2016 Acura RLXIf you’re looking for a luxury car in the Chicagoland area, you might be looking at the 2016 Mercedes-Benz E350. But does this sedan give you the features you expect on a premium luxury vehicle? The 2016 Acura RLX beats out the Benz for standard features any day. See what you’ll get included on the RLX that would be a costly extra or just not available on the E350.

Satellite Navigation and Radio

The 2016 Acura RLX includes an in-vehicle navigation system that comes with your AcuraLink telematics. It uses hard-drive data storage for a quick response viewed through a high-resolution 8-inch screen, and includes special displays for tricky maneuvers like freeway ramps. It also comes with an AcuraLink real-time traffic feature, which provides information about traffic flow as it happens and reroutes you when needed. It’s easy to get where you need to go with the AcuraLink navigation system. This also enables your Sirius XM satellite radio.

Voice-Activated Controls

The 2016 Acura RLX has plenty of features to keep you connected and comfortable, and you can control many of them just by speaking. Voice-activated commands keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road so you’ll never have to take your attention away for even a moment, making it safer to control your vehicle’s many systems. You can use voice commands to place and take hands-free phone calls through Bluetooth, control the music and audio, give commands to the navigation system, and even change the temperature in your car.

Heated Seats and Legroom

In addition to a comprehensive suite of telematics systems, the Acura RLX treats you to a luxurious and comfortable cabin. You’ll get heated front seats as a standard feature for your comfort on those chilly days. The rear boasts almost 39 cubic inches of legroom, giving your rear passengers more room to stretch out than the Mercedes-Benz E350’s paltry 35 inches of legroom. When you get the Acura RLX, you’ll get comfort for all.

Safety Features

The 2016 Acura RLX is packed with standard safety features that can prevent fatal crashes. The rearview camera with backup guidelines activates when you switch your car into reverse, and gives you a clear view of what’s behind you so you can avoid collisions with other cars, pedestrians, or any other obstacles. You’ll also get adaptive cruise control, which uses radar sensors to keep track of the distance of the car in front of you. When the car in front of you slows down, the cruise control will also slow your car to maintain a safe following distance.
