The Acura RLX sits atop the Acura range by offering unrivaled comfort, safety, performance, and luxury. The idea behind the RLX is to offer buyers a premium sedan that has everything they could ever want in a luxury vehicle, but wrapped in a package that offers a lot of value, especially compared to vehicles from certain German luxury brands, and an impressive level or reliability as well.

This year, the Acura RLX also adds a hybrid version which further distinguishes the brand from other luxury vehicles in the class. No question, there is a lot to love about the 2015 Acura RLX but we think that overall, what is most to like about the midsize luxury sedan is how balanced it is. Indeed, when driving the RLX, owners will notice first and foremost just how impressive its combination of comfort, luxury, equipment, quietness, and overall refinement actually is.

Starting at $ 49,900, the 2015 Acura RLX also happens to be priced below its main competitors. That means that if you are looking for a luxury sedan that is both elegant and full of features, you will get your money’s worth with Acura’s midsize offering. There is just so much to like about the RLX, but here are three elements that really set it apart from the rest.

Comfort and interior space

The Acura RLX is very comfortable, let us just get that out of the way right away. Acura’s midsize sedan is quiet regardless of whether you are accelerating or simply cruising down the highway, and we like how wind noise, even on a very windy day, is almost nonexistent. Moreover, there is plenty of interior space inside the 2015 RLX, especially in the back. The 2015 RLX offers plenty of legroom and is wide enough to sit three adults comfortably in the back seat. The trunk is also quite spacious.

Powerful hybrid version

This year, Acura unveiled a completely new version of the Acura RLX that just happens to be a technological marvel. The 2015 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid doesn’t just have one engine, but actually, it has four engines including three electric motors. The base engine is a 3.5-liter V6 with 310 horsepower that is combined to an electric unit with 47 horsepower mounted to the engine and transmission, and two other units each with 36 hp that power the rear wheels. This gives the RLX Sport Hybrid all-wheel drive, and fuel economy numbers that rival a compact luxury sedan.

Overall value

Starting at less than $ 50,000, the RLX is easily the most affordable vehicle in its class. If you compare to some German rivals, you notice that the price difference can easily reach more than $10,000 for similarly-equipped vehicles.
