The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Acura RLX leaves the bold ambition to other brands; it's a studied update that delivers smoother looks, quicker performance, and better fuel economy, but no more excitement. If you want a well-finished interior, plenty of power, and luxury-car ambiance all around—but you can do without the brand cachet—the 2014 Hyundai Genesis could add up as a good value.
