2016 Acura RLX

The Acura RLX splits the difference between a wagon and a more upright crossover. Though it flies mostly under the radar, the RLX has been steadily improving over the years and is now a very competent SUV. The 2016 Acura RLX is a mid-size SUV that offers families an alternative to similarly priced cars that have only 5 seats. Some models come with third-row seats with 2 extra spots for passengers. This means that is has a comfortable seating of up to 7 people.

2016 Acura RLX Interior

Interior features

The first thing you will notice with this generation of Acura is the handsome styling. Gone are the wild grille treatments now replaced by something more conservative and considerably contemporary. The rear and front of the crossover are more modern and interesting, and the overall appearance feels less economical. The interior is better finished in attractive, higher quality materials.

In the 2016 Acura RLX’s interior, a similar basic approach has been kept. Its controls and knobs are big and laid out. The controls and gauges have been fitted with very simple material and bare dashes of metallic trims. The 2016 Acura is quite refined inside with reasonably smooth rides and very little wind or road noise produced. Safety has not been compromised when compared to previous versions with incorporation of 8 standard airbags. More desirable features include sonar-based rear parking systems, navigation systems, and subscription based Safety Connect telematics systems.

The rugged appearance of all Acura RLXs is not just an image meant for marketing reasons. The 2016 Acura RLX has held the same basic wagon body for many years. The beltlines are very high, the proportions quite chunky, and the downward sloping of the rear pillars are a direct call back to the original models.

You may begin to notice some of the shortcomings of the 2016 Acura RLX’s body on its layout. Though the juke has smartly styled seating and is quite comfortable for a long highway trip, it is not up to its competition’s level of cargo space and flexibility because of its narrow body and tall floors. Its front seat looks and feel greats with the available perforated leather upholsteries that are wider and more supportive, so as to fit to quite an array of sizes.

Engine

The 2016 Acura RLX came with a 3.5 liter V6 engine which thrusts 310 HP and 272 pound ft. torque. It feels plenty quick on both off the line as well as highway speeds. Its fuel economy is rated at 17/22 miles per gallon for rear drive versions and 17/21 miles per gallon for four wheel drive models. V-6 versions are provided with either rear-wheel drives or part time 4 wheel drive systems, whilst the Trail and T.R.D. models are only provided with the part time systems. Few versions get separate full time 4 wheel drive systems that are more oriented for on road functions. Its limited versions get standard twenty inch tires and wheels, whilst other versions are fitted with 17-inchers.
