Considering Acura already has the RDX, MDX, ZDX, the recently launched ILX, and also the upcoming NSX, it had been solely natural for them to feature an “X” to the name of their new flagship. The RL, that has been on sale in Canada in its current guise since 2005, could be a terribly competent vehicle, however has didn’t catch on with the posh shopping for public.
Acura hopes to vary that with their new RLX, that was shown in concept kind at the the big apple International Auto Show this past April.
Per Honda/Acura apply, the RLX is just a plan as a result of its name says thus. It’s very a thinly veiled verify successive Acura flagship sedan, and also the replacement for the wonderful however ultimately forgettable RL. As you may imagine, the RLX shares a lot of with the RL, as well as a basic design (the suspension mounting points are largely an equivalent, for example). They conjointly share the letters R and L. each cars have V-6 power. And each feature SH-AWD—Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive—systems.
The new technologies and spectacular fuel economy—especially within the city—should facilitate the automotive garner some attention, though, as can the actual fact that it’ll face less competition at intervals Acura’s own showrooms: the corporate told us that it’ll pare its automotive lineup to simply 3 sedans within the close to future. With the arrival of the ILX and this RLX, meaning the TL or TSX can get the boot. It’s maybe telling that Acura is within the method of securing a trademark on the TLX badge.
