What's New in the 2020 Acura RLX?

There are no changes of note for the 2020 Acura RLX sedan. 

Which RLX is the Best?

If you're not all about performance-driving and cutting-edge electronic assistance, we think the base RLX should be enough. The price remains reasonable, and the features are quite impressive. Then again, with only $7,000 separating the Sport Hybrid from the base model, the better performance and more high-end features such as ventilated seats and the Krell audio system might be worth the jump.

2020 Acura RLX vs the competition

2019 BMW 5 Series -- The 5 Series will cost more, but offers far more advanced technology than the RLX. Although the 5 Series' ride tends be a bit on the stiff side, this rear-drive sedan still feels a little more agile in the curves, and it comes with a number of body configurations and engine choices.

2019 Audi A6 -- While the A6. isn't as powerful as the RLX Sport Hybrid, its turbocharged V6 handily outguns the standard RLX V6. There's also a new 2.0-liter turbo from which to choose. The A6's interior and exterior outshines the RLX's, as does its overall ride and handling.

2019 Infiniti Q70 -- A nicely equipped Q70 costs about the same as the RLX and offers more horsepower, but worse fuel economy. The Q70's color palate is rather drab, and its rear seats are not as accommodating as the RLX's, although the stretched L models are quite accommodating.

Used Mercedes-Benz E-Class -- A 2014-2018 E-Class offers plenty of features, power and prestige, but be sure to get a certified pre-owned model, because repairs for a car out of warranty can be pricey.
