TORRANCE, Calif. – The 2017 Acura RLX, the most lavishly equipped and technologically advanced Acura sedan goes on sale tomorrow at Acura dealerships nationwide, wîth a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) starting at $54,4501.   

The 2017 Acura RLX sedan offers a compelling blend of refinement and spirited driving performance, boasting an abundance of standard premium features.  The RLX is powered by a powerful and smooth 310-horsepower, direct-injected DOHC i-VTEC V-6 engine that contributes to the flagship sedan's EPA fuel economy ratings of 20/30/232 mpg (city/highway/combined). The Sport Hybrid RLX model, which shares some hybrid and Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™ (SH-AWD®) technologies wîth the Acura NSX, will go on sale later this Fall.     
 
The two-wheel drive RLX continues to benefit from Acura's  Precision All-Wheel Steer™ (P-AWS™) system, enabling changes to rear toe angle to create a rear-wheel §teering affect that sharpens both low- and high-speed maneuverability and stability. The RLX models come standard wîth Acura's  distinctive Jewel Eye™ LED headlights, 19-inch bright-finished wheels and next generation AcuraLink® connected car system.

The 2017 Acura RLX also features AcuraWatch™, a comprehensive suite of safety and driver assistive technologies, as standard equipment on all trims. The AcuraWatch™ suite includes:
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) wîth Low-Speed Follow (LSF)
Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS)
Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)
Blind Spot Information (BSI)
Cross Traffic Monitor
The 2017 Acura RLX is available in two grades: the RLX wîth Technology Package and RLX wîth Advance Package each delivering exceptional levels of technology-enhanced performance, comfort and convenience.   

Vital Stats

7-speed Automatic
Performance and Safety
The chassis of the Acura RLX received multiple tuning refinements to improve overall ride and handling quality and reduce noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) in 2016. Front and rear shock absorbers received an increase in piston rod diameter and the rear stabilizer bar's stiffness is decreased. The front and rear spring rates and shock absorber damping force were all retuned to provide better shock absorption and road surface tracking. Furthermore, the front upper spring/shock mounts and rear bump stops were also modified.
Útilizing Acura's next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ II (ACE™ II) body structure, along wîth seven airbags (including driver's knee airbag), the RLX earned a 5-star NCAP Overall Vehicle safety rating and is anticipated to earn a TOP SAFETY PICK rating from IIHS. The RLX also offers intuitive technology that reduces stress and simplifies the driving and ownership experience – wîth features such as Electronic Parking Brake wîth Automatic Brake Hold, a capless refueling system, Smart Entry/Smart Start keyless access system, easy-to-use and customize dual touch screens, 'tensionless' e-pretension front seatbelts, and available rain-sensing windshield wipers, among others.
