Technology Offerings

When it comes to technologically advanced features, the RLX offers various amenities not found onboard top rivals like the 2016 Audi A6, the 2016 BMW 5 Series 528i, the 2016 Lexus GS 350, and the 2016 Mercedes-Benz E350.

For instance, an advanced accident avoidance system comes standard in the RLX base model but is only available as an optional upgrade for an extra cost in the BMW 5 Series and the Lexus GS 350.

Adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow also comes standard in the RLX base model, gauging the distance between the RLX and other vehicles and adjusting accordingly to maintain a safe following distance. Adaptive cruise control is only offered as an extra-cost, optional upgrade in the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series 528i, Lexus GS 350, and Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 base models.

For the base price, the RLX further features a standard multi-view rear camera, which only comes as an optional upgrade in the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series 528i, and Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350.

The RLX base trim also provides a standard 15GB hard drive, while the Audi A6 and Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 base models each only offers a 10GB hard drive and only as an optional upgrade, and the Lexus GS 350 base trim does not have a hard drive at all.

A telematics system further comes standard in the RLX base model but is only offered as an optional upgrade in the Audi A6 base trim, and satellite radio is another RLX standard amenity that the BMW 5 Series 528i and Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 base models only offer as optional upgrades.
