The Car Connection's Take

8.0
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. The 2014 Lincoln MKS doesn't fly in the same business class with the best German luxosedans, but it's a quiet, capable alternative in the second tier of big, upscale sedans.
