Experience 2018 Acura RLX Performance First-Hand

The 2018 Acura RLX‘s performance features start noise-reducing aluminum-alloy tires with double-wishbone front and multi-link rear suspensions, but that’s not the only way it delivers track-like performance without compromising a first-class sense of comfort.

At the same time, it draws its enviable power and style from:

  • 3.5 L V6 P-AWS
  • 3.5L Sport Hybrid Powertrain with 3 Electric Motors
  • Agile Handling Assist
  • SH-AWD
  • Drive-By-Wire Throttle System
  • All-New 10-Speed Automatic Transmission
  • Motor Integrated 7-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission

Let’s take a closer look at how those forward-thinking features inform a spirited drive.

2018 Acura RLX Performance Highlights

3.5L V6 P-AWS

Utilizes Direct Gas Injection and Acura’s I-VTEC technology to command up to 310 hp at 6,500 rpm and 272 lb-ft of torque at 4,500 rpm.

3.5L Sport Hybrid Powertrain with 3 Electric Motors

With one electric motor in the transmission housing and two mounted side-by-side between the rear wheels, up to 377 hp and 341 lb-ft of torque is available.

MPG Ratings

Variable Cylinder Management helps achieve up to 20 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway* as standard, or 28 mpg city and 29 mpg highway* with Sport Hybrid models.


Sport Hybrid SH-AWD® (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive™) expertly adjusts power distribution to combine all-weather, all-terrain confidence with sportier handling.

Performance That Draws on Cutting-Edge Engineering

With up to 377 hp and 341 lb-ft of torque enlivening your commute from Westerville or Worthington into Columbus, the new Acura RLX caters to drivers seeking a finer way to travel from A to B.

Those features listed above provide a taste of Acura RLX performance, and they’re bolstered by:

  • Drive-By-Wire Throttle System: Throttle sensitivity is varied according to driving conditions to deliver a ride that adapts around your style for pitch-perfect responsiveness.
  • All-New 10-Speed Automatic Transmission: A first of its kind for front-wheel-drive vehicles, the standard transmission is compact, lightweight, and offers faster upshifts and downshifts than ever.
  • Motor Integrated 7-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission: Hybrid models use a transmission with one clutch for even gears and another for odd. Your next gear up or down is always pre-loaded for seamless performance.
  • Agile Handling Assist: Enhances Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) technology to improve cornering with small steering inputs for a ride that’s unquestionably Acura.
