The model received new rear and front end styling, with the major focus up front being on the signature diamond pentagon grille. Other design changes include a more sculpted hood, new wheels, revamped LED taillights, dual exhaust finished and a gloss black rear diffuser.

The 2018 model also offers a new TrafficJam Assist function, as well as six new exterior paint colours, two of which are premium: Brilliant Red Metallic and Majestic Black Pearl.

Refreshing or Revolting: 2018 Acura RLX

  Refreshing or Revolting: 2018 Acura RLX <p>From too boring to too bold?</p>The 2018 Acura RLX receives the diamond pentagon grille we first saw on the 2016 Precision concept, before appearing on the 2017 MDX. The grille is larger than the shield or "beak" design of the pre-refresh RLX, but it features about as much chrome as before. The headlights sport an updated take on the "Jewel Eye" LED headlight theme, and the housing shape draws inspiration from both the Precision concept and the NSX sports car. The hood is also more sculpted, featuring bulging curves at the sides.

The 2018 Acura RDX will arrive in dealerships tomorrow across the US, while carrying a MSRP of ,800 for the entry-level FWD model. Customers interested in AcuraWatch safety tech need spend at least ,100 on the FWD model with the AcuraWatch Plus Package

The refreshed 2018 RLX is no different. All of these enhancements – and new Brilliant Red Metallic and Majestic Black Pearl exterior colors – can be viewed up close when the 2018 Acura RLX arrives in showrooms in November.

The latest RLX continues to be available in two Sport Hybrid all-wheel drive trims: the base Tech version starts at C$65,490, while the Elite starts at C$69,990. Those prices are unchanged from Canadian 2017 MSRPs, unlike in the US, where the Sport Hybrid was reduced by US4,050.

Acura says that the RLX Sport Hybrid is the most powerful model in its line-up after the NSX.

It couples that V6 engine to three electric motors and the Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system. The result is a powerful sedan that generates 377 total horsepower and 341 lb-ft of torque. The Sport Hybrid gets a motor-integrated 7-speed dual clutch transmission.

The RLX interior also gets improvements, including redesigned Milano leather seats with contrasting piping and stitching. There’s also an optional Espresso interior and black headliner.

The RLX offers features such standard features as a heads-up display, remote starts system and heated steering wheel, while a Krell audio system ventilated seats, power rear sunshade and heated rear outboard seats are available on the Elite.
