2020 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2020 Acura RLX?

The RLX is a mid-size five-seat luxury sedan from Honda’s upmarket Acura luxury brand. The regular RLX is powered by a 310-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine that works with a 10-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the front wheels. The all-wheel-drive RLX Sport Hybrid, meanwhile, has a three-motor hybrid system that includes a 3.5-liter V-6 and a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. The Sport Hybrid’s total system output is 377 hp. Competitors include the Cadillac CT6 and Volvo S90.

What’s New on the 2020 Acura RLX?

There are no significant changes this year.

What Features in the 2020 Acura RLX Are Most Important?

The RLX is a spacious sedan that provides a relaxing ride. Unlike many of its competitors, the RLX comes only in two trims, and each has a long list of features. The RLX Sport Hybrid delivers 28 mpg in combined driving, a significant 5 mpg improvement over the regular RLX. Significant standard active safety features include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, blind spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert and adaptive cruise control.

Should I Buy the 2020 Acura RLX?

With a starting price of $62,895, including the destination charge, the RLX Sport Hybrid is $7,000 more than the regular RLX. Of the two, the Sport Hybrid stands out more for its blend of performance and fuel efficiency. Unfortunately, the car’s multimedia system isn’t the easiest to use, and the system lacks Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
