2014 Acura RLX Sedan Debuts at the Los Angeles Auto Show
2014 Acura RLX Sedan is finally going to be revealed making its debut at the first day of Los Angeles Motor Show on 28th of November. The new Acura flagship sedan will be equipped with wide range of new technologies some of them exclusively for this model.
For instance, there will be included the Precision All Wheel Steer™ system, the next-generation AcuraLink® Communication System, and the all-new Jewel Eye™ LED headlamps, sophistication and increased comfort.
The front-wheel-drive version of the 2014 RLX will use Acura's new Precision All Wheel Steer™ system. The latter automatically makes slight adjustments to the relative rear wheel (toe) angles by employing electrically controlled actuators. This results in an extraordinary level of cornering control and steering precision.
In addition, the front-wheel-drive model will be powered by all-new 3.5-liter direct-injected VTEC® V-6 engine producing 310 horsepower (228 kW).
Furthermore, the new sedan will be equipped with the next-generation AcuraLink®, which includes built-in two-way cellular communication and deliver a variety of new convenience features. Some of them for example are airbag deployment notification, stolen vehicle tracking, remote locking and unlocking, security alarm notification and concierge service.
Next t be highlighted here is also the exclusive Jewel Eye™ LED headlamps use a dual-stacked array of multiple high-intensity LED lamps, with ultra-reflective optical lenses and high-gloss trim. In fact, this provides great down-the-road illumination and gives the vehicle one-of-a-kind bright-eyed look in both daytime and nighttime conditions.
Typical for Acura, the new model will feature excellent passive and active safety features. These include a Collision Mitigation Braking System™, Lane Keep Assist System, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, front, side and side-curtain airbags for the driver and front passenger, and a driver's knee airbag.
A prominent feature here is the second generation of Acura's Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, with reinforced front frame members for further improved frontal crash energy management.
