2018 Acura RLX

There's also a more sculpted hood, new available wheel designs, different LED taillights and a gloss black rear diffuser with some new exhaust tips.

The 2018 Acura RLX and RLX Sport Hybrid will make their official debut next week at the Monterey Automotive Week and will hit showrooms in November.

Inside, everything remains as per pre-facelift in terms of layout, although the 2018 model year gets upgraded materials and contact points. This marks the first Acura application of this new Honda-developed transmission; it's already in use in the 2018 Honda Odyssey minivan and soon will be installed in the redesigned 2018 Honda Accord. It's not much different from the current RLX with two screens in the center stack, tasteful wood interior accents, and lots of curves.

Acura has unveiled the updated 2018 RLX, which has noticeably undergone a complete styling makeover.

As before, the RLX is offered with the brand's Sport Hybrid Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive (Sport Hybrid SH-AWD) technology, which combines a direct-injected 3.5 litre V6, lithium-ion battery, seven-speed DCT automatic transmission and three electric motors. Total output is 377 horsepower, and Acura says learnings from the NSX help improve the RLX's handling.
