The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Acura RLX is an understated luxury full-sizer that puts emphasis on unique technical solutions instead of all-out style and flair. The 2015 Hyundai Genesis is no longer just a great luxury-car value; it's a legitimate alternative to the heavyweights.
