Thrilling Performance

Sport Hybrid Powertrain

The 377 HP(2) Sport Hybrid shares supercar technology with the NSX for an immediate, powerful driving experience unmatched in the segment. Its Sport Hybrid SH-AWD® system consists of a powerful V6 engine and three electric motors: a high-output electric front motor paired with a rapid-shifting 7-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission, and an electric rear Twin Motor Unit for individual, instant torque vectoring.

V-6 P-AWS Powertrain

Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS®) takes advantage of untapped steering potential from the rear wheels. The system intuitively supports the driver and responds to steering input with immediate adjustments. This world’s-first, intelligent system adjusts the steering angle of each rear wheel independently, for increased agility and stability in corners during lane changes and braking.

Intuitive Technology

Every 2018 RLX includes an intuitive touch screen with all the controls you need at any given time. What could have resulted in over 30 buttons is now a mere nine. Additionally, with a compatible phone, a simple one-time pairing process using the navigation screen is all it takes to connect your phone to the car. Apple and Android smartphones can even download the AcuraLink® app to make pairing, among other functions, even easier. As long as your phone’s Bluetooth®(3) is enabled, the car will automatically reconnect your phone without it ever leaving your pocket or purse.
