Exterior and Interior Design
The first thing I noticed when looked at the photo above are those jewel-eye LED headlights. These are one of the coolest lights I’ve seen lately. And their shape make the car’s front end look more aggressive, together with the chrome-finished grille and new bumper with integrated turn signals and fog lights. The 2014 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid rides on a set of unique 10-spoke allow wheels. On the back, the taillights are also characterized by a very interesting design. Overall, the car has that familiar Acura look, similar to other sedans.
Interior is mostly covered in both graystone and ebony high-quality leather. The dashboard is driver-focused, all controls can be easily accessed. One interesting thing is that there is not one color display, but two. One is connected to the AcuraLink infotainment system, so you can use it to connect your smartphone and/or tablet devices, play the music, access your contacts and call them using hands free option, etc. The second screen is used for the GPS navigation. Another great feature is a smart windshield. Its lower part can display all the data regarding the car’s speed, power distribution, turn-by-turn navigation, SiriusXM radio, or speed dial contacts. The cabin is spacious and very comfortable, with a lot of legroom. All seats can be both heated and cooled.
