Premium Luxury Sedan

2018 RLX

If you value a posh interior, an array of standard technologies, and elite safety ratings, the 2018 Acura RLX is the luxury sedan for you. Taking connectivity to a whole new level, everything from your tunes to your temperature can be influenced by the outside world, boasting features such as GPS-linked automatic climate control, Bluetooth streaming, Pandora compatibility, and the AcuraLink app. Newly refreshed for the 2018 model year, Acura has enhanced every aspect of its flagship sedan to keep the RLX near the top of its class.



Throw Caution to the Wind

Whether you desire high-revving power or responsive handling from your luxury sedan, the 2018 RLX provides the best of both worlds. Under the hood, Michigan drivers can choose from either a 310-hp, 3.5-liter V6 with Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS) or the 377-hp, Sport Hybrid 3-motor system with Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD). Front and rear stabilizer bars keep the RLX composed through every turn, while other standard features like Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) and Agile Handling Assist improve performance during unpredictable weather conditions. When it comes to cornering, throw caution to the wind thanks to a 4-wheel independent double-wishbone front and multilink rear suspension that borrows characteristics from its NSX sibling.

    Sport Hybrid System

    The 377 horsepower Sport Hybrid shares supercar technology with the NSX for an immediate, powerful driving experience unmatched in the segment. Its Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system consists of a powerful V6 engine and three electric motors: a high-output electric front motor paired with a rapid-shifting 7-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission, and an electric rear Twin Motor Unit for individual, instant torque vectoring.

    Precision All-Wheel Steer

    Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS) takes advantage of untapped steering potential from the rear wheels. The system intuitively supports the driver and responds to steering input with immediate adjustments. This world’s-first, intelligent system adjusts the steering angle of each rear wheel independently, for increased agility and stability in corners during lane changes and braking.

  • 2018 Acura RLX Vehicle Stability Assist

    Vehicle Stability Assist

    Through the use of an array of sensors and ABS, Vehicle Stability Assist can reduce the dangers of over/under steering and loss of traction by applying brakes at each wheel as needed and when necessary, reducing engine power. The response is so quick that the instability may be corrected before the driver even knows it’s occurring.

  • 2018 Acura RLX Agile Handling Assist

    Agile Handling Assist

    Agile Handling Assist uses the components of the Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) system to help improve handling. While VSA steps in to brake individual wheels to avoid oversteer or understeer, the Agile Handling Assist uses active braking, usually on an inside wheel to help the driver smoothly and easily trace the desired line through a curve with smaller steering inputs.

  • 2018 Acura RLX Electronic Gear Selector

    Electronic Gear Selector

    All RLX models now come with a sleek, convenient Electronic Gear Selector in the center console. The “by wire” transmission uses pushbuttons for Drive, Neutral, and Park, and pull-levers for Reverse and the Parking Brake.

  • Michigan Acura Dealers

    Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters

    Standard with both the 10-speed and 7-speed transmissions, Sequential SportShift paddle shifters give you the best of two worlds – providing the convenience of precise and intuitive automatic shifting as well as shift-for-yourself control.


Memorable First Impression

Sophisticated style and standard luxury equipment abound on the redesigned 2018 RLX. An acoustic glass windshield and side glass keep road noise outside the vehicle where it belongs. The power moonroof takes in fresh air and sunlight during those beautiful, Michigan spring days. Rain-sensing windshield wipers are a hassle-free way to increase visibility during thunderstorms. But the real story here is the reimagined exterior. Acura’s Jewel Eye LED headlights are a mainstay, but they’re now joined by the signature Diamond Pentagon Grille and a newly sculpted hood for a memorable first impression. The rear fascia is equally impressive with far-reaching LED taillights, LED “pipe” brake lights, integrated chrome exhaust outlets, and a gloss black rear diffuser. Needless to say, it will be difficult to blend in on your daily commute.

    Jewel Eye LED Headlights

    The Jewel Eye LED headlights carve out their own space in the RLX profile. Brighter, whiter, and longer-lasting than traditional headlights, they cast a precisely focused beam far into the future.

    Diamond Pentagon Grille

    A centerpiece of the RLX is the signature Diamond Pentagon grille. The bold shape with intricate details results in a clean appearance that signals an uptick in attitude.

  • 2018 Acura RLX Contrast Wheels

    Contrast Wheels

    All RLX models sport 19-inch wheels. An exclusive design for P-AWS and Sport Hybrid SH-AWD models, each feature a combination black paints and machined finish for a high-contrast appearance.


Ahead of Its Time

Technologically speaking, the cabin of the 2018 RLX is truly ahead of its time. From comfort amenities and entertainment options to navigation and smartphone integration, this luxury sedan keeps occupants connected to the outside world at all times. Driver and passengers alike will appreciate the plush, Milano leather seating, but comfort is taken to a whole new level with GPS-linked climate control, which actually adjusts the cabin’s temperature according to the sun’s position and intensity. Siri voice recognition and Bluetooth HandsFreeLink ensure that you receive all text messages and emails safely, while navigation and entertainment sources can be found on dual, high-resolution display screens. And speaking of entertainment, the RLX comes standard equipped with a USB audio interface, Bluetooth streaming, Pandora compatibility, SiriusXM satellite radio, and more. For added driver awareness, the AcuraLink smartphone app allows RLX owners to access vehicle location and diagnostic information with the touch of a button.

  • 2018 Acura RLX Front Cabin

    Quality Cabin

    Standard on all models are seating surfaces and interior trim with remarkably soft, perforated Milano Leather. Both front seats have 12-way adjustment, which includes a lumbar support that adjusts up and down, as well as in and out. Four distinct levels of softness and firmness are designed into the seats to provide an ideal combination of comfort and support.

  • 2018 Acura RLX Smart Cabin Storage

    Smart Cabin Storage

    A soft, double-hinged armrest enables easy storage access for both driver and front passenger. The illuminated center console also has a convenient sliding smartphone tray with easy access to USB and charging ports.

    Complete Comfort

    Using the same packaging techniques it employs on its smaller vehicles, at 38.8 inches, Acura gave the RLX rear legroom that’s equivalent to most competing brands’ full-size luxury sedans. Rear occupants will also enjoy their own climate control zone, which they can set with controls behind the front center console.

  • Michigan Acura Dealers

    Head-Up Display

    The Head-Up Display projects a transparent, easy-to-see image onto the lower portion of the windshield allowing you to view key vehicle information while keeping your eyes on the road. The primary display information is a digital speedometer reading which can be accompanied by a display for anything from navigation directions to Adaptive Cruise Control.

  • 2018 Acura RLX On Demand Multi-Use Display

    On Demand Multi-Use Display

    Acura has long been at the forefront of audio and information technology. But as the number of features have grown, so have the number of buttons on the center panel. The RLX designers, however, devised an intuitively easy way to use a touch screen with all the controls you need at any given time. What could have resulted in over 30 buttons is now a mere nine.

  • Michigan Acura Dealers

    Smartphone Connectivity

    With a compatible phone, a simple one-time pairing process using the navigation screen is all it takes to connect your phone to the car. Apple and Android smartphones can even download the AcuraLink app to make pairing, among other functions, even easier. As long as your phone’s Bluetooth is enabled, the car will automatically reconnect your phone without it ever leaving your pocket or purse.


Raising the Bar

How did the 2018 Acura RLX earn the highest possible ratings from the NHTSA in front crash tests, side crash tests, rollover testing, and overall vehicle safety? It could be the state-of-the-art ACE body structure, which increases occupant protection through a network of structural elements that distribute crash energy more evenly during a front end collision. Perhaps its the Supplemental Restraint System, complete with dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags (SRS), front side airbags, side curtain airbags, and a driver’s knee airbag. Or maybe it’s the fact that every RLX comes standard equipped with AcuraWatch, a suite of driver assistive technologies and safety features. One thing’s for certain: the 2018 RLX has raised the bar for what vehicle safety should look like within the luxury sedan segment.

  • 2018 Acura RLX Blind Spot Information System

    Blind Spot Information System

    The RLX is equipped with the Acura Blind spot information (BSI) System that can assist you when making lane changes. If the BSI detects a vehicle in the next lane’s alert zone while going over 20 MPH, an indicator appears on the side mirror. If you signal in the direction of that vehicle, the mirror indicator flashes and a warning beep sounds.

  • 2018 Acura RLX Collision Mitigation Braking System

    Collision Mitigation Braking System

    Powered by a radar transmitter mounted in the grille trim, the Collision Mitigation Braking System determines the distance and closing speed of detected objects that lie directly ahead. If you do not take action to reduce speed, models with the Advance Package automatically tug at your seat belt as a warning. All models will begin light braking.

  • 2018 Acura RLX Lane Keeping Assist System

    Lane Keeping Assist System

    Lane Keeping Assist System works proactively to keep the vehicle not only inside the lane, but in the center of the lane. If you guide the car out of a detected lane without signaling your intention to exit it, the system will slightly tug the wheel and guide the car to the center of the lane. Though the steering creates a slight tug, you can easily hold your course if you desire, as the system will not take control from you.

  • 2018 Acura RLX Road Departure Mitigation

    Road Departure Mitigation

    To help make sure that you only take the RLX off the pavement when you want to, all RLX models are equipped with Road Departure Mitigation, which can identify objects such as trees or parked cars beyond the side of the road and help you avoid them. When the system detects the RLX is about to leave the road, it warns the driver with an MID warning message, an amber head-up warning and a tightening of the seat belt.

  • Michigan Acura Dealers

    Adaptive Cruise Control

    As with a conventional system, the available Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with low-speed follow system allows you to set a desired speed, but it will also keep a set interval behind a car detected ahead of you so you can enjoy cruise control even in light traffic conditions. While cruising, engage the ACC, and the system will prompt you to select a short, medium or long interval from a vehicle detected ahead.

  • 2018 Acura RLX Traffic Jam Assist

    Traffic Jam Assist

    At low speeds, the all-new Traffic Jam Assist is designed to help keep the RLX centered in a detected lane by applying progressive, precise steering inputs. Coupled with Adaptive Cruise Control, Traffic Jam Assist reduces driver workload and can activate from a complete stop.
