Comfort comes standard with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, soft, perforated Milano leather seats and 12-way power with 4-way lumbar support for both the driver and front passenger seats. The RLX provides seating for up to five occupants and includes exceptional rear passenger legroom at 38.8 inches.
