Premium Luxury Sedan

2018 RLX

Make heads turn when you pull up in the redesigned 2018 Acura RLX. This sophisticated sedan has a personality all its own and offers Colorado drivers all of the performance enhancements, safety technologies, and high-end materials that make this luxury sedan such an intelligent choice.



Impressive Powertrains

If you’re shopping for a new luxury sedan, don’t get bogged down with other low performance models. Instead, let the two, impressive powertrains of the 2018 RLX prove its power to you. Both the V6 Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS) and Sport Hybrid options come with a 3.5L engine, but that’s about all they have in common. The spirited V6 P-AWS provides a 310-hp engine, and comes with a 10-speed automatic transmission and paddle shifters. The Sport Hybrid kicks things up a notch by delivering 377 hp while the 7-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission offers silky smooth shifting. Regardless of which model you choose, efficiency comes standard.

    Sport Hybrid System

    The 377 horsepower Sport Hybrid shares supercar technology with the NSX for an immediate, powerful driving experience unmatched in the segment. Its Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system consists of a powerful V6 engine and three electric motors: a high-output electric front motor paired with a rapid-shifting 7-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission, and an electric rear Twin Motor Unit for individual, instant torque vectoring.

    Precision All-Wheel Steer

    Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS) takes advantage of untapped steering potential from the rear wheels. The system intuitively supports the driver and responds to steering input with immediate adjustments. This world’s-first, intelligent system adjusts the steering angle of each rear wheel independently, for increased agility and stability in corners during lane changes and braking.

  • Rocky Mountain Acura Dealers

    Vehicle Stability Assist

    Through the use of an array of sensors and ABS, Vehicle Stability Assist can reduce the dangers of over/under steering and loss of traction by applying brakes at each wheel as needed and when necessary, reducing engine power. The response is so quick that the instability may be corrected before the driver even knows it’s occurring.

  • Rocky Mountain Acura Dealers

    Agile Handling Assist

    Agile Handling Assist uses the components of the Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) system to help improve handling. While VSA steps in to brake individual wheels to avoid oversteer or understeer, the Agile Handling Assist uses active braking, usually on an inside wheel to help the driver smoothly and easily trace the desired line through a curve with smaller steering inputs.

  • Rocky Mountain Acura Dealers

    Electronic Gear Selector

    All RLX models now come with a sleek, convenient Electronic Gear Selector in the center console. The “by wire” transmission uses pushbuttons for Drive, Neutral, and Park, and pull-levers for Reverse and the Parking Brake.

  • 2018 Acura RLX Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters

    Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters

    Standard with both the 10-speed and 7-speed transmissions, Sequential SportShift paddle shifters give you the best of two worlds – providing the convenience of precise and intuitive automatic shifting as well as shift-for-yourself control.


Get Noticed

Not all sedans look alike and the 2018 Acura RLX is proof positive with a redesigned exterior that looks more like a sports car than a sedan. For starters, the chrome exhausts on the all-new rear fascia stand out and let others know this vehicle means business. On the front end, the Diamond Pentagon Grille brings a classic style to this powerful model. Factor in other exterior features like 19-inch wheels and new, premium paint colors, and there’s no way this vehicle doesn’t get noticed.

    Jewel Eye LED Headlights

    The Jewel Eye LED headlights carve out their own space in the RLX profile. Brighter, whiter, and longer-lasting than traditional headlights, they cast a precisely focused beam far into the future.

  • 2018 Acura RLX Diamond Pentagon Grille

    Diamond Pentagon Grille

    A centerpiece of the RLX is the signature Diamond Pentagon grille. The bold shape with intricate details results in a clean appearance that signals an uptick in attitude.

  • 2018 Acura RLX Contrast Wheels

    Contrast Wheels

    All RLX models sport 19-inch wheels. An exclusive design for P-AWS and Sport Hybrid SH-AWD models, each feature a combination black paints and machined finish for a high-contrast appearance.


Technologically Sound

The cabin of the 2018 Acura RLX is where it all comes together. In terms of comfort, you’ll appreciate the seating that is not only attractive with its contrast stitching, but the use of high-quality materials throughout will impress all vehicle occupants. Additionally, this model includes a generous amount of front and rear legroom for everyone to easily stretch out and enjoy the ride. Technologically sound, the 2018 RLX keeps you connected, informed, and entertained at all times with features such as a Head-Up Display for important vehicle information that appears directly in your line of sight, an Acura navigation system for fast, safe arrivals, and two state-of-the-art audio systems to choose from for unprecedented sound quality.

  • 2018 Acura RLX Front Cabin

    Quality Cabin

    Standard on all models are seating surfaces and interior trim with remarkably soft, perforated Milano Leather. Both front seats have 12-way adjustment, which includes a lumbar support that adjusts up and down, as well as in and out. Four distinct levels of softness and firmness are designed into the seats to provide an ideal combination of comfort and support.

  • 2018 Acura RLX Smart Cabin Storage

    Smart Cabin Storage

    A soft, double-hinged armrest enables easy storage access for both driver and front passenger. The illuminated center console also has a convenient sliding smartphone tray with easy access to USB and charging ports.

  • 2018 Acura RLX Rear Seating

    Complete Comfort

    Using the same packaging techniques it employs on its smaller vehicles, at 38.8 inches, Acura gave the RLX rear legroom that’s equivalent to most competing brands’ full-size luxury sedans. Rear occupants will also enjoy their own climate control zone, which they can set with controls behind the front center console.

  • 2018 Acura RLX Head-Up Display

    Head-Up Display

    The Head-Up Display projects a transparent, easy-to-see image onto the lower portion of the windshield allowing you to view key vehicle information while keeping your eyes on the road. The primary display information is a digital speedometer reading which can be accompanied by a display for anything from navigation directions to Adaptive Cruise Control.

  • 2018 Acura RLX On Demand Multi-Use Display

    On Demand Multi-Use Display

    Acura has long been at the forefront of audio and information technology. But as the number of features have grown, so have the number of buttons on the center panel. The RLX designers, however, devised an intuitively easy way to use a touch screen with all the controls you need at any given time. What could have resulted in over 30 buttons is now a mere nine.

  • 2018 Acura RLX Smartphone Connectivity

    Smartphone Connectivity

    With a compatible phone, a simple one-time pairing process using the navigation screen is all it takes to connect your phone to the car. Apple and Android smartphones can even download the AcuraLink app to make pairing, among other functions, even easier. As long as your phone’s Bluetooth is enabled, the car will automatically reconnect your phone without it ever leaving your pocket or purse.


The Ultimate in Accident Avoidance

Expecting more from your luxury sedan is perfectly reasonable. In fact, Acura has adopted this philosophy and added AcuraWatch to every 2017 RLX model. An intuitive suite of driver assistance technologies, AcuraWatch includes various safety features to help identify your surroundings, increase your response time, and improve your overall safety. It’s this type of intelligent engineering that has earned the 2017 RLX 5-star ratings across the board from the NHTSA during front, front passenger, front side, rear side, and rollover crash tests.

  • 2018 Acura RLX Blind Spot Information System

    Blind Spot Information System

    The RLX is equipped with the Acura Blind spot information (BSI) System that can assist you when making lane changes. If the BSI detects a vehicle in the next lane’s alert zone while going over 20 MPH, an indicator appears on the side mirror. If you signal in the direction of that vehicle, the mirror indicator flashes and a warning beep sounds.

  • 2018 Acura RLX Collision Mitigation Braking System

    Collision Mitigation Braking System

    Powered by a radar transmitter mounted in the grille trim, the Collision Mitigation Braking System determines the distance and closing speed of detected objects that lie directly ahead. If you do not take action to reduce speed, models with the Advance Package automatically tug at your seat belt as a warning. All models will begin light braking.

  • 2018 Acura RLX Lane Keeping Assist System

    Lane Keeping Assist System

    Lane Keeping Assist System works proactively to keep the vehicle not only inside the lane, but in the center of the lane. If you guide the car out of a detected lane without signaling your intention to exit it, the system will slightly tug the wheel and guide the car to the center of the lane. Though the steering creates a slight tug, you can easily hold your course if you desire, as the system will not take control from you.

  • 2018 Acura RLX Road Departure Mitigation

    Road Departure Mitigation

    To help make sure that you only take the RLX off the pavement when you want to, all RLX models are equipped with Road Departure Mitigation, which can identify objects such as trees or parked cars beyond the side of the road and help you avoid them. When the system detects the RLX is about to leave the road, it warns the driver with an MID warning message, an amber head-up warning and a tightening of the seat belt.

  • Rocky Mountain Acura Dealers

    Adaptive Cruise Control

    As with a conventional system, the available Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with low-speed follow system allows you to set a desired speed, but it will also keep a set interval behind a car detected ahead of you so you can enjoy cruise control even in light traffic conditions. While cruising, engage the ACC, and the system will prompt you to select a short, medium or long interval from a vehicle detected ahead.

  • Rocky Mountain Acura Dealers

    Traffic Jam Assist

    At low speeds, the all-new Traffic Jam Assist is designed to help keep the RLX centered in a detected lane by applying progressive, precise steering inputs. Coupled with Adaptive Cruise Control, Traffic Jam Assist reduces driver workload and can activate from a complete stop.
