Who says a hybrid can’t be a luxury car? Nobody told Acura, as the automaker has made the ultimate example of power and efficiency with the 2019 Acura RLX. This premium sedan is coming to the Washington D.C. area as we bring it into the showroom here at Karen Radley Acura.

This sedan is a little different from your average options in the Acura lineup because it comes with just one package. That package being the Sport Hybrid with Advance Package. This means from beginning to end, it’s equipped with all the latest in luxury features and modern conveniences.

2019 Acura RLX power and performance

The old impression of hybrid vehicles, that they don’t have any pick-up-and-go, has been completely shattered by the 2019 Acura RLX. This model combines a 3.5-liter V6 engine with a three-motor hybrid system. Altogether, this configuration produces a total system output of 377 horsepower and 341 pound-feet of torque. Mated to it is a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with Sequential SportShift paddle shifters. This means the model provides seamless gear shifts while will allowing for driver control over the shift points.

You’ll also note that the Super-Handling All-Wheel-Drive system is standard. All around, you’d be surprised it’s a hybrid if you didn’t already know it.

What about the luxury features for which the RLX is known? Standards include the following:

  • Heated and ventilated leather-trimmed front sport seats
  • Heated rear seats
  • GPS-linked tri-zone automatic climate control
  • Keyless access with Smart entry and pushbutton ignition
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Lane keeping assist
  • Remote engine start
  • …and more!
