“Inspire an Industry”

The all-new 2014 Acura RLX Elite was built to inspire the industry and show you where the automotive industry can go, and it does a great in job doing just that. There is so much technology crammed into the RLX this vehicle can almost drive itself.

Interior

One of the major features of the RLX Elite is the luxury feel once you sit inside, with the 12-way power adjustable heated/cooled Milano leather trimmed front seats, heated rear seats and heated steering wheel, the RLX screams comfort and luxury. The cabin is balanced and feels like a full size sedan giving all passengers ample leg and shoulder room while giving you the most quiet ride you will find on the road using Acura’s active noise cancelation system which counters engine noise with opposing sound frequencies coming from the sound system and the acoustic glass also help insulate the interior from outside noises. The RLX Elite was equipped with the AcuraLink system which is like the brains of the operation allowing you access to thousands of customizable media and connectivity choices, security features and convenience features such as real time traffic, stolen vehicle tracking and 24hours personalized concierge services. The Elite also has one of the best sound systems available, done by Krell Audio the only in-car audio system designed by Krell Audio.

Engine/Performance

The 2014 Acura RLX is being called the most powerful Acura ever which is due to the 310 horsepower V6 i-VTEC engine and the variable cylinder management makes sure you don’t spend more time at the pump than on the road. The 6-speed sequential sportshift automatic transmission gives you the best of both worlds with paddle shifters located behind the steering wheel and when in Sport mode giving you that quick acceleration thrill seekers lust for. Precision All Wheel Steer system (P-AWS) is the world’s first system that enables the rear wheels to pivot up to 1.8 degrees independent of the front wheels allowing for optimal handling and control and at low speeds help maneuver in tight areas. The agile handling assist dynamic braking system and vehicle stability assist together with P-AWS gives the RLX one of the smoothest rides on the road with exceptional handling and control. Another great feature worth mentioning is the adaptive cruise control which is handy to have and a great luxury feature this driver wishes was available on all vehicles.

Exterior

The RLX is a sexy sedan with more curves than we’re used to and the signature jewel eye LED headlight system that has 8 dual stacked high-intensity LED lamps with ultra-reflective optical lenses to provide bright illumination and a unique look.

Safety

The TSX comes with the standard 7 airbags, dual stage dual threshold front airbags and active head restraints. The body structure has been modified to ensure advanced capability engineering. The RLX Elite model came with navigation, multi-angle backup camera that assists in reversing in any situation, lane keeping assist system which helps keep the vehicle inside your lane, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, and blind spot information system. This is one safe sedan that can do almost anything except drive itself…..yet.
