2016 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid Exterior

2016 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid Overview (See Available Styles)

The RLX is Acura's flagship sedan, and it's offered as a conventionally powered gas car and as a hybrid. The RLX rides the line between midsize and full-size sedans, with generous interior volume in what's roughly a midsize wrapper. As such, the RLX competes with the likes of the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series, Lexus GS and Lincoln MKZ.

New for 2016
The available AcuraWatch active safety system includes distance-pacing cruise control, forward collision warning with collision mitigation braking, lane departure warning and prevention, blind spot warning and rear cross-traffic alert.

The Advance Package now includes a surround-view camera system. It uses four cameras to show different views around the car, and it can combine those views to create a bird's-eye view of the area around the car.

Acura has also revised the RLX's suspension for a smoother ride. The shocks and springs are softer, and the rear stabilizer bar isn't as stiff.
