The all-wheel-drive hybrid model earned five stars in the side crash and rollover tests). In spite of the fact that the 2018 model hasn't been assessed by the IIHS, the 2016 Acura RLX earned a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ from the association for scoring a decent evaluating in all of the crash tests and a prevalent rating for its front crash anticipation. The 2016 RLX vehicle's standard Collision Mitigation Braking framework kept an impact in both the low-speed 12-mph autobrake and fast 25-mph autobrake tests.

You'll acknowledge adaptive cruise control on the off chance that you do a considerable measure of roadway driving. It gauges your taking after separation from the auto in front of you and automatically changes your speed on the off chance that they back off or on the off chance that you get excessively close.

The Acura RLX leader car is presently shockingly better prepared on account of the AcuraWatch suite of features said in "Most loved Things" now standard over the lineup. Additionally, even a base RLX accompanies cowhide inside, 12-way power-worked and warmed front seats, moonroof, multi-see rearview camera, route framework, tri-zone atmosphere control and rear-situate go through.
