The Acura RLX has become the flagship that has helped define what a luxury full-sized sedan should be. The high-quality features found in the RLX over the years has helped shape the entire industry, and it doesn’t look like Acura is happy with the status quo. This only means great things for consumers as its being reported the 2018 Acura RLX will be even more luxurious, offer more power, and have some of the best-in-class features than any other 2018 luxury sedan.
The 2018 RLX is certain to be back once again, and we’re already getting plenty of questions from consumers and analysts alike. It’s hard not to appreciate the innovative engineering of previous models which only adds to the huge expectations that are already beginning to mount.
The comprehensive take on the new 2018 Acura RLX specs, features, price, and the release date is the most in-depth preview you’ll find anywhere.
2018 Acura RLX Specs and Features
Many are saying the specs and features of the new RLX will be significantly better than the current model improving upon many complaints of the 2017 model. Such features including a folding backseat, more rear-seat legroom, and a slightly larger frame should appeal to current and new prospective Acura RLX consumers.
We’re hearing a lot of emphases will be placed on the 2018 Acura RLX Hybrid model which will be featured in both FWD and AWD. Offering the same luxury features including premium leather, infotainment technology, great economy, aggressive styling, and a comprehensive technology package are only some of the reasons why.
Some of Acura’s trademark features in the 2018 RLX should include Acura Link, premium leather trip option, turn by turn guidance, multi-functional color display, GPS navigation, turn by turn guidance, LED-illuminated door handles, 12-way passenger seating, Bluetooth with hands free link, multi-view backup camera, Pandora, satellite radio, and much more.
The engine specs found under the hood are likely to include a 3.5 liter 6 cylinder engine boasting at least 310-hp along with a 6 speed automatic and auto-manual transmission. It sounds like the gas mileage will be quite comparable with other flagship sedans coming in at 21MPG/city and 32MPG/highway.
