Acura’s premium mid-size sedan offers standard AcuraWatch




The 377 horsepower, electrified 2017 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD™ goes on sale tomorrow at Acura dealerships with a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) starting at $59,9501.



The RLX Sport Hybrid is the most powerful and technologically advanced Acura sedan in history, applying a groundbreaking three-motor Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system (Sport Hybrid SH-AWD)—an exclusive Acura technology also found in the new Acura NSX supercar.



The RLX Sport Hybrid offers the most spacious five-passenger seating in its class, with a powertrain that combines V8-like performance and 4-cylinder-like fuel efficiency along with precise 'on rails' handling feel, courtesy of its electrically-powered torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system.



Featuring a direct-injected V-6 engine with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT) with built-in motor-generator powering the front wheels, and two rear electric motors for the rear wheels, the RLX Sport Hybrid generates a combined system rating of 377 horsepower3.



Anchoring the powertrain, the 3.5-liter, 310-horsepower, 24-valve SOHC i-VTEC® V-6 with Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM™) in the RLX Sport Hybrid sports a broad torque band, augmented by the instant torque of the three electric motors. 



The surprisingly quick, yet efficient Sport Hybrid also features an automatic idle-stop system to further maximize fuel efficiency, helping it to receive a top-class EPA rating of 29/30/29 mpg (city/highway/combined).



In addition, the RLX Sport Hybrid delivers a host of signature and premium Acura technologies as standard, including Acura's distinctive Jewel Eye™ LED headlights, 19-inch bright-finished wheels and next generation AcuraLink® connected car system and Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow.



The RLX Sport Hybrid also features AcuraWatch™, a comprehensive suite of safety and driver assistive technologies, as standard equipment on all trims. The AcuraWatch™ suite includes:



    Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow (LSF)
    Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS)
    Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
    Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
    Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
    Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)
    Blind Spot Information (BSI)
    Cross Traffic Monitor



Utilizing Acura's next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ II (ACE™ II) body structure, along with seven airbags (including driver's knee airbag), the RLX Sport Hybrid is anticipated to earn a 5-star NCAP Overall Vehicle safety rating, and a TOP SAFETY PICK rating from IIHS.



The 2017 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid also offers intuitive technology that reduces stress and simplifies the driving and ownership experience – with features such as Electronic Parking Brake with Automatic Brake Hold, a capless refueling system, Smart Entry/Smart Start keyless access system, easy-to-use and customize dual touch screens, "tensionless" e-pretension front seatbelts, and available rain-sensing windshield wipers, among others.



The 2017 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid is available in two grades: the feature-packed RLX Sport Hybrid with Technology Package and line-topping RLX Sport Hybrid with Advance Package, each delivering exceptional levels of technology-enhanced performance, comfort and convenience.
