Performance Preview Of The 2017 RLX: CardinaleWay Acura

Tuesday, February 7th, 2017

Acura RLX 2017

If you’re looking for a larger sized sedan sufficient enough for most activities, our CardinaleWay Acura location has the perfect vehicle for you. Edmunds says “the RLX is relatively nimble and wields enough horsepower to handle everyday tasks with ease.” We have to agree. Let us dive right in and explore the performance aspects of the 2017 Acura #RLX.

Braking and Handling

Our new 2017 RLX comes standard with front-wheel drive but if you upgrade to the hybrid engine you will get to enjoy all-wheel drive. The RLX handles with agility and precise steering. Whether going out for a night on the town or planning a trip to Boulder City, drivers and passengers will overall notice a comfortable ride.

 

Power and Acceleration

We love how Autotrader describes it; “The RLX model’s electrically assisted power steering feels direct and precise, and the 6-speed automatic transmission is responsive and quick to pick the right gear when extra throttle is administered.” The 310-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine comes standard mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, delivering good power and smooth acceleration. The hybrid, on the other hand, comes with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and three electric motors, in addition to the standard engine. Together they produce 377-horsepower. Both options are great so you definitely can’t go wrong with either model.

The Ins And Outs Of The 2016 Acura RLX

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

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.

 

If this sounds like the type of vehicle that would work well for you, please don’t hesitate to visit www.cardinalewayacura.com for a list of our current inventory. Our convenient Acura location on West Sahara Ave makes it a breeze to stop by and take a test drive. We look forward to seeing you soon at CardindaleWay Acura!

Combined, the trucks nabbed not only a new monthly, but also yearly record, rising 17.4% in December and 5.6% in all of 2016.

 

In 2016 the Acura manufacturer annual sales were 161,360. In December, Acura sales were up 1.9% over the same month in 2015. Car and truck totals were 17,148 combined.

The midsize RDX gained 20.3% in December with 5,945 vehicles sold and 2.6% for the year with 52,361 sold; best-ever totals. Our popular MDX saw its best sales month of the year and for the fifth straight year exceeded 50,000 units. It remains the all-time best-selling luxury three-row SUV in America.

 

In the sedan category, the RLX made a significant gain in December and TLX sales were up, as well. December 2016 was the best month yet for our second-generation NSX, with 68 supercars sold.

 

Jon Ikeda, who is vice president and general manager of our Acura division said “With Acura trucks leading the way and the TLX performing strongly in a challenging market for sedans, we were able to finish our 30th anniversary year on a strong note.

Acura RLX Improved Safety

Monday, September 26th, 2016

Acura 1

The Acura RLX has new standard safety equipment on the latest 2017 release. Although there is a slight increase in price, the newly redesigned car has lots of new features available. The base model trim has been removed. The RLX with the Technology package now is the entry level model. Compared to the price of the previous model, the 2017 is an even better value than its predecessor.

 

Acura chose to change up their sedan’s trim options. This decision led to the RLX having standard Acura Watch safety features. These features include automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, lane departure warning and lane keep assist. There is also a standard navigation system, automatic climate control and push button start. Drivers looking for added luxury can add the Advance package. This adds features like a surround-view camera, rear parking sensors and heated front and rear seats. The standard model has a 3.5-liter V6 engine that exerts 310 horsepower and has a six-speed automatic transmission. There is also a Sport Hybrid edition that produces 310 horsepower.

 

This new model is sure to impress drivers and critics alike. The new safety features are also a welcome addition to the RLX. If you are interested in purchasing a new Acura, we hope you will make CardinaleWay Acura your dealership of choice. We have lots of great options for you to choose from and can help you find your perfect car. For more information about the cars currently in our inventory, check out our website.

Acura’s All-Wheel Steering is a Fascinating Piece of Engineering – II

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

steering_wheel

Acura has created a global reputation of being one of the most respected manufacturers of luxury vehicles in the world. The high-performance vehicles designed by Acura are nearly unmatched in terms of reliability, luxury and quality.

Acura’s cars come fitted with cutting-edge features that put them in a league ahead of their competitors. One of these features is the All-Wheel Steering. For years, engineers around the world have sought to improve the handling capabilities of cars by allowing all four wheels to independently shift directions. The United States Army had first attempted to invent the technology to be able to do so during World War II. Firetrucks have been equipped with this kind of steering, but carmakers have been constantly looking to include this feature in domestic passenger cars as well.

Acura launched the RLX sedan that included the All-Wheel Steering feature. Acura has stated that this feature gives the vehicle’s handling a boost as it allows the driver to control the rear wheels as well. By incorporating power steering with electronics, Acura has revived the all-wheel steering option.

The brand’s engineers introduced electric actuators to be able to include precision steering. These actuators are located on either side of the car’s rear suspension. With these units, the rear wheels have the capability of steering independently of one another. The precision steering feature has proven to be rather useful to drivers, especially in closed spaces like parking lots, when it becomes much easier to navigate your car in tight spots. The Acura All-Wheel Steering feature turns itself automatically off when the car is in reverse.

Check out the Acura All-Wheel Steering and other features by test driving a model at the CardinaleWay Acura dealership.

Safety Features in the Acura RLX

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

 2016-rlx-exterior-with-advance-package-in-graphite-luster-metallic-bridge-1

The Acura RLX is the complete package with advanced technology and safety features. There are 3-point belts and head restraints on all 5 seating positions. There are additional e-pre-tensioners for the front seat belts to make the experience of wearing a seat belt less uncomfortable. The seat belt pulls the passenger back when impact is detected. The reaction time of the tensioner is as less as milliseconds post impact; they tighten automatically around the front belt to prevent the passenger from being thrown in front. There are load limiters added to the tensioners to alleviate the pressure on the chest. The two airbags in the front are accompanied by 2 side bags and a side curtain to provide coverage to the outboard occupants. There are additional knee bags on the driver’s seat. There are sensors that detect the presence of occupants in the front seat and prevent the airbags from deploying when empty or when the occupant is a child.

There are additional features to improve child safety that range from child secure seats to child airbags. LATCH (Lower Anchor and Tethers for Children) anchors LATCH compatible child seats with ease.

The Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure of the car improves the occupant protection during frontal crashes through the utilization of a connected network of structural elements that distribute crash energy evenly along the front of the vehicle. The RLX received a “Good” rating on the impact text conducted by the IIHS in 2016.
