Acura unveils the 2014 RLX flagship sedan at the Los Angeles Auto Show

Honda’s luxury brand Acura today unveiled the all-new 2014 RLX sedan at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Acura labels its new flagship model as „the most powerful, spacious, and technologically advanced Acura sedan, ever”. The 2014 RLX is powered by an all-new direct-injection engine, has a lightweight body structure, and all-wheel steering, with all of these new features favorising driving dynamics and fuel efficiency.

The 2014 Acura RLX is powered by an all-new 310-horsepower direct-injected 3.5-liter i-VTEC V-6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management that is expected to deliver fuel economy ratings of 20/31/24 mpg (city/highway/combined). The engine delivers 272 lb-ft (368 Nm) of torque.

The RLX is equipped with Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS), the world’s first technology to feature independent and continuous control of the left and right rear-wheel steering (toe) angles. This helps to achieve better handling agility, high- and low-speed maneuverability and more precision.

While the exterior design remained faithful to that of the 2013 Acura RLX Concept Sedan, the interior reminds of the 2013 Honda Accord, especially in the center console area. The RLX is loaded with equipment such as AcuraLink connectivity system with AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic featuring freeway traffic and all-new surface street conditions, Lane Keeping Assist System and Forward Collision Warning safety systems, and new driver-assistive technologies such as Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, Agile Handling Assist dynamic braking technology and Jewel Eye™ LED headlights.

The 2014 Acura RLX will go on sale in the U.S. in the spring of 2013 and will be available in five grades – the RLX, RLX with Navigation, RLX with Technology package, the RLX with Krell Audio package and the top-of-the-line RLX with Advance package. Pricing will be announced closer to launch.

Later in 2013, Acura will also launch a more powerful version with 370 horsepower and the new Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive technology.
