What do you get when you combine luxury styling, serious power and superior handling, and add perfect safety scores and a reasonable price tag? The new 2016 Acura RLX.
Better yet? There’s a hybrid option.
Power, handling, styling, luxury, and a hybrid option are just five reasons why this year’s RLX is the ultimate luxury sedan. Here’s what you need to know:
Thanks to expert engineering and the latest in collision-mitigation technology, the 2016 RLX earned rare perfect scores from both the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The luxury Acura sedan has been named a Top Safety Pick+ and earned a 5-Star Overall Rating.
Some of the features making the RLX – and every Acura – one of the safest options on the road include proprietary airbag and seatbelt systems. Additionally, a standard braking combined with a collision-mitigation braking system help you be as responsive as possible on the road. Stability-assist, lane departure warning, forward collision warning and a tire-pressure monitoring system allow you to weather any condition.
The 2016 RLX comes standard with another type of protection: A security system enhanced with AcuraLink that both alerts you if your car is broken into and tracks it if it’s stolen.
The standard audio system on the 2016 RLX would make any other sedan’s premium system blush. Every new Acura comes with the ELS Studio® Premium Audio System, which includes multi-channel surround sound, Song by Voice® and 20cm subwoofer. The audio system can be controlled via touch screen, voice command or steering wheel controls.
Not enough for you? Opt for the premium Krell® Industries high-performance audio system that delivers on both sound and aesthetics. It features amplifier channels with bipolar power transistors, six mid-bass drivers and speaker grilles that are the ultimate combination of form and function.
The quintessential Acura sedan, the RLX features LED Jewel Eye headlights and a sleek, classic design that loyal drivers have come to know and love. Inside, expect high-quality design with a spacious cabin and ample legroom – wherever you’re sitting.
The RLX comes standard with tri-zone automatic climate control, push-button start and a power moonroof for comfort and convenience that you don’t even have to think about.
Bolstering the RLX’s position as a tech geek’s dream are Bluetooth® capabilities, HD radio, satellite radio, AcuraLink® infotainment system with navigation, voice recognition and a USB port.
