2018 Acura RLX – Providence
New Design, New Driving Experience: 2018 Acura RLX
The 2018 Acura RLX, Acura’s top-of-the-line luxury sports sedan that was unveiled in August, boasts a new “transformational” design that is considered to be the most substantial and sophisticated yet. The new 2018 Acura RLX will go on sale in November at Speedcraft Acurain West Warwick.
One of the many features on the 2018 Acura RLX, called “the best-performing Acura sedan ever,” is S310-HP Precision All-Wheel Steer™ paired with an all-new 10-Speed Automatic Transmission.
The AcuraWatch™ technologies, also standard equipment, and has been improved through the addition of Traffic Jam Assist, a first for Acura. On congested highways, Traffic Jam Assist helps keep the vehicle in its lane and a set interval behind a car detected ahead. This is done through Adaptive Cruise Control and Low-Speed Follow working together.
AcuraWatch™ can actually prevent or lessen the severity of a collision with its Collision Mitigation Braking System with automatic emergency braking, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow and Road Departure Mitigation. The system, using millimeter wave radar and monocular camera sensing technology, can detect other vehicles and lane markings.
2018 Acura RLX Exterior
One of the first things you’ll notice about the 2018 Acura RLX is the diamond pentagon grill – it’s the second Acura sedan to adopt it. It has a more sculpted hood, new wheel designs, newly designed, bold-looking LED taillights, dual exhaust finishers and a gloss black rear diffuser. The 2018 Acura RLX is the first Acura sedan to offer premium paint in Brilliant Red Metallic and Majestic Black Pearl.
2018 Acura RLX Interior
No surprise that the sport seats in the 2018 RLX also have been redesigned with high-contrast piping and stitching. A new, sophisticated color option is also available in Espresso. Acura included a Milano leather interior and seats as standard. The seats themselves are designed with four distinct levels of softness and firmness. Both front seats in the Acura RLX are also 12-way adjustable so every driver and passenger can find their ideal seating position for the journey .
