If you’re anything like all of us here at Acura of Peabody, you’re always excited to learn more about the latest Acura vehicles. Whether it’s just a small update or a complete redesign, we love to see what kind of changes are coming to our favorite models. One car that’s getting a refresh for the new model year is the 2018 Acura RLX, and we think that drivers in the North Andover area will be impressed.

The new Acura RLX improves on the stylish 2017 Acura RLX with some new interior and exterior upgrades. This model has received a few styling updates, including new wheels, a new hood, and improved lighting. The grille has also been updated, with a change from the “beak” grille to the new “diamond pentagon” grille, inspired by the Acura Precision Concept car.

Two versions of this new Acura vehicle will be available. Both models come equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine. The base 2018 Acura RLX can produce 310 horsepower, while the Acura RLX Sport Hybrid can put out 377 horsepower. That extra horsepower is all thanks to the addition of three electric motors and driving technology that would be right at home in the Acura NSX supercar.

No matter which model you choose, you’ll find AcuraWatch safety technology that you can depend on. Available features like Forward Collision Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Lane Departure Warning all help you stay safer every time you hit the road. There’s even the innovative Traffic Jam Assist feature. In heavy traffic the 2018 Acura RLX can stay a safe distance away from other cars.

So if you’re looking for a new vehicle that offers style, performance, and safety, ask about the 2018 Acura RLX. And while you’re at it, check out the other vehicles available here at our Acura dealership near Andover. We hope to see you soon!
