Best of Both Worlds

Power and efficiency: Most manufacturers have a hard time reconciling these two ideals. One has to come at the expense of the other. Or does it? At Acura, the answer is "No." The RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD not only excels at both, with 377 total system horsepower and a 30 combined mpg rating, but sets-and achieves-a third goal: Extraordinary Handling.

Front Electric Motor

Working with the gasoline engine, the powerful front electric motor supplies prodigious torque during hard acceleration and extra fuel efficiency at low cruising speeds. The power unit also houses the new Motor-integrated 7-Speed DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission).

Dual Rear Electric Motors


It is revolutionary engineering: Two independent electric motors to drive the rear wheels. Through a curve, they produce positive and negative torque-also known as torque vectoring-to deliver unprecedented cornering capabilities. Working in unison, the motors provide power for standing starts, low-speed cruising and, when called upon, vigorous rolling acceleration.

What is a Sport Hybrid?


It's like nothing you've ever driven. In fact, it's like nothing anyone has ever driven. The new RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) is a watershed for performance sedans-quite simply the most powerful and technologically advanced Acura ever built. This is no mere hybrid with one eye on the gas gauge. This is the RLX Sport Hybrid with both eyes on the road ahead.
