Acura has announced the launch of the RLX Sport Hybrid across the United States, where the cheapest version of the model has been priced from 59, 950 USD.

Acura’s newest creation is the RLX Sport Hybrid and this was supposed to go on sale ever since this spring, but for no obvious reason, it has been delayed. The company blamed a mysterious “technical” issue which has been apparently fixed and this has allowed it to launch the model. The entry-level version is priced from 59,950 USD and it is getting the LED headlights, smoked chrome front grille, 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped in all-season Michelin tires and others.

The interior design of the model is coming with items such as the GPS navigation system, the tri-zone automatic climate control system, the heads-up display, the Milano leather seats, the Forward Collision Warning system, the Lane Keeping Assist or the Blind Spot Information. The Advance variant, costing 65,950 USD, is adding the heated rear seats, the heated and ventilated front seats, a premium audio system, Adaptive cruise control and several other items.

Power to the Acura RLX Sport Hybrid is being provided by a 3.5 liter V6 engine and a three-motor hybrid system. The model is also getting the SH-AWD (Super Handling All-wheel Drive) system. The total output produced by the hybrid assembly stands at 377 HP (281 kW) and 461 Nm (341 lb-ft) of torque. The Acura RLX Sport Hybrid is already available for order.
