The intuitive luxury sedan

2016 RLX

A well-designed car is able to change how you feel when you get behind the wheel, and the 2016 Acura RLX is designed to do just that. This sport sedan takes Chicagoland drivers beyond simple luxury and into a whole new world of driving.



Powerful, efficient, unique

Whether you choose the standard 3.5L V6 engine or the RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD, your new luxury sedan will have the power and agility to match its head-turning style. The standard 310-hp V6 engine will be plenty of power for the average driver, but the RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD changes the way many people think of hybrid sedans, kicking out up to 377 combined horsepower and utilizing three electric motors to give the driver new levels of control.

    3.5L V6 Engine

    Every RLX has a 3.5L V6 engine under the hood, rated at 310 hp and incorporating Variable Cylinder Management and Direct Fuel Injection for improved performance and efficiency. The standard front-wheel drive RLX sports 272 lb-ft of torque in addition to its 310 hp and earns an EPA-estimated 31 highway and 20 city mpg.**

  • 2016 Acura RLX

    Sport Hybrid Powertrain

    Take the 3.5L V6 engine and add on three electric motors – one for each of the rear wheels and one in the transmission housing – and you have the Acura RLX Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive. Combined engine power tops out at 377 hp, and despite the boosted power, this hybrid engine keeps a remarkable fuel economy of an EPA-estimated 32 highway and 28 city mpg.**

  • 2016 Acura RLX

    Variable Cylinder Management

    The days of the gas guzzling V6 engines are long gone thanks to technology like Acura’s Variable Cylinder Management. When you’re cruising at top speed, you don’t need all six cylinders firing, and the RLX knows it. Variable Cylinder Management lets the engine switch to running on as few as three cylinders to conserve fuel.

  • 2016 Acura RLX

    Drive-by-Wire Throttle System

    The RLX is built to be one of the most responsive sedans on the road, and Acura’s Drive-by-Wire throttle system brings throttle sensitivity that varies based on different driving conditions. The result is an RLX that feels comfortable on the road, any road.

  • 2016 Acura RLX

    Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters

    It can be tough to give up the ways of the stick shift, and Acura’s state-of-the-art 6-speed automatic transmission gives you a compromise that lets you choose between the practicality of an automatic and the control of a manual. SportShift paddle shifters are mounted on the steering wheel, letting you change gears with just a flick of the wrist. Choose between “Drive” or “Sport” modes depending on whether you want smooth gear changes focusing on fuel economy (Drive) or swift gear changes for high performance (Sport).

  • 2016 Acura RLX

    Agile Handling Assist

    By using Acura’s Vehicle Stability Assist system, Agile Handling Assist is able to actively improve the handling of the RLX, braking individual wheels during potential understeer or oversteer and helping you trace a line through a tight curve with minimal effort.


Blending style and performance

The RLX spent enough hours in the wind tunnel that it’s sure to feel at home in the Windy City. Sculpted with aerodynamics, noise reduction, and increased fuel efficiency in mind, the RLX has a look unlike anything else on the road – it helps this stunning sport sedan achieve incredible fuel economy numbers and look great while doing it.

    Jewel Eye LED Headlights

    Eight LED lights shine through 16 lenses to focus these brighter, whiter headlights for long-range visibility. Even when turned off, the lenses give the headlights their distinctive jewel-like look, letting everyone know that you’re driving one of the most stylish cars on the road: an Acura.

  • 2016 Acura RLX

    Multi-angle Rearview Camera

    Shift into reverse and the RLX automatically engages its rearview camera system. The in-dash LCD screen displays one of three views, letting you alternate between standard, top-down, and wide-angle for peace of mind when backing up. The RLX also has a surround-view camera available for a 360-degree look at what’s around your vehicle before leaving your parking spot or driveway.

  • 2016 Acura RLX

    Power Side Mirrors

    Every aspect of the RLX is engineered for excellence, including the mirrors. When you shift into reverse, they automatically angle themselves downward to give you a better look at what’s behind your sedan. During winter months, a heating element in each mirror switches on whenever you engage your rear defogger, and memory settings let you switch back to familiar mirror positions after you’ve handed the keys to someone else.


Driving in the lap of luxury

The 2016 Acura RLX is engineered to fit your needs, adjusting the seating, side mirrors, steering wheel and more to your personal preferences with just the push of a button. Features like a heads-up display and satellite-linked navigation system join with traditional luxury amenities like leather upholstery and heated front seating for the ultimate in comfort and connectivity.

    Front Seating

    Acura paid extensive attention to the seating of their flagship sedan, knowing that no matter how powerful or high-tech a car is, it’s no fun to drive if you can’t get comfortable. Perforated Milano leather, power-adjustable seat settings, and heating and ventilation make the driver’s seat so comfortable you won’t want to leave.

  • 2016 Acura RLX


    The design DNA of the RLX can be seen in every inch of the interior, from its leather-trimmed door panels to it sweeping curves to the dual-cove instrument panel. The advanced touchscreen interface and navigation system are integrated into the design, feeling just as much like a part of the dash as your vents or glovebox.

  • 2016 Acura RLX

    Heads-Up Display (HUD)

    This transparent display projects up onto the windshield right beneath your line of sight, giving you access to important vehicle information without ever having to take your eyes off the road. A digital speedometer, power distribution monitor, tachometer, and more can be broadcast right onto the windshield.

  • 2016 Acura RLX


    With a full VGA 8-inch touchscreen interface, Acura’s standard navigation system brings you crystal clear high-res maps with turn-by-turn directions to get you where you need to go. Real time traffic monitoring and rerouting takes this navigation system a step above the rest, helping you stay ahead of traffic jams and construction.

  • 2016 Acura RLX

    GPS-linked Climate Control

    Tri-zone automatic climate control lets you adjust the temperature settings for the driver, front passenger, and rear passengers separately. After setting the ideal temperature, the RLX does the rest. It even has GPS-linked climte control to track the position of the sun and adjust climate control accordingly.

  • 2016 Acura RLX

    Voice Recognition Software

    Keep your hands on the wheel and stay in control of your technology with the standard voice recognition software. Hundreds of different commands put you in control of audio, climate, navigation and more without ever needing to lift a finger.


Safe from frame to finish

A solid foundation is necessary for all things in life, including a luxury sport sedan. Acura starts the RLX off with the next-gen Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure, adds on seven airbags, five three-point seat belts, and some of the most advanced in auto safety technology, making this car one of the safest in the city of Chicago.

    Braking Systems

    You might not want to slow down when you’re behind the wheel of the RLX, but when you need to come to a stop, the four-wheel disc brakes are backed up by a series of sophisticated electronic systems to optimize braking performance. You’ll experience a firm feeling in the pedal at any speed thanks to a precision modulated linear brake response.

  • 2016 Acura RLX

    Body Structure Design

    The ACE body structure features a series of connected elements that are meant to redistribute crash energy throughout the vehicle and prevent it from being concentrated in just one place. This helps reduce the overall risk of injury to driver and passenger alike and more evenly disperses the forces between all vehicles in a collision.

  • 2016 Acura RLX

    Child Safety

    For families seeking a sporty new sedan, the RLX does the job, giving you all of the benefits of a luxury sport sedan with the peace of mind needed for child safety. LATCH-compliant safety seat anchors let you secure your son or daughter in their child seat. The windows and moonroof feature auto-reverse settings that prevent fingers from getting pinched, and airbag sensors know to deactivate an airbag if there is not a full-size adult in the front seat.

  • Acura Blind Spot Information System

    Blind Spot Information System

    Before making a lane change, the RLX’s Blind Spot Information (BSI) system can let you know if you’ll be merging into an empty lane or not. If the radar system detects a vehicle in the adjacent lane in the RLX’s “alert zone,” indicators will appear on both the windshield pillar and the multi-information display in the gauge cluster. Should the driver signal when one of these indicators is on, it will flash and the RLX will issue an audio warning to advise you against merging.

  • Acura Collision Mitigation

    Collision Mitigation Braking

    Each RLX model has Collision Mitigation Braking to help reduce the severity of a frontal impact, perhaps even avoiding it entirely. A radar system determines the distance and closing speed of objects ahead of the RLX, issuing warnings or automatically applying the brakes if you don’t slow down.

  • 2016 Acura RDX

    Tire Pressure Monitoring System

    Under-inflated tires can lead to uneven wear, making them a significant safety hazard. The RLX has a built-in Tire Pressure Monitoring System that alerts you when any tires are below 75% inflated to help your tires wear evenly and reduce the risk of blowouts.
