2018 Acura RLX: Luxury and Distinction Combined in Ottawa, Ontario

Published on March 29 2018

With a total redesign, the 2018 Acura RLX takes the fast lane. It’s also the rich interior, exciting technologies, and serious safety systems. Tech or Elite editions are offered with either engine choice. 

Instead of bars or mesh, metallic diamonds seem to float inside the clever pentagon grille. Jewel-Eye headlights and a sculpted hood add to the upscale look. LED pipe lighting and chrome dress up the taillights. Wheels combine a machined finish and black paint to create a high-contrast appearance. 

Acura’s heated mirrors wipe away frost and snow with the touch of a button. These mirrors also tilt-down to show you the curb when driving in reverse. Headlight washers and rain-sensing wipers are standards on all editions.

True Performance In The 2018 RLX in Ottawa, Ontario

If you long for a competitive sedan, get ready. The 2018 RLX doesn’t hesitate when faced with a challenge. The V6 equipped models generate 310 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. Amplitude Reactive Dampers and Agile Handling Assist provide electronic regulation of your ride, reducing bounce and improving how the car responds to driver input. Highway fuel economy is 8.2 litres/100 km. 

The Sport Hybrid equipped models use a V6 and hybrid technology to deliver 377 horsepower and 341 lb-ft of torque. Super Handling All-Wheel Drive handles snowy or icy conditions. 

Helping both models reduce fuel use, an idle stop function turns the car off at red lights and restarts immediately when your foot leaves the brake for the accelerator. The Active Control Engine Mount system reduces vibration and sound. Variable Cylinder Management shuts off the cylinders you don’t need when you are cruising.

Upscale Interiors in the 2018 RLX in Ottawa, Ontario

Milano leather and wood trim the cabin in style. Taking care of the front row, heated front seats offer 12-way power adjustability. A memory system plus a heated steering wheel take further care of the driver. For the back row, Acura provides adult-sized passenger space and outboard heated seats. Tech models add side sunshades and a power-operated rear sunshade to help keep the sun off of children in car seats. 

Acura’s high-tech interior includes dual colour screens. The entertainment touchscreen provides Bluetooth Streaming Audio functions, but it also has hard disk drive media storage where you can keep a library of your favourite music. Shoppers choose from a 14-speaker ELS Studio Premium Audio System or a Krell ultra-premium system. Both include SiriusXM capability.
