The most reliable hybrid car that you can buy.

by The Stig from on Sun Dec 11 2016

Very fast , very spacious inside and very nice to drive. It has a very big engine: 3.5l v6 and 310 hp

Best balance between performance and luxury.

by skyvbucs from west carrollton, OH on Sat Mar 18 2017

The 0-60 is 5s. The fuel consumption is 27.8mpg. Include all the luxury feature except backseat ventilated seat. Same thing in Audi and Lexus should have 80k. What else can make you unsatisfying?

The best value I've seen in a long time!

by Economicalcents! from St Louis on Fri Mar 31 2017

After buying 6 Lexus's the past twenty years I thought I'd look at Acuras again and I'm glad I did! When I bought my first Lexus LS 400 twenty years ago they were an exceptional value. That is no longer the case. The Acura RLX is now my go to car. Excellent ride, handling, exceleration, great reliability,less expensive to maintain , and a great price have have brought me back to the Acura line.

Fabulous Car

by Greg the Driver from Philadelphia PA on Mon Nov 20 2017

This car has it all — unbelievable power and 28 mpg! The technology includes everything known, and it’s totally silent in electric mode. People are stunned by good this car is. It’s a sleeper.

Our Take on the 2016 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid

The verdict: The handsome 2016 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid lives and dies on its blend of performance and technology. It's superb when the technology is well-executed, as it is in the drivetrain, but is let down by a lagging, poorly executed multimedia system.

Versus the competition: The RLX Sport Hybrid offers all-wheel drive, while its closest luxury hybrid competitor — the Lexus GS 450h — does not. This gives the Acura an edge when it comes to driving, making its transition from gas-only to gas-and-electric power smoother and more predictable. Acura includes "Sport" in the RLX Sport Hybrid's name because its fuel economy will never be its calling card.
