There's a new nose up front, which matches every other new Acura's grille.

The standard RLX comes with a 310-horsepower V6 and front-wheel drive. A new 10-speed automatic is standard.

Opt for the three-motor hybrid, though, and output jumps to 377 horsepower, and you gain two additional driven wheels.

The RLX's three-motor hybrid system is based on the NSX, as is the new MDX Hybrid.
