some more space, and the Sport Hybrid’s battery pack cuts the volume to 12.0 cubic feet.

Driving Impressions

The front-wheel-drive RLX doesn’t use an electronic active suspension that’s common in the class, it sticks to your shock absorbers, links and springs. It’s a mildly cushy cruiser with only token amounts of feedback from the road. The retuned 2016 suspension includes upgraded dampers, softer springs and rear stabilizer bar, different rear bump stops, and 19-inch wheels. In the front, the shock mounts have been relocated. The goal was to lower the harshness, noise, and vibration, as well as softening the ride without compromising the handling.

The RLX features a system called Precision All-Wheel Steer, or P-AWS. The rear wheels turn up to two degrees in the opposite direction of the front wheels, making cornering quicker and adding stability that’s felt mostly when changing lanes on the freeway. You can really feel it on a slalom course.

The speed-sensitive electric power steering has a light touch around town. In the twisties the steering adds resistance, as the chassis leans into corners without drama. It handles rough roads with little fuss.

The engine’s 310 horsepower and 272 pound-feet of torque are far from tops in the class, but the acceleration is still ample. The engine wakes up with some intake snarl when you floor it at 3000 rpm, with 0-60 times of six seconds about the same as the Lexus GS, which feels faster because of its peakier powerband. The RLX is steady.

The six-speed automatic transmission has paddles and a sport mode. Downshifts are less invisible, while upshifts are very smooth. Other sedans in the class use eight-speed transmissions, for example the Chrysler 300.

If you need higher performance, the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD model is your call, with 377 hp and 377 lb-ft of torque. In fact, a version of its special new three-motor hybrid system can be found in the future Acura NSX supercar. The basic 3.5-liter V6 is mated to a new seven-speed dual-clutch automated manual gearbox that has a 35-kW motor built in. Its all-wheel drive comes out of the two 27-kW motors in the rear differential.

It’s a more exotic and exciting driving experience than you get in the front-wheel-drive RLX. It’s extremely responsive to the throttle. Add torque vectoring to the handling, and you’ve got something that can feel like it defies physics, by adding power at individual rear wheels to help steer the car. It’s the SH (Super Handling) part of the AWD.

Summary

The RLX is competent but unexciting, inside and out. It’s not a car for extroverts. Its V6 engine offers the best fuel mileage in the class. The rear-wheel steering is a special feature that sets it apart from other front-wheel-drive sedans. The Sport Hybrid is the model that boasts performance.

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.
