A year after introducing the AcuraWatch suite of features that includes adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning and blind-spot monitor, Acura has made the package standard on all trims for 2017.
Acura’s 2016 RLX luxury flagship now offers AcuraWatch (a suite of driver-assist features such as cross-traffic monitor and collision mitigation) on all trims. A Surround View monitor and Road Departure Mitigation system are new this year, and all models receive revised suspension tuning and new 19-inch alloy wheels.
About Acura RLX
The 2017 Acura RLX is the flagship sedan from Honda's luxury division. While this model isn't as well known as rivals such as the BMW 5 Series, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Audi A6 or Lexus GS, it hides quite a few tricks up its sleeve. Those open to driving a vehicle that flies below the radar will find a comfortable, powerful and competent luxury sedan that is flush with safety and driver-assist technologies. While the standard model with its front-drive setup won't make driving enthusiasts salivate, the hybrid RLX version just might. That top-line Acura sedan has a sophisticated all-wheel-drive system derived in part from the Acura NSX, and like that supercar features a hybrid powertrain that makes it powerful and remarkably efficient.
