If you’ve been checking out new Acura cars in Redwood City, CA, lately here at Hopkins Acura you’ve seen it in person — it’s the automaker’s Precision Crafted Performance design philosophy. Now there’s a new model which embodies this bold theme; it’s the 2018 Acura RLX, and the automaker recently revealed its stunning beauty and graceful athleticism to the world at this year’s Monterey Automotive Week event.
According to Jon Ikeda, Vice President and General Manager of Acura, “This redesign of the 2018 Acura RLX is transformational, creating road presence and styling that better reflect underlying performance capabilities of the vehicle.”
The upcoming 2018 Acura RLX raises the bar to new heights for the automaker’s flagship luxury sedan. It flaunts an eye-catching, attractive appearance distinguished by its distinctively designed diamond pentagon grille, newly designed wheels and LED rear lights, sculpted and refined hood, and dual exhausts and black gloss rear diffuser.
Perhaps the most impressive among its many advanced, performance oriented features is the 2018 Acura RLX sedan’s available Sport Hybrid Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive™ system, as seen in the amazing 2017 Acura NSX Supercar and optimized for dynamic character and refined poise in the new 2018 Acura RLX. The 2018 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid features a potent gasoline powered V6 engine and three electric powered motors to produce a total of 377 horsepower.
Traditionally powered Acura RLX models feature a 310 horsepower engine and a ten-speed automatic transmission, as well as the automaker’s sporty and agile Precision All-Wheel Steer™ system.
“The Acura brand continues to gain momentum with a singular focus on our Precision Crafted Performance DNA, which is brought to life in captivating products like the RLX,” said Ikeda.
The stunning 2018 Acura RLX will be available later this year.
