Intuition and luxury combined

2016 RLX

In the best of circumstances, a car has the ability to change how the driver feels about driving and what they expect of the automobile the instant they sit in the driver’s seat. The 2016 Acura RLX was designed to deliver on that idea, giving Wisconsin drivers a vehicle that operates intuitively and represents the height of luxury. It’s taking the auto world somewhere new and exciting.



Fusing power and efficiency together

The idea that a car can either be fuel efficient or powerful is one that has been around for decades, but Acura engineers seem to be breaking it with their 3.5L V6 engine. Whether you adopt the Sport Hybrid version of the RLX or stick with the standard model, you have a powerful V6 and a respectable fuel economy.

  • RLX 3.5L engine

    3.5L V6 Engine

    Each 2016 Acura RLX is equipped with a 3.5L V6 engine rated at 310 hp and 272 lb-ft of torque. Don’t worry about the fuel efficiency, though; Variable Cylinder Management ensures you’re only firing on all cylinders when it’s necessary, coasting on as few as three cylinders to conserve fuel: this standard 2016 RLX has earned an EPA-estimated 31 highway and 20 city mpg.**

  • 2016 RLX front exterior close up

    Sport Hybrid Powertrain

    Take that 3.5L V6 and now add three motors onto it (two on the rear axle, one on the transmission) and you have a brand new kind of hybrid: one that is geared toward performance while still delivering remarkable fuel efficiency. The power output of the 2016 RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD is 377 hp, yet its fuel economy comes in at an impressive EPA-estimated 32 highway and 28 city mpg.**

  • 2016 RLX

    Variable Cylinder Management

    It can be tempting to say you want your engine running at full speed all the time, but when you’re coasting, that would just be wasting fuel. The RLX’s Variable Cylinder Management gives you a smart sports car, one that knows when you don’t need all six cylinders but then fires up the instant you put your foot to the accelerator.

  • RLX steering wheel

    Drive-by-Wire Throttle System

    For the RLX to have the responsive handling it does, it requires a higher level of sensitivity than the average sedan. Drive-by-Wire optimizes the throttle response based on the current driving conditions, letting your sedan feel at home whether it’s on the street or the track.

  • 2016 RLX 6 speed sportshift

    Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters

    Drivers no longer have to settle for a simple automatic transmission; enjoy the benefits of an automatic with the control of a manual thanks to the paddle shifters of the 2016 Acura RLX. Choose between “Drive” and “Sport” modes depending on whether you want to maximize fuel efficiency or embrace high-performance driving.

  • RLX

    Agile Handling Assist

    By using a standard safety feature of the 2015 Acura RLX, Vehicle Stability Assist, and using it proactively, the RLX is able to improve day-to-day handling, helping correct oversteer and understeer and also trace the line you want through a curve. It’s called Agile Handling Assist, and it gives you the feeling of being a pro driver behind the wheel.

  • RLX Jewel Eye LED headlights

    Jewel Eye LED Headlights

    Using eight LED bulbs and a total of 16 lenses, these headlights deliver a whiter and brighter beam than what traditional and halogen bulbs are capable of. They get their name from the unique lens design which catches and refracts sunlight to give the RLX a jewel-like sparkle even during the daytime.

  • 2016 RLX rearview camera

    Multi-angle Rearview Camera

    The last thing you want to do is back your RLX up into a car or a pole on accident, and while the rearview mirror can help with this, Acura gives you a multi-angle rearview camera as well. Shift into reverse and the display broadcasts a look at what’s behind your car in one of three different views. Want more peace of mind? The RLX has an available “around view” camera that displays 360 degrees.

  • RLX power side mirror

    Power Side Mirrors

    The mirrors might seem like a feature you don’t think about too often, but the RLX engineers did. Shift into reverse and they automatically tilt down to give you a better look at what’s behind your car. Turn on the defrost and they switch on heating elements to clear fog and ice. Push a button, and the mirrors (and other driver settings) revert to your preferences.


Elegant technology integration

Memory settings on the 2016 Acura RLX know you. When you get behind the wheel, you can have the seating, steering wheel position, side mirrors, and more adjusted to where you prefer them. Other high-tech gadgets include a heads-up display and satellite-linked navigation, and they come seamlessly integrated with the rest of the luxurious, leather-wrapped cabin.

  • rlx front seats

    Front Seating

    No matter how advanced a car like the 2016 Acura RLX is, an uncomfortable seat can ruin it. Of course, the RLX has seating that is so comfortable that you could find yourself taking your lunch break there without ever starting the car. Heated and ventilated front seats control the temperature and plush Milano leather is soft and welcoming.

  • RLX dashboard


    The RLX has been engineered to seem as though it is one car carved from a solid block of material. The dashboard has a dual-cove instrument panel as well as a set of touchscreens that blend in so seamlessly with the rest of the vehicle that you would think they are integral parts of the vehicle like the gearshift or steering wheel. Because they are.

  • RLX Heads-Up Display

    Heads-Up Display (HUD)

    The important vehicle information you need is so often just outside of your field of vision, and the Heads-Up Display, or HUD, fixes that. Projecting onto the windshield at just below your line of sight, you can easily see relevant vehicle information when you need it without ever taking your eyes off of the road.

  • 2016 RLX functionality controls


    The eight-inch color touchscreen makes it easy to plan and visualize a route, but if you need to adjust while driving, the voice controls do the work for you. Real-time monitoring of traffic and construction helps route you around delays to get you where you need to be on time.

  • 2016 RLX gps linked climate system

    GPS-linked Climate Control

    Tri-zone climate control combines with the convenience of GPS to know where the sun is in relation to the RLX and estimate the amount of heat it sends into the vehicle. The RLX adjusts your climate settings automatically so that you don’t have to.

  • 2016 RLX voice recognition

    Voice Recognition Software

    The voice recognition software works for more than just the navigation system. Make phone calls or change your media settings with just a few words, never taking your hands off of the wheel. The Acura can respond to over 600 different commands.


Feel protected by the RLX

The first step in creating the 2016 Acura RLX was not to engineer a more powerful engine or sculpt the most luxurious cabin possible. It was the same first step as every other Acura: plan for safety. With traditional safety features like airbags and seat belts as well as advanced accident prevention features, the RLX is able to fill the needs of the sports car and the family sedan at the same time.

  • 2016 RLX brakes

    Braking Systems

    Great engine power means the need for an even greater stopping power, even if you may not want to slow your RLX down. Four-wheel disc brakes and sophisticated electronics ensure that the braking system offers a firm and predictable pedal response whether cruising on the highway or driving in town.

  • 2016 RLX body structure

    Body Structure Design

    Safety starts with the frame at Acura, quite literally. The RLX starts off with the Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure, which is designed to keep the energy from an accident evenly dispersed among all vehicles, particularly keeping it away from the cabin of the RLX.

  • 2016 RLX child safety seat in rear

    Child Safety

    The 2016 Acura RLX will no doubt appeal to many as a family sedan, and it’s been outfitted with child safety measures to help keep it family friendly. The windows and sunroof close slowly and can detect when fingers are in the way, backing off to avoid pinching, and the vehicle features LATCH-compliant child safety seat anchors for easy installation and securing of child safety seats.

  • RLX blindspot detection

    Blind Spot Information System

    It’s important to always check your mirrors, but the RLX can do some of the work for you. Radar can detect if a car is in the “alert zone,” your blind spot, and light up a light on the front window pillars. If you signal a lane change with something in your alert zone, the RLX flashes the light and gives you a warning noise.

  • CollisionSystem

    Collision Mitigation Braking

    It would be great if your car could brake for you, wouldn’t it? While you should always be focusing on the road and able to brake in time to avoid an accident, the RLX’s Collision Mitigation Braking System is able to detect the likelihood of a collision, warn you, and even apply the brakes if needed.

  • RLX Tire Pressure Monitoring System

    Tire Pressure Monitoring System

    Uneven tire wear is not just bad for your tires; it’s bad for vehicle safety. A vehicle can perform erratically with uneven tires, there is an increased likelihood of picking up a nail or screw that punctures the tread, and there is an increased risk of damage to the sidewall. The RLX Tire Pressure Monitoring System looks to avoid all of that, alerting you whenever your tires are less than 75% pressurized.
