From time to time, the release of a new vehicle doesn’t only mean the addition of a few new features or powertrain enhancements; sometimes it means a complete overhaul or rebranding of a vehicle to make it even better than previous models. This is exactly what the 2018 Acura RLX has done with its most recent redesign. Keep reading to learn more about what you can expect from the new model.

A Different Direction

With the redesign comes a lot of new territory, more than we could possibly cover right now, so we’re going to stick with a few of our favorite upgrades for the 2018 Acura RLX. As Acura takes a turn with its new Precision Crafted Performance design initiatives, the new RLX is much more focused on showing its luxury sports sedan looks and performance. It hits the nail on the head with the new look, which includes a more chiseled hood, newly designed wheels, newly designed LED taillights, a gloss black rear diffuser, and dual exhaust finishers. To further enhance the vehicle’s performance potential, the 2018 RLX will share technology found on the NSX supercar called Sport Hybrid Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive. With help from this system, the RLX is easily Acura’s highest-performing sedan.

There has also been a significant increase in safety and security technology with this redesign. Standard on the new model will be the AcuraWatch system, but with the addition of traffic jam assist, which works hand-in-hand with adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow to reduce stress to the driver in high traffic situations. From what we’ve seen of the newly designed sedan so far, we can only expect true greatness from this upcoming release.
