The RLX was first released by Honda’s luxury division in 2012. The model represents the successor of the RL, making it the flagship sedan at the time. However, it was discontinued in 2020.

The model was first introduced as a concept at the 2012 New York International Auto Show. This version was fairly close to what was produced later that year.

Competition for the executive car typically came from models like the Audi A6, Lexus GS, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, and Volvo S90.

The history of the RLX is fairly straightforward. Only a single generation was released during its stay on the market.

Similarly, only a single engine was offered. This was a 3.5 L V6 made by Honda’s Advanced Technology brand Earth Dreams.

In addition to this, a hybrid version called the RLX Sport Hybrid was released in 2013.

This version is fitted with three permanent-magnet synchronous AC motors. A single, more powerful motor is fitted in the front, while the two smaller motors are fitted on the rear wheels. This hybrid version also allowed for AWD, rather than the standard FWD.

Despite a single-engine option, Acura did offer a variety of transmission options. A 6-speed automatic was offered until 2017. At this point, a 10-speed automatic was introduced. The hybrid version was fitted with a 7-speed DCT motor-integrated transmission.

Only two trim levels were offered for the RLX. These were the Technology and the Advance.

Its discontinuation was mostly the result of Acura hoping to focus more on crossover SUVs because of their increasing popularity. This left the Acura TLX as the flagship sedan model in the lineup.
