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.





2013 Toyota Camry SE
If the adage that "it's the thought that counts" held true for automakers, Toyota's offering of its best-selling midsize sedan for buyers seeking a sportier driving experience would have been awfully thoughtful. Cars.com reviewer Mike Hanley says the 2013 Camry SE offers all the regular Camry's customary comfort, roominess and general practicality with the added benefit of a V-6 for zippier highway driving. Unfortunately, numb handling doesn't realize the aspirations of the more aggressive suspension and firm ride — and don't get Hanley started on that phony-looking metal trim inside.

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.

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.

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





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 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.
