This engine also comes with the Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ which allows for a more precise ride when navigating slippery terrain and other road conditions.

You can even upgrade to the Advance Package which will include the Krell® Audio System with 14-speakers, which features sharper clarity and dynamics when it comes to your audio entertainment.

2018 Acura RLX Redesign

There's no question that the 2018 Acura RLX will turn heads when it's on the road. The Acura RLX went through a bit of a redesign to add a few new bells and whistles while retaining the previous model's stylish aesthetics. The redesign was done to highlight the vehicle's magnetic performance and showcase its abilities while in transit. New updates include the diamond pentagon grille, a dual exhaust, and a newly sculpted hood that adds a sleeker refinement to the sedan.
