2017 Acura RLX Pittsburgh PA
As the self-proclaimed flagship luxury sedan of Acura, there is a lot that the 2017 Acura RLX can do, and not a lot that it cannot. The word “flagship” is defined as “the best or most important thing owned or produced by a particular organization.” That is not to say that the RLX is necessarily the most important thing that Acura has ever produced, but it gives you a good idea of how much stake the brand has in it.
The RLX is one of those cars that you can judge by its cover, as its sporty and luxurious design says a lot about its other features and capabilities. Its performance is about as sporty as it gets, and inside you’ll find all of the features that you would expect to find in a luxury vehicle—including some that you may not even know about. Just when you think you have the RLX figured out, it pulls more tricks out of its sleeve.
Here at Baierl Acura, we can help you to get behind the wheel of an RLX in Pittsburgh. We have a few in our inventory which you can see by clicking through to our inventory using the button below. You can also continue reading to learn a bit more about the impressive abilities that define the Acura flagship model.
The RLX offers two options when it comes to performance. You can opt for the more conventional V6 engine, or you can go with the revolutionary three-motor system that is available exclusively with the Sport Hybrid version of the RLX. Either way, you’ll get over 300 horsepower—377 with the Sport Hybrid.
Technology drives everything that the RLX does, which makes it hard to sum it all up. What we will tell you is that you will find revolutionary features such as AcuraLink, Head-Up display, GPS-linked climate control, turn-by-turn navigation and a full suite of AcuraWatch driver assistance features to name a few.
One of the many things that makes the RLX so appealing is that its design is reserved, yet refined. It draws attention, but does so in a way that is subtler than most cars in its price range. Inside and out, you will find top-of-the-line materials that are not only impressively-attractive, but surprisingly practical as well.

Though there are a lot of things about the RLX that we could expand on, in the interest of time, we’ll focus on explaining just a few of its key features a bit further. We’ll start with the performance, as there is a lot to know about what the RLX is capable of in that department. Performance in the RLX that is driven by the six-cylinder engine is pretty self-explanatory, but the powertrain of the Sport Hybrid version deserves a bit more explanation. The system is composed of three electric motors, all of which can be put to work at one time, helping to deliver an impressive 377 horsepower. It completely redefines what a hybrid is.
As if the revolutionary three-motor system wasn’t enough, the Acura RLX Sport Hybrid comes equipped with Super Handling All-Wheel Drive, which not only makes it ideal for Pennsylvania winters, but that gives you even more of an edge in the performance department. Needless to say, with so many systems working together, the RLX delivers a drive unlike any vehicle out there. It’s why it’s the flagship model of Acura.
Here at Baierl Acura, we always look forward to introducing our customer to the RLX, just to see the looks on their faces when they first encounter it in person, and when they get the key in the ignition and push down on the pedal for the first time. It’s one of the many things that we love about working with the Acura brand each and every day. To experience what so many Pennsylvania residents already have, we suggest that you pay us a visit in Wexford. You can also head to our inventory before stopping in so that you can get acquainted with the models of the RLX that you will come face-to-face with when you arrive.
