2020 Acura RLX - Supremely comfortable, innumerable standard features, NSX-derived hybrid system. Lows aging infotainment system, interior doesn't feel luxurious, nose-heavy handling. The RLX is a fine car as long as its luxury shortcomings are accepted.

If these updates are important to you, shop for a 2018-or-newer model. The seats in both rows are supportive and comfortable even on long trips. However, a large hump eats into legroom for anyone sitting in the rear middle seat.

Supremely comfortable, innumerable standard features, NSX-derived hybrid system.

The car is plain-looking, so after I bought it, I had my Acura dealer install three body kit options, including "mud flaps", side accents. The biggest complaint is the hard to use navigation system.

The 2020 Acura RLX ranks near the bottom of the luxury large car class. It has outdated infotainment features and a small trunk, and its cabin lacks the opulence of its rivals.
Story
No story.
Pros
Robust powertrain choices. Lots of standard features.
Cons
Outdated infotainment system. Some dull cabin materials.
