The epitome of luxury

2017 RLX

There are few luxury sedans, in Central Texas or otherwise, that can stand up to the 2017 Acura RLX. A powerful 3.5L V6 engine, a high-tech and high-class cabin, head-turning good looks, and state-of-the-art standard features mark the RLX as something more than just a car. We think it’s everything a driver should expect out of a sedan.



Power and grace

The 2017 Acura RLX is elegant from the start, turning heads in parking lots and on the highway, but it truly sets itself apart in its performance specs and features. The standard RLX sports a 3.5L V6 with 310 hp, satisfying drivers’ need for a full-size sedan with full-size power. Then there’s the RLX Sport Hybrid. The most advanced performance sedan ever created by Acura, RLX Sport Hybrid sedans seamlessly integrate three electric motors with a powerful V6 engine for improved traction, power, and fuel economy.

  • 2017 Acura RLX SportShift Paddles

    SportShift Paddles

    The efficiency and precision of automatic gear shifting meets the performance and control of a manual transmission right at the steering wheel of the RLX. SportShift paddles let the driver switch gears with just the slightest movement of the wrist; combine that with the vehicle’s multiple engine profiles for a sedan fit for the street or the track.

    Agile Handling Assist

    In order to maximize RLX performance, engineers looked at all of its features and asked which could be used for both their intended purpose and improved handling. Agile Handling Assist uses the Vehicle Stability Assist safety feature to brake individual wheels, counteracting understeer and oversteer and minimizing the power lost during a turn.

  • 2017 Acura RLX Aerodynamics


    The curves of the RLX may be faint, but they are purposeful. Augmenting the classic full-size luxury sedan look that makes this Acura stand out on the road are lines that guide the eye and the air up over the hood and out of the way as you put the pedal down and unleash the full power of the 3.5L V6.

  • 2017 Acura RLX Precision All-Wheel Steer

    Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS)

    This advanced all-wheel steer system is standard on the RLX, taking handling to new heights. P-AWS adjusts rear toe angles so they complement the front wheels, decreasing stopping distance, reducing turn radius, and improving highway stability.


Bold, streamlined design

There’s much to be impressed about on the 2017 Acura RLX, and for many drivers, that all starts with the smoothly sculpted, chrome-accented exterior design. The front end carries Acura’s iconic Jewel Eye LED headlights, the rear bears the look of a classic sport sedan, and the smooth lines and slight curves of the body panels bridge the front to the rear for a truly elegant appearance.

    Keyless Access

    The door handles of the RLX will automatically light up when you are within 3 feet of the vehicle, sensing your key fob. Touch the handle and the seats, steering wheel, mirrors, and more revert to preferred settings. When you arrive at your destination, simply press a button on the exterior door handle to lock up and be on your way.

  • 2017 Acura RLX Surround View Camera

    Surround View Camera

    A multi-angle rearview camera is standard on the RLX, but if you want a full view of the vehicle’s surroundings before leaving a parking spot, the available Surround View Camera has you covered. An overhead 360-degree view has you covered, letting you scan all around the vehicle and ensure no one is walking or driving in your direction before backing up.

    Capless Fuel Door

    Refined details of the RLX extend even to its fueling area. The car’s capless fuel filler door will have drivers wondering why they ever messed with fuel caps in the past. This innovative feature not only simplifies the process of gassing up by eliminating the need to remove a fuel cap, but it helps motorists keep their hands clean because they no longer have to touch a dirty cap.


Spacious and well-appointed

The spacious and sophisticated cabin of the 2017 Acura RLX is fully loaded with comfort and technology features. From the Milano leather seating to the tri-zone climate control (with GPS link) to the available heated and ventilated front seating, the RLX puts your comfort first. And state-of-the-art technologies keep you connected wherever your Acura goes.

  • 2017 Acura RLX Leather Seats

    High-End Materials

    Class-Leading Rear Legroom

    Comfort has been optimized for all RLX passengers, with the rear featuring a class-leading 38.8 inches of legroom and edging out competitors like the Lexus LS and Audi A8. Step up to the RLX Advance Package and the rear seats feature dual-level heating elements as well.

  • 2017 Acura RLX Audio Systems

    Advanced Audio Systems

    Standard on the RLX, the ELS Studio Premium Audio System sports 14 speakers and studio-quality sound, designed by Grammy Award–winning Elliot Scheiner. Drivers seeking a bit more punch to their audio system will find it on the available Krell Audio System, also with 14 speakers.

  • 2017 Acura RLX On Demand Multi-Use Display

    On Demand Multi-Use Display

    What would take dozens of traditional buttons is boiled down to fewer than 10 options that vary as you need them, all on a 7-inch color display. Control audio features, climate, Bluetooth, and more with just a few taps. The result is a streamlined dash that looks as intuitive and purposeful as every other inch of the RLX.

  • 2017 Acura RLX Active Sound Control

    Active Sound Control

    Rid the cabin of unwanted noise with Active Sound Control. This feature emits sounds in opposing frequencies to road and vehicle noise to cancel them out, while acoustic glass absorbs outside noise—even the wheels have been engineered to reduce tire noise.

  • 2017 Acura RLX Head-Up Display

    Head-Up Display

    Each 2017 RLX Sport Hybrid carries the HUD technology that puts relevant vehicle data directly onto the window so you don’t even need to glance away from the road. Real-time power distribution, driver assistance alerts, navigation instructions, and more can be illuminated right onto the windshield.


Advanced driver assistance

A powerful, elegant, technologically advanced car needs to prioritize safety just as much as other sedans, if not more so. The 2017 Acura RLX includes the AcuraWatch suite of advanced driver assistance and safety technologies as standard, augmenting other features like Vehicle Stability Assist and the Blind-Spot Information System to create one of the safest sedans.

  • 2017 Acura RLX Collision Mitigation Braking System

    Collision Mitigation Braking System

    The radar of Adaptive Cruise Control serves a dual purpose: alerting the driver to potential collisions with the Frontal Collision Warning system. If the driver doesn’t respond to the accident warning, Collision Mitigation Braking can apply the brakes automatically to help mitigate the damage.

  • Central Texas Acura Dealers

    Adaptive Cruise Control

    Cruise control makes highway drives easy, letting you focus on the road while the car keeps the speed up. Traditional cruise requires the driver to brake and accelerate to keep with the flow of traffic, but radar sensors on the RLX track the speed of surrounding vehicles and adjust the RLX cruising speeds automatically.

  • 2017 Acura RLX Lane Keeping Assist System

    Lane Keeping Assist System

    A front-mounted camera on the RLX tracks the markings on the pavement and can sense if the vehicle starts to drift. After a warning, the Lane Keeping Assist System is able to give the vehicle a nudge and center it in the lane to help fight driver fatigue.

  • 2017 Acura RLX Road Departure Mitigation System

    Road Departure Mitigation System

    By tracking objects and markings on the side of the road, the Road Departure Mitigation System can sense when the RLX is heading off-road and alert the driver. This system uses autonomous braking and active steering systems to keep the vehicle on the road.

  • 2017 Acura RLX Vehicle Stability Assist

    Vehicle Stability Assist

    This RLX safety feature tracks individual wheel speeds, steering wheel position, and lateral G-forces to detect oversteer and understeer. If it detects either, Vehicle Stability Assist adjusts the brakes and engine output until stability returns and the car is back under control.

  • Central Texas Acura Dealers

    Blind Spot Information System

    Radar sensors on the rear of the RLX can detect if a vehicle is in the blind spot or “alert zone” for the vehicle. If it senses a car in the blind spot, the system lights up an indicator on the display, alerting the driver with audio and visual warnings if they signal when a vehicle is in the alert zone.
