2014 Acura RLX

When Cars.com reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder calls the 2014 Acura RLX "enigmatic," that means he's puzzled to the point of speechlessness searching for the appropriate adjectives to summarize the luxury sedan. It's sort of midsize, sort of full size; the Precision All-Wheel Steer system tightens turning, but not as well as competitors; interior quality is impressive but bland; a multiscreen media system aims to simplify but complicates. If defying description — and sometimes logic — is appealing, this $61,000 riddle might make sense. Watch the video and decide.

2013 Toyota Corolla S
We'd say the ever-popular Toyota Corolla is a leader in quality, comfort, style and driving -- if this were 2003. But it's 2013, and Cars.com reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder says the past decade hasn't been kind, as competitors have surpassed the stalwart compact sedan in everything from interior materials and controls to cabin space and cargo volume. Moreover, despite reliable ride comfort, a returning four-speed automatic transmission in a crowd of better-accelerating five- and six-speeds makes it seem like the 2013 Corolla is content riding on its rep. Let's hope the newly announced redesign feels otherwise.

Competitors: Cadillac XTS, BMW 5 Series, Lexus GS, Mercedes E Class What Camerons Car Reviews has to say about the RLX: Some people say "Finally!" as to meaning Acura finally as a decent flagship on their hands replacing the terribly outdated RL. The new RLX now features more technology that's worth noting and the seats are very comfortable in the RLX feeling silky smooth like a Lexus. Acura's new signature jewel LED Headlights are also a new first to Acura and it should lure some buyers in. Compare to the new Cadillac XTS, they are both great cars however the XTS will offer better technology and the Acura will be the reliability king as well as the resale value king, A V8 is not available under the hood as well as the RLX does not offer Real Wheel Drive. Power comes from a 3.5 L V6 with 6-Speed Automatic with a Hybrid coming later this year. All in all great car from Acura.





2014 / 2015 Acura RLX Review and Road Test with AcuraLink Review
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB Who is Alex? Find out here! http://vid.io/xqoF 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 Road Test Video Review
The Acura RLX is an all-new nameplate for the Japanese luxury car manufacturer. The RLX replaces the top of the line RL (which itself replaced the old Legend) and competes in the mid-sized luxury sedan category against the likes of the BMW 5-Series, Lexus GS, and Infiniti Q50. The 2014 Acura RLX starts at under $50,000 but trims featuring various audio and navigation packages can swell the price to over $60,000. Learn More about the Acura RLX http://www.autobytel.com/acura/rlx/2014/?id=32972 The model reviewed here is the RLX featuring the Advanced Package which gets you a host of safety, convenience, and technology features. Some of these systems include the Collision Mitigation Braking, Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control with low speed follow, heated and ventilated seats, and parking sensors. On the outside the 2014 Acura RLX looks much better in person than it does in photos. But this luxury sedan still blends in with the rest of the pack with its conservative style and mild lines. The front grill sports Acura's signature look while the Jewel Eye LED headlights are the latest interesting feature. The wheels are large 19-inch aluminum alloys designed to decrease noise. Out back the standard LED taillights look like a lot of other cars and are not very distinctive. The engine is a 3.5 liter V-6 featuring VTEC that makes 310 horsepower and 272 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy for the 2014 Acura RLX is 20 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway. Cylinder deactivation is a feature designed to shut down up to half of the engine's cylinder in an effort to save on gas. One way that Acura is trying to differentiate itself from other luxury manufactures is though technology packed cars. There is a laundry list of technological features that includes Precision All-Wheel Steer, Agile Handling Assist, Vehicle Stability Control, Rear View Camera, Acura Link, High End Audio, Lane Keeping Assist, Blind Spot Monitoring, Parking Sensors, and more. The 2014 Acura RLX is like a big, comfortable, cushy Honda Accord. This new flagship sedan may just have to chops to carve out a spot in a very competitive market.

2013-2014 Acura ILX 2.4 Review and Road Test
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB Who is Alex? Find out here! http://vid.io/xqoF The Acura ILX has been derided as being nothing more than a gussied-up Honda Civic, an analogy that I too applied to the compact Acura when it first arrived. But then our own Brendan McAleer caused me to question my dismissal of the ILX. How many shoppers out there are willing to option-up a base model by 50% and don't think twice about the fact their "limited" model looks just like the base model? All of a sudden the ILX, especially the 2.4L model we tested made sense to me. What was the revelation? In addition to a blunter nose, lower roof and a more aggressive character line, Acura modified the structure of the car by moving the pillars around. The A pillar moves 8 inches rearward vs the Civic giving the ILX a hood that is several inches longer and a windshield that is more deeply curved. The C pillar has also been tweaked giving the ILX a more graceful silhouette and a smaller trunk lid. While they were at it they swapped in an aluminum hood for some moderate weight savings. Once out on the road the ILX's powertrain deficiencies become obvious. The base 2.0L engine may be smoother and more refined than the 1.8 in the Civic, but compared to Buick's modern 2.4L direct injection mill, it is rough around the edges and anemic. How about the 111 horsepower ILX hybrid? It is quite possibly the only car that can make Lexus's underpowered CT 200h seem quick. But we're not here to talk about those ILX models, this is AlexOnAutos and we're interested in MOAR POWARR. The 2.4L four-cylinder is an entirely different animal. With 33% more power than the base model our 0-60 run clocked in at a respectable 7.29 seconds. That slots the ILX between the regular Verano and the Verano turbo that accomplished the same task in 6.5 (Verano turbo with the 6-speed manual). The time was closer than I thought it would be considering the 90 lb-ft of torque that separate the two but the driving experience couldn't be more different. The Verano's turbo engine provides an extremely broad torque curve which negates the need for frequent downshifting on winging mountain roads while the ILX's engine needs to scream like a leaf blower to deliver the maximum thrust. While I found the Verano's power delivery more liveable, the ILX at 7,000 RPM made me giggle. (Yes, I said that out loud.) As you would expect from the "luxury Civic Si," the ILX's shifter action is precise, clutch engagement is nearly perfect and the shifts are short. In contrast, the Verano's clutch is rubbery, vague and the shift throw is lengthy.

Video Tour of 2014 Acura RLX Tech in Bellanova White Pearl
A video Tour and Review of the 2014 Acura RLX in Bellanova White Pearl. This is the largest vehicle in the Acura lineup and the most luxurious vehicle in their lineup. The 2014 Acura RLX has the Tech and Paws feature. There are many special items in this vehicle including the jewel eye headlights, cap-less gas cap and auto-on headlights. Seacoast is the interior color I'll walk-thru the exterior and interior of the vehicle. The ride quality is very soft and smooth but if you like something more sporty, I would chose the TL instead. IMO, it's like the Lexus ES350 but an Acura RLX at a value pricing. Acura is coming out a SH-awd version for the 2015 model year. Check out the video.





2014 Acura RLX first drive from Consumer Reports
The Acura RLX has plenty of space and lots of available gadgets. Fuel economy is claimed to be best in class. But this big Acura appeals more to a luxury car buyer's rational side, rather than tugging at their emotions. See how the Acura RLX compares to other luxury sedans: http://bit.ly/STPeqr

2014 Acura RLX Text Drive & Luxury Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/acura/rlx/2014/?id=32972 The Acura RLX is an all-new nameplate that replaces the outgoing RL as the top of the line flagship model in the luxury car line-up. The 2014 Acura RLX features a handful of new signature Acura Technologies designed to take this luxury sedan to a higher level of performance and comfort. There are also some new systems that while can be found on other cars, are new to the Acura brand. The RLX has a base price of $48,450 but can quickly swell to over $60,000 when you add on various packages. What is the first Japanese brand to bring a luxury car to America? You might say Lexus or Infiniti but those answers are wrong. Honda was the first manufacturer to bring over a luxury brand with Acura in the mid 1980's. These vehicles were not only luxurious but also very innovative. Now we have the all new Acura RLX that sports many new features both inside and out. Up front the first thing that you will notice about the 2014 Acura RLX luxury sedan are the Jewel Eye LED headlights which have a very unique look. The bucktooth grille, which is now a common trait on Acura vehicles, has also made its way onto the RLX. The rest of the exterior is a bit plain and mundane but that's alright because some people do not want a luxury car that stands out. If there one area where Honda excels it is with engine technology. Acura has replaced the engine from the outgoing RL with an updated version of their V-6. This 3.5 liter engine is a bit smaller but features direct injection and puts out more power at 310 horsepower and 272 lb-ft. of torque. The transmission is a 6-speed automatic. Fuel economy is 21 MPG in the city and 30 MPG on the highway. One great feature on the RLX is the P-AWS system which stands for precision all-wheel steering. What this system does is turn the rear wheels up to 1.5 degrees for a more precise steering feel. If there is one area in which Acura excels it would be the infotainment system. The AcuraLink system delivers all sorts of information, traffic reports, and connects to your wireless devices. The ante has also been upped when it comes to the interior and the quality of the materials. As far as cargo capacity, this mid-sized luxury sedan does a good job. There is plenty of room for 5 people plus a nice sized trunk for their belongings. Acura has a place in the luxury car market especially for people who love the Honda brand. The RLX may be a larger, more refined, and more luxurious version of the award-winning Honda Accord.
