The 2018 Acura RLX is the flagship sedan from the luxury division of Honda. The RLX tends to fly beneath the radar compared to more popular rivals like the BMW 5 Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Audi A6 and Lexus GS, but look closer and you'll find a cutting-edge powertrain and a strong value proposition.
