2018 Acura RLX refresh packs a new face and NSX DNA

2018 Acura RLX

Inside, the 2018 RLX gets a redesign as well with upgraded materials through, new seats with high-contrast detailing and a new Espresso color option (not pictured).

"This redesign of the 2018 Acura RLX is transformational, creating road presence and styling that better reflect underlying performance capabilities of the vehicle", said Jon Ikeda, Acura vice president & general manager. At the rear end, the engineers installed the new LED taillight, while you can also see a dual exhaust and shiny black rear diffuser.

The 2018 Acura RLX will make its public debut during the prestigious Monterey Automotive Week, August 15-19 on the Monterey peninsula, and will be available to purchase in November.

The hood, headlights, taillights and front and rear fascias are all revised for a more aggressive and sculpted look. It's not much different from the current RLX with two screens in the center stack, tasteful wood interior accents, and lots of curves. The system continues to produce a combined 377hp out of the combination of a direct-injected V6 with three electric motors. The RLX Sport Hybrid's powertrain has been mildly retuned and "optimized", yet output remains at 377 horsepower.

Acura is also offering a suite of technology options for the 2018 RLX.

U.S. warship challenges China's claims in South China Sea
Its sweeping claims overlap with those of ASEAN members Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia and Brunei, as well as Taiwan. United States officials say the military will continue to sail, fly and operate wherever permitted by worldwide law.

Under the new sheet metal is the same V-6 engine and optional Sport Hybrid model.

However, the changes do not extend any further, and the 2018 RLX will be powered by the 3.5-liter V6 engine that develops 310 horsepower and which is mated to a new 10-speed automatic transmission. The newest feature is Traffic Jam Assist that works in conjunction with the adaptive cruise control's low-speed follow function to keep the auto in its lane and at a safe distance from the vehicle in front. Stay tuned for the official reveal, which is going to happen in Monterey next week, but the vehicle goes on sale in November. Traffic Jam Assist helps keep the sedan in its lane and can follow behind a vehicle detected ahead of it - a must-have feature for daily commuters.

Standard features on the Sport Hybrid will include heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats and steering wheel, a Krell audio system, an around-view camera system, parking sensors, LED fog lights, and remote starting.

AcuraWatch also includes Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) with automatic emergency braking, Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow and Road Departure Mitigation (RDM).
