Luxury flagship sedan

2017 RLX

There are few cars that can lead a segment the way the 2017 Acura RLX does, with an elegance, a sense of purpose, and a powerful engine that leaves competitors wanting. Whether driving the standard RLX or the performance-oriented RLX Sport Hybrid, the cabin is wrapped in the latest in luxury and technology features, ensuring your drive is as comfortable as it is spirited. When we look at this Acura, we see the idealized luxury sedan for the Wisconsin driver.



Fun behind the wheel

It’s easy to see the plush interior and the exterior’s timeless sense of style, but the 2017 Acura RLX performance features keep themselves hidden until you put foot to accelerator or cut the wheel through a turn. Powering each RLX is a 3.5L V6 engine with 310 hp, giving the vehicle enough energy to leave competing sedans in the rearview. The RLX Sport Hybrid adds on three motors to improve handling, specs, and fuel economy, using Acura’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive to bring improved traction in wet and dry conditions.

    3.5L V6 Engine

    The core of the 2017 Acura RLX performance specs and features, this engine takes advantage of advanced Direct Injection fuel technologies and Variable Cylinder Management to maximize power, torque, and fuel economy.

    Sport Hybrid

    Many drivers have an idea of what a hybrid car is like, but the RLX diffuses the notions of a boring hybrid. Three motors are used to augment the specs of that 3.5L V6 engine, improving power, increasing fuel economy, and actively directing torque swiftly to the wheels for faster response times. RLX Sport Hybrid models are rated at 377 hp and 341 lb-ft of torque combined between all motors and the V6 engine, earning an EPA-estimated 30 highway and 29 city mpg.**

    SportShift Paddles

    Mounted directly onto the steering column, SportShift paddle shifters combine the ease of an automatic transmission with the control of a manual for the best of both worlds. Keep your focus on the road and hands on the wheel, shifting with little more than a flick of the wrist.

  • 2017 Acura RLX Agile Handling Assist

    Agile Handling Assist

    The features of the RLX are rarely single-purpose, and Agile Handling Assist takes advantage of the Vehicle Stability Assist safety feature to improve overall performance. When it senses a potential oversteer or understeer, Agile Handling Assist can brake individual wheels to return control to you.

  • 2017 Acura RLX Aerodynamics


    One look at the body of the RLX will tell you that it’s a well-designed car, but the slight curves are there for more than just good looks. The graceful lines that connect the front end seamlessly to the rear have been honed to carve through the air with a sense of lightness and grace, minimizing wind resistance and maximizing the thrill of that 3.5L V6.

  • Wisconsin Acura Dealers

    Precision All-Wheel Steer

    Both standard the 2017 RLX and the soon-to-be-released Sport Hybrid model include Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS) as standard, offering an improved level of handling to decrease turning radius, reduce stopping distance, and improve highway stability. The system automatically adjusts rear toe angles to be complementary to the front wheels for overall improved performance.


Breathtaking design

The 2017 Acura RLX exterior is going to be the first thing other Wisconsinites see of the car, and it makes quite the mark. A purposeful sense of design leads to contours traced from Jewel Eye LED headlight to tailpipe, accented with chrome in a way that is sure to catch the eye without seeming too bold. It’s sure to leave an impression on the drivers you leave in the slow lane.

    Keyless Access

    A truly modern car, the RLX knows when you’re coming. When it detects your key fob is within 3 feet of the vehicle, the door handles light up—give them a touch and the driver settings revert to your preferences. When you arrive at your destination, simply shut the car door and press a button on the handle to lock it up until you return.

  • 2017 Acura RLX Surround View Camera

    Surround View Camera

    A multi-angle rearview camera comes standard on the RLX, but for those seeking more peace of mind when backing up, a 360-degree Surround View Camera is available as well. See if someone is approaching your vehicle from the side or if a car might soon drive behind you so you can back up with confidence.

  • 2017 Acura RLX Capless Fuel Door

    Capless Fuel Door

    Integrated directly into the beautiful design of the RLX, the capless fuel door pops open and is ready to be filled up automatically. A unique engineering solution built the gas cap onto the inside fuel door, offering a tight seal without ever needing to tighten a gas cap again.


The height of comfort

The well-appointed cabin combines high-tech connectivity and entertainment with modern luxuries and an impeccable sense of design for a vehicle unlike any other. The driver’s seat of the 2017 Acura RLX is as welcoming as your favorite chair at home, if it were wrapped in premium leather. Leather trim adorns the dashboard and other elements, featuring contrast stitching and brushed aluminum speakers for a truly high-class look.

  • 2017 Acura RLX Leather Seats

    High-End Materials

    To ensure that every element of the RLX represents the epitome of what a luxury sedan can be, Acura used only the highest quality materials. The seats are wrapped in premium Milano leather, the dash and trim feature leather with contrast stitching, and the brushed aluminum speakers give the interior an extra gleam of class.

  • 2017 Acura RLX Rear Legroom

    Class-Leading Rear Legroom

    Comfort should extend beyond the driver’s seat, and the class-leading rear legroom of the RLX is proof Acura is concerned that all five passengers have room to get comfortable. With 38.8 inches of rear legroom available, this sedan offers space for full-size adults in every seat, with more room than competing models like the Audi A8 or Lexus LS. Available rear heated seats keep passengers comfy no matter the season.

  • 2017 Acura RLX Audio Systems

    Advanced Audio Systems

    This 14-speaker stereo system was developed by Grammy Award–winning producer Elliot Scheiner to bring the studio sound experience to the auto world. Enjoy the serenity of the RLX cabin coupled with your favorite driving soundtrack in the highest fidelity thanks to the ELS Studio system. Looking for a different sound profile? The RLX has a Krell system available as well.

  • 2017 Acura RLX On Demand Multi-Use Display

    On Demand Multi-Use Display

    Traditional knobs and buttons just won’t do in the modern auto world. Acura’s On-Demand Multi-Use Display (ODMD) takes what would be dozens of buttons and condenses them to nine variable buttons on a touchscreen that reconfigured itself for what you need when you need it.

  • Wisconsin Acura Dealers

    Active Sound Control

    Many drivers get used to road noise, but in the RLX, you won’t have to. Active Sound Control emits sound waves to counter vehicle noise while acoustic windshield glass works to silence road noise. The car even has special wheels engineered to minimize the noise from its tires.

  • Wisconsin Acura Dealers

    Head-Up Display

    The RLX features an available Head-Up Display that puts relevant vehicle data—speedometer readings, navigation commands, driver assistance alerts—directly onto the windshield for easy viewing. Projected just below the line of sight, you won’t have to glance away from the road for even a second to know vital driving information.


Preventive safety features

More than any other element of the 2017 Acura RLX, we are proud of its standard safety technologies. Each model includes advanced accident prevention and driver assistance features found in the AcuraWatch suite of technologies, helping you to drive safer and avoid an accident before it happens.

  • 2017 Acura RLX Collision Mitigation Braking System

    Collision Mitigation Braking System

    The radar sensors of Adaptive Cruise Control can also sense how quickly you are approaching other vehicles, issuing an alert if the RLX appears to be on a collision course. If the driver fails to respond to the alert, the Collision Mitigation Braking System can apply the brakes to slow or even stop the vehicle.

  • 2017 Acura RLX Adaptive Cruise Control

    Adaptive Cruise Control

    Radar sensors are able to detect the speeds of vehicles around the RLX and adjust cruising speeds to keep with the flow of traffic. You can focus on the road while adaptive cruise control keeps the car moving at just the right speed.

  • Wisconsin Acura Dealers

    Lane Keeping Assist System

    A front-mounted camera lets this AcuraWatch feature monitor the markings on the pavement and alert the driver if it senses drifting from the lane. Lane Keeping Assist can then give the wheel a slight nudge to keep the car centered, if needed.

  • 2017 Acura RLX Road Departure Mitigation System

    Road Departure Mitigation System

    Like Lane Keeping Assist, this safety feature uses a camera to monitor the road. If it senses common side-of-road markings and objects that might indicate the RLX is heading for the shoulder or off the road, it will warn the driver, using active steering and autonomous braking to keep the vehicle on the road if needed.

  • 2017 Acura RLX Vehicle Stability Assist

    Vehicle Stability Assist

    The Vehicle Stability Assist safety feature tracks the steering wheel position and the speeds of individual wheels, ensuring they are in sync. If it senses skidding, oversteer, or understeer, it can adjust engine performance or brake individual wheels to return the RLX to your control.

  • Wisconsin Acura Dealers

    Blind Spot Information System

    Radar on the rear of the RLX lets this safety feature identify vehicles in the blind spots of the car, lighting an indicator on the dash. If you signal a lane change toward a car in the blind spot, this system will issue audio and visual warnings to alert you to the potential accident.
