Redesigned 2018 Acura RLX Revealed

Acura has released some images and details regarding the reworked design of the new 2018 Acura RLX, set to be officially unveiled next week during the prestigious Monterey Automotive Week in California. The car will fit in with the manufacturer’s new design direction, dubbed Precision Crafted Performance, most notably featuring a signature diamond pentagon grille.

Many of the new RLX’s design cues are conceived to accentuate its performance leanings – according to Acura, the 2018 edition is the automaker’s most sophisticated and highest-performance sedan ever. Aside from the signature grille, the car will feature for example a more sculpted hood, new wheel designs, newly designed LED taillights, dual exhaust finishers and a gloss-black rear diffuser.

Explained Jon Ikeda, Acura vice president & general manager, "this redesign of the 2018 Acura RLX is transformational, creating road presence and styling that better reflect underlying performance capabilities of the vehicle." 

The new 2018 Acura RLX is expected to make its appearance at dealerships in November of this year.
