The RLX first hit the market in 2013. It's been improved upon a few times since then, and the 2019 Acura RLX has a number of attractive features that make it an ideal car for those looking for a luxury sedan.
The vehicle has a modern, sleek look that illustrates its quality. Up front, there's a Diamond Pentagon grille that is unique to the Acura brand. There is LED lighting in both the front and rear lights, and the exposed dual exhaust tips help with the car's performance and also add another stylistic element to the exterior.
Choices of paint include a bright Platinum White Pearl, a unique Brilliant Red Metallic, and a cool Fathom Blue Pearl. Inside, there are four different color schemes, all in neutral tones that can match well with the exterior paint. All of the 2019 Acura RLX cars come equipped with 19" wheels. The standard ones are pewter gray, with shark gray and dark chrome being other options.
Each of the RLXs come with premium seats made with soft Milano leather. Piping and contrast stitching add texture and additional visual details. The legroom is generous, with over 42 inches in the front and almost 39 inches in the back. Wood grain trim and lighting inside the storage compartments help give the cabin an elegant atmosphere.

Outside the 2019 Acura RLX
The Acura comes with unique Jewel Eye LED headlights that can stand out in a crowd. The LED lighting doesn't just end there, as it's incorporated in the brake lights, turn signals integrated in the side mirrors, and even around the rear license plate.
When the weather's nice, the moonroof can be utilized in two different ways. It can either be tilted or slid open to let in fresh air. The moonroof can be opened and closed via buttons inside the car or remote controls on the key fob. There's also the ability to operate the windows remotely.
Advanced technology is incorporated in the side mirrors as well. They're heated and can be tilted down when not in use.
Inside the RLX
Both the driver and front passenger can take advantage of the heated seats when the temperatures drop. Each of the front seats can be adjusted electronically in 12 different ways, to include the amount of lumbar support offered.
The temperature of the cabin can be fine-tuned for optimal comfort. The tri-zone system can engage itself automatically, as it's GPS-linked, and it filters the air and controls the humidity as it heats and cools.
To make entry and starting up the ignition as simple as possible, the 2019 Acura RLX comes with a keyless access system. The engine can be started with just the push of a button when the fob is in close proximity.

This includes warnings that can be activated if a car starts to veer out of a lane or approach another vehicle too quickly. The RLX can, when necessary, provide assistance with steering and braking to ensure optimal spacing from other objects on the road.
A rear camera provides a wide angle of viewing when the car is in reverse, and its parking guidelines can be handy when navigating into a tight spot. When driving in slippery conditions, various stability systems can kick into gear, helping to optimize throttle and putting the appropriate pressure on the brakes.
A Modern Vehicle
Built for the forward-thinking consumer, the 2019 Acura RLX comes with a comprehensive information and entertainment system. Smartphones can be wirelessly connected, and media can be controlled through voice commands, the touchscreen display, or buttons mounted on the steering wheel.The car is ready to play HD and SiriusXM Satellite radio as well as downloaded songs or those from Pandora. To enhance the audio, there are 14 ELS Studio premium speakers placed around the cabin. Navigation is built into the car, so drivers can get access to turn-by-turn directions that can adjust to real-time traffic.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Acura RLX invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Acura RLX MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
