  • Twin Motor Unit: Electric motors placed near each of the two front wheels directs power to the wheels to provide effortless acceleration on Oak Park roads.

The Acura RLX Luxury Sedan

The Acura RLX Sport Hybrid takes the NSX technology off the track and puts it into a luxurious sedan. The elegant interior design of the Acura RLX interior is matched by the Sport Hybrid system that delivers an unbelievably smooth and sophisticated ride:

  • The outside rear wheel and interior rear wheel spin at different rates when cornering, enabling the RLX to gracefully and swiftly navigate curving roads..
  • With part of the steering distributed to the rear wheels, the driver has more overall control allowing for more precise handling.
  • These systems work automatically, so you can fully appreciate the thrill of the road.

The Acura MDX Crossover SUV

Even with the larger size of this three-row SUV, the MDX provides exceptional fuel-efficiency and handling when paired with Sport Hybrid SH-AWD technology. Whether maneuvering through chaotic street traffic, encountering challenging weather conditions in Riverside, or towing heavy cargo on a winding road, the Sport Hybrid SH-AWD system can handle it. The MDX also provides ultimate comfort and convenience, with standard and available features such as:

  • On Demand Multi-Use Display
