2014 Acura RLX Video

When Cars.com reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder calls the 2014 Acura RLX "enigmatic," that means he's puzzled to the point of speechlessness searching for the appropriate adjectives to summarize the luxury sedan. It's sort of midsize, sort of full size; the Precision All-Wheel Steer system tightens turning, but not as well as competitors; interior quality is impressive but bland; a multiscreen media system aims to simplify but complicates. If defying description — and sometimes logic — is appealing, this $61,000 riddle might make sense. Watch the video and decide.

I think the idea of steering by itself but every now and then you need to touch the wheel, what not, because it would feed you a sense of elation and leave the car itself driving while it is possible it is unsafe. Let's say if the wheel suddenly ran into a ball on the road or a bump or a soda can, let's say it needs human control to hold it down firm or else it is useless since the purpose is to give you comfort and good feeling that you are free to roam about something else for a short amount of time with confidence that the car would steer itself and that is heaven to me. I think that is a good feature that warn you if not they would encounter countless of lawsuits unnecessarily. Points taken. The car turning tight cycle is for sport drivers who drive really fast around the corners then P-AWS deos come in handy not when you casually drive around the corner, that is not the design objectives here. If you drive really fast around the corner you would see P-AWS come alive with tight circling and precision. That is when you appreciate it the most. Under wet road condition too, you would feel the dramatic lift and effects of it that none of other ordinary cars exhibit.
