The Ins And Outs Of The 2016 Acura RLX

Acura Rlx

When it comes to a safe and reliable luxury sedan, the 2016 Acura RLX doesn’t skip a beat. In a class of large vehicles, it has the highest safety rating. Not only will you feel secure when you take a ride through Sin City in this model but you’ll unquestionably feel the power it has under its hood.


Safety is one category you hope ranks high when looking for a new vehicle. Our customers will be happy to hear that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the RLX five-stars in its crash test rating. It also earned a Good rating in all five crash tests performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Our Acura manufacturer covers the 2016 RLX with a six-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty and a four-year/50,000-mile warranty.


The RLX is also equipped with driver assistance features that help our customers drive with confidence. Lane departure and forward collision warning features come standard in the vehicle. If you accidentally drift or the vehicle in front of you stops suddenly, the lane departure warning system will alert you. Another standard is adaptive cruise control which lets you select a short, medium or long following distance behind the vehicle in front of you. Typically, cruise control is used during highway driving, but our adaptive cruise control feature works well driving at slower speeds on city streets. Additional add-on options include front and rear parking sensors, a surround-view camera, lane keep assist and blind spot monitoring. These features will definitely keep our drivers feeling comfortable whether attempting to pull into a tight parking spot or driving in a relentless Las Vegas traffic jams.


Aside from safety, the front-wheel drive #RLX also performs impressively while earning an EPA-estimated 31 miles per gallon on the highway and 20 mpg in the city. In the luxury large vehicle class, it has one of the best fuel economy ratings. Hard to believe when there’s a V6 engine under the hood. Although the six-speed automatic transmission is quiet and responsive, drivers can improve acceleration by revving up the engine to higher rpms before shifting in the sport mode. In 2016, Acura introduced an all-wheel drive Sport Hybrid RLX able to produce 377 horsepower. We see three additional electric motors combined with the same V6 engine as our base RLX. This model receives a striking EPA-estimated 32 mpg on the highway and 28 mpg in the city.
