Elegant and intuitive

2016 RLX

The best-designed sedans can change how a driver feels the moment her or she gets behind the wheel, and the 2016 Acura RLX has been precision-engineered to do just that. We think Houston area drivers will love the spacious cabin, powerful engine, and long list of features (thanks to the standard Technology Package). You just might never leave the driver’s seat.



Power, efficiency, agility

With two 2016 Acura RLX performance profiles available, we’re confident there’s a version of Acura’s flagship sedan that fits your needs. The standard 3.5L V6 offers plenty of power and the control of a 6-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel–mounted paddle shifters while the RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD adds electric motors to the engine for improved power, control, and fuel economy.

  • 2016 Acura RLX Engine

    3.5L V6 Engine

    Under the hood of each RLX is a 3.5L V6 engine with 310 hp and 272 lb-ft of torque. Direct Fuel Injection and Variable Cylinder Management give the sedan improved efficiency over older V6 engines, with the RLX earning an EPA-estimated 31 highway and 20 city mpg.**

    Sport Hybrid Powertrain

    The Sport Hybrid engine adds on Acura’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) as standard, equipping the engine with three electric motors (two to the rear axle for boosted control and acceleration). The result is an elegant hybrid that’s both more powerful—it has a combined system output of 377 hp—and more efficient, with an EPA-estimated 32 highway and 28 city mpg.**

  • 2016 Acura RLX Suspension

    Suspension System

    The handling of the RLX wouldn’t be what it is without Acura’s approach to the vehicle’s suspension. A multi-link rear suspension and a double-wishbone front suspension work together with amplitude-reactive dampers to deliver improved stability and reduced road vibrations.

  • 2016 Acura RLX Precision All-Wheel Steer

    Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS)

    The first system that enables rear wheels to adjust their toe angles independently, P-AWS works with Agile Handling Assist to improve vehicle stability, enhance maneuverability, and give you a greater degree of control over the RLX.

  • 2016 Acura RLX Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters

    Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters

    The RLX gives drivers the benefits of a 6-speed automatic transmission, namely convenience and smooth shifting, without sacrificing the control a V6 engine deserves. SportShift paddle shifters allow you to take control and change gears with just a flick of the wrist. The transmission also offers multiple engine profiles for you to switch to, depending on your driving needs.

  • 2016 Acura RLX Agile Handling Assist

    Agile Handling Assist

    A standard safety system—Vehicle Stability Assist—gets put to proactive use with Agile Handling Assist. This feature improves overall performance by braking individual wheels to counter understeer or oversteer.


Inspiring style

The RLX has spent countless hours in the design stage to create its elegant style, to decide just where each of its curves should go. Features like Jewel Eye LED headlights are sculpted right into the exterior design while advanced safety features—like the multi-angle rearview camera—are cleverly placed to keep from imposing on the style.

  • 2016 Acura RLX Jewel Eye LED Headlights

    Jewel Eye LED Headlights

    Sixteen lenses focus eight LED bulbs into a bright white beam to illuminate the road ahead and give the RLX a distinctively Acura front end. Those lenses are designed to refract sunlight, too, giving the headlights a jewel-like look during the day.

  • 2016 Acura RLX Multi-View Rear Camera

    Multi-Angle Rearview Camera

    Each RLX features a rearview camera with multiple views as well as an available surround-view camera with 360-degree viewing. Just shift into reverse and the display shows what’s behind you before you back up.

  • 2016 Acura RLX Power Side Mirrors

    Power Side Mirrors

    Not only do the power mirrors conveniently tuck away when it’s time to park in a tight spot, they tilt downward automatically when you shift into reverse for a clearer look at what’s behind you. Feel free to hand the keys over to the valet; memory settings put mirrors back where they belong with the push of a button.


High tech and high class

The 2016 Acura RLX interior is sculpted to feature a spacious and welcoming design, with all of its many technology features looking just as seamlessly integrated as the console and glove box. The On-Demand Multi-Use Display, navigation, and other systems mark the RLX as a truly advanced luxury sedan.

  • 2016 Acura RLX On Demand Multi-Use Display

    On Demand Multi-Use Display (ODMD)

    With all of the features of the RLX, conventional vehicles could feature dozens of buttons, but Acura uses their innovative ODMD touchscreen. Nine buttons change functions as needed to give you convenient controls and instantly accessible climate functions to ensure everyone is comfortable.

  • 2016 Acura RLX Keyless Access

    Keyless Access System

    Never dig for your keys again with the RLX Keyless Access System. The vehicle can detect your key fob, letting you in with the push of a button. Don’t worry; the system won’t unlock the doors until you touch the handle. Then just sit behind the wheel, press the “start” button, and head off.

  • 2016 Acura RLX GPS-Linked Climate Control

    GPS-Linked Climate Control

    With standard tri-zone climate control, the RLX automatically adjusts for the comfort of the driver, front passenger, and rear passengers. This GPS-linked system is even able to track the position of the sun and adjust for the increased warmth of the sunlight.

  • 2016 Acura RLX Navigation System

    Navigation System

    The Technology Package is standard on the RLX and includes the satellite-linked navigation system with full VGA 8-inch touchscreen display. Available features like AcuraLink Real-Time Traffic with Traffic Rerouting ensure you’re on the quickest route, regardless of traffic.

  • 2016 Acura RLX ELS Studio Premium Audio System

    ELS Studio Premium Audio System

    Working with Grammy Award–winning recording engineer Elliot Scheiner, Acura developed the ELS Studio Premium Audio system. A set of 14 speakers creates audiophile-grade listening in the car, with four speakers in the rear specifically designed to enhance the listening experience for rear passengers.

  • 2016 Acura RLX Technology

    Advanced Connectivity Features

    It’s not only unsafe to text and drive; it’s also illegal in most states. Acura knows some drivers need to stay connected, though, and iPhone users can take advantage of their familiar digital concierge Siri with the standard Siri Eyes Free connectivity. Android users, don’t worry, SMS texting for Android has you covered.


Top priority

Performance, elegance, and technology are all important aspects of the RLX, but safety takes priority above them all. In addition to an advanced body design, suite of airbags, and three-point seat belts, the RLX has a long list of standard safety and accident prevention features, like Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Collision Mitigation Braking.

  • 2016 Acura RLX Lane Keeping Assist

    Lane Keeping Assist

    This safety feature monitors the markings on the road and actively works to keep your vehicle from drifting. If it senses the RLX is leaving its lane without signaling, it can alert the driver and give the wheel a tug to keep the vehicle centered.

  • 2016 Acura RLX Adaptive Cruise Control

    Adaptive Cruise Control

    Cruise control is a blessing for long drives, but needing to adjust cruising speeds can be frustrating. Adaptive Cruise Control uses radar sensors to detect the speeds of other vehicles and adjust your cruising speed as needed, even in light traffic.

  • 2016 Acura RLX Road Departure Mitigation

    Road Departure Mitigation

    The RLX is designed to only leave the pavement when you want it to, with this safety feature monitoring objects on the side of the road. If it senses you nearing the edge of the road, it warns you with audio and visual warnings, tightening the seat belts as well. If the car continues on its path, the system uses its active steering function and autonomous braking to keep the RLX in its lane.

  • Houston Acura Dealers

    Collision Mitigation Braking

    The radar system of Adaptive Cruise Control is used by this safety system to sense if you’re approaching a vehicle too quickly. If it senses a possible collision, this safety feature will alert the driver and automatically apply the brakes to slow or stop the RLX.

  • 2016 Acura RLX Tire Pressure Monitoring System

    Tire Pressure Monitoring System

    Under-inflated tires lead to unpredictable performance, which this safety feature aims to avoid. If it detects any tires have less than 75% of their required pressure, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System alerts you to inspect for leaks and re-inflate the problem tire(s).

  • Houston Acura Dealers

    Vehicle Stability Assist

    Working with antilock brakes, Vehicle Stability Assist works to reduce the dangers of oversteering or understeering, monitoring vehicle speed, lateral G-forces, individual wheel speeds, and more. If it senses oversteer or understeer, the system adjusts engine torque and applies the brakes to keep the RLX stable.
