Compared to the departed 2013 Acura RL the 2014 RLX features...well...an X in its name. More substantive changes include a completely redesigned interior and exterior, a new all-wheel steering system, the addition of a hybrid all-wheel-drive model and a modernized 2-screen infotainment system.
Story

Pros
Elegant styling. It is evident that Acura worked hard to enhance the appearance of the 2016 Acura RLX. Proven engine. Good fuel economy. Cutting-edge steering system. Low-maintenance vehicle.
Cons
Spacious cabin. Five-star safety rating. Strong resale value.

2017 Acura RLX - Very good model with excellent design.

Acura RLX is quiet and comfortable and offers an impressive mix of power and fuel economy from the Sport Hybrid version. But this year's updates (read more about them in our RLX First Impression review) just don't go far enough in addressing the issues that make the RLX hard to recommend over similarly priced luxury competitors. Certainly, there are positive aspects to Acura's top sedan. The Sport Hybrid is pretty cool. It's all-wheel-drive, and each rear wheel is independently driven by an electric motor; an electric motor in the transmission helps the V6 drive the front wheels.
Story
No story.
Pros
Horsepower 310 hp @ 6500 rpm. Very fast.
Cons
Nothing.
