Acura RLX Gets Fresh Looks, New 10-Speed Automatic for 2018
Acura has slapped its slow-selling RLX sedan with some fresh new looks and a new 10-speed transmission for the 2018 model year.
The 2018 RLX has adopted Acura’s new diamond pentagon grille, but that’s not the only modification made to the exterior. There’s also a more sculpted hood, new available wheel
designs, different LED taillights and a gloss black rear diffuser with some new exhaust tips.
Changes have also occurred beneath the bodywork. Acura
says the RLX Sport Hybrid’s all-wheel drive system has been further optimized using lessons it learned from the development of the NSX. The 3.5-liter Earth Dreams V6 and trio of electric motors remain unchanged, however, and are producing the same 377 horsepower as before.
