Test Driving the 2014 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid

May 23rd, 2014 by

While we don’t yet have the incredible Sport Hybrid take on the 2014 Acura RLX in stock at Chicagoland Acura Dealers, critics have been able to log some quality time behind the wheel of the new car, and they have some incredible things to say about it. As if we weren’t already excited enough for it’s arrival, right?

What sets the RLX Sport Hybrid apart from the standard RLX—and the rest of what’s on the road? Read on to find out.

A Truly Outstanding Hybrid

While both the standard RLX and the RLX Sport Hybrid feature Acura’s Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS) system, the Sport Hybrid combines it with Acura’s famous Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) for one of the best fusions of performance, control, and handling that we have ever seen, letting drivers carve an almost professional-grade line through the toughest of curves.

What good would all of that be if you didn’t have an incredible powertrain under the hood, though? Although some drivers might balk at the idea of an “impressive” hybrid, the fact is that the RLX Sport Hybrid actually offers up more power than the standard RLX—377 hp from a hybrid! With one-touch gear selection from the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, this Acura isn’t just carving a line through sharp curves; it’s carving a line through the competition.

Rounding out the wonderful performance aspects of the RLX Sport Hybrid, Acura gives you the finest in luxury and technology amenities as well, making it truly a force to be reckoned with, giving a new definition to the hybrid sedan.
