2014 Acura RLX: Test Car Photo Gallery

2014-acura-rlx-500

Cars.com reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder says Acura's new flagship sedan is nice, but doesn't make a whole lot of sense in the automaker's lineup. The RLX is new for 2014, filling the large sedan slot left by the Acura RL, but its size makes it hard to fit in: It's either a large midsize sedan or a small full-size one. Its price, however, is full-sized.

The RLX starts at $49,345, including destination, but our test car topped out at $61,345. It was equipped with the Tech Package (navigation system with voice recognition, blind spot warning system, perforated leather trimmed seats, rain-sensing wipers and power-folding mirrors) and the Advance Package (collision mitigation braking system, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist system, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, auto dimming side mirrors and parking sensors), which added about $12,000 to the base price.

Looks nice - it has stealth luxury looks. Unfortunately, people spending this kinda cash tend to want more bling.

This is, however, not really full-sized prices. Its competitors (GS, M, 5 series, E class) are all in the same range.

Exterior is blah but the interior looks great in pictures. I think the big issue for Acura is that they are not a stand alone unit inside of Honda. Their cars are designed with the same guys that work on the Accord and Civic. Acura also needs a dedicated RWD/AWD platform for the TL/RLX similar to what BMW does with the 5/7 series and Infiniti G or Q50/M...
