Luxury and Value

This car is stylish, has all the bells and whistles and rides fantastic. Even though I have only had the car a few days I am already in love with the features and safety.


Like a Japanese Cadillac with NSX Super Car drive

We were looking to upgrade from our 2015 Acura TLX AWD Advance. This Acura RLX Sport Hybrid AWD w/ Advance package is All that and much more! We looked at the Lexus LS 460/LS 500 and GS 350,The Infinity, The Genesis, (Which are All very nice luxury cars). But this RLX Sport Hybrid AWD is a much more comfortable/quiet ride, with amazing performance! Loving the improved interior, the 360 degree camera, and Krell sound system. Exterior styling is similar to many Luxury cars. The new grill is better. Would love it more, if there was a Wagon version of this car available,(Four doors with a hatch back), which is more useful than a four door sedan. Owned for less than 1 month, so cannot yet rate reliability, However based on prior experience with Acura, it will likely be Excellent.


More Luxury, Sport, and Technology for your Money

I conducted research on luxury sport vehicles 18 months before purchasing the Acura RLX Sport Hybrid with competitors BMW, Lexus, Mercedes, Audi, and Infiniti. I ultimately chose the Acura RLX Sport Hybrid because I was able to receive more for my dollar for a Hybrid Sport Luxury vehicle. All others I researched wanted $10-20k more for the features that the RLX came with: Hybrid/gas, navigation, Krell audio system, front heated/ventilated seats, rear heated seats, heated steering wheel, collision mitigation, windshield display, auto lights, cameras all around and this model even has its own Black Box similar to that of airplanes. The ride is quite, smooth, handling is superb and the 377hp makes getting on freeways a snap. There are so many other features that I love also. It was a no-brainer to make this purchase compared to the others I mentioned, since the extras I mentioned would have cost me more to have from the others. Acura is known for it beautiful styling, dependable engines and innovative technology. Also, the buying process was seamless with Gold Coast Acura in Ventura; they honored the TrueCar pricing, delivered my car to me at no extra cost, and the sales and finance staff were very professional and personable. I love my
