This Year's Model Updates:

For 2015, the Acura RLX Sport Hybrid will still be on sale, but Acura says it will continue to be designated as a 2014 model (there will be no 2015 Sport Hybrid per se). For the regular RLX, the Advance option package now includes a heated steering wheel.

Pros:
  • Spacious cabin.
  • Abundant standard features
Cons:
  • Disconnected steering feel
  • Harsh ride with the 19-inch wheels and tires
  • So-so display screen graphics with distracting interface
  • Front seats get uncomfortable on longer drives.

  • RLX - no 4 x X - 2015 Acura RLX

    One of my requirements was 4 Wheel or All Wheel Drive capability in a luxury sedan. This car was wonderful but didn't have either although, as I understand it, prior models did.

    Just to give a little backround, my last two cars were a Lexus GS and an Acura RL. I did not like my Lexus at all and got rid of it after less than two years. I had that Lexus in the shop 7 times in those two years for various problems. Up until then, I had pretty much owned only Toyota or Lexus. In 2008, I decided to get the Acura RL to replace the Lexus GS. The Acura RL treated me very well for 6 years until I gave it to my daughter. When it was time to get a new car, I considered many different luxury brands but kept coming back to Acura. So far, I have 13,500 miles on the car. I can honestly say, this is the best car I have ever owned. I look forward to driving it everyday. There were a couple of recalls which were easily taken care of...I was not having problems before the recalls. If I had to do it again, I would not hesitate to get the RLX. I would love to have the hybrid version but it was not available when I bought my car. I had a deposit for one with the dealer but after waiting a year, they finally told me they weren't sure when they would available. I guess that would be my one complaint with Acura...they had a predicted release date for the hybrid and it kept getting delayed and there was no information available as to if and when they were going to come out with the car.

    Quality of interior is mediocre. ^-cylinder shifting is annoyingly rough wife's 12 year old Subaru smoother.

    Purchased new RLX in 2014, what a mistake. It has had three recalls and now an engine noise has developed which Acura mechanics can not figure out. Audio tapes have been sent to Acura Engineering and they are stumped. I intend to get rid of it as soon as it comes back from shop (two weeks) Bad news trade in value is now $35,000 for a one year old car with 12,000 miles for which I paid $52,000. Go with Lexus or Infinity and save yourself trouble

    This is a wonderful car- my 4th Acura (2 TSX, 1 TL) Interior surpasses anything I looked at and the technology that comes standard is exceptional. Could be a bit sharper on the outside but still gets lots of looks and certainly beats the Lexus GS. And, with the great discounting going on, would be hard to beat the value.
