Performance features in the 2017 Acura RLX Hybrid Sedan

Though the RLX boasts advanced technologies, reliable safety devices, and a stunning design, this car is especially notable for its Sport Hybrid SH-AWD System. But what’s so special about this system, exactly? Here are the essentials:

  • Engine Power and Efficiency –  Equipped with a dynamic 3.5L i-VTEC engine, the RLX Sport Hybrid can churn out 377 hp while also realizing an EPA-estimated 29 mpg in the city and 30 on the highway—that’s a combined rate of 29 mpg.*
  • SH-AWD – Meanwhile, it’s Sport Hybrid Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive (or SH-AWD) brings the performance and traction of all-wheel drive while taking advantage of the triple motor system of the RLX for improved control.
  • Efficiency-Maximizing Devices – In addition to its hybrid system, the RLX also comes with a number of other efficiency-maximizing devices, including Idle Stop to shut the vehicle off when it senses that you’re at a stop, enabling you to save on fuel.
  • Electronic Gear Selector – Meanwhile, its Electronic Gear Selector gives you additional space in the cabin by making it possible for you to shift gears without having to actually shift anything at all. A modern car gives you the control of a shifter without the clunkiness of it.
