Drive to Five Review: 2014 Acura RLX Advance

Drive to Five Review: 2014 Acura RLX Advance

The Acura RLX greeted me with “Come on in, Tyson,” by illuminating its exterior door handle as I approached the driver’s side. I stepped carefully over the stainless steel door sill and settled into the ivory-skinned bucket seat. My index finger instinctively went for the start button and awakened 310 well-trained horses from their slumber. The subtle sound of Jazz music drifted through the airwaves via 14 high-end speakers, and the car’s automatic climate control immediately customized the cabin environment to my liking. This, my friends, was not just a car. It was a full-blown, Acura-fied luxury travel experience and I had just scored a front-row seat.

RLX Heritage

In its day, the Acura Legend was the biggest and the best that the Honda lineup of automobiles had to offer. When my Legend LS coupe was new in 1994, it sold for a whopping $41,885. For comparison, a top-line Honda Accord EX at the time was $19,950. The Legend flagship had features that were far ahead of its time. Twenty years later, the Acura RLX carries on that same mission: It delivers unsurpassed tech features, the most advanced safety systems in the industry, and performance levels that only sports cars could dream of in the 1990′s.

Rendered: Acura ILX Wagon

Acura ILX Wagon

This is the second time an Acura ILX Wagon has been rendered in less than a month’s time, maybe there really is a market for a new sporty hatchback from Acura? The designer Hondatalover has a few small requests though: the new ILX Wagon should be offered with a V6 engine and SH-AWD. If only it were possible.

Check out some of Hondatalover’s clean cut renderings in the gallery above.

2014 Acura RLX VIP Sedan

Official release from acuranews.com:

11/05/2013 – Las Vegas, NV.

  • Acura demonstrates tuner potential of RLX Luxury Performance Sedan and ILX Compact Luxury Sedan using Acura Genuine Accessories and top aftermarket brands

Acura today unveiled three customized sedans at the 2013 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas, including the Acura RLX VIP Sedan, created by Evasive Motorsports, the RLX Urban Luxury Sedan and Street Performance ILX, both created by MAD Industries.

“How better to amp up the inherent luxury, excitement and prestige of the Acura Brand than to partner with the enthusiast crowd and create these custom RLX and ILX sedans,” said Mike Accavitti, senior vice president of Auto Operations. “SEMA is where we go to add that little bit of spice that brings out the true performance character in our Acura lineup.”

Acura engaged MAD Industries and Evasive Motorsports, both located in Southern California, to use Acura sedans as the platform to create even more exciting and dynamic custom vehicles.
