Acura Announces Canadian Launch of 2014 RLX Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive Flagship Performance Sedan

  • 2014 RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD available at Acura dealerships starting today
  • RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD prices at $69,990

Markham, ON (September 15, 2014) Acura announced the 2014 RLX Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel-Drive(SH-AWD) flagship performance luxury sedan goes on-sale today across Canadian Acura dealerships with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) at $69,9901.

The 377-horsepower Acura RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD luxury-performance sedan is the first vehicle to deploy Acura’s new three-motor hybrid powertrain technology – a world first and similar powertrain will also power the Acura NSX supercar when it comes to market in 2015. The system combines a highly efficient, direct-injected V-6 engine with an all-new, Acura-designed, 7-speed dual clutch transmission with built-in electric motor and an electrically powered variant of Acura’s highly regarded torque-vectoring Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD).


This advanced new hybrid powertrain delivers exhilarating driving performance with incredibly responsive power delivery and precise, sure-footed handling performance like no other vehicle in its class. Supported by the instantaneous torque delivered by its high-output electric motors, the RLX Sport Hybrid runs a 0-100 km/h time comparable with competitor’s V8-powered machines. This performance, however, is coupled with a 8.0/7.5/7.7L/100km (city/highway/combined) NRCan fuel economy rating
2, which is in the range of 4-cylinder-powered luxury sedans.

Further information is available upon request or by visiting www.acuranews.ca.
