2014 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid Review and Road Test (Pre-Production)
It wasn't that long ago that I had an Acura RLX for a week. If you recall that review, I came away liking the car but found little joy in its high price tag. Despite wearing a fantastic stitched leather interior, there was just no way I could justify the $10,000 premium over the AWD competition from Lincoln, Volvo and others. In an attempt to remedy the faults that many found, Acura will be releasing the RLX Sport Hybrid in the spring. Can a new dual clutch transmission and three electric motors save the RLX from being a good car with the wrong price tag? Let's find out.





2014 / 2015 Acura RLX Review and Road Test with AcuraLink Review
Breaking into the Luxury market isn't easy. Toyota has arguably had the most success with Lexus, the only full-line luxury marque sold in America that isn't German. Infiniti gave up on trying to go head-to-head with the S-Class and 7-Series when they ditched the Q, and Cadillac has yet to have a complete and coherent strategy. Meanwhile Acura started off strong with the Legend, created a competent E/5 competitor with the all-wheel-drive RL, and then things started to fall apart. Can the RLX bring the brand back? Why do I bring up Germans in a review of a front-wheel-drive luxury sedan? Because some folks [not everyone mind you] at Acura and plenty of fan boys would like to think the brand runs with the big dogs. In truth Acura has always been a "near-luxury" brand because they lack a full-size competitor to play in the S-Class/7-Series/A8 pool. Competition In order to look at the RLX through the right lens, we need to nail down the competition. Acura would like you to believe the front-wheel-drive RLX should be pitted against the rear-wheel-drive BMW 528/535, Mercedes E350 and Lexus GS350. I think this comparison has a few problems. First, the RLX isn't as dynamic as a RWD sedan. Second, Acura's brand position is a problem. What say our readers? Should the brand matter in comparisons? Should this all be priced based? In my mind the RLX's drivetrain and the brand's near-luxury image put the Acura in direct competition with the Cadillac XTS, Lincoln MKS and Volvo S80. What about the FWD/AWD A6? Perhaps, but Audi's brand is a solid BMW/Mercedes competitor these days.

2014 Acura RLX 0-60 MPH Drive & Review: The return of All-Wheel-Steering
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2014 Acura RLX is Acura's flagship vehicle until the new NSX hits the showroom. It is stuffed full of the latest and newest technology including PAWS which in Honda speak stands for Precision All-Wheel-Steering. Get it? The brand new 2014 Acura RLX is powered by a 3.5L 310 HP V6 engine that powers the front wheels and loves to rev. In another fun and informative TFLcar drive and review we test and review the new top dog Acura from 0-60 MPH to see how fast and how well it drives with the new all wheel steering.

It would be easy to believe that P-AWS stands for an animal right organization. On the back of the new 2014 Acura RLX, the badge stands for Precision All-Wheel Steer. Sorry, no cute kittens in this video.





Acura RLX Sports Hybrid SH-AWD
ANCHOR: AT THIS YEARS LA AUTO SHOW ACURA ANNOUNCED IT WOULD BE BRINGING OUT A NEW FULL SIZE SEDAN FLAGSHIP CAR. THE UNUSUAL THING ABOUT THIS NEW ACURA IS THAT IT HAS NOT JUST ONE BUT 3 ENGINES. OUR AUTOMOTIVE EXPERT NIK MILES MANAGED TO GET HOLD OF A PROTOTYPE TO FIND OUT WHAT ALL THE FUSS IS ABOUT. NIK ON CAM: THIS IS THE 2014 ACURA RLX SPORT HYBRID SUPER HANDLING ALL WHEEL DRIVE SEDAN. NORMALLY A HYBRID CAR WOULD HAVE TWO ENGINES A GAS AND ELECTRIC BUT OF COURSE ACURA ARE CHANGING THINGS UP! AND IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE 3 MOTORS UNDER THE HOOD IN YOU WILL ONLY FIND ONE. THE OTHER TWO ARE REAR MOUNTED AT THE BACK OF THE CAR. THE TWO OTHER HYBRID MOTORS ARE MOUNTED BETWEEN THE REAR WHEELS IN THE RLX POWERING EACH WHEEL SEPARATELY. A CLEVER IDEA BECAUSE DEPENDING ON THE ROAD CONDITIONS EACH WHEEL NEEDS DIFFERENT AMOUNTS OF POWER. ITS CALLED TORQUE VECTORING POWER LEE QUOTE ABOUT ROWING A BOAT TORQUE VECTORING THOSE TWIN MOTOR UNITS LOCATED IN THE REAR SUBFRAME ARE THE FIRST OF THEIR KIND, WHEN YOU ADD THE LARGE AMOUNT OF INTERIOR ROOM AND ALL THE STANDARD FEATURES THAT COME WITH THE BASE CAR, ON PAPER THE RLX SPORT LOOKS CONSIDERABLY BETTER THAN ITS COMPETITORS THE Q60 AND THE LEXUS GS. WHEN YOU GET IN THE DRIVERS SEAT THIS LARGE SEDAN MANEUVERS LIKE A CAR HALF ITS SIZE, BUT MAINTAINS THE BIG CAR RIDE QUALITY. THE GASOLINE ENGINE IS A 3.6 LT V6 AND WHEN YOU COMBINE IT WITH THE TWO ELECTRIC HYBRIDS ENGINES YOU GET PERFORMANCE AND FUEL ECONOMY, THE RLX SPORTS HYBRID CONSUMES THE GAS OF A 4 CYLINDER ENGINE WITH THE POWER OF A V8. IN OUR TEST DRIVE WE GOT AN AVERAGE OF 31 MILES PER GALLON THAT IS ABOUT DOUBLE OF SOME OTHER LARGE CARS. THE CABIN IS FULL OF LUXURY AND USEFUL TECHNOLOGY INCLUDING A 3 ZONE CLIMATE CONTROL. NIK ON CAM: ACURA HAVE MANAGED TO KEEP MUCH OF THE TRUNK SPACE ALLOWING 4 GOLF BAGS OR ONE AUTOMOTIVE JOURNALIST. ACURA HAVE ALSO ADDED A HEAD-UP DISPLAY NIK DRIVING THE NEW RLX SPORTS HYBRID WILL BE ARRIVING IN DEALERSHIP IN THE SPRING. ALTHOUGH ACURA HAVE NOT ANNOUNCED PRICING WE UNDERSTAND IT WILL START AROUND $60,000. WHICH IS WELL EQUIPPED AND HAS MORE STANDARD FEATURES THAN MANY OF ITS COMPETITORS
