About ACURA RLX
The Acura Legend was a very successful vehicle in establishing Acura as a separate division, and when combined with Integra sales, Acura outsold long-standing luxury marques BMW and Mercedes-Benz, as well as Toyota’s new luxury division Lexus. The successor RL, on the other hand, sold below expectations due to a relatively small interior for its size, the lack of a V8 performance engine option and a better handling rear-wheel drive experience, and/or being relatively expensive in comparison to its rivals.
According to an October 2009 Car and Driver blog, Acura executives admitted at a dinner that the introduction of the new, larger, and in some ways more powerful, fourth generation Acura TL made it difficult to market the then-current RL. According to an Autoweek article from November 2009, new Honda CEO Takanobu Ito told Automotive News that Acura is changing course. Ito, speaking through an interpreter, said of the global economy prior to the collapse of investment bank Lehman Brothers, “Prior to Lehman, we had considered producing more multicylinder engines… Acura’s future, in my opinion, will be a cross between BMW and Audi, somewhere between high performance and high technology.” Acura will be in a “low-growth period of developing new products” as a result of this midstream change, according to Ito. “We imagined that we could create glamorous, beautiful products that would sell. Now, our premium products will be expressed in advanced environmental technologies, rather than glamorous things attached to the product,” he said.
The RLX underwent a mid-cycle refresh for the 2018 model year, and sales of the vehicle kicked off in November of 2017. Acura’s new design language was incorporated into the updated RLX, which featured a diamond pentagon grille, redesigned front and rear fascias, redesigned LED tail lights, LED head lights, a new wheel design, a redesigned hood, and chrome exhaust finishers. In addition, the updated RLX had LED head lights. Alterations had been made to the cabin’s interior, which included a new layout for the front seats, the steering wheel, the wood trim, and the addition of an option for a Espresso-colored cabin interior. The RLX came standard with Acura’s suite of safety features known as AcuraWatch, which included the company’s first-ever Traffic Jam Assist and blind spot monitoring systems. A new 10-speed automatic transmission was installed in the RLX, which features front-wheel drive. The length increased to 5,032 millimeters (198.1 inches), making it the longest Honda/Acura sedan to date and the first to surpass 5 meters in length (16 ft 5 in).
