The new RLX is roughly the same overall length of the current RL, but its wheelbase is two inches longer. This gives it a better stance, allowing it to ride more comfortably without compromising its handling. Fitted on this concept vehicle were 20-inch forged aluminum wheels with 255/35R20 high-performance rubber wrapped around them.
Inside, a well-appointed cabin with plenty of leather and wood surfaces provided. One new feature is the AcuraLink cloud-based connectivity system, which offers a broad range of convenience, entertainment and security features. The interior gets a high-end Krell audio system, cloud-based AcuraLink and a multi-angle back camera.
Under the hood on front-wheel-drive RLXs is an all-new V-6 engine that cranks out 310 horsepower. The top-end trim level on the RLX will feature Acura’s new Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system, which are three electric motors that combine with one gasoline engine.
On the technology front, the RLX debuts driving features such as Precision All-Wheel Steer, Adaptive Cruise Control with a low-speed follow feature and Agile Handling Assist.Precision All-Wheel Steer allows the RLX actively and independently adjust the angle of the rear wheels for better agility and braking.
