2018 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid First Drive Review

For a variety of reasons the Acura RLX hasn’t sold particularly well in America but Acura is hoping to change that with the refreshed 2018 model. In addition to adding more standard equipment, dropping the price on the Sport Hybrid model and making Acura’s active safety systems standard on all models, this is the first Acura to get their new Traffic Jam Assist system that steers for you on certain low speed situations. The RLX is still likely to be a low volume car but with its lower price tag, new looks and standard features it is now the best mid sized luxury hybrid buy in America.
