The 2014 Acura RLX Hits Chicagoland Showrooms

March 24th, 2013 by

Michael Accavitti, vice president of national marketing, declared the 2014 Acura RLX to be the “best car Acura has ever produced,” and we can’t wait to see them on the streets of Chicago. A fusion of modern technology, luxury, and performance, the RLX is a car of the future, but it’s available for you here today.

Just what is it that’s earned this stylish sedan such praise? Read on to find out what’s in store for drivers who get behind the wheel of the new RLX.

Everything You Expect and More

The RLX has all of the technology that driers expect out of a mid-size sedan worthy of the “luxury” title, offering the latest in auto technology alongside creature comforts befitting a top-of-the-line vehicle.

Here’s a look at everything that’s available when it comes to state-of-the-art technology in this new Acura:

  • Bluetooth phone and audio streaming
  • SMS text to speech capabilities
  • Digital music storage
  • HD Radio
  • iPod interface

To keep you comfortable behind the wheel, leatherette upholstery, eight way heated power seating, and automatic climate control all come standard.

If that’s not enough, you can upgrade with features such as a 14-speaker ELS sound system, adaptive cruise control, a collision mitigation system, front and rear parking sensors, ventilated seats, and more.

More than just looks and comfort, the RLX has it going on under the hood too, with a 3.5L V6 capable of 310 hp – more than enough to cruise down Lake Shore Drive with the wind in your hair. Later in the year, a Sport Hybrid version of the RLX will be available with 370 hp for some extra growl.

Not only is the engine powerful, but it runs quietly and smoothly, feeling like a luxury sedan through the smoothest highways and the roughest streets. With precise steering and a rear-wheel steering system, you’ll have no trouble taking tight corners without losing much speed.
