The Acura RLX Hybrid mixes a strong, fuel-efficient powertrain with the comfort and spaciousness of the brand’s largest sedan. A 3.5-liter V6 gas engine is paired with three electric motors for a total system output of 377 horsepower and 341 lb-ft of torque. Acura’s super handling all-wheel-drive system and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission are utilized.

Standard exterior features are Jewel Eye LED headlights, LED fog lights, a power moonroof, and 19-inch machine-finished alloy wheels. Inside, the RLX Hybrid gets full leather upholstery along with front seat ventilation, heated seats front and rear, tri-zone automatic climate control, a 14-speaker Krell audio system, a heated steering wheel, a power rear sunshade, and remote engine start.
